Designed to keep up with the demands of the Athertons and Hazzard racing, the MT500 range combines top-spec waterproofing with unmatched, class leading 40k breathability. Comfortable, technical and bombproof - the MT500 range is the go-to for any mountain biker looking to turn the off-season into their on-season.

It's a must. Unless you know it's absolute hot dusty beach summer, it goes in the riding bag for sure - Dan Atherton

The backbone of the MT500 range has always been its unbeatable tech specifications. Packing the same high-end waterproofing and breathability ratings as its predecessors, the 2020 range sees an all new super-durable ExoShell40DR fabric in use. Paired with fully seam-sealed construction, this tough fabric is perfect for anything from all-day mountain epics or a soggy lap of your local trail centre.

ExoShell40DR

This all new fabric packs class leading features within its construction. A bombproof outer and comfortable, soft-touch inner layer surrounds a fluorine-free waterproof membrane. This keeps you warm and dry without feeling like a giant crisp packet, and as with all Endura waterproof kit, this fabric is treated with an environmentally safe and PFC free DWR coating.

ExoShell fabrics are produced in a way that eliminates harmful chemicals and substances from the manufacturing process, so you can use Endura products safe in the knowledge that they are doing all they can to tackle the current climate emergency.

MT500 Jacket II

For 2020, Endura has revamped key products in the MT500 line, including the renown MT500 jacket. We have featured the MT500 jacket heavily over the years, with #TeamRutland ambassador Chris Teagles living in his for the best part of the last year. Interested in what he had to say about it? You can see his review here.

Waterproof enough for Endura's local Scottish trails, but stylish enough for the pub-garden, the MT500 waterproof jacket is the ultimate UK cycling jacket. But, waterproofing is nothing without breathability, which is where this jacket plays its trump card. With an astonishing rating of 40k, this is the pinnacle of MTB breathability, keeping you dry from the inside and out.
