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.
Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chaffing. 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.

Overall the trail shorts are really nice. Materials are excellent. However the large shorts run really large and the leg covered my knee. Not sure why so long. Also, the belt loosens while riding which can be really frustrating. I exchanged the large for medium and the fit is much better. Us timer service was the best.
light, breathable, stretchy, fits well, love the updated slightly longer cut.
featherweight, comfortable, soft...I can wear these on a gravel ride or out to the bar and anything in between. great quality!
These shorts are ok, but they do have some annoyances. The biggest problem is the belt strap doesn’t stay cinched, so then they slide down, so then you have some explaining to do. If you wrap and tuck the tail, all good, arrest avoided, but a wrap and tuck shouldn’t be a thing that has to happen. Pockets are good. They look sharp and dry quick. A little slippery on the saddle, but better that than sticky. The combo with the Trail mesh bibs is really nice. As I said, ok shorts but missing a bit of refinement that I’ve come to expect from Velocio. I’m glad I have a pair, but I don’t want two.
