When the weather is all over the place, you need kit that can deal with a range of conditions. 

The new Velobici Cobalto collection is designed to regulate your body temperature to keep you comfortable regardless of the weather. And because it’s entirely England Made at our own factory in Hinckley, we know it works just as well on the Saturday club run as it does on an alpine mountainside. 

Cobalto Thermal Jersey

We’ve used a soft and breathable midweight VB/Pro TI1 fabric that provides thermal regulation and four-way stretch for a perfect fit and complete comfort. The fabric is made from two knitted layers that trap air to enhance the body’s natural thermoregulation. Meanwhile, a DWR treatment repels water and the close weave keeps cold air out.

The colourway of the Cobalto jersey is inspired by Campagnolo’s legendary and highly sought-after brakes of the same name, which were introduced in the 1980s. They were known for their gloriously flamboyant cobalt blue gem stone covering the caliper bolt. The brakes proved a dependable alternative to the company’s attractive but flawed Delta brakes.

Cobalto Bib Shorts

The Cobalto Thermal bib shorts are produced in a grey fabric for a perfect contrast with the Cobalto blue, and feature the Velobici pad system containing clay minerals to promote freshness throughout your ride.

The shorts are made from  our proprietary VB/Pro-TI1 performance fabric, comprising two knitted layers that trap air to work with the body’s natural thermoregulation, and a four-way stretch for the ultimate fit. 

Our bio-ceramic VB Pad utilises Foam Carving Technology to smooth out variations between densities. We’ve used Wave Body Contour Technology to help promote blood flow for comfort however long you’re in the saddle.

Pads are covered with bio-ceramic anti bacterial fabric that incorporates clay minerals, promoting oxygenation, freshness and thermoregulation while increasing blood flow and reducing fatigue. The Cobalto Thermal Bib Shorts are manufactured with flat-lock seams throughout, and feature a low-cut front for added convenience and super-soft seamless silicone grippers to keep everything in place.

Cobalto Base Layer

The essential layer for winter riding, the Cobalto Thermal Base Layer is created to keep you warm and dry throughout your ride.

We’ve used a technical fabric with a soft loop on the inside which traps air to create an insulating layer. The fabric itself is high wicking, so any moisture is transported away from the body. The luxurious feel and high stretch of the fabric allow the base layer to sit next to the skin without any uncomfortable gathering. 

The Cobalto Thermal Base Layer is manufactured with a raglan sleeve and flatlock seams to ensure minimal irritation when spending hours on the road. The rear drop-back hem ensures the back is well covered when in the riding position.

We’ve embroidered a small VB logo to the centre chest and printed the care instructions to ensure there are no unnecessary labels or stitching. The meryl/lycra blend fabric is proven to be incredibly durable after multiple washes and to remain beautifully soft to the touch. It also provides exceptional moisture wicking, helping to regulate body temperature.

Available in long and short-sleeved versions.
