Ever found yourself in a business meeting with a razor sharp tanline peeking out from your pencil skirt? Our Endurance Bib features a 7.5" inseam making tanlines easily hidden under most hemlines.
- 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 got the medium. At first I was having trouble getting it up my thighs where I started doubting if I needed a bigger size but gradually shifting the shorts up to point that once I got the bib on my shoulders, I was then able to fully adjust the shorts up in place. So yes they are tight at first to put on but having them on and moving around they stretch and conform to my body where I would not want to size up - they are true to size according to the size chart.
As a Canadian, these were a hefty price after exchange and then there’s the duty😖 BUT let me tell you these are worth it!! At first look I didn’t think they looked special to justify the price nor at first glance did it appear to have a wider chamois but it’s very clear it is a wider chamois once I put them on - finally a chamois that actually covers my sit bones!! Most bike shorts aren’t wide enough to fully cover my sit bones but these are perfect! I sat on my bike and it felt like I was sitting on the couch - I could not feel the hard bike seat at all which is something I haven’t experienced in my 16 years of cycling.
I’m not sure I can even go back to wearing my other bike shorts now 😳
Great quality but seems to run a little small. Couldn’t even get the medium on, so we’ll see with a large.
These bibs are life changing for non-skinny cyclists. I was hesitant given the price, but after a week solid of saddle sores, I took the plunge (props for the 30-day satisfaction guarantee, MFF, it made the difference).
The chamois is much larger, area-wise, than on the Specialized crops I had been riding for years. When first trying the bibs on, I was concerned the chamois might be *too* big, but my first ride convinced me otherwise. It was by far the most comfortable ride I’d had since I started cycling, no saddle sores. The “no-roll” bottom edges also work as advertised, no sausage legs even with generous thighs.
I couldn’t recommend any kit more highly than these bibs, and MFF’s inclusive, ethical branding is only a bonus. Call me converted!
I love, love this bib. I appreciate the simplicity of the design with no clasps that might ultimately break. I feel like it will last a long time and it’s super comfy! I even feel kinda sexy in it. My only criticism is that I’m in Canada and had to pay an extra 25% in taxes when it arrived which was hard since it already felt like a budget stretch.
I was so excited to get these shorts. First, I had to contend with an unexpected extra charge of $250 in taxes to pay when I received these shorts in the mail. It's the first time I've ever had a fee to pay after purchasing an item without advance notice. The shorts were true to size so that was a positive and the chamois is perfect for long hours in the saddle or short and hard trainer sessions. It's just right and it's not sloppy on the saddle or oversized at all. However, I'm not a fan of the leg band at the bottom of the shorts because it creates a sausage leg effect which feels awkward. I wish these would be raw edge leg bottoms like the shor
