One less reason to avoid the rain, thanks to Endura. Here’s the info…
UK Trails tend to be wet and muddy for a large proportion of the year – fact. Once you’ve got a wet bum, riding is considerably less fun – fact. While most mountain bikers don’t care too much about wet and muddy calves, a wet saddle region is a different matter altogether, quickly creating discomfort in a very sensitive area! There is a simple answer; waterproof shorts. That’s why Scottish all-weather experts Endura have added the new MT500 Waterproof Shorts to their popular MT500 range.
Waterproof shorts need to be, err, waterproof, but it’s not quite as simple as that. First-class waterproof shorts need to be breathable, comfortable, and offer a great fit while riding. It will come as no surprise that Endura’s new MT500 Waterproof Shorts combine the all of these properties along with a host of additional practical features, all at a great price (£69.99).
The fully seam sealed, compact fabric of the MT500 Waterproof Shorts is completely waterproof to a water column of 10,000mm, and also features a high breathability of 10,000 g/m2/24h. Stretch waterproof panels at the lower back and at the crotch guarantee full freedom of movement, while the highly durable Cordura® fabric seat panel ensures a long lifespan of the shorts. The shorts have a hem adjustment system at the legs for a perfect fit, enabling you to close them tight to prevent water and mud from spraying up your legs.
The waist is highly adjustable thanks to the elastic waistband and internal draw cord. At the back there’s a spacious zipped mesh pocket which can be used for valuables while riding or to stash the shorts. Padded liner shorts or the MT500 Protective Undershorts can be clicked in and out easily with the clever Endura Clickfast™ system.
Last but not least, with their yellow MT500 contrast details and reflective logos, these shorts look the part too.
Now stop using wet trails as an excuse to slouch on the couch – get out and ride!
