Competitive Cyclist Reviews the Kitsbow Softshell A/M Shorts

by P.K. Hart May 29, 2014

“My first reaction to the Kitsbow A/M Shorts was, “wow,” which was immediately followed by a much louder, and more expletive-laden version of, “wow,” upon hearing the cost. There’s no two ways about it — they’re expensive. Over the years here at Competitive, I’ve become increasingly well accustomed to ever-more expensive bikes, clothing, and parts, but something about a pair of baggies breaking the $250 mark was different. That said, after a full year in these shorts, I’m able to say with confidence that, not only would I buy them again (if they wore out, but more on that later), but that I’ve also become the most unlikely evangelist for bank-breaking mountain bike clothing.”

"Fortunately, this henley splits the difference with a trim but not awkward fit and merino-poly fabric that's cool in the wind but tough enough to take the abuse of errant rocks and branches."
