MOUNTAIN & TRIALS
Danny MacAskill’s films may have been watched online by tens of millions of people, but he is the very last person to behave like a superstar. Instead, Danny will rock up unannounced at our headquarters with nothing on his agenda more pressing than a brew and a chinwag.
Endura and the street trials star share a proud Scottish heritage and strong mountain biking roots. It is a powerful, self-confident partnership but also great for Scotland and reinforces this wee country’s position as a hub of biking excellence.
We're stoked to protect Danny with our range of MTB protectors and helmets when he's riding at the bleeding edge of possibility.DANNY'S STORY

ROAD AND TRACK
Ambassador for Disruptive Thinking / Disruptive Ambassador. Twice a World Champion, twice an hour world record holder and a constant innovator in pursuit of speed, Graeme Obree is no ordinary brand ambassador. Obree acts as our innovative catalyst, challenging our Product Development team with leftfield ideas and pushing us to re-think rather than just think.
Routinely dismissed as a maverick during his racing career, with the benefit of hindsight, it turns out that on many levels Obree was ahead of his time. Obree was a lone voice refusing to dope at a time when it was systematic in the peloton. He was one of the first to publicly break the taboo around male mental health. He rejected material status trappings long ago in favour of simple living with a minimal environmental footprint.

Marcel Kittel, the leading sprinter of his generation and multiple Grand Tour stage winner, is part of the Endura family. He not only enjoys aiding new and existing product development, but supporting growth within cycling beyond racing, too, as he can now pick any discipline he fancies, a fact clearly echoed by his diverse bike collection of road, gravel and mountain bikes.
“Everyone has their own reason to ride and in the end, it should maybe challenge you – but for sure also make you happy,” says the ex-professional cyclist. With a palmarès like Kittel’s, it goes without saying that his experience is highly valued in the continued improvement of Endura’s professional cycling lines like the Pro SL. But he’s also keen to broadening his interests across the range to fit his new, more ‘everyday’ lifestyle – from commutes to café rides. “There’s a lot going on in the sport right now,” Kittel says. “Indoor trainers and gravel are getting really big, there are the developments in e-cycling, and we are seeing women get more of the attention they deserve; I would be very happy if we see more change in that direction.”
