Introducing The MVP. A totally new product that will change how you kit.
This is not a winter cycling tight. This is not a knicker. This is the MVP: so good you might just bench your other players.
The Most Versatile Pant is just that: versatile. It is an ankle-length bib pant designed to take you through long months of transitional weather. After all, the hottest weeks of summer and the coldest weeks of winter only last so long and often leave you wondering how to dress for the other 10 months out of the year. Perfect for SoCal winters, Norcal summers, and everything in between, the MVP is meant to be worn anywhere from 50-75 degrees F. We think dressing for the cooler months should be just as simple as dressing for summer: bibs or pants, jersey, and vest or jacket. Easy.
Besides innovating how you kit up for a long ride, The MVP opens up a whole new world of wearing kit as off-the-bike attire. Riding to meet friends for coffee or dinner? The MVP transitions seamlessly to "real life" and might just have people asking where you got your new leggings. We think bike-style and life-style should be interchangeable.
- Features the same chamois and bodice-fit of your favorite Endurance Bib.
- High-performance European fabric for ultimate moisture wicking.
- Mesh inserts for ultimate breathability.
- The same compression you love in your bibs creates a lean, streamlined silhouette.
- Locking zippered ankles make the MVP easy to put on and still maintain compression around the ankle.
- SPF 50 means the end to your tanline woes.
- 27" inseam creates a flattering ankle length fit on taller riders, and full length on petite riders.

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.)

....But these are the best damn cycling kits ever! I've been cycling for over 20 years - back in the day where our racing kits were men's. I bought a kit from MF on a whim, thinking we'll this is a bit expensive, but so cute I'll give it a try. Now I'm in deep - I have three bibs, three jerseys, the vest, jacket and two undershirts. They are the only kits I'll wear now. Where were these 20 years ago!?! Hands down the best investment after the bike!
I love every Machines item I have purchased, but the Most Versatile Pant is my new Most Favorite addition to my cycling wardrobe. I have been wearing their bib shorts and loving those, but on a chilly morning these pants make my ride not just possible, but enjoyable. The chamois is the real deal, they fit true to size (I purchased a M as I did in the bib shorts as well) and they look great. I wanted to purchase a second pair but they are currently out of my size. Please re-stock soon!
I love these. The waist/chest part looks great and doesn't dig in, and the sleek, compressive feel is fun. (I followed the size chart and ended up with Medium.) The most stand-out element, though, is the fact that these are full-length tights with the lighter fabric of shorts. It's hard to find high-end bib tights that don't use heavier fabric to guard against truly cold weather. In the Bay Area, where it's 45-75 most of the time, the MVP is just right for basically every ride except the hottest days — and it looks great.
The chamois is comfortable —- perhaps a hair less cushy than my Assos pair, but the other qualities more than make up for it.
These are the ONLY bibs I own. I’m a endurance athlete and long distance cyclist. 100mi on a Saturday down the PCH is baseline. I ride in these throughout the year - both winter (40 degrees) and summer (112 degrees). I’m between sizes and always take the smaller size as the fabric will relax a tiny bit to fit your body. Too big is no good - as no one wants extra fabric moving around only to chafe and bunch up. Girl parts are secure. Body is lean and secure - working fabulously with base layers, jerseys amd outerwear. Compression like qualities feel legit. During my rides bibs often times become drenched with sweat. When this happens they dry quickly while keeping my body temp regulated. Do yourself a favor - order two sizes. Try them both on. Send the larger one back and get to riding!!! You’re welcome. ⚡️⚡️⚡️
I love the Endurance Bib shorts, so I thought I would give these long tights a try! Though a little tricky to get on at first because of the compression, once in, these are the most comfortable bib tights that I own. They have been perfect for 45ºF+ rides on their own, and I look forward to layering over them this winter. I have had really good luck with all of the MFF chamois, and these tights are no different.
