Fabrics & Materials

Airstream™

Airstream™ is an extremely lightweight stretch fabric, which offers full wind protection. Its unique properties mean that it can be compacted to a small size easily.

Baabaa Merino

Our BaaBaa Merino wool is used in its purest form for baselayer and as part of a fabric blend for our warmer and sock ranges.

CoolMax®

For warm weather cycling, COOLMAX® fabric’s four-channel fibre rapidly pulls sweat away to keep you comfortable and dry.

Cordura®

Cordura® offers rugged durability and lightweight strength, being resistant to abrasions, tears and scuffs.

Dry-Clim™

A technically developed material composed of microfibres designed to expel sweat and provide maximum comfort for the athlete.

Entrant DT®

Entrant DT is an innovative, highly waterproof and moisture permeable lightweight fabric. Its unique inner surface treatment gives a smooth and refreshing, dry feel.

Evolution™

Evolution™ fabric is a highly waterproof and moisture permeable soft-shell fabric with great stretch. Its unique inner surface maintains an optimal dry feel.

ExoShell™ 40

Using a unique 3 layer construction ExoShell™ fabrics achieve a colossal breathability rating of up to 60,000g/m²/24hr and an impressive waterproof rating of 18,000mm. The key to the ExoShell™ family’s impressive breathability lies in the ultrafine, fluorine free membrane which is up to 50% thinner than standard membranes, protected by a super-fine denier tricot laminate. ExoShell60™’s breathability is further enhanced by the impregnation of a proprietary compound which stimulates the moisture transmission. The progressive construction on ExoShell40™ and ExoShell60™ not only provides impressive breathability ratings but at a mere 70gsm and 105gsm respectively, they boast an incredible durability to weight ratio and results in minimal pack size. Both ExoShell40™ and ExoShell60™ fabrics are Bluesign approved and the DWR treatments are PFC-free providing strong environmental credentials.

Lycra®

This material is used as an additive in all of our skin-tight leg-wear to offer optimal stretch and recovery characteristics.

Meryl®

Meryl fabric contains particularly fine fibres, producing a lightweight fabric characterised by soft handle, breathability and resistance to wind and rain.

MIG

MIG softshell is a highly elastic performance waterproof and breathable fabric. Not only does it have four way stretch it is also lightweight ensuring excellent comfort to the wearer at all times.

PTFE Protection™

PTFE membrane technology is employed by high performance fabrics including Goretex® and eVent. The characteristic microporous structure of this material provides excellent moisture vapour transmission properties with impressive breathability ratings of up to 28,000g/m2/24hrs.

Roubaix®

Ideal for cold weather cycling, Roubaix is a lightweight, brushed back, thermal fabric that stays comfortable even when wet and is quick drying.

TEFLON®

High Performance Repel TEFLON® fabric protector prevents fabric wetting out. TEFLON® is a registered trademark of DuPont used under licence by Endura Ltd.

Thermolite®

Ideal for cold weather cycling, THERMOLITE® uses hollow-core fi bre technology to create an insulating layer of warm air. The result is a lightweight, warm fabric with superior moisture vapour transport properties that doesn’t get heavy even when wet. The THERMOLITE® quality developed by Endura has the added benefi t of a High Performance Repel TEFLON® fabric protector fi nish (from DuPont™).

TriLITE™

High performance fabric with a durable water repellent treatment and high power making it ideal for triathlons.

Technologies

Breathability

Measured in grams of moisture that can pass through a square metre of fabric over 24hrs (g/m2/24hrs) using the B-1 inverted cup method. All Endura waterproof garments are fully “breathable”.

Waterproof

Measured in mm of water that can be held by the fabric without leaking. 1,000mm is the minimum measurement needed to pass the accepted defi nition of “waterproof”. All Endura waterproof garments are waterproof to 5,000mm and above.

Antifog Finish

A functional anti-fog finish on the inside of the lenses resists misting from perspiration (aided by vented lenses on certain models). This helps provide unimpaired vision, particularly when stopping and starting on the bike.

Antislip

The MTR anti-slip system incorporates a one-way fabric which is applied to the inner waistband of the MTR Baggy Shorts and the lumbar of the MTR Bibshorts.  The one-way properties of this fabric create a resistance in opposing directions, locking the two surfaces together and securing the baggy shorts in place. This system significantly reduces snagging of the shorts on the bike saddle.

Clickfast™ Compatible

All Endura Baggy Shorts with the “Clickfast™ compatible” logo are Clickfast™ ready. These can be worn with any Endura Clickfast™ undershort or liner. Some Endura ranges already include a Clickfast™ liner and are marked with the “Comes with liner” logo.

coldblack® Technology

Dark colours attain a higher temperature than light colours when exposed to the same intensities of direct sunlight. coldblack® technology textile finishing reduces this effect by increasing the amount of infrared and ultraviolet UV rays that are reflected from the fabric’s surface, thereby dramatically reducing the sunlight heating effect. coldblack® also provides reliable protection from UV rays (minimum UPF 30).

Comes with Clickfast™ liner

All Endura Baggy Shorts with the “Clickfast™ compatible” logo are Clickfast™ ready. These can be worn with any Endura Clickfast™ undershort or liner. Some Endura ranges already include a Clickfast™ liner and are marked with the “Comes with liner” logo.

Hydrophobic Finish

Hydrophobic finish is a technical enhancement to the lenses allowing them to repel water and spray. Water droplets simply slide off the lens leaving streak free, clear vision.

Light Reactive

Light Reactive lenses use photochromic technology for a rapid response to changing light conditions. The lenses respond in 7 seconds to light exposure and offer full UV protection according to the standard EN1836.

Light Reactive PLUS

Light Reactive Plus lenses incorporate technology that allows for a particularly broad range of light fi ltration and so are ideal for use in widely changing light conditions. They offer full UV protection according to the standard EN1836.

Luminite II LED Unit

The updated Endura Luminite LED unit now emits 8 times more lumens than before. It offers 3 phases of flash frequency and can operate for up to 50hrs on the single coin cell battery. The Luminite LED has a twist stud attachment which allows it to be interchanged between different Luminite products and makes it simple to detach for washing the garment. On certain garments it is housed behind a soft clear silicone hood which protects it from backpack damage and prevents you losing it.
