Rites of Spring – SS21 Road Bike Clothing Review

It’s been a long hard winter and whether you’ve been plugging away outdoors or getting your Ride On indoors, it’s times to get your good bike ready for a new season on the road. And if you’re on your good bike, you’ll need some flash new kit to wear in the saddle. Our Spring collection is hitting Endura dealers worldwide, so we thought we’d pick out a few highlights for you to whet your appetites.

Always innovating – never complacent even with a proven success, we started with a clean canvas when de-signing the Women’s Pro SL Bibshort. The result, an updated and significantly improved DropSeat design that helps quick and easy comfort breaks without the need to strip off jerseys and jackets. The new bib construction combines wide elastic crossover back straps and a supportive high wicking front mesh panel. This design securely holds the shorts in place when riding and allows them to be easily pulled down when nature calls without the need for a zip.

Stone Cold Classic – the men’s Pro SL Bibshort received an overhaul last year and picked up awards at once. We scrutinised the fit, fabrics and panel design to deliver a quantum leap forward for this best-seller. A high power lumbar panel locks the short in place while the re-engineered bib supplies added lightweight support. The more aggressive silhouette eliminates groin creasing and the re-mastered raw edge hem removes any risk of chafing or irritation.

2021 = Pro SL Pumpkin. Our new colourway in Pro SL was a huge hit, so we’ve carried this through to summer, with eye-catching versions of our Pro SL Jersey and Pro SL Lite Jersey for men. The women’s version of the Pro SL Jersey gets a stunning new Berry colour choice that you can find throughout our new women’s road collections.

Get graphical – if you like to stand out in the bunch, the limited edition Graphics kit is for you – we’ve taken key colours from our FS260-Pro range and added bold prints into the mix to create the Asym, Equalizer and Canimal kits – co-ordination from head to toe with caps (not hats) and socks too. Beauty is more than skin deep with the graphics jerseys and we’ve used high quality Italian made fabrics carefully chosen to rapidly move moisture away from your skin. Raw edge cuffs and a bonded hem gives these jersey the clean, contemporary look and feel they deserve.

Accessorise yo’ self – we have a vast range of accessories to keep you in the saddle longer, whilst looking smarter too. Check out the latest mitts and socks – go matchy-matchy or clashy-clashy – more colours and patterns than ever before.
