As many mountain bikers are trending towards full body overage, even in warmer conditions, Endura has stepped up to offer lighter, more breathable versions of their popular MT500 gear. The new MT500 Burner Lite kit retains features Endura liked about their popular MT500 Burner gear, but the Lite versions are built to keep you cool without compromising on durability and protection.
The new MT500 Burner Lite kit includes pants (for men and women) and a long sleeve jersey, offering full body coverage while keeping things light and breathable for summer shredding.
Endura MT500 Burner Lite Pant:
The new MT500 Burner Lite pant was designed to be just as comfortable and durable as the Burner pant, but offer a much lighter and more ventilated construction. These pants are an ideal choice for summer bike park laps or trail riding, and they’re available in men’s and women’s models (all construction features are the same, but with different tailoring for guys and gals).
The pants main fabric offers four-way stretch, and the legs feature laser cut ventilation on the inside and outside areas just below the knees. Behind the knees are flexible and breathable mesh panels. The MT500 Burner Lites are treated with a durable, PFC-free water repelling finish.
The Burner Lite pants offer a slim overall profile, but the legs are cut to allow ample room for kneepads. For storage you get a pair of zippered hand pockets with zipper pulls for easy operation with gloves.
At the waist Endura provides a zip fly with a single button closure, and they’ve included a fabric hood to keep the zipper from touching your belly. Velcro waist adjuster straps provide simple size adjustments, and Endura’s Clickfast buttons allow for a solid connection with the brand’s compatible liner shorts or bibs.
The Burner Lite pants sell for $149.99. Men’s color options are black, olive green or Atlantic (blue) and sizes range from S-XXL. Women’s color choices are black or Blueberry, and sizing goes from XS-XXL.
MT500 Burner Lite LS Jersey:
Like the pants, the new MT500 Burner Lite long sleeve jersey is a lighter, airier version of Endura’s MT500 Burner jersey. This new jersey is only available in a men’s model.
The MT500 Burner Lite jersey’s main body is constructed with breathable, moisture-wicking mesh fabrics, with durable stretch woven fabrics across the sleeve panels to ensure durability where needed. At least 50% of the fabric used in these jerseys is recycled material.
The Burner Lite jersey features laser cut ventilation on the forearms, and a silicone shoulder print to provide some grip for backpack straps. It offers a simple rounded collar, and a lean, flap-free cut that can still accommodate slimmer body protection underneath.
MSRP for the MT500 Burner Lite jersey is $79.99. Men’s sizes S-XXL are available, and color options are black, Tangerine or Blueberry.
