Scottish apparel specialist Endura is showing a ‘commitment to kitting out hard-core female riders’ by increasing both its women’s road cycling performance range and the women’s MTB range. Although the new pieces come in strong designs and look flattering on the female body, according to Endura, the real focus is on performance, with ‘fit, high-end fabrics and elaborate details playing together.’
New pieces in the road collection include the women’s FS260-Pro Jetstream S/S Jersey for lightweight wind protection, the FS260-Pro Bibknickers with drop seat for easy comfort breaks, and the women’s FS260-Pro Adrenaline Race Cape for race day weather protection.
On the MTB side of things, the new women’s MT500 Spray Baggy Pants is seen as a trail favourite, combining traditional trail shorts with a waterproof seat. The new, stylish women’s Singletrack Print Ts and Jerseys in red, teal, purple, or ultramarine add some additional colour to the range. These can be combined with the women’s Singletrack Lite Shorts and the women’s Singletrack Lite Gloves.
As part of its ongoing product development, Endura has a wide test pool of female and male professional riders, everyday cycling enthusiasts, and Endura employees. The input and feedback of the female testers plays a crucial role in the development of the women’s range.
Endura’s recent triathlete signings, Beth Gerdes and Rachel Joyce, and German Para track World Champion Denise Schindler have also been putting the women’s road kit through some high mileage performance testing. Meanwhile, on the trails, Scottish MTB talent Katy Winton of the Endura-Bergamont Factory Racing Team is riding in Endura.
