Endura Built For Worse


Built For Worse

Cycling Gear For All Types Of Winter

Endura is based in Scotland, a country infamous for its inclement weather. It’s not that Scotland suffers from extremes, there are no hurricanes, ultra-deep freezes or monsoons, but the Scots get a lot of weather.

Think it’s rainy in Bellingham? Then you should see Glen Etive – there are more rainy days in a year there than dry ones. Think it’s windy in Hamburg? You should try Shetland – where the average windspeed is faster than most folks are on bikes Think it’s cold in Naimakka? …actually, the Swedes have us there. It can get very cold in Naimakka… Still, can it be the same temperature there on mid-summer and mid-winter like it can in Edinburgh?

Scotland’s crappy weather definitely has its benefits for bike riders across the globe. It means that the team at Endura has 30 years of making riding gear that’s built for worse. They don’t need a fancy climate chamber at their Product Development base in Livingston, they just open the door and go for a ride.

This winter the Scottish brand has kit for all kinds of winter, not just Scottish ones. Kit that will keep you riding longer when it’s cold, wet or windy or any combinations of the three of them.

MT500 is still the go-to collection for riders wanting to shred through winter. The MT500 Waterproof One Piece can deal with it all. Suit up and ride on. Built for the worst of rainy riding days, the MT500 Waterproof Jacket and MT500 Waterproof Trousers are made for Scottish summers so you know they can cope with foul weather epics at any time of year. Exceptional breathability and waterproof ratings will let you ride for longer. Two new colours in the jacket will keep you looking sharp through the gloom.

Don’t pull over if it’s chucking down, pull on the new MT500 Burner Lite Pullovers instead. Category leading waterproof and breathability ratings and a clever balance of fabrics and carefully selected features mean this smock style jacket is all day tough and durable whilst being lightweight and packable.

MT500 Spray is here to save your riding day when it’s raining from the ground up. Long a favourite with year round riders, the MT500 Spray Trousers have been joined by the NEW MT500 Spray Gilet – a new packable core protector with waterproof panels in all the right places.

Got the chills? Not in MT500 Freezing Point – the jacket, gilet and trousers make use of PrimaLoft® GOLD insulation just where you need it.

Totally new for this season is the MT500 Waterproof Boot, meaning that Endura can get you suited AND booted up for wet weather riding. With a brand heritage firmly rooted in wet off-road riding kit it was only a matter of time before the arrival of the footwear to compliment all the other wet weather riding kit! A waterproof riding boot in both clipless and flat forms, with an ExoShell membrane to keep the worst weather out. No booties needed.

The SingleTrack range sees a drop of fresh new colours for men and women and a new trail friendly, technical streetwear style SingleTrack Softshell Jacket proving that winter riding kit doesn’t have to go straight in the kit bag after a few laps of the woods. The silky smooth yet durable softshell provides much needed insulation while the progressive styling keeps you looking good over a post-ride mulled cider.
