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.


    • Premium Italian Compression Lycra: balanced compression & breathability, excellent opacity

    • 6-Panel design: anatomically cut, compressive and supportive to enhance performance

    • Proprietary Signature Chamois developed with Cytech [EIT]

  • 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.

    I like my shorts

    Very comfortable, no chafing. Fit very well . And they dry fast . Yes they’re pricey, but given the hours I’m on my bike ,worth it.

    signature shorts

    Love these shorts. Just the right amount of support. After having to return them for the next size up, couldn't be happier. They do seem to run a little small. Will buy again.

    Great chamois, weird waistline

    Had to return and get one size up. Even the larger size creates a weird muffin top because of the v-line at the navel. My butt feels great though, even after a 100 mile ride or a 9 mile climb!

    Bibs no more

    I like the feel of bibs but, even if they're "women specific," they're still not ideal. The Signature Shorts give you the snug feel of bibs without the annoyance of taking them on and off. Really nicely shaped waistband (dips in the front, higher in the back) and great fabric feel overall. I think these fit true to size, although I don't have much room to grow in my normal size small. Great chamois. This was my first Velocio purchase, and I am very, very pleased.
