Base: Riding's Foundation

The coldest days are often the slowest miles of the year, leading to a high need for high performance baselayers. Our collection of winter weight base layers and bib shorts, tights and accessories act as staples for the winter season, regardless of the ride’s output and the temperature outside. We’ve put more time into fabric selection and design to allow for more time outside pedaling.


Merino wool is unrivaled as a cool to cold weather base layer material: naturally thermoregulating, anti-bacterial, and bearing an ability to insulate even when wet, merino is a perfect next-to-skin layer for cold weather months. Our line of merino base layers come in several weights and sleeve lengths to accommodate changing conditions and preferences. These styles incorporate different weights and constructions of merino-polyester blends designed to provide the thermal qualities of wool with the wicking, fit and durability benefits of polyester. A classic silhouette in sleeveless, short sleeve and long sleeve variations provides options for late Fall through mid-winter riding.


Not all 'roubaix' is created equal. Our fleece lined thermal bib shorts and tights is developed using premium Italian milled Thermoroubaix Power DWR from MITI s.p.a. We chose this top end fabric for its compressive quality - similar to that found on our summer weight bib shorts - as well as it's dense knit and DWR treated face, both of which enhance protection from the cold wet months of the year. These premium offerings provide amazing versatility from Fall through early Spring and will extend comfort far beyond the sunny days and short-sleeved temps.


Our entire line, including the Merino Base Layer and Thermal Bib collections, falls under our Signature Guarantee. Try any of our apparel for 30 days - ride in it every day if you'd like - and if you're not satisfied, return it for a full refund. It's our no risk commitment to trying Velocio and learning what we're all about.
