Scottish-based clothing brand, Endura, worked with ultra-distance cyclist James Hayden to develop its range of clothing designed specifically for gravel riding and more adventurous excursions.

The GV500 Reiver S/S Jersey is part of this new range, drawing its design cues from road jerseys, but with certain tweaks to the fit, material, and number of pockets to make it better suited to these activities.

After winning the 2019 National Single-Speed Cross-Country Mountain Biking Championships and claiming the plushie unicorn (true story), Stefan swapped the flat-bars for drop-bars and has never looked back. 

Since then, he’s earnt his 2ⁿᵈ cat racing licence in his first season racing as a third, completed the South Downs Double in under 20 hours and Everested in under 12.

But his favourite rides are multiday bikepacking trips, with all the huge amount of cycling tech and long days spent exploring new roads and trails - as well as histories and cultures. Most recently, he’s spent two weeks riding from Budapest into the mountains of Slovakia
