MapSport Cartographic and Stay in Control bring you the ultimate bush sport and racer bib. Printed full colour on economical, MapSport adventure maps& sports logowater and tear resistant Pretex, these bibs not only assist the organisers and athletes, they also showcase your event sponsors.

While the ultimate racer bib material is Tyvek due to its indestructability, its cost and inability to print digitally (thus preventing sponsor logos StayInControl logoetc) has led to Pretex being the top class alternative. Pretex is both tear and water resistant and its flexibility provides the wearer with a high level of comfort.

Pretex is especially valuable for mtbo maps that the rider needs to fold. Teslin and most other synthetics are difficult to fold being highly tensile. This is time wasting and frustrating for the competitive and even non-competitive rider. Make sure you select Pretex for your mtbo maps.

Racer bibs are a joint service of MapSport Cartographic and Stay in Control. Ken’s Printshop Mail software enables full colour sponsor logos, variable race numbers (including formats such as 1-349 and ‘broken’ sequences) and any other variable data that you can provide and that can fit (such as each racer’s start times for a multi-day event).

The most common sizes are A5 for chest bibs and A6 for bike numbers. However sizes from A7 to A3 are available.
