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 jackets fit?
Our jackets are patterned in the riding position, with a tight fit across the chest and arms with a more forward position. This is intentional to reduce flapping and extra fabric across the chest while riding. When standing, the jacket will feel tight across the chest, shoulders and torso. The arm length might appear long as well. However, the intended fit is tailored for on-the-bike positioning where the shoulders and torso no longer feel tight and the extra arm length hits the wrists in the appropriate spot. Constructed without extra fabric to flap around - it should fit tight over your jersey (with enough room for a long sleeve and base layer), but 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.
Our jerseys and bib shorts are intended to be form fit, providing compressive support, maximizing the performance of the fabrics, and reducing fatigue and chafing. Please use the charts below to help determine your optimum size. If you find that you are on the upper or lower end of height and weight for a given size, the garment will have more or less compression respectively. In areas of overlap, multiple sizes will work — choose between the smaller or larger option for more or less compression.

I was looking for a winter jacket and spotted this in the sale. I'm 159 cm, 50Kgs but quite curvy, and going by the cm on the size guide rather than the height/weight chart, opted for the Small, a good choice. I took this out today when the weather forecast said overcast, 4 degrees C to 7 degrees C. The shoulders, arms and sleeves fit my long arms and wide shoulders very nicely. From the waist down the fit is tighter, I'd have liked a tad more room for wearing more layers. The rear pockets are positioned a little high although good and deep. Maybe after a few more outings stuffed with the usual ride paraphernalia they will sit a little lower. The jacket has some lovely features. The front pocket - oh! how I have longed for somewhere easily accessed to put the tissue for my ever-running nose and lipsalve. The material seems a little thin but with one light long sleeved merino layer and a lightweight vest I was certainly warm enough. It's very light to wear and not stiff at all, with an unexpected amount of stretch. I think this will be a piece that will work hard for me all through the winter.
Excellent for layering. I have worn this on the road in below 0 Celsius temperature. I like that it’s lightweight but warm so you don’t feel restricted in your riding clothes!
I have the 2019 version of this jacket (in olive green) but I reckon the 2020 version is essentially the same. I am very impressed with this jacket. I suffer badly from the cold, no matter how many layers I wear. I find that the front of the arms and the lower back are usually not protected well enough in other lady winter jackets, and I get unpleasant cold spots. The Velocio softshell is unique in that it looks "simple" (there are not 12 different zones or anything like that) and yet it is the one jacket that keeps me equally warm everywhere (no cold spots) without making me sweaty. The material is very firm, I was worried about it being too rigid at first, but it ends up feeling very comfortable and I have come to appreciate the firmness of this jacket on longer winter rides. I pair the jacket with a longsleeve baselayer, and on cold days with the alpha long sleeve. This allows me to ride in temperatures down to around 5-8°C. If it gets colder than that I actually add a non-cycling jacket, which is a puffy Primaloft jacket that is breathable, and that seems to do the job. I have tried the Recon vest, but it didn't work for me. Again, I feel the cold terribly, and anything below 5°C is a real struggle for me. Most important for me is a jacket that doesn't make me sweaty, and the Velocio softshell is a miracle in that regard. I don't ride in heavy rain, if I can avoid it, but the little drizzles I have experienced were no problem for it. Until now, my favourite jacket was a Gabba longsleeve jacket, but I found it has a smaller temperature range and I do end up sweating in it more than in the Velocio softshell.
I like this jacket. It is amazingly warm for what feels lightweight, and mostly I wear one merino base layer under it. Now it is around 0C I have added another and am toasty.
