Tsali Cycling Short

The Tsali Cycling Short is a no compromise cycling short that can be used either as a liner or as a stand alone piece for road, gravel, or trail riding. We used high-performance fabrics, a top of the line multi-density chamois made in Italy, and meticulous construction to create a premium short, optimized to enjoy long days in the saddle with the benefits of a lightweight compression fabric. 

Made To Order, Less Waste™ simply means minimizing waste — by making only what is needed — and maximizing our flexibility to offer customers more choices, more colors, sizes and fits.

More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

    Our crew often rides hard and we are here for you when things go awry. If you crash and trash your Kitsbow, get in touch with us.

    If it can be repaired, we'll do that for a reasonable charge. If it can't be repaired (if you were really ripping it), we'll figure out a way to get you back on your bike wearing Kitsbow anyway. Just get in touch. The same policy applies to typical wear and tear: we'll repair it for a reasonable charge (if it can be repaired) or get you back into Kitsbow some other way if it cannot be repaired.

    Tsali cycling shorts

    Love the attention to detail! These are the best cycling shorts I have seen. They fit perfectly and the padding is just right. The best part is they are made in America!

    Tsali short

    Great short, very comfortable, however I wish it was a couple inches longer. Too short for my 70 year old legs.

    These shorts don’t budge!

    I love these shorts. They don’t move at all while riding. No readjusting necessary. Chamois is the perfect thickness.

    Tsali for the win!

    I love these shorts. I tend to have a hard time with shorts staying in place and the Tsali short fits like a glove! I'm so impressed with everything about these shorts. The material is top-notch and the fit feels like the shorts are a part of you. If you're looking for a cycling short that gives you the comfort of being tucked in bibs, without actually having to be tucked in a pair of bibs, look no more - you've finally found what you're looking for.

    Kitsbow high quality

    I love the sturdy and compressive fabric, and the grip on the edge of the waist and legs keep everything in place. The chamois is high quality. The fit did not work great for me unfortunately because I have a long torso and a high waist. But if you have short waist, they will fit great. The legs run a touch shorter than most chamois shorts.
