Suffice to say; winter is not the most welcoming time of year for riding mountain bikes. If the trails aren't as frozen as your fingers and toes, then they're probably a boggy swamp mess. Fortunately, the offerings of cold-weather kit and accessories make our lives much more bearable during the chilly season. Adding to the mix is Endura's new MT500 Freezing Point collection.
There are a few pieces in the range to keep you warm and dry from head to toe. So here's a whistle-stop look through the Freezing Point line-up.
MT500 Freezing Point Jacket
This jacket has been updated for men, and it's brand new for women this season also. Using PrimaLoft® Gold Insulation for panel construction on the sleeves, front and hood, this stretchy jacket offers warmth and manoeuvrability.
Other features of the Endura MT500 Freezing Point jacket include an adjustable cosy hood and a soft, textured inner face fabric around the inside of the collar. The shoulder panels have silicone grip panels that work well with backpacks for all-day adventures. And for when you are out all day or just really giving it the beans, the jacket's ventilation is enabled by large underarm vents with 2-way zips that extend onto the back. The jacket is finished off with a non-toxic, durable water repellent to keep spray and drizzle at bay.
The Men's jacket is available in sizes XS-XXL in electric blue and in black, and the women's jacket comes in sizes XS-XXL in paprika and in black.
MT500 Freezing Point Gilet
A new one for the collection is a gilet for ultimate layering versatility whether you're on the bike or not. Essentially, the gilet has all the same features as the MT500 Freezing Point Jacket, but without the sleeves or the hood.
Available in electric blue and in black in sizes XS-XXL.
MT500 Freezing Point Glove
Nobody enjoys cold numb has on a bike ride, which is why Endura's MT500 Freezing Point gloves provide warmth and waterproof protection. These gloves are constructed using a fully waterproof construction with a waterproof, breathable internal membrane and PFC free DWR finish combined with PrimaLoftTM Gold insulation.
The long cuff features a Velcro adjuster, locking the glove in place for extra protection and making getting it on and off easier with cold hands. Super sticky Silicone prints on the palms and fingers give security, while the shaping on the fingers reduces bulk at the joints and helps them bend and form on the bars and the brakes.
