The Lab: Endura Singletrack Trousers Review

In the “The Lab” we present the latest products and put them through their paces for you. Some undergo long-term tests, while we check others out only briefly. This time we reveal how the Endura Singletrack trousers fared.

The fit and feel of the new Endura Singletrack trousers encourage rowdy riding.

Yes, UK Tester Trev has only had these trousers for one month, surely that’s not enough for a long-term test? Well, ever since he got his hands on them they have been inseparable, 21 rides, 21 trips through the washing machine and tumble dryer and 3 crashes. Coinciding with a wet and cold snap in Scotland, these new Endura Singletrack Trousers have been a well-timed arrival. The outgoing design was well known for its rugged durability and the latest incarnation have retained the tough nylon fabrics and no-nonsense design. The style is fitted, so you don’t feel like a mountain biking ‘MC Hammer’, and there is plenty of space for knee pads. The new waistband and stretch fabric on the articulated knees adds some cool ‘moto’ styling, and there are enough secure pockets to carry keys, phones and a bag of Jelly Babies.

The new moto-style articulated panels add good stretch to the fabric and help shed the ‘restrictive’ trouser feel.
There are ample pockets for trail essentials, but be sure to use the zippered ones if you don’t want to leave your keys on the trail

The trousers are not fully seam sealed so do let a bit of water in during a heavy downpour, but the DWR coated nylon is waterproof enough to keep you protected from spray and light rain. If the sun pokes its head out you can crack open the meshed air vents for maximum ventilation. The double stitched seams are standing up to repeated washing and drying, and a couple of unexpected trips to the dirt did nothing but ruffle the nylon a little. When the weather gets cold and wet, there’s no better feeling than pulling on a pair of riding trousers, inversely there is no worse feeling than grime and freezing water running down your legs into your socks when wearing shorts.

The Endura Singletracks have become essential winter armour.


The Endura Singletrack trousers are affordable, comfortable and well designed, and have become a firm addition to Trevs winter armour, brap.
