Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. Its 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. Youll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86F (30C) 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. Dont 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.

Read a few reviews were people complained about the stitching not being flat. I did not notice this at all when wearing them. I’ve ridden about 200 miles in them now and have no complaints. They are extremely comfortable. I own another pair of lightweight tights from another brand and I plan to give those away because I will never opt for them over the Luxe bib tight.
I’ve been wearing these tights for a couple of weeks. The compression is fantastic, the padding is just right probably the best bibs I’ve owned in my 50+ years of riding.This is my first experience with Velocio. I will definitely be purchasing Luxe bib shorts in the very near future.
Took my first ride on a medium warm day (50-60s in Colorado May). So obviously a bit warm for that day I chose to wear them, but overall great quality bib. Fit PERFECT, offer a little bit of compression and plenty of warmth. Ready for fall/winter to try them on cooler temps
I hate knee and leg warmers. They're hard to argue with from a function/versatility perspective. They allow you to wear shorts past the point when exposed knees are a good idea. But wearing them in practice is an exercise in frustration. They are difficult to stay put and you end up with a second seam on your thigh which can lead to chaffing or just end up looking weird. The Velocio Luxe Big Tights seem like they don't have much of a purpose. You'd think if it's cold enough for tights you're going to want something with a fleece lining. These aren't a replacement for those type of tights. Where these excel are on days when you'd normally reach for shorts and knee warmers. You'd get the additional knee coverage and warmth, but without the frustration of warmers. The fit is in line with other Velocio Luxe shorts. I only rate it 4 stars because I personally prefer the strap type featured on the Luxe 2 over the suspender style of the Luxe shorts.
I reallyyyyy wanted to love these like I love the winter Zero Bibs. But these do not have flat seams like the Zeros and so they dig into my legs, feeling weird and leaving impressions after long rides. I know flat seams are possible with thin material, as they show up in a couple other luxury brands. I’m admittedly sensitive to seams, so this may not be an issue for others. I love everything else about the bibs, so it’s kindof a bummer.
