MT500 – Always A #ForceForGood

MT500 is our flagship MTB collection that’s been around as long as Endura. It’s come a long way since the days of the original MTBers Lycra short with their iconic yellow Kevlar stitching that every rider over a certain age will recognise. MT500 pushes the boundaries of function, endurance and durability, consistently setting new standards in apparel for mountain bikers worldwide. Engineered apparel, helmets and protection – the collection has never been stronger or tougher.

The fabric at the heart of the killer new MT500 waterproof collection is our own ExoShell40DR, which boasts category leading breathability and waterproof ratings with the durability dialled. A tough, durable outer layer is paired with a soft touch, high wicking mesh inner layer that efficiently moves moisture away from your skin and through the super-fine fluorine free membrane sandwiched in the middle. As with all of our waterproofs, ExoShell40DR is treated with an environmentally friendly PFC free DWR treatment. ExoShell40DR is also certified as having been MADEKIND by dropping harmful substances from the supply chain; ensuring that products are safe for consumers, workers and the environment.

The latest version of the MT500 Waterproof Jacket keeps all of the considered features that earned its status as King of the Mountain Jackets status. With stacks of pockets, various clever venting options and an adjustable hood among the extensive list it takes a quantum leap forward with improved fit, styling and detailing. The MT500 continues its reign as the undisputed king of mountain bike jackets.

If you follow the Atherton’s socials you can’t have missed the new MT500 Waterproof One Piece. Our do-it-all, foul-weather one piece just got even better. Guaranteed to put a smile on your face, the serious tech at its heart is ready to be deployed when nothing else is up to the job. This all-mountain onesie reminds you that the worst weather can deliver the best days.

We’ve kept the successful one piece, split front design for maximum mud protection and comfort fit, however significant changes have been made to the construction around the rear with the “jacket” tail now extending further down. A gusseted attachment to the waistband improves fit with less pulling on this crucial part, and allows for more height accommodation. The onesie now features more of a jacket and pants “separates” look. The heavily sprayed rear area also benefits from improved waterproofing.

We’ve also seriously turned up the “All Mountain” dial to create the latest and greatest iteration of the MT500 Waterproof Trouser and MT500 Waterproof Short. With the new, more durable ExoShell40DR fabric and styling update to keep them in line with the rest of the revamped MT500 waterproof collection, these are sure to be your go to wet weather trousers for rides to come.

Made from exceptionally breathable and durable ExoShell40DR three layer waterproof fabric in a fully seam-sealed construction, the trouser as well as the short are pre-shaped for great on bike articulated fit with stretch panels for unrestricted movement. They feature water resistant hand pockets, an extra durable seat panel, knee pad compatible fit, and belt loops and zipped fly popper closure. The MT500 Waterproof Trouser has long, thigh height two way water repellent side zips which make the trousers easy to get on and off, with the top half of the zips doubling up as thigh vents with mesh gussets.

Our confidence is so strong in quality of the MT500 collection that all products are supported by our 90 Day Satisfaction Guarantee.
