Materials & Care

Fabric Content

Fabric: 79% Polyamide / 21% Elastane

Made in IT

Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. Its 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. Youll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts. 

Machine wash cool, 86F (30C) 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. Dont 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.

These shorts look good. I find them a bit hot in warmer temps. I’d love one more zippered pocket that’s credit card/car key sized or even a sleeve inside one of the two zippered pockets to help prevent small items from falling out when accessing the thigh pockets.

Amazing fit

Amazing shopping experience! Fit true to size, purchased a M, I’m 5’5” 145 lbs. Not too baggy, not too tight, just right! Love them so much I bought a pair of the Recon Stealth shorts to add to my collection. So far everything has fit perfectly, including the signature short, Breton SE wind vest and ultralight vest. I would love to add the Anorak to my Velocio collection…someday soon!!! Eventually everything I own will be Velocio!

Amazing shorts-- my current favorite!

These shorts are awesome. They are super light weight, stretchy, and comfortable. They also have a flattering fit (not too baggy, not too tight) and a great length sitting about 2" above the knee. The belt loop is a little bit of a pain to tighten but once you set it to your waist you are good to go since they put a great locking button in the short- you button but then it slides to lock in. Although the belt loop is a bit of a pain to tighten, it holds to wherever you set it and doesn't loosen over time. The shorts have a great side pocket (love the yellow zipper on the gray shorts!), and the location of them is positioned well so that when you put things in them you never feel like its interfering with your riding. All around awesome short, definitely looking to get my husband a pair of the men's version.

Very disappointing

I am a huge fan of Velocio and everything I own from them fits exceptionally well and is such high quality. I was SO excited to see form fitting, stylish trial shorts by Velocio. Unfortunately, these were a huge disappointment. I’m 5’5 135 and have thick legs. They were still so baggy and saggy, plus strange side bulges of fabric on the hips. Not the sleek, stylish short I was expecting.
