Our Verdict
"The Kitsbow Ventilated V2 is the recently updated version of our previous Editors' Choice Award for trail and cross country riding, the Kitsbow A/M Ventilated, and the new version maintains that top step on the podium. Attention to detail and very thoughtful design make these shorts the best fitting and pedal friendly in our test selection. These shorts have a tailored functional performance fit and user-friendly features that improve your experience out on the trail. These shorts are high end, as their price tag suggests, but they have the quality craftsmanship, materials, and performance to match. The slimmer and shorter fit of these shorts won't likely be the first choice of the gravity oriented crowd, but anyone who values quality, comfort, and on-trail performance should check out the Ventilated V2."
