Updated for 2019 with our latest generation Signature chamois, this Fall-season favorite features our Flyfree technology and fleece-lined supportive and compressive Thermoroubaix Power fabric. The Thermal Bib Short has a feel similar to our lauded Signature Fly Bib Short, with the added protection a fleece lined and DWR treated fabric throughout. A wind block panel at the front crotch for added protection from the cold makes these shorts truly versatile down into the colder temps when paired with our Winter Leg Warmers. We knew we needed to maintain the same pee-break friendly performance of our other bib shorts and tights, so we took everything we've learned from testing and feedback of our FLY design and have refined it through clever patterning and finishing to allow for the same great function in a more streamlined and lighter bib short. We call it FlyFree: Same great function, no zipper required.

  • 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.

Women's sizing guide

Taking your measurements

All styles are intended to be form-fitting, across the entire size range. Find a flexible tape measure and take your own body 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.

    Good for all but the hottest conditions

    I live in the Pacific Northwest where we ride in the rain 9 months out of the year. These bib shorts will serve you well in the majority of conditions (unless you run hot). I also own the signature bib short and find the fit to be identical. I am 5'6" and 120 lbs and ordered the XS. No issues with the chamois and absolutely love the Flyfree technology.

    Excellent spring bibs

    My first Velocio bibs. I love the compression and the fleece lining is great for temps in the 50’s or lower with leg warmers. The fly free design works perfectly.

    Very tight

    In my experience, these bibs are much tighter than other bibs of the same size. All of my bibs are size Small but I could barely get into a Small in these (I also have the Velocio Ultralight bibs in Small which fit great). Exchanged for a Medium (very easy exchange process so I'm happy about that) but they are still tighter than expected. These do also seem shorter/lower in the back as another reviewer mentioned, but it doesn't bother me much.

    • Size purchased Small, then Medium
    • Product fit Runs small

    Disappointed ...and I love this brand

    These shorts are substantial shorter/lower in the back end where there used to be a zipper. I’ve owned many different pairs of Velocio bibs (no zipper and zipper back end versions) since 2015 so to notice the difference on the lack of fabric in the back was disappointing. My first ride in these short had my base layer falling out causing a draft and I spent four hours wondering if my buttcrack was exposed. Also, was in full velocio base, ls sleeve jersey, puffy vest w these shorts that day so there were no brand differences.

    Feel good overall

    I tend to be the one that is always chilly regardless of the temp. I am new to cycling completely and have found it very hard to find anything that fits me correctly. I am 5'2, 125 pounds with a very short torso and wide hips. I like the way they fit overall, but I found that the chamois folds into an uncomfortable taco when I am trying to climb a hill. I had to stand and adjust on more than one occasion. In spite of this I like the fit. And at this point I have ordered and returned almost everything out there already. Like with almost everything I buy/ own, these are the bibs I hate the least.
