Endura Introduces Updated MT500 Collection

Sep 20, 2018
by Endura Sport  


Our new MT500 Waterproof Jacket is a knockout specialist, delivering ultimate weather protection for epic mountain bike adventures. The new MT500 Thermo Long Sleeve Jersey is the versatile boxer-puncher. Windproof, insulated and breathable, it’s always in condition to carry the fight. Moving up in weight for 2018, the reworked MT500 Waterproof Short now boasts the same three-layer, waterproof ExoShell60™ fabric as the MT500 Waterproof Jacket. The MT500 collection has conquered some of the biggest mountains in the world, and MT500’s champions are the best in the game, including the Athertons, Danny MacAskill, King of Kilimanjaro and The Cuillin Ridge, and ‘Himalaya’ Harald Phillip. MT500 rules the trail, come wind, rain or hail.

MT500 Waterproof Jacket

This is the omnipotent kit essential with everything a mountain biker could ask for in a waterproof jacket. Like its predecessor, the new MT500 Waterproof Jacket is packed with features and combines outstanding weather protection with award-winning monster breathability. Made from exceptionally breathable ExoShell60™ 3-layer waterproof fabric in a fully seam-sealed construction, ventilation is further assisted by two large waterproof front pockets doubling as vents and large underarm 2 way zipped vents extending onto the back, compatible with backpacks. The jacket boasts durable shoulders with silicone grip, a water-repellent VISLON® zip with storm flap, and reflective trims on hood, cuff and rear tail. The fit is spot on, with ergonomically positioned stretch panels guaranteeing full range of movement. Cuffs and hem are individually adjustable.

The new version comes in an updated, clean styling in new colours and packing even more features including a liftpass sleeve pocket, a hidden internal pocket and an improved collar and hood design. The 3D-adjustable, grown-on hood rolls up neatly when not in use to form a collar, held in place by a simple fastening strap. The hood is designed to fit over the helmet, but can also be worn underneath thanks to its adjustment system. Available in sizes XS-XXL in mango/grey, azure blue, and black.

MT500 Thermo L/S Jersey

Don’t let the new MT500 Thermo L/S Jersey fool you by its minimalistic design: this MTB wardrobe staple is a super versatile, highly durable, insulating mid-layer which can be worn as an outer layer as well. It combines windproof front panels, durable stretch windproof sleeves, and windproof sections on the shoulders and upper back with a lush, insulated, brushed back main body fabric. The side zipped pocket system and large front zipped pockets offer plenty of storage with a handy glasses wipe concealed inside. The silicone shoulder prints protect the jersey when wearing a backpack and prevent that annoying slipping-around that pack straps can be prone to on smooth fabrics. The gripper hem elastic at the rear stops the jersey from riding up. Coming from such a visually pleasing family it goes without saying that the new MT500 Thermo Long Sleeve Jersey is a great looking piece, offering strong styling to complement the substance.

MT500 Waterproof Short and Trouser

We have turned up the dial on sturdiness and features to create the latest iteration of the MT500 Waterproof Shorts. This is now essentially an all-day riding waterproof version of a proper baggy short rather than a pared-back waterproof shell. The extensive features list includes a secure button closure waistband with zip fly and belt loops, zipped hand pockets, stretch waterproof panels for an articulated fit, and a durable seat panel. The MT500 Waterproof Short is made from the same ExoShell60™ 3-layer waterproof fabric as the MT500 Waterproof Jacket, and is fully seam-sealed.

And when you finally can’t get away with wearing shorts anymore, the MT500 Waterproof Trousers will help you to conquer winter. These are full-on waterproof all-day riding trousers. More panelling and pre-shaping make for a great fit, and thanks to the long 2-way-zip on the sides you can vent them from the top or the bottom and they are easy to pull on and off without taking shoes off.

Fight adverse weather conditions and round your head-to-toe MT500 outfit off with the MT500 Waterproof Glove, MT500 Plus Overshoes and MT500 Helmet. Our confidence is so strong in the MT500 Collection that all products are supported by Endura’s 90 Day Satisfaction Guarantee.

