The Pro SL bibtights feature Endura’s choice of three pad widths to suit different rider sit bone anatomy. It’s the same pad as used in Endura’s pro level kit which is used by the Movistar team and the bibshorts have come top in several of our grouptests.
Endura’s product director Pamela Barclay says: “Pro SL is our gold standard road collection and Movistar Team’s influence can clearly be seen in the signature pieces. When Nairo Quintana wins La Vuelta a España with our 700 series pad, the logical step is to broaden the range of products in which that same technology is offered.”
The Pro SL bibtights are made of Roubaix-style thermal fabric and include windproof panels on the legs and groin area. Endura says that the windproofing is achieved while still retaining stretch. The windproofing extends to the back of the thighs, providing additional protection against road spray. There is also a raw edge to the bottom of the legs, reflectives on the calves and insulation in the bibs. Price is £139.99 or there’s a padless version for £119.99 and men’s sizes are between S and XXL.

Other Pro SL kit includes a high-stretch windproof thermal jacket, with insulation on the chest and sleeves and a lighter thermal fabric on the back. There’s also a waterproof shell jacket, an insulated packable gilet, socks and arm, leg and knee warmers.
Finally, the Classics jersey is waterproof, windproof , stretchy and breathable. It has short sleeves and comes with separate armwarmers. More details on Endura’s website.
