"CYCLING IS ABOUT YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE JOURNEY – THE ENTHUSIASM / WORK / PASSION YOU PUT INTO THE EXPERIENCE IS EQUAL TO WHAT YOU’LL GET OUT OF IT. THERE ARE THOSE WHO JUST BIKE, AND THOSE WHO LIVE TO BIKE."
We started 18 years ago with just one bike, but that one bike was loaded with more radical innovation than the entire ranges of most manufacturers. We created a massive impact, we reset some benchmarks, we learned some lessons. The biggest one was that if you have the best bike designers working with total freedom you can create something amazing.

// Childrens Bicycles
We are a small British company dedicated to making cycling fun for children. We believe that the lighter the bike, the easier it is for children to learn to ride, and to enjoy it more as they progress. Many kids' bikes on the market weigh nearly as much as the child! Our bikes are now also much easier to pedal due to a unique crank design from the renowned bicycle engineer Dimitris Katsanis (of Team GB Olympic fame). The new design reduces the Q-factor (the space between the pedals), allowing children to push more directly down when cycling, so converting more of their energy into motion. Only Frog applies this level of rigour to the design of kids' bikes.
Innovation & design has always been key to our products, something clearly demonstrated by the success of our athletes over the past 40 years. We’ve been technical supplier of clothing for some of the biggest names in our sports - in the past from Mapei & Team Italia to our current partnership with Tinkoff Saxo. In Cross Country we’ve sponsored the Italian, French, Czech, Finnish, Ukraine & Kazakhstan national teams and in Ski Mountaineering the Spanish & Italian teams. We have always strived to make the best products possible to ensure top-level athletes have the leading edge.

Endura was founded in Scotland in 1993 with a no-nonsense commitment to advancing the performance and function of cycle apparel for all. As a maverick brand, it immediately launched a host of novel and challenging products that have gone on to earn iconic status globally and in many cases reset the benchmark of function and durability for the industry. This philosophy and disruptive innovation has carried the brand from Scottish local hero to global market leader.
