Product review: Endura Urban Pant cycling trousers

Endura Urban Pant
£59.99

www.endura.co.uk  

Jeans or trousers that don't scream 'cyclist' have been around for a few years now – we've previously tested items from the likes of Muxu, Rapha, Swrve – but more mainstream bike companies have been slower to the party. Endura has developed a great reputation in mountain biking for more than a decade and more recently been making in-roads into the, erm, road market. However, these Urban Pants are part of a new range aimed at city cyclists.  

There's a shorts version and a heavier Urban Softshell Pant, all available in sizes S-XXL, though the only colour is black. Our medium test pair was well sized for our tester; the fit is 'slim', with higher rear waist and lower front, and a very contemporary style that tapers to the ankle (there's no material flapping about or hem adjusters required). Leg length is regular, so shorties will need turn-ups or machining.

The easycare fabric has a four-way stretch, certainly welcome across the thighs, and it comes into its own in the saddle, neither sagging or creasing after riding to work. The seamless crotch gusset means you don't get that nasty chafing you do with regular jeans and it's not visible off the bike.  

The front pockets reinforce the casual, jeans-style look, plus there are rear zipped pockets with reflective trim. There's also a loop to hold a D-lock, though we didn't feel it was strong enough without a belt. You get a free belt supplied, not to everyone's taste, and not ideal if carrying a weightier D-lock either.  

In our mixed spring weather we've been pleased to find the fabric's not bad at seeing off the odd shower; however, we got wet to the skin in a serious downpour. We didn't find any deterioration after machine-washing, though would steer clear of the tumble-dryer.  

Overall, these are less restrictive and more comfortable to ride in than jeans – and a million miles more attractive around town than cycling tights. If you need one pair of trousers for work/commute duties, they're well worth a look.

Nice review - however, it would be helpful if you could specify when it's just men's clothing, rather than assuming all cyclewear is designed for men as a default, with women's lines as an exception. I do recognise that the problem also lies with the manufacturers.
