Endura

Endura: Born in Scotland. Ridden Worldwide.
Endura is a Scottish based company devoted to producing high performance, long lasting cycle clothing and accessories, using the best available materials and design, by investing heavily in development and innovation since 1993. Endura has grown to become the largest brand of cycle clothing in the UK and is now sold throughout Europe, Scandinavia, Russia, Australia, New Zealand, USA, South America and the Far East. The extensive range spans MTB, road, commuter, urban clothing, eyewear, helmets and luggage as well as its “Equipe” high end road range developed with the Endura Racing team riders and its recently launched premium mountain biking range “MTR”, developed together with and extensively tested by multiple British XC Champion and three-time Olympian Oli Beckingsale. For 2013 and 2014, Endura has committed to the UCI Pro Continental licensed professional race team, Team NetApp-Endura, having stepped up from the 2012 Endura Racing Team – a team which provided the winners of the Halfords Tour Series, The Premier Calendar and the Tour of Britain, as well as enough victories in Europe to finish the rankings ahead of teams that got to ride the Tour de France and the other Grand Tours. In its role as title co-sponsor and as the team’s clothing manufacturer, Endura will receive valuable feedback and development suggestions from the team which is acting as a high speed test bed. In its history, the company has won many magazine product awards along with various industry awards including the Eurobike Design Award for clothing.
