Velocio may not be an everyday name in the mountain bike community but they have been shaking up the road and gravel cycling clothing scene since 2014. Their design team is dedicated to finding novel solutions through endless hours of testing and CAD design plus they source all their own recycled fabrics when possible. While their design and sales team resides in the US, their entire production line is in the Peimonte region of Italy, known for their garment production and merino suits. Along with all that, the Velocio team is dedicated to preserving public lands and advocating for cycling throughout the world.
This year, they broke into trail specific clothing and applied all they had learned to thinking outside the box. We received the Delta long sleeve jersey, trail short, and trail glove and put them into the lineup for testing. Velocio says their new line is targeted at “game trail single track and perfectly spaced berms” so we headed out to some of our favorite back country locations for some testing.
