Unlike many other brands, we’ve developed our own patterns and fit from the ground up based on our own testing and feedback. Our fit is intended to be tailored and sleek fitting, akin to what you might hear as “race fit” or “euro fit”. It’s important to keep in mind that all of our patterns are developed and shaped around the position on the bike, not standing, so when you first put a piece of Velocio apparel on, it will pull or feel tight in certain directions, such as across the front of your shoulders, or along the length of the bib straps while standing. This is all considered as we feel that a better garment for cycling needs to fit for cycling. This is also why it’s not possible to compare measurements from other brands to match your size. We’ve developed our size chart around this intended fit and positioning and recommend referring to these charts when selecting your size. We also offer our Signature Guarantee and free returns to ensure a risk free opportunity to try Velocio.
