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.


    • 100% recycled Premium Italian Compression Lycra: balanced compression & breathability, excellent opacity
    • High Gauge for excellent recovery and second skin fit
    • 6-Panel design: anatomically cut, compressive and supportive to enhance performance
    • Seamless Microfiber leg gripper
    • Reflective logos for added visibility
    • Proprietary Signature Chamois developed with Cytech [EIT]
    • Yoga style waist band for comfort and support
  • 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.

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.

    Women's Signature Short

    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!

    Comfort

    Comfortable. Chamois does not feel like a diaper. I like the way the shorts are made to grip to your legs and the length of the shorts. Got caught in rain wearing the shorts and thought they do not feel soggy. Shorts dry fast.

    Padding not in right place

    I liked everything about the shorts, fit, compression but the placement of the padding seemed way off.

    Fits great with comfy, supportive chamois

    This short fits perfectly and the chamois is comfortable for long rides of 4 hours+. I have challenges finding comfortable chamois that don’t bunch up but are thick enough to provide cushioning and support. I also have issues with saddle sores, chafing, etc but not with these shorts. I am an hourglass shape with thick thighs. The waist, hips, and thighs fit perfectly too. In some brands the waist is too big and the thighs are too small. Thankfully these fit just right.

    Awesome short

    Excellent. The fit and chamois are perfect. Snug like they should be and protective in the right places.
