The Ultralight Vest, Velocio's lightest protective layer, is updated for 2021 with new colors and the addition of a dual-use stow pocket: hold valuables while wearing the vest on a ride or fold it inside the pocket while not in use to maximize storage space in your jersey pocket. Designed to be the most minimal and lightweight protective layer they could design, it is a go-to for early morning starts, Tuesday Night Worlds cool downs or Col du Galibier descents when you've run out of newspaper. This is a must-have emergency layer that will find its way into your pocket most of the year. At just 30 grams per meter, the Japanese milled Pertex Quantum Air nylon used in the front, sides and shoulders is 100% windproof, breathable and exceptionally light.

We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) 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. Don’t 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.
