Around here, we live in denim. And despite seeking the highest quality denim we could find, we would find ourselves with blown out crotches, worn through knees and pockets with holes in them after only a few seasons of hard wearing use. So, we set out to create the most durable pair of jeans ever made.
With many years in the making and every possible detail thought through and through, we created the Iron & Resin Enduro Denim Jeans.
We worked tirelessly with our friends at North Carolina’s Cone Mills to develop a denim jean that will hold up to our abusive lifestyles and won’t fail us when the going gets tough. American made and reinforced with Dyneema® in the actual yarn for increased abrasion and tear resistance. We won’t bore you with a bunch of technical data, but just know that there is some space-age stuff woven into the fibers of these jeans that will help save your hide should you decide to get radical.
Enduro Denim is a classic, timeless cut that recalls an era when jeans were made to take a beating. This may just be the last pair of jeans you ever need to buy.

HOW THEY FIT:
For Fall + Winter 2020, we've reworked our fit on the Enduro Denim Jeans. The classic fit denim has been revised to no longer sit too tight in the thighs, through our classic tapered fit (which has a slight taper to the cuffs). The mid-rise waist adds a little more to the back rise so your butt crack won't be showing while riding your bike. However, if you have any question on what size to order, please reach out to us before placing your order.
For reference, here are some specs from a size 32. Take you favorite pair of pants and compare for an exact fit:
- Front rise: 11 1/8"
- Back rise: 15 1/2"
- Hip: 20"
- Inseam: 33 1/4"
- Top thigh: 11 1/2"
- Knee: 8 1/8"
- Cuff opening: 7 1/4"
WASH, CARE + WEAR:
For the best results wear 4 - 6 months or as long as possible before first wash. Indigo dye may transfer onto surfaces it contracts for the first few wears. Hand or machine wash in cold water, use gentle or delicate setting. Use as little detergent as needed. Rinse and hang to dry in shady location. If jeans are cold washed per the instructions there should be no major shrinkage. In fact, they will relax and wear in like most jeans do. These jeans will age and fade in all the same places as a regular pair of jeans. They'll take on unique characteristics as you roam, ride and play.
