We know there's no such thing as one size fits all.
We're making it easier to find your perfect fit with the Endurance Bib - Tall. We took our Endurance Bib and added a 1.5" longer inseam designed for women with longer legs or who prefer a short that hits below mid-thigh. Same amazing compression, same figure-flattering bodice, longer leg.
As always, these bibs are designed with the long-distance cyclist in mind and are sure to be a staple in your cycling wardrobe.
- Highest quality Italian chamois sized for ALL sit bone widths, a wider center cushion for better support when riding in a more aggressive position, and carbon-fiber micro-fiber fabric to prevent bacterial build-up. Ultra high-density foam padding makes this suitable for your longest days.
- High-performance European fabric for ultimate moisture wicking.
- Leg band that provides staying power WITHOUT squeezing for a smooth body silhouette.
- Figure-flattering cut.
- Clean, classic design so you can wear with any team or club jersey.

Notes about fit
- For cycling bibs and shorts, the HIP MEASUREMENT is the most crucial factor.
- Measure around the WIDEST POINT of the hips/bum.
- If you are between sizes or petite, we recommend SIZING DOWN for a compressive fit.
- A snug fit is crucial to performance.
- Check out our FIT GUIDE for more detailed instructions, or pop your measurements into the fit calculator above for a personalized recommendation! (Please note, the fit guide requires chest, waist and hip measurements.)
- Ultra high density ischiatic inserts will stay comfortable for up to 6 hours in the saddle. Positioning works for all sit bones widths.
- Thermo-molded design makes this chamois look, and feel, less bulky.
- High density ‘pelvic track’ insert shaped for a woman’s anatomy.
- Extremely soft and breathable fabric. Polymide-carbon threading makes the fabric ultra fast drying, bacteriostatic, and reduces heat gain during long hours in the saddle.

I tested and reviewed these bibs for roadbikerider.com Just loved them. Great bibs.
Century Tested. Incredible Comfort.
Recently I reviewed Machines for Freedom’s (MFF) new Essential shorts and really liked the fit, comfort and quality. The one thing I would have preferred was a longer inseam. When I found out they offered their Endurance bibs in a tall version, I decided to test MFF’s tried and true flagship product. The Endurance bibs are available in regular and tall versions, with the tall having a 1.5” longer inseam.
My first ride in these bibs was 46 miles. Normally I wouldn’t head out in a new pair of bibs for such a long ride. But after slipping them on, I was amazed at how comfortable they were. Off I went and never thought twice about what I was wearing. Everything stayed in place, no shifting of the chamois, no adjusting or tugging on the leg band, just got on my bike and rode.
Then this past weekend I had a century ride. Same thing…great comfort not only from the chamois and moisture wicking compression fabric, but also how great it looked on me. The shorts part is made of panels that not only make them fit perfectly but also give you a slimming look. The high sides and back keep you covered while the mesh bib straps and panels enhance air flow so you stay cool.
The chamois is the same for both the Essential shorts and Endurance bibs. It is next to skin soft and uses a thermo-molded design to eliminate any extra bulk. It fits all sit bone widths and a high density ‘pelvic track’ insert shaped for a women’s anatomy. According to the company’s web site, polymide-carbon threading is used to make the fabric ultra-fast drying, bacteriostatic, and heat reducing.
The option for a tall version of the Endurance bib provided me with a 1.5” longer inseam so it hit me just below mid-thigh. A wide leg band with silicon grippers kept everything in place and I never found myself tugging at the hem to pull it down.
You can tell the Endurance bibs by Machines for Freedom are designed by women for women. The fit, comfort and performance are spot on. Even after a 100-mile ride I felt great. These may be pricey but they are worth every penny. If they’d add reflective elements to the leg, they’d be a perfect 5 out of 5 stars.
Hi Machines! For the last two years I've been looking the website of MFF weekly and adoring the kits, measuring myself and calculating the costs. So in the middle of the pandemic, working from home and with a full and strict lockdown in Santiago, Chile, I decided to embrace the adquisition of a MFF cycling kit. It took forever to arrive, probably because the pandemic and the complications o f the pandemic. When it arrived, I wasn't at home and my husband told me and I rushed to house, I opened it and I already knew it was going to be perfect.
It's so smooth, so silky, a perfect fit and I got to wear it almost three weeks after it arrived, because of the lockdown and it surley confirmed everything I thought it would be. Thank you so much for making clothes specially for women, by women, it shows in the product and in the design that you consider the particular needs of us. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
My go to for long adventures. They are so comfortable. Being 2 years new to this cycling game, I was skeptical. I now own 2 pairs of the bibs and I’m looking at the cycling pants for the cold weather. Do your measurements, plug them in and follow the size guide. Very happy with my purchase.
I’m relatively new to cycling & cycling gear. I was initially skeptical because of the price point but after trying other cycling brands these are my favorite. For reference I’m 5’10/185 and was between L/XL- I decided to go up on size based on reviews for the bib straps.
Prior to this purchase, I assumed that cycling gear was not intended to be flattering based on purchases from other companies. MFF changed my mind. This bib is slimming, hugs/shapes in all of the right places, and I never have to adjust it while riding. Would definitely purchase again.
Very comfortable even after a few hours in the saddle. Love that they come in my size. Kudos to MFF!
