  • 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.

    Unflattering for small chested women, but otherwise great!

    It's comfortable, breathable, and the nature break functionality works great. However, I wouldn't buy it again for three reasons - 1) I've only washed it once (no dryer) and the mesh panel already looks like it's fraying. I'm concerned it's going to get worse. 2) the front straps and panel go directly over my ******* (unlike other conventional bib shorts that go to the side), making me look absolutely FLAT. I usually don't care about these things, but that combined with my petite frame and I look like a pre-pubescent boy. Not flattering at all 3) For the cost, I expected a better chamois

    Solid choice but not what I expected

    I am pleased with the quality of these bibs, especially the shape and placement of the chamois. However, I was expecting a lighter more breathable fabric akin to the Ultralight shorts I purchased about two years ago. These feel stiff and heavier by comparison.

    Hello. You're correct in noticing a different material for the updated Ultralight shorts. We were actually able to make the Ultralight bib shorts more compressive while maintaining the same breathability and weight of the previous versions. So the material does have a different hand feel, but it is just as breathable as the previous ones! Also, after a couple washes and rides they will break-in nicely.

    Great Bib for Hot Weather

    I live in the hot and humid South. The weight of the fabric on these bibs is really nice (lighter than my Assos bibs) without sacrificing compression. I like a thicker chamois and though it says this one is narrower than the Signature bib chamois, I didn't find it to be too narrow. The mesh in the front of the bib is light and doesn't make me too hot. I am 5'2", 130 lbs, 37.5" hips and I ordered a medium after getting input from customer service. They said I could fit into a small but my gut (and butt) told me to stick with a medium, my normal size. I also purchased the W Radiator jersey in medium. Super light fabric, aero fit. ( 36.5" bust and 31" waist). If you are unsure of size email them. Customer service was super helpful and knows a lot about the stretch and fit of their fabrics.
