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.
These are everything I want from a glove, I can’t think of anything I would change.
These gloves are solid for light duty riding. Mine split in the palm after 3 or 4 rides but Kitsbow was great and replaced them. Very comfortable. Would recommend sizing up as they are really tight at the wrist.
I lost 1 of my previous Kitsbow gloves and bought this to replace it. Of course, I found the other right after I received these. But these are much lighter weight & should be better when summer returns that my old ones.
Palm pad it way to thick and the kitsbo square is uncomfortable. Thumb sweat pad needs to be less cut into. Wrist area doesn't breath very well.
These gloves fit snugly, but aren't too heavy. They feel substantial - especially on the palms. By far my favorite pair now
