Materials & Care

Fabric Content

Fabric: 88% Biodegradable Polyamide,12% Non-toxic Elastane

Made in LT

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.

So far, so good.

Incredibly soft, and I hope durable (time will tell). My only gripe about these shorts is of course the price. I have never paid this much for a pair of shorts, or pants, but I wanted to try what sounded like the ideal fabric. Technical and biodegradable. I'm always on the look out for good causal cycling shorts and have tried other shorts by Giro and Gore. Both are good, but the Velocio Recon Shorts really stand out. The fabric is really incredible, smooth feeling, no scratchiness. If Velocio can figure out how to lower the price a bit, I will certainly purchase more. Like the zippered pockets, and the back stash pocket. Keep blowing my mind Velocio!

Pricey but worth it.

Good fit - material does not hinder movement - good enough for trail or office. I wear them day after day to ride, hike, climb, work or hang with no noticeable signs of wear.
