The Endura Singletrack Lite is a very capable short but it may be a bit skinny for some riders
Endura is only offering this red colour on the Singletrack Lite for a limited period, so get it while you can.
As the name suggests, the Singletrack Lite is a stripped-back version of the company’s award winning Singletrack short — lighter weight and with fewer features.
It’s made from four-way stretch nylon, but this is slightly stiffer feeling compared to other shorts that also feature the same fabric. It is, however, slightly more water-resistant and, with a thicker seat panel, easily resists summer wheel-splatter.
The Singletrack Lite has a zippered front fly with a traditional button fastener. There are belt loops and waist adjusters — the latter have easy-grab Velcro tags and a good range of adjustment.
Zipped thigh vents increase ventilation and the side pockets are zipped too, but we’d rather they were just a bit deeper.
The Singletrack Lite lacks a liner, but it’s good value and has sensible features. Our only issue is that the slim fit may not suit everyone; it’s a tight squeeze with some brands of kneepad.
