We started by addressing the needs and concerns of the best women in the sport of cycling, who provided critical input into chamois placement, construction and design. We used premium Italian Lycra-based fabric with a light and supportive feel. Designed to be compressive for the highest levels of muscular support, the refined fit of the Signature Short enhances every ride. Featuring a yoga-style waist for excellent freedom of movement and added comfort and breathability. Finally, through many thousands of miles of testing, we've developed our custom top-spec chamois which has been universally loved by all who have tested it.
Fabric: 78% Recycled Polyamide / 22% Recycled Elastane
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.
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:

I bought these to replace some worn out shorts to have one non-bib pair for shorter rides. When I first tried on the Signature Short, I initially thought they were a bit too snug in the waist but decided to keep them and try them out. I have worn these now a few times and find the waist to be very comfortable. They are compressive, and sit beautifully on the bike and I think the waist has a bit more "give" after a few washes. I am so glad I kept these shorts, they are easy to throw on and go and I find them very comfortable, even for longer rides. For reference, I am 5'7", 124 pounds, with 29" waist and 39" hips. Although I could fit in the small based on the sizing chart, I go for the medium luxe bibs and find the sizing consistent for this pair, too.
When I first tried these shorts on I didn't think I'd like them. They were longer than I typically like and higher on my waist than I prefer. And then I rode in them. I love them. I just ordered my 4th pair--not because my other 3 pairs are wearing down, but because I don't want to ride in any other shorts ever. Thank you for making these. And thank you for allowing me to feel aligned with my environmental values when I support velocio. Oh and I live in Florida. I've worn these shorts for 100-mile rides in real feel temperatures of over 100-degrees and everything has been perfect.
These are great. Recommend them to everyone.
I went on one long ride with them and they were super comfortable.
Love the waist band, much better than any other shorts I’ve had. Check the sizing chart. I ordered the same size as my bids and they were too small.
