The result of a year of development, countless prototypes and hours of testing and feedback, here’s what went into creating the Velocio Signature Bib Short to be better from the pattern to the final sew:
Cut: Every seam was considered to develop a pattern that minimizes chafing and moves with the rider in the cycling position.
Fabric: The most durable, most compact and highest quality Italian Lycra available is the foundation of the Velocio Signature Bib Short. Very soft, yet providing amazing feel and muscle support, the fabric promises all-day comfort and performance in the saddle. The advantage is a bib that will last for years and retain its shape even after miles of sweat and thousands of wash cycles.
Upper: Our upper is unique. It’s designed to keep the bibs in place without adding extra bulk or inhibiting breathability. A Y-back design minimizes coverage and enhances breathability, while an ultralight and open mesh front panel acts to stabilize the straps so they don’t splay outward or dig into the shoulders. The result is a bib upper that provides the right amount of tension without any pressure points. Finally, a bit of coverage on the front for a flattering silhouette turns a functional detail into a beautiful design.
Leg Gripper: The leg gripper is made from a lycra band that has the same tension as the lycra of the short. It’s ultra flat, smooth and supple, creating a finish to the short that won’t pinch, restrict blood flow or cause any unflattering tightness. A soft printed silicone on the inside offers enough grip to keep the shorts in place, while still going unnoticed against your skin.
Chamois: The Velocio Signature Bib Short has the best chamois available. Period. Chosen over a dozen different pads through careful testing from the best manufacturers, we customized our own pad to fit the needs of the most demanding cyclists we know. There’s no fancy thermoformed indentations to pinch. No hard edges to cause unwanted irritation. Just perfectly placed padding where you need it, the softest finish available and a beautifully simple design, anatomically ideal for women.
