Singletrack II

The Singletrack shorts are very comfortable with 4-way stretch fabric for most of the construction. The seat panel is made from durable non-stretch material, so you can put in plenty of miles before the wear out. There’s a moisture wicking waistband with silicone grippers to keep them in place and Velcro adjusters, so you can adjust the fit.

These shorts are ‘knee pad compatible’ which means that they are long enough to reach the top of your pads through the whole range of motion. Zipped vents on the leg help with temperature regulation on warmer rides while the water repellent coating helps ward off trail spray.

Singletrack Lite

Made from lightweight 4-way stretch fabric with laser cut vent holes these are great shorts for warm summer riding. Like the regular singletracks they have a moisture wicking waistband for comfort and silicone detailing to help keep the shorts in place while you ride. They’re available in two leg lengths. The Regular fit is kneepad compatible like the regular Singletrack IIs, the short fit has 5cm less leg length making them better for wearing without pads.

MT500 Burner

The MT500 Burner has a similar feel to the Singletrack IIs but have a more robust construction. They don’t sacrifice much in the way of comfort but are much more durable with reinforcing panels in key areas. The ratchet wait closure is a nice touch and combined with the Velcro adjusters allow you to tailor the fit perfectly. As you’d expect the fabric is treated with a waterproof coating and the cut is kneepad friendly.

MT500 Spray

These are perhaps the perfect shorts for riding wet trails when the weather is too warm for waterproof trousers. The rear panel is fully waterproof with taped seems, so your bum won’t get wet from puddle splashes and spray thrown up from the rear wheel. The front panels are made from durable 4-way stretch fabric, so these shorts feel a lot more comfortable than full waterproofs. Of course, these shorts also feature Endura’s PFC free water repellent coating.

The Foyle shorts are made from lightweight 4-way stretch fabrics with Endura’s PFC free water repellent coating. Laser cut vent holes, zipped thigh openings and mesh lined pockets help to keep you cool as you ride. There is also a waterproof GV500 short for wet weather adventure.

Under Shorts

Padded under shorts worn underneath a pair of baggies can improve your comfort in the saddle. A chamois pad similar to those found in lycra road cycling shorts is sewn into a lightweight close-fitting liner. The quality of the pad makes a big difference to comfort. With Endura’s pads the higher the number the better quality the pad. All Endura MTB shorts are compatible with their Clickfast liner attachment system but these can be worn separately too. Most Hummvee shorts are supplied with removable Clickfast liner shorts
