Go faster, stay cooler, ride harder in the improved lightweight short built to breathe

Like riding naked, only better. A tough and technical ride short optimized with mesh panels for max airflow. Updated refinements include a built-in belt and auto-locking zip for a comfortable, perfect fit that will make this durable softshell short seem to disappear beneath you.






Fabrication & Features

  • Highly mobile, but remarkably durable soft shell
  • Generous stretch mesh paneling in front, waist, and sides ensure maximum active ventilation
  • Tailored profile ensures short won’t snag on saddle or flap in the wind on fast descents
  • Simplified alloy hook at the waist enable a full 3 inches of adjustability
  • Articulated waistband subtly raised in back and lowered at sides to ensure complete coverage while reducing potential hotspots
  • The back of each knee breaks right where your knees bend and is shaped so it won’t brush your calves with the pedal stroke
  • Zippered side pockets are reversed and contoured for easy access and comfortable storage
  • “Low profile fly construction” - we eliminated the snap with a beefier auto-locking zip and inner snap, but no big snap. it’s more comfortable on your belly under the belt.
  • Inset mesh fabric on back yoke interfaces with mesh ventilation panels on the Ventilated Cycling Liner
  • Reflective hits on the back and side
  • Subtle Kitsbow embroidery

Great trail shorts

Excellent fabric, tough but light. Fits true to size. Finish details are impeccable. Really nice trail shorts that’s well thought out

Lightweight and well constructed

I've only gotten the chance to ride once so far with these and they were great. Good movement, comfortable, breathed well. Only negatives: could be a little more water resistant (I know it's always a tradeoff between that and breathability), and the tail of the buckle comes out sometimes. The latter is not a big deal. Be aware that this only has two rear-facing side pockets, but they're nicely sized, so they work great.

Ventilated Short V2.

I love the new shorts. I must admit that I thought manmade fibre maybe too warm for the semi- tropics (Brisbane) but I thought I would give them a try out anyway. I am glad I did as they are just great for my early morning ride and they are well ventilated and cool. They also look a **** of a lot better than my old baggy shorts, so I do not look so daggy when ordering my flat white at the coffee shop after the ride. Only one small complaint, they do tend to ride down after a while on the bike. I like them so much I also wear them when off the bike, they work great at my Tai Chi classes.

Best MTB shorts I have ever ridden in!

I absolutely love these shorts! Over the years finding a pair of shorts that fit well and move with me has been a challenge. I have tried many brands. Then one day I tried these on and immediately saw the difference. Today I got ride in them for the first time and will never go back to my old shorts. Going to buy a second pair now and then probably a third. Love them!
