Winter biking can be a ton of fun, but not without a solid kit of warm, water-repelling riding gear. Based in Scotland, Endura has been producing top-notch foul-weather gear for a while now, and for this winter they’ve updated and expanded their MT500 Freezing Point collection.

The men’s MT500 Freezing Point jacket has seen some design updates, and Endura is now offering a women’s model as well. To keep your core cozy and warm the new MT500 Freezing Point Gilet has been added to the lineup, and their MT500 Freezing Point gloves promise to keep your hands dry and happy on chilly winter rides.

Endura MT500 Freezing Point Jackets:

Endura calls the MT500 Freezing Point their ‘ultimate winter MTB jacket’, but that hasn’t stopped them from making improvements to their latest models. The updated men’s jacket features new details, paneling, and aesthetics, and the all-new women’s model offers the same design and construction features with a women’s specific cut.

The MT500 Freezing Point trousers didn’t get any updates for this winter, but this photo shows how well they complement the jacket.

The jacket’s body panels are made from a lightweight ripstop fabric, while the back and underarm panels are built with a stretch thermal softshell fabric that features a new Primaloft® inner face on the back and lower sleeves. Endura provides warmth with Primaloft® Gold insulation in the sleeves, front torso and in the hood (and notes how the new inner face fabric elsewhere provides a little insulation while wicking moisture). This insulation offers 4-way stretch, an excellent weight-to-warmth ratio, breathability, packability, and water repellency.

The jackets’ hood and collar have both seen notable updates; the hood’s adjustment system features revised compression routing and the collar now has printed graphics to highlight its internal toggles. The collar itself has received a new stiffener and a soft inner fabric around the back of the neck. Durable shoulder panels with silicone grips keep this jacket pack-friendly.

For ventilation, Endura provides two large 2-way zippered underarm vents that extend around your sides but won’t get hidden behind a pack. The sizeable 2-way zipped front pockets also double as vents, so dumping body heat shouldn’t be a problem.

The jackets are treated with a durable, PFC-free, non-toxic water repellent finish. Finishing details include a hidden internal pocket, and reflective accents on the hood, cuff, and tail.

The MT500 Freezing Point Jacket sells for $199.99. Men’s and women’s sizes range from XS-XXL. Men’s color options are Electric Blue and Black, and the women’s models come in Paprika or Black.

MT500 Freezing Point Gilet:

Designed to be worn under a waterproof jacket or as an outer layer over a jersey, the new MT500 Freezing Point Gilet is an easy way to add some core warmth to your winter ride.

The gilet’s construction is similar to the jacket above, just without the sleeves and hood. The body fabrics and insulation are the same, and despite the lack of sleeves Endura still uses the softshell Primaloft fabric on the back panel to ensure free movement.

The gilet also gets the jacket’s durable shoulder panels, front pockets that double as vents, and eco-friendly water repellent finish. The MT500 Freezing Point gilet includes a hidden internal pocket, and reflective trim on the tail. It is available in Electric Blue or Black, and sizes range from XS-XXL. MSRP is $169.99.

Last but not least, your hands need to be happy on a cold ride so Endura offers the MT500 Freezing Point gloves. These gloves are warm and fully waterproof, thanks to their internal membrane and PFC-free DWR outer finish. Primaloft Gold insulation and a long Velcro-adjustable cuff ensure warmth and coverage, while stretchy softshell back and finger panels provide dexterity.

Silicone prints on the palm and ergonomically shaped fingers keep you glued to the grips, and the gloves’ aesthetic details match up with the other pieces in this lineup. The MT500 Freezing Point Gloves sell for $69.99.
