MTB Trousers
« on: 25, November, 2021, 04:35:21 PM »
Prob wrong chat room for this. I'm wondering where people in the know go for MTB clothing. Not withstanding the MAD options - I'm looking of rsome form of long legged things. Preferably ones that can accommodate the "odd" spill because of stupid wet roots.


I've been getting by with a pair of road leggings - but they are starting to disintegrate with all my acrobatic tumbles.


Black Friday tomorrow. So hoping to catch a deal somewhere.

Check out the Endura brand either 3/4 length or full leg length. There might be local retail options or the usual online options.

There's this place as well which I'm sure everyone here is already fully aware of but I'll throw up the link anyway. I'm not affiliated with them.

Cyclesuperstore.ie gives cycling Ireland members 12.5% off as well as 20 voucher each year - worth checking out to get full benefit of your annual CI fee.

You can also check out foxracing.ie

What i like about their pants is the waist sizing, there is 32,34,36 etc so you can get good fit. I found out the waist adjusters on other pants when getting the regular sizing S,M,L are not working that well for me.

They offer free postage on returns so i would get various sizes and send back etc.

Endura is a safe bet as well, good quality and durable kit

Bought of pair of these this week




https://www.chainreactioncycles.com/ie/en/leatt-exclusive-trail-2-0-mtb-pants/rp-prod207457


I've put on a bit of weight recently, and found the XXL I bought, to fit my, near, 36" waist.


I do question me getting my full shin knee pads under them (I will make them fit), but the are pretty well fitting, come with a liner, and feel. like they will repeal dirt well.


Considering how hard I crash, I'm not sure how robust they will be, but am happy with the purchase so far.


Not worn them yet in any anger, but I did think it was good value.
Mileage may vary...., blah blah blah

It's a pity endura discountinued mt500 in 3/4 th guise. These were great pants. They only do hummavee in this length unfortunately...
