We started by addressing the needs and concerns of the best women in the sport of cycling, who provided critical input into chamois placement, construction and design. We used premium Italian Lycra-based fabric with a light and supportive feel. Designed to be compressive for the highest levels of muscular support, the refined fit of the Signature Short enhances every ride. Featuring a yoga-style waist for excellent freedom of movement and added comfort and breathability. Finally, through many thousands of miles of testing, we've developed our custom top-spec chamois which has been universally loved by all who have tested it.
Fabric: 78% Recycled Polyamide / 22% Recycled Elastane
Made in: Italy
Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing. Due to the compressive nature of the fabrics, you will be able to fit into more than one size. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size:

Got these for my finacée. She loves them, they're really good quality and comfortable but they run a bit small (she's usually a small but a medium size would probably fit more comfortably). It seems like the sizing chart doesn't actually reflect the size of the pants.
Thank you so much for the honest review and feedback on the sizing chart. If you haven't contacted customer service yet, we do offer a 30-day Signature Guarantee where you can try any product and return within 30 days if it isn't meeting your needs. Feel free to reach out to email@example.com if you have not already, and we'll take care of you. - Tim
These are the ONLY cycling shorts I wear! For a long time, I struggled to find a reliable pair of shorts that would be comfortable to sit in for long rides. These really are incredible and I have no discomfort or pain after 4+ hours in the saddle. Also a huge fan of their colorful jerseys.
The most comfortable riding shorts i have experienced for long rides. I don’t even bother wearing anything else.
These are very good cycling shorts -- not my favorite, but definitely very high quality and a B+/A- in comfort, which they should be given the price!
I really wanted to love these shorts. They are incredibly well-made of high quality materials and a great chamois. In the end the waist band and cut didn't work for me. I found the band too narrow in the front and the cut way too high in the back, reaching only an inch or so below my sports bra. I wear shorts instead of bibs precisely because I don't like a lot of extra coverage. For reference, I'm 5'6" and 124lbs with an average torso length. By comparison, I prefer the waistband and cut of Giordana's FR-C shorts so will be sticking with them for now, but I'll be back if the cut changes in the future. Super grateful for Velocio's wonderful return policy!
