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.
How do your vests fit?
Our vests are patterned for the riding position, with a tighter fit across the chest and an arm opening with a more forward position. This is intentional to reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When standing, the vest will feel tight across the chest and torso. This piece should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and base layer), and shouldn’t appear baggy. We select fabrics that have some elasticity to allow for freedom of movement even with a tailored fit to accommodate some range of fit within each size.
The Velocio Signature Guarantee underscores our mission to create a better cycling experience. We believe that riding in our gear is the best proof of our commitment to quality and performance. Therefore, we stand behind everything we make. Try any of our products for 30 days to ensure it meets your needs. Wear it. Ride in it. Wash it. We believe it will provide a better riding experience. If you are not 100% satisfied with your Velocio product, you may return it within 30 days of receiving the product.
Very impressed! Easily packable but kept me warm enough even on a long descent at altitude while the sun was setting. Also love the ability to zip both ways, pockets and the high visibility color (particularly great for commuting). Sizing - 125lbs, 5’5” and the XS fits perfectly over a jersey and base layer.
The Velocio ultralight vest is great on chilly ride days. It's super light weight and fits in your jersey pocket nicely if you decide to take it off. The outside pockets are great for those days that you know you will be keeping the vest on for the entirety of the ride OR for extra snacks! ;) I am typically a medium jersey and purchased a medium vest, it is a little baggy on me. Next purchase I would adjust to a small vest.
This vest is great for layering on cold or windy days- it breaks wind from the front but has ventilation on the back. And when you start warming up, it unzips at both ends and packs down small enough to put into a jersey pocket. The colors are beautiful, and the fabric is super soft. I am 5'9" and 165lbs and the medium fits perfectly.
Love this vest. Super light and comfy and packs into a teeny tiny ball.
This is the third generation of the Ultralight Vest that I have owned. I love the bright color (Citron) and that it coordinates so perfectly with my Citron/Navy Concept Jersey. The higher tech fabric, increased shoulder coverage and laser cut perforation on the back panel provide just the right warmth and breathability. I just wish the collar came up higher on the neck and that the back pockets weren’t so deep. I am pretty flexible, but I can hardly access any contents as the top/opening of the pockets is too far up my back.
