  • We couldn’t help notice the rugged Mechanix Wear gloves in the wild, loved by riders but lacking the features specific to riding. We met the team at Mechanix Wear, because they were Kitsbow customers. The next step was obvious.

Kitchel Lightweight Glove

The Kitchel started with a need for a functionally simple, minimal feeling glove especially for hot weather. It evolved to become a glove with maximum feel for the handlebar, but “fade away” once underway, with no binding, no hot spots, almost as if it weren’t there. The Kitchel inspires confidence and control.

Our customers told us that it needed to be tough and literally handle the stress of hard use, staying put on the wrist and protecting from abrasion from trees and brush on the trail. The close-fit wrist cuff provides security and keeps in place, but isn’t noticeable when you start to ride. Vent holes provide aeration; a flash of Kitsbleu marks these as Kitsbow gear.

Mechanix Wear tapped their huge expertise in professional work gloves to strike the balance we specified.

Expensive and fragile, impossible fit.

-These gloves tore open the first time that I used them. -Read reviews and they do run small, so I sized up. Good fit once on but no adjustment at the cuff so they're impossible to get on and off. -Can't use a phone with them on, so good luck getting them on and off for photos and navigating. -Padding is for MTB hand position, no good for gravel riding on the hoods or drops. Save yourself the trouble of the return and just go get a pair of mechanix at the hardware store if that's what you're after. $16 instead of $40 and you wont have to return them.

BEST GLOVES EVER!

Having recently put my finger thru a pair of gloves from one of the big clothing manufacturers I thght I'd give Kitsbow a try as I appreciate their pivot to PPE. After a month riding them in mud, rain and heat I can say they are the BEST gloves I have used in 25+ years of mountain biking! Perfect amount of protection, padding and grip. Takes some effort to get them on but well worth it as I never think twice about them once I start riding!

Sweet gloves

My favorite gloves for spring through fall. Lightweight, breathable materials and quality stitching. Just the right amount of grip and without the unnecessary excess padding or materials of competing gloves. Highly recommend and order a size up. I wear Medium in most Kitsbow items. So went with Large.
