Men's CONCEPT Bib Short

When car makers release CONCEPT cars, more often than not, they are ideas. Best intentions towards a final design that compromises. 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.

This new design means the chamois stays in place while you pedal, conforming to your body and matching your every move. 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.

In addition to the proprietary pad, 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.


    • Two fabrics carefully positioned to maximize breathability and balance compression.
    • Minimal seams and laser cut ventilation
    • Microfiber leg gripper and aerated bib straps
    • Proprietary invisible chamois design provides unmatched performance and friction-free comfort
    • New race-fit patterning provides our most articulated fit
    • Large team-inspired reflective logos
  • Composition: 70% Polyamide / 30% 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.

  • 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?
    All of our bib shorts are designed to fit consistently across the size range, meaning if you wear as size L in our Signature Bib Shorts, you will also likely find the size L to be the best fit in our other bib shorts. In terms of fit, the main difference is the amount of compression each bib short offers. LUXE is our most compressive, followed by CONCEPT. 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. Signature is what we'd call medium compression - still higher than most other brands, but not as compressive as the two mentioned above. Foundation is very similar to Signature. And Ultralight is the least compressive, primarily due to the ultra light-weight fabric.

    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 further dial in your fit.

Still unsure or need help? No problem! Email us at service@velocio.cc. Remember that every piece is backed by our Signature Guarantee.

    Very happy

    If I need to buy another bib short I’m definitely buying velocio again! I just completed a 1000km (600 miles) bike trip around Taiwan in 6 days and I’m glad I had these bib shorts for the trip! I rode them for 5 out of 6 days and would feel a bit sore at times after 5+hours of riding, but towards the end of the trip it didn’t bother me too much. It performed much better than my rapha pro team 2 bib shorts which I use to like so these will be my go to bib shorts for long rides. I haven’t tried the luxe bib shorts so can’t compare. Yes expensive, but overall very happy with the purchase and not sure how I’d survive the trip I didn’t have them! I’m 170cm, 62kg (5’7, 140 pounds) and size small fit great.

    New favorite bibs

    Honestly, I was hesitant to believe that the Concept bib short could be noticeably better than the Luxe bib short, which has been my favorite set of bibs for the last ~1-2 years. But as soon as I put them on and got on my bike, I could feel the difference. They just disappear, but provide more support than anything else I've worn. The chamois is brilliant, and I love it. The Luxe bibs are still excellent and I'd recommend them to anyone, but the Concept bibs are my new go-to when I'm planning something big on my bike.

    Sizes run small

    Overall, I like the products fit and feel. However, I ordered my size based on comparing my size to the example of the size the model was wearing per your website. I found that ordering 1-2 sizes larger than what I thought I would need worked well. Regardless, the return/exchange procedure was easy and stress free, and I had the correct size with only a few days delay.

    Awesome bib shorts

    Truly nice shorts. For me the chamois is too narrow at the center. If you take the width of the Lux chamois it would be perfect. The actual chamois is pretty nice.
