Endura release new Singletrack II gloves for the summer

Gloves are one of the hardest working bits of clothing in a mountain bikers wardrobe. All that grippy the bars, crashing through the undergrowth and fixing broken chains, it’s no easy life.

With that in mind Scottish-based clothing brand Endura has released the new Singletrack II glove. The original was something of a classic, but feeling there was room for improvement, they’ve gone back to the drawing board and built on those strong foundations.

Aiming to keep the glove as slim and low profile as possible, Endura has axed all non-essential features. The Singletrack II glove then is made from a  breathable 4-way stretch mesh with pre-curved fingers.

What details there are, and there are a few, include an elasticated Jacquard cuff with pull-off tab, double layer palm for durability with a silicone detail, also extending to the index and fore  finger,  for extra grip.

Durability should be taken care off with a thumb crotch overlay that protects this high friction area. Some light padding on the palm reduces pressure on the main area of contact.

Palm perforations allow for ventilation so your hands don’t get sweaty and there’s a monster sweat/snot wipe on the index finger.

The new Singletrack II Glove is available in two colour ways (black with ultramarine details and black + white with green highlights) in sizes S-XL and retails at £26.99.

    Durability – or lack of from the original. Mine have acquired a number of finger holes , stitching failure and velcro that lasted 3 months before failing to attach at all, all from intermittent use, no tumbles. This product desperately needed improvement. The thumb reinforcement is inadequate as it doesn’t wrap far enough round onto the palm – my pair failed on the join between the reinforcing panel and the palm, within a couple of weeks. Keep yer fancy colours and make gloves that last.

    If only I had bought a half dozen pairs of AXO Tiburon gloves, they lasted for 3 years before any holes appeared at all.

    My current gloves – from Toolstation – Buildtex work gloves, a cheaper version of one by DeWalt. Not as close fitting or quite as comfy, but they will last.

    Will definitely but as my next glove, had the original for past year with no problems. Comfortable, durable and last longer than any other glove I’ve owned!
