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 sadly had to send these back. I'm a true XS based on Velocio's measurements (I have both mtb bib liners and Signature bibs), but these had a weird fit for me. The waist had about four cm of extra space (solved by the belt), but the hips had a bunch of extra material on the sides -- even after cinching the belt it looked bad. I realise that I have narrower and less-curvy hips/waist than most women, so that's the problem. If the XXS comes back in stock, I'll try that next. Materials felt great, and I liked the two side zip pockets. Measurements for reference: height - 165cm/5'5", weight - 52kg/115lbs, waist - 64.8cm/25.5", hips (absolute widest part PLUS butt) - 87.6cm/34.5", max quad circumference - 50.3cm/19.9".
Comfortable, durable, great fit !
Huge fan of these baggies - coming from a place where I've only ever had huge baggy shorts that are uncomfortable and bulky, these are lightweight, have great pockets, and a slim fit. Definitely add these to your trail wardrobe!!
Love the fabric, love the color, love the storage but i really want a pair of MTB/gravel shorts that aren't so long. i ended up rolling these during my ride to match the length of my liner. Still liked them enough to keep them.
Love the lightweight slightly stretchy fabric and cut of these shorts. i am on high end of waist and low end of hip measurements in size chart fit reflects that (with a liner). The waist has less stretch than hips, so I just make it into size S (and don't use the pull chord to cinch waist). BUT, I tipped over grinding up a hill, fell on my hip, and had an extra degree of bruising and pain because of basically landing on the zipper pull, which is not a small bit of metal located right at my hip bone. OUCH! that is my only complaint. I love my coral red color and hope Velocio will continue offering fun, bright colors for mountain biking rather than only "camo-colors".
