We believe in the basics done right, and that a great short deserves a great liner. The Zen Cycling Liner is simply, an exceptionally well-built staple for cycling comfort.

Spec'd with a highly comfortable Cytech® chamois pad, the breathable compression fabric supports comfortably, minimizing fatigue.

Designed to be worn as a liner, or alone as a short.
Made To Order, Less Waste™ simply means minimizing waste — by making only what is needed — and maximizing our flexibility to offer customers more choices, more colors, sizes and fits.

More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

CRASH POLICY

Our crew often rides hard and we are here for you when things go awry. If you crash and trash your Kitsbow, get in touch with us.

If it can be repaired, we'll do that for a reasonable charge. If it can't be repaired (if you were really ripping it), we'll figure out a way to get you back on your bike wearing Kitsbow anyway. Just get in touch. The same policy applies to typical wear and tear: we'll repair it for a reasonable charge (if it can be repaired) or get you back into Kitsbow some other way if it cannot be repaired.

Zen Cycling Liner

First Liner I have owned since the late 70's early 80's. That being said materials are different since then if I remember and this was the first time using one. I can tell you after four plus hours in the saddle I had no discomfort what so ever. This is a game changer for me. I am 6'3" 235 pds. and ordered the XXL. They were snug but after a short period of time I forgot I was wearing them. Very well made and worth the investment for the right equipment.

Zen liner shorts

Great shorts. Took them on a 3 hour ride over weekend and forgot I was wearing them. The pad is comfortable, shorts are breathable for hot days. Fit is firm but not overly tight. I will be taking these on my hut to hut trip in September

A very comfortable pair of cycling shorts

Thus far, I've used these shorts for indoor cycling and since it's summer here in North Carolina, they've seen some abuse! They're quite comfortable to wear, with a great chamois and no irritation from the seams. I have been spoiled by other pairs of shorts with cargo pockets, but I can't hold it against the simplicity offered by these liners. I definitely recommend them.

Nice liners, nice chamois

They are comfy and are well made. They do run small. I have a 35-36” waist and feel the XL is too tight and a XXL is a better fit.

Great shorts

finally pulled the trigger on these and wore them for a ride this weekend. They are definitely a thicker material than my other liners, but really well made. I had to keep reminding myself to notice them dirung the ride so that i could assess the quality. They are extreamly comfortable and to the extent that it is possible to forget you are wearing a cycling liner, i forgot that i was wearing a cycling liner. Another great product by kitsbow. I think i will buy the ventilated version next time to get a more breathable option.
