Notes about fit
- For cycling bibs and shorts, the HIP MEASUREMENT is the most crucial factor.
- For cycling jerseys, the BUST MEASUREMENT is most important for sizing.
- Measure around the WIDEST POINT of the hips/bum, and the WIDEST POINT of the bust (not the ribcage).
- 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.
Customer ReviewsWrite a review
I have debated purchasing the MVP and summerweight long sleeve for a number of months. It is a big ticket clothing purchase (at least for me), however, I finally bit the bullet and it was definitely the right decision!
The MVP is the perfect solution for the windy Bay Area, Golden Gate Bridge/Marin Headlands rides and most importantly very flattering and comfortable.
I am 6'2 and 108-110 pounds (depending on how delicious dinner was the night before) and originally purchased a small based on the size guide. There was excess material around my knees and ankles causing bunching (I suspect this is mostly due to my short stature). I contacted customer service, who were responsive and very helpful. They recommended sizing down given I am petite. When the MVP arrived I was 100% certain it was not going to get over my hips. I was quite nervous I would bust a seam, and it did require some wriggling but I got the pants on and wow was it worth it! Feels great, holds everything in, is slimming and flattering (even though Im a great weight). Have been on two 20 mile rides, comfortable chamois and I didn't get too hot or cold (was 53-57 degrees).
I wanted stylish sun protection but was highly skeptical the summerweight long sleeve material/cut would be breathable on a warm day. I was surprised at how comfortable climbing 2,000ft over 20 miles on an 83 degree day was, I suspect it could have handled an even warmer day. The jersey was surprisingly warm enough for a 60 degree day (with the Mchines short sleeve base layer, plus a vest for the descent). The fabric is high quality and silky soft, it is a real joy to wear.
Great jersey, love the lightweight fabric, they Palmera print is so fun and fresh!!
The Palmera is my second Machines long sleeve jersey. The fabric is great, very comfortable and smooth. But the best things is that the jerseys provide great sun protection, while still being nice and cool! The full length tight is awesome also. Thanks Machines.
The jersey is SO soft, has a long torso (always a problem for me) and enough space in the shoulders (another issue spot). I'm 5'10" 165# with swimmer's shoulders. I have been out for a few rides with the jersey this summer and it is doesn't overheat and I'm so happy that there are actual pockets on this jersey. Five star jersey.
The MVP bibs were a bummer. I had my heart set on these working out - the idea of a summer weight tight was the thing of dreams for this ginger. BUT! The chamois itself wasn't the gray/black colorway I was hoping for - not a deal breaker, but just FYI they are lime green/gray. I got a M and L to try, and both were see through in the bum area. You could clearly see my tattoos through the fabric - so really see through. Ugh!
