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. 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.
We wanted to innovate 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.

- 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.
- Fabric is UPF 50+
- 27" inseam creates a flattering ankle length fit on taller riders, and full length on petite riders.

To get the longest life out of your garment, we recomend washing in cold water with a mild detergent and hanging it to dry. If you need to toss it in the dryer in a pinch, that's okay! Just keep this to a minimum. Overtime, heat can degrade the yar, resulting in lost compression and durability.

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 (5'3" or under), we recommend SIZING DOWN for a compressive fit. A snug fit is crucial to performance.

(Please note, the fit guide requires chest, waist and hip measurements.)
These are 5-star bibs but the bib straps are way too short. I am only 5'4" and I can feel them digging into my shoulders just trying them on. I know I won't be able to deal with that while riding. I probably need a full inch added in length to the bib straps for these to be comfortable. I'm honestly not sure how women with longer torsos are dealing with these. That being said, I will probably keep these because they are superior to any others I have found and I will have to do something to modify the straps. The length of the tights is perfect, stopping about an inch above the ankle. Great fit everywhere else. I am 140 lbs and 5'4" and got the Medium.
Bought these based on the recommendation of a friend and previous reviews. They did not disappoint! wore them for a long challenging ride in cool conditions and they were so comfortable I didn't think about them! No adjustment required, nice and firm around the midriff and the best chamois (and I'm VERY fussy). I'm 5'6" and around 65kg and I got a medium. Probably could have got a small, but so comfy and not at all baggy anywhere. Overall very happy indeed :-).
I’m 5’8,160lbs, and pear-shaped. I ordered a size medium (I’m normally a size 8 jean) and the fit is very snug. They’re very comfortable when cycling and I plan to buy another pair!
I'd never spent so much on garment used for a hobby before, so I was a little hesitant when I bought this bib. Surely it wasn't THAT great, right?
Oh honey, pull up a chair.
I was impressed when I put it on because it felt so nice. I mean the fabric just felt luscious against the palms of my hands when I ran them over my legs and the cut was so flattering! Still, the acid test would be a 25 mile ride we were taking this morning. How would my backside feel? The chamois felt thinner than the pad in my pair I'd purchased cheap from an-online-store-named-after-a-rainforest.
I really was amazed. The bibs felt great even after the twentieth mile. No chafing or rubbing, and the chamois gave me the padding I needed in the tender spots. Though the fabric was thick, I didn't feel overly-warm even on this summer day. But what *really* astounded me was that they stood up to a tumble I took into a ditch. They protected my skin from the thorny bushes and muddy ground and they weren't even damaged afterward.
I have worn the Machines For Freedom bib exclusively for years and have had my eyes set on The Most Versatile Pant for a long time. The unpredictable nature of Rocky Mountain weather prompted me to finally make the purchase. I've only worn them once (and was super glad I had them) and as expected I couldn't be more pleased with them. They have the amazingly perfect MFF compression fit and the quality is, as always, superb. The MFF The Most Versatile Pant is a must for every cyclist who faces inclement weather.
