No matter the size of the rider, our fit is intended to be consistent across our entire size range. For example, Velocio bib shorts are designed to be highly compressive, whether a size XXXXL or size XXS. Hence, it is key to understand how our clothing is intended to fit, and then determine the correct size for you.
Starting with a form-fit silhouette, we develop our own specific patterns to provide optimal muscle support and a full range of motion while riding. Compression provides benefits for endurance athletes, including muscle fatigue reduction.
Furthermore, we offer varying levels of compression and breathability depending on the intended use. To learn more about our range of jerseys & bib shorts, check out our Comparison Guides.

BIB SHORTS & TIGHTS
All of our bib shorts and tights are designed for optimal fit on the bike and will “break-in” after a few rides and washes, conforming to the shape of the rider. When trying on or wearing your bibs or tights for the first time, try them on the bike (or mimicking on-the-bike posture) to feel an ideal approximation of fit. Different parts will fit and feel more comfortable in the riding position vs. standing upright. Hence, we offer our 30-Day Signature Guarantee for a complete test. The best bibs and tights don’t feel perfect standing in front of a mirror. The design makes pedaling better.
For more information on what to expect when trying on a new pair of our bibs, please see the following FAQ: WHY DO MY BIBS FEEL SUPER TIGHT WHEN I TRY THEM ON FOR THE FIRST TIME?
Designed to be form-fit and tailored, providing light compression, muscle support, exceptional comfort, and a streamlined look, each jersey is designed for optimal fit on the bike. When trying on our jerseys for the first time, riders might notice the front hem is shorter when standing upright. However, when on-the-bike in the riding position, you'll notice the jersey optimally hits the torso without bulk or folding. Our more compressive jersey will help provide support and stability for all-day rides while still allowing you to easily reach back pockets while on the bike.
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.
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.
ARM, KNEE, & LEG WARMERS
Zipper and gripper free, our Arm, Knee, & Leg Warmers are designed to perform with compression fit Jerseys & Bibs. The compression from the Jersey arms and Bib lowers will hold the warmers in place, with the zipper and gripper-free design allowing for maximum comfort while riding. All of our warmers will have light compression for muscle support and excellent fit.
