Kitsbow Mountain Bike apparel’s Icon Shirt featured in Bike Rumor

by P.K. Hart November 15, 2014

Bike Rumor just gave coverage to the extremely popular Icon shirt by Kitsbow.

Kitsbow Mountain Bike apparel appreciates the editing team at bike rumor for their kind words about The Icon Shirt.

It is our principal ambition to create the finest mountain bike apparel on the market; using only the best materials available. Each time we receive a brilliant review like this, it makes us feel that much closer to realizing that goal and makes all the hard work worth it. The Icon shirt was made to be our headliner for the fall season and the positive response that we have received lets us know that we are heading in the right direction.

“As the leaves start to change and you notice your summer gear is not quite warm enough for the full ride anymore, many of us will begin to reach for another layer. As we learned in Vegas, plaid is a pretty good indication of someone who is into bikes, but few plaids are on the level of Pendleton Wool. After producing Indian Trade Blankets in the early 1900′s out of Pendleton, Oregon, Pendleton later introduced the first plaid wool shirt for men and continues to turn out color fast fabric all woven in their Washougal, Washington mill.

Kitsbow designer and co-founder Charlie Cronk felt that Pendleton’s tradition and quality mixed with their own modern touches would make the perfect wool shirt and the Icon was born. True to form, all of the wool is woven in Washougal, Washington and then shipped to San Francisco where the shirt is hand sewn. Part classic wool and part modern with Schoeller 3XDRY panels on the shoulder and elbows, the Icon should live up to its name for years to come on the trail.”
