  • 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 futher 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.

    my fave 3 hour + shorts

    These are my go-to 3 hour + bibs. Just the right amount of support. Just the right amount of stretch. No bulk. You basically forget you have them on. I just wish there was a size between small and medium, which is where I fall. The mediums are just a bit too big and long in the leg. The smalls just a bit too tight.

    amazing chamois but mesh front seems un-needed

    I love the chamois of these shorts but the mesh front holds the straps right across the front of my chest, rather then letting them go to the side, as well as making them a bit hot. Due to how the straps go across my chest, angle where the straps hit my collar bone are on the edge rather than flat, so uncomfortable for me, maybe a softer strap would not cause this problem? Bummer because other than that I do like the shorts.

    Exceptional quality

    Before purchasing these bibs I didn’t usually ride in a chamois, but had tried on numerous pairs of cycling shorts made by brands like Pearl Izumi that always felt ill-fitting. These days I’m riding 80 miles a week so I decided to spring for the real deal and have absolutely no regrets! The high quality fabric on these bibs is apparent before you even put them on; it’s silky, light, but supportive. Similarly, the chamois gives enough padding without getting in the way and the design allows movement. I wore these twice before washing and then once after. I considered sizing down because I definitely have a bit of room in them, especially in the length (I am a solid medium based on size charts), but because the leg band is still fairly tight I was reluctant to do so. If my quads were less “athletic” I think I would me happier in the small. Hoping the band becomes more comfortable with time. Fortunately, because of the amazing fabric, nothing bunches or sags even though these are running a tad big on me. My only gripe is that the inseam feels long, and the short hits right at my knee. They would be more comfortable for me if they were even an inch shorter. All in all, I highly recommend these if you’re willing to spring for them.

    Great chamois, size not right

    Have a pair in XL and wanted to try the L, which is what is recommended on your site. As it turns out the L are a bit too short on the straps for me. They pulled on my shoulders and I couldn’t use fly free without taking straps off the shoulder. This is not a problem so much with the product fit as with my proportions. Easily exchanged for XL which is so comfortable! Great service.

    Had to return.

    The weird front straps showed at the collar of the jersey even when zipped all the way up. It felt like walking around with my underwear showing. Otherwise I would have kept them.
