Updates for 2021

  • New generation FlyFree bib upper without mesh panel is our lightest to date
  • New 7cm raw cut leg band with internal silicone print replaces elastic gripper 

It grew from our original bib short and our commitment to never sacrifice performance, to design derivative products or to make compromises in the name of ease or profit. The CONCEPT Bib Short is the evolution of our now much-beloved bib shorts, a race-ready design aimed at the highest levels of performance. This is what a pro rider would wear if they could buy their own bibs. With a new chamois developed exclusively for the CONCEPT bib shorts using several techniques, this pad is designed to “float” as its totally integrated into the patterning of the short, meaning fewer seams and chafe points, and a more fluid pedaling motion.

Additionally this new design means the chamois stays in place while you pedal, conforming to your body and matching your every move. It also means that our FlyFree technology was added to make pee breaks easy, even on the days you aren’t driving a break or smashing a QOM. From the outside, it's the cleanest and most streamlined bib short available on the market today and sets a new standard for what's possible for high performance cycling apparel.

Finally, adding to the proprietary pad, we employed new straps, leg grippers and an aero construction mixing fabrics with complimentary compression for the ultimate performing bib short. The result is more than a pinnacle product, it’s a concept: there is a better way.

A Note on Fit and Sizing: All of our bib shorts and tights are designed to be compressive. There are many benefits of compression for cyclists, and finding the right size bib short with the optimum fit is key.

  • 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.

  • What is the inseam length of your bib shorts?
    As a general rule of thumb, all of our bib shorts are designed to be as close to the same length as possible. Different fabrics have different fits and elasticity so this is not always an exact science. As a baseline, however, our Women's bib shorts are 22cm (8.7") from the center crotch to the leg gripper in size M, with +/- 1.5cm (0.6") per size grading. Our Men's bib shorts are 25.5cm (10") in size M, with +/- 1.5cm (0.6") per size grading.

    What is the main fit difference between bib short models?
    In terms of fit, the main difference is the amount of compression each bib short offers. CONCEPT is our most compressive, followed by LUXE. We hear often that these two look quite small and take a bit of effort to get on - trust us when we say it's effort well spent. The Ultralight bibs are very high on the compression ratings as well - the new stretch woven fabric adds great compression and breathability without adding weight. Signature is what we'd call medium compression - still higher than most other brands, but not as compressive as the three mentioned above. And then Foundation is slightly less compressive than Signature.

    My bibs feel super tight when I try them on for the first time! Help?!
    All of our bibs are designed for optimal fit on the bike. When trying-on or wearing your bibs for the first time, try them on the bike (or mimicking on the bike posture) to feel an ideal approximation of fit. Different parts of the bibs will fit and feel more comfortable in the riding position vs. standing upright. Also, all of our bib shorts will “break-in” after a few rides and washes, conforming to the shape of the rider. Hence, we offer our 30-Day Signature Guarantee for a complete test. The best bibs don’t feel perfect standing in front of a mirror - the design makes pedaling better.

    Are the chamois the same in all your bib shorts?
    We’ve developed several chamois for our line that are proprietary to Velocio. These have been developed over years of testing and feedback to be the most comfortable and supportive available for any distance or type of riding. Our Signature chamois has been refined since our launch and the latest iteration is a dual-density pad, incorporating an anti-vibration super high density layer with a supportive high density layer to create all-day comfort and support. It’s available in anatomic specific versions in our LUXE, Signature, and Ultralight bib shorts. The CONCEPT bib shorts have a proprietary fully-integrated chamois. This innovative design is comprised of a multi-density padding that is attached to the short by a highly elastic liner, creating a floating pad that conforms to every movement with minimal bulk and allows for a uniquely free pedaling motion. Lastly, the Foundation bib short uses a pared back version of our Signature pad with a single high-density foam and recycled top fabric, creating a great mid-distance pad with medium support and slimmer form factor.

Sizing Guide

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:

  • Find your weight along the top of the table.
  • Look down the column to find your appropriate size.
  • Each size has a height range based on weight.
  • If you find that you are on the upper or lower end of height and weight for a given size, the garment will have more or less compression respectively.
  • Use the Dimensions Details chart to futher dial in your fit.

    Favorite bibs!!!

    These are my new favorite bibs! I use them for mountain biking. Wonderful for long rides. I prefer the new fitting of the band at the bottom of short that has the thigh gripper. This keeps the bottom of the short in place. As always, the ease of a bathroom break without a wardrobe change. The chamois is thinner than my first pair of bibs but without quality compromise. The chamois is also placed in the short in a more seamless way. These are definitely my new favorites!vReally happy I stepped up and purchased these.

    I’ve used prior bib by Velocio, the new concept model is not my favorite. The double chamois layer feels odd and the cushion areas seem smaller. Still giving it a chance as the looks are good and material are luxurious

    Nearly faultless

    These are by far the most comfortable bibs I have ever worn, including 6-8 hour rides. Give them a few wears and washes, they felt a little awkward on out of the bag. My only two gripes are that I wish the inseam were 1” longer. I’m only 5’4” and they feel too short. They do stay in place though. And second, the front ribbed fabric is slightly see through (can see my base layer). Bent over on the bike not really an issue. But otherwise, they are so comfortable that I try to save them for long rides, but if I was a millionaire they would be the only bib shorts I wear (long live the knickers when it’s cool out). I’m 5’4” 120 and these fit well.

    The only bib I wear now!

    I absolutely love these bibs! I’ve put a lot of miles on them this summer and they are holding up amazing well. Fit and compression is perfect.

    My favorites!

    These bibs are fantastic! I wish all shorts had this chamois! I went out for three hours and didn't think about them once. They are *compressive*. I'm a size large based on the chart and dimensions (5'9", 175 lbs, 40.5 inch hips) and they do need to be 'eased' on, but once there they do their job! I also really appreciate Velocio's very broad size range. As someone who is shrinking, but still sized out of many brands, they have earned a long-term customer in me. (I only wish the price were not quite so high, it seems to have risen, recently)
