  • 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.

Stylish and tough

The Kitchel Gloves get it done. I've worn them on the bike, and straight into a mountain run, using them to scramble over rocks and tough terrain. Ventilation could be a touch better - they seem to retain moisture, but this is due to the tough natural materials, so you win big on durability. The light blue accents and K patch differentiate these from the standard black glove, which is nice.

Well fitted, disappear

The wide variety of sizes is nice to get the fit dialed. Once on the gloves really disappear and I don’t think about ‘em til the come off at the end of the ride. No annoying seams, loose running areas and so forth.

Two Days in the Colorado Mountains

Used them for two days straight, right out of the box, riding at Keystone, Colorado. Light and durable. You do not even notice you have them on. A little tight getting on, but once on - great glove.

#badassgloves

They’re perfect. Just the right weight, just enough padding. I forget I’m wearing them, until I notice I am and then it makes me happy! I ordered on the smaller end, aiming to fit the length of my hand closer than the width. The gloves were very tight to put on the first time, just right for every use after.
