Danny MacAskill’s films may have been watched online by tens of millions of people, but he is the very last person to behave like a superstar. Instead, Danny will rock up unannounced at our headquarters with nothing on his agenda more pressing than a brew and a chinwag.
When he makes last-minute kit requests for “minor” projects like Wee Day Out and a ride to the summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, we’re happy to help. “I prefer to operate as friends,” Danny told us when we joined him for a brew in Glasgow.
Endura and the street trials star share a proud Scottish heritage and strong mountain biking roots. It is a powerful, self-confident partnership but also great for Scotland and reinforces this wee country’s position as a hub of biking excellence. Welcome to the clan, Danny.Danny's story
Marcel Kittel, the leading sprinter of his generation and multiple Grand Tour stage winner, is part of the Endura clan. He not only enjoys aiding new and existing product development, but supporting growth within cycling beyond racing, too, as he can now pick any discipline he fancies, a fact clearly echoed by his diverse bike collection of road, gravel and mountain bikes.
“Everyone has their own reason to ride and in the end, it should maybe challenge you – but for sure also make you happy,” says the ex-professional cyclist. With a palmarès like Kittel’s, it goes without saying that his experience is highly valued in the continued improvement of Endura’s professional cycling lines like the Pro SL. But he’s also keen to broadening his interests across the range to fit his new, more ‘everyday’ lifestyle – from commutes to café rides. “There’s a lot going on in the sport right now,” Kittel says. “Indoor trainers and gravel are getting really big, there are the developments in e-cycling, and we are seeing women get more of the attention they deserve; I would be very happy if we see more change in that direction.”Marcel's Story

Tim Don’s record-breaking achievement in recording the fastest time ever in an Ironman branded long distance event proves unequivocally that Endura’s QDC clothing is the fastest available to triathletes. His winning time of 7:40:23 at Ironman South America may have been blisteringly fast, but it’s worth remembering also that Tim is one of three Endura triathletes to have broken the mythical eight-hour barrier for an ultra-distance event, and that none had done so in clothing from another brand.Tim suffered a horror injury at the 2017 Ironman World Championships in 2017 and his comeback to the top-level of his sport has been nothing short of miraculous. Endura were proud to support his gruelling rehabilitation that saw him return to Iron-distance in July 2018, just nine months after breaking his neckTim's story