 Looks like my previous comment about the taped seems being shit on my old MT500 has been removed ????Seriously though £200 on a jacket that lasted me 3 rides then the seams began to peel off which happened twice on two different jackets is shocking, doubt i would by anything from endura again.

 My MT500 jacket is still gonig strong after three years of all year riding and quite some crashes. I never had any quality issues with endura items at all! You must have benen very unlucky.

 last time i checked commenting in online forums doesn't help with the issue, contacting the manufacturer does. did you and what was their response?

 I had a terrible customer experiance, original jacket sent off only to return exactly the same condition, sent back again to have it replaced with brand new which also failed on the seems, sent it back saying i did not want the jacket anylonger, i couldnt get money back so i had to chooce other items as a replacement. My comments i feel are justified as what was once a brand i relied upon let me down in many ways@Sethimus:

 I had the same on the trousers. All the taped seams unbonded.

 @teamdoa: that is ok, just include all the relevant infos, he now has added the bits about endura's response, much clearer now.

 Yup, I had exactly the same problem as you, tape all around the shoulders and pockets started coming off after 2 months. I re-taped it myself and it's been fine since, but I shouldn't be re-taping such an expensive jacket so soon after buying it. The outer coating didn't last either, a shame since all the cheaper Endura stuff I've had (Humvee shorts, Lazer waterproof, Strike Glove and more) has been fantastic, but the expensive coat turned out to be shoddy. Go figure.

 @Raptor-30: I'm in the same boat with mine. Three years of riding and skiing in it and plenty of crashes. I got a wee rip in the arm from branch in a crash but a little gorilla tape fixed it right back up. Probably one of my best bits of kit I own honestly.

 Why on earth would you put out a promo shot of your new product when the item shown obviously doesn't fit the model? I've got nothing against slim line/fitted gear but from the suggested fit these don't allow knee pad coverage and look uncomfortable. Just give the dude a size up.
  • + 1
 When I bought some Endura pants, the sizing was very odd. It's possible that the next size up just looks terrible on the model. I'm very happy with my MT500 spray trousers -- a softshell pant with hardshell seat is a great idea -- but the fit is definitely not super flattering.

 Does it have a loop to hang it on a coat hook?

If not I'm out, I'm sick of my Endura jackets slipping of the hook at home, my RF, TNF and every other freaking jacket on the planet have loops, why Endura have you foresaken me!?!
  • + 2
 Seems like outwear brands are doing this and it drives me crazy. I guess they don't want to penetrate the fabric any more than they have to, and stitching that little piece in will do exactly that. I have a new North Face Gore-tex jacket without the loop, and just got a Marmot that's Gore Windstop and it's the same. I can understand the waterproof jacket but a windproof jacket? Really? Great jackets but I never realized how much I appreciate that little loop until it was gone.

 My old version of this jacket has a hood and I hated it. It was really bulky and couldn't easily be folded away, so hopefully this one is better. Not a fan of their products considering the price, they look good, but long term durability just isn't there. I bought their MT500 Spray trousers in the past. The seat area was massive on them, disproportionate to the medium size. They also let water in so easily due to the material they used. The taped seams came unbonded after only a short period of time as well.

 I had the last MT500 but won’t be going for it again.

The jacket looked nice and for the first few rides performed very well.

Then I wore it for Snowdon on a particularly wet day and when i reached the bottom my new phone was dead as was my car key. Had no phone for the rest of the weekend and had to call The AA out to come and dry my key and replace the battery before I could move.

Not long after the main zip failed (had the jacket about 12 months worse it probably less than 10 times).

Sent back to CRC who were unable to replace and gave me £200 store credit so got 2 Raceface Chutes. So now I use one for riding and one for an everyday rain coat. It’s a little heavier than the MT500 but had zero issues and crc often have them on sale for £100.

The RF chute looks a bit better too imo

 Seriously. My MT500 shorts are straight up the worst piece of cycling gear I've ever bought. The fit was great, but the seams delaminated after three rides, zippers failed, basically everything that can go wrong did. Absolute garbage. Buy 7mesh or Gore Bike if you ride where it's soggy. This shit sucks.

 @myfriendgoose: Totally agree, 7MESH is a class above what Endura offer.
