The MT500 has been the backbone of the Endura line for a few seasons and it returns with more technical features than ever before. The Polytex (100 per cent polyester) fabric has a semi-brushed back, which retains warmth without holding on to undue amounts of sweat. Sweat transport is good, though not in the Helly or Nike Sphere league.
Where the MT500 does score, though, is in construction and durability. If you're going to take a spill, the MT500 will, most likely, brush it off thanks to some tear resistant panels on the sleeves. Triple rear pockets are plenty deep enough and the right-hand of the three also has a small, lined zip pocket for keeping precious things safe. Add a bunch of reflective logos to help with visibility and the MT500 looks set to continue to be a favourite with the hardcore mile munchers.
