The Velocio Signature Bib Shorts are beautiful bib shorts that mold to your boby shape and are a delight to wear thanks to the quality lycra fabric and great construction. They might be pricey but as we always say, you get what you pay for, and luckily for us Brits the exchange rate is in our favour at the moment.
If you haven’t read our review of the Velocio Stripe Jersey then have a gander at Velocio’s environmental and ethical credentials. www. Impressive that they can attain such high standards and set the world to right at the same time.
Technical qualities include lightweight fabric that wicks and dries quickly and a top range Cytech chamois that we found to be super comfortable and, although seems to write, is refreshingly black in colour!
The leg bands on the Velocio Signature Bib Shorts are the perfect mix of soft, yet effective at staying put without emphasizing any leg fat. The gripper has an ultra-lightweight silicone finish to aid comfort and performance.
Rather than having separate shoulder straps the bibs are connected by a lightweight mesh panel at the front that adds stability and reduces pressure on the shoulder straps, this is a really great idea and requires only one strap on the rear.
The seams are really well thought out, positioned so as not to annoy or contact moving areas and are flat and smooth for comfort. The only niggle we came across was the little tag on the right leg was a bit scratchy on the inside, beside that we liked the lovely detail tag next to the reflective Velocio logo.
Not all chamois pads work well across a variety of saddles but the Velocio Signature Bib Shorts are the most effective we’ve come across, the pad was one of the most comfortable we’ve tried and the fit of the short and bib section was excellent.
Technically they performed very well too and they’re our go to short for any length ride.
Verdict: Great quality bib short that perform well and will last years
