You might think a Scottish clothing brand isn’t brilliantly placed for developing hot weather kit, but Endura's collaborations with top-level racers including the Movistar squad has lifted its road cycling kit up to a globally competitive - if not world-leading level. Luckily - given current travel restrictions - the Xtract Lite kit isn't just for that summer week in the scorching foreign sun either, it works great when you’re sweating out the virtual miles inside, too.
