A totally new take on the summer base layer, the Radiator uses a unique mesh fabric developed by Polartec, made of polyester and a natural fiber derived from wood pulp called Tencel. The fabric regulates body temp far better than synthetic fiber alone. Hence, the Radiator keeps you comfortable through evaporative cooling, by absorbing moisture (Tencel) and drying (polyester) over the surface. The result is a supremely comfortable base layer that performs throughout the summer months and warm to hot climates.

Mesh structure and flat lock construction make for the perfect ultralight summer base layer, designed to be worn in conjunction with our jerseys and bib shorts for the best combination of comfort and performance.


    • Polartec Delta mesh fabric
    • Engineered evaporative cooling through structure and composition
    • Flat lock seams, strategically placed for minimal friction
    • Tag free design
  • Fabric: 51% Polyester / 45% Tencel / 4% Lycra
    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.

Women's Fit & Sizing

Velocio fit is designed for comfort and performance. Starting with a form-fit silhouette, we've developed our women's-specific patterns from the ground up to compliment a wide range of body types and riding styles. All of our apparel is tailored for on-bike fit to ensure optimal muscle support and range of motion while riding. You may find certain aspects of our garments to seem "off" while standing, yet once you start pedaling these points disappear. 

Velocio bibs and shorts are made from highly compressive performance fabric for excellent support through an athletic fit. They will feel small when you first put them on and will often require washing and a few rides for them to "break in." We strongly believe in the benefits of compression - both in its performance benefits, as well as in its long-distance comfort - and we've designed all of our bibs with this in mind.

Should you want a more relaxed fit, we recommend ordering a size up. Find your fit through our sizing tables below.


 

Women's sizing guide

Taking your measurements

Chest - Start by placing a measuring tape around the largest part of your chest. The tape should be flat but not too snug.

Waist - Your natural waist lies between your bottom ribs and hip bones, close to the navel. To measure, breathe deeply, relax your stomach and lie the tape measure flat around your waist, allowing for a ¼ inch of slack.

Hip - Measured around the widest point of your hips.

    Women's Radiator SL Base Layer

    The Radiator base layer is my go to for an extra layer all year round! It's light, fitted, and comfortable for layering under bibs and jerseys. Love it!

    Best Base layer I’ve had

    I already had one of these, I just added a couple more. Getting rid of some of the ones I had from other brands now that I have these. They are so much more comfortable. The fit is excellent. They keep you cool when it gets hot, but when it’s a little chilly, add a very slight extra layer. Perfect (non cold weather) under layer.
