The bib is the foundation of a road kit. The foundation of our bib is the fabric that provides thermal, compression, abrasion, and wicking performance. State-of-the art materials to sophisticated design, meticulous construction, and thoughtful detailing will make this your go-to bib. Made from domestic and imported materials, sewn in California.
I Have used the Kitsbow Coleman Valley Bib shorts a few times now for my training Mtn Bike Rides (in Pisgah Western NC). My rides are 35+ miles long at a minimum as I am training for the Tour Divide. I called and spoke with an Actual Person! He was great (and found out he has ridden one of my favorite go to trails-Kitsuma!) I was a little skeptical at first of recommending I get a size small since I have owned a few pairs of bibs and they always run small (GORE/Pearl) These were a little snug at first-but I realized after using they are snug in all the right places. The support in the thighs helps fight off muscle fatigue, and the ends don't ride up your legs. Of particular importance is the Chamois, since on the Tour I can be in the saddle for 16 hrs a day. These are Exceptional, I wish I had ordered two pair! (for the Tour). I plan on getting the Bib Knickers for the Fall/Winter rides. I have never given an Excellent review-but these are Excellent!
These bibs fit very well and I like the ergo shape to the pad insert. It doesn't feel cramped the way the Assos pad would sometimes feel. The bib construction is top notch and I like the attention to detail like the leg gripper material and mesh straps. Also good that it is made in the USA. 6' tall 160 lbs. Medium feels just right.
This is definitely the most comfortable and best fitting bib that I've ever worn. I did the laundry 3 days in a row so that I could wear again it to ride the next day - great fit and great attention to detail as alway.
I now own 4 pairs of these and will likely get more. Pretty happy with the fit and features (pockets). I was between sizes as I’m a 31 in most pants/shorts. I opted to go medium. Although size chart suggests I might be able to go small, I’m glad I didn’t.
Kitsbow definitely nailed, this one. I've ridden bibs now for years, but like how Kitsbow took premium level cut and fabric and added features to make it more mtb centric: 1) rear stash and side mini pockets. They aren't the first brand to do this, but I feel they are better thought out, particularly the small stash side pockets. 2) the bib part drops lower making them more open than a normal roadie bib, likely because mtb jerseys drop lower, requiring less high overlap I am a size 31 or 32 and went with a medium. Definitely happy with the size choice despite the fact a M comes up as a 32-33 on the chart.
