There are great options for better apparel today. Gone are the days of counterposing highly technical apparel with sustainable apparel. That’s a false choice. Since our launch in 2014, we’ve looked at how we can continue to push forward our product offering to reduce our impact on our planet. We all need clothing, but what we choose to buy has a profound impact on not only its longevity, but the environmental cost in creating it
The choices we make are aimed to slow down the process, to push back against fast fashion and disposable kit. Each of our designs is aimed at longevity and sustained performance. Likewise, we strive for timeless visual designs since a great kit is a great kit whether new out-of-the-bag or in five years. Then there are the material choices that comprise our clothing.
Today, we’re using sustainable fabrics and resources. Our collection of apparel using recycled or natural fiber materials now comprises 100% of our Spring/Summer jersey line. Every jersey is either made primarily from recycled polyester (ocean trash from the EU - turned into new yarn in the EU) or natural fibers.
As part of our commitment to finding a better way of creating and servicing high-quality performance cycling apparel, we are excited to offer Velocio Renewed: our latest collection of revived, repurposed and reconditioned apparel. Extending the quality and durability our brand is known for, Velocio Renewed answers the question of how to get the most from every piece. Now, a product's life doesn’t have to end with a small tear, a ripped seam or blemish.
We’ve partnered with experts in creating and executing circular product systems, The Renewal Workshop, to help recover non-restockable Velocio Apparel and to renew them into reconditioned cycling kit, ready for another ride down the road or trail.
