Women's Size Guide
Experience warmth without bulk. ThermoRoubaix Power fabric is compressive and supportive, with the added protection of a fleece lining and DWR treatment. A go-to for cyclocross warm ups, long winter base miles, or those that can’t find warmth until well after the spring equinox.
FlyFree design handles quick bathroom breaks without removing layers.

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.
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.

My favourite winter tights. They are warm without feeling too heavy. The fabric has a good amount of stretch so they fit well without being too restrictive. Of course not having to remove outer layers to go to the bathroom is the best. To make them perfect I’d love thigh pockets.
My go-to thermal bib tights. I’m between large and medium and feel discomfort on my shoulders from the tight straps on my medium bibs after longer spins. Still nothing else comes near. I’m 5ft 9 and the leg length is perfect.
Lovely quality, very comfortable. Need a cold day now to use them!
No badly placed seam, no itch, no weird baggy knees, no cold patches, no soreness. Super comfortable, great feeling of the soft, supportive and cozy fabric. The FlyFree design puts any other brand to shame with its simplicity. The downside, other than the high price point, is that I'm now completely spoiled and don't ever want to set leg in another constricting and unflattering set of leg warmers. I have only used the bib tights for a few rides so far and they have performed super well in both dry and wet conditions and I've felt great in 6C rain (or as great as you can really at that point) and did not overheat in 13C rides either - which would usually be an issue for me. Now I just hope they will stand the test of time and grit through the rest of the winter.
I was looking for bib tights for winter endurance rides and had done some research. I bought two sizes as I was just on the top of the weight height recommendation for the smaller size but I am reasonably toned. The smaller size fit beautifully. Good tight compression but without restricting movement or feeling uncomfortable. The drop back function for toilet breaks is perfect and doesn't require any messing with buckles etc. It also has no impact on the fit at the back so with a really neat pad there is no catching on the front of the seat on remounting which I find in other tights. The pad fells thinner than other tights I own, but is super super comfortable even on longer rides. I couldn't be happier.
