Tsali Merino Cycling Short

$165.00
Color
The Tsali Merino Cycling Short is a no compromise merino cycling short that can be used either as a liner or as a stand alone piece for road, gravel, or trail riding. For this most crucial piece of kit, we made no compromises. 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 Merino wool. 

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.

Exceeded expectations!

Super comfy chamois that actually wicks moisture away instead of becoming a soggy, chafe inducing pad. The only things I wish were different are the waist and leg bands. I would love wider bands on both ends to make it the most comfortable chamois ever!

Great shorts

So nice to have shorts that don’t adhere to my skin when sweaty. Leg band is a bit odd...not snug. But once I was riding bike it was fine.

Kitsbow's Gift to Bikepackers

I bought these merino shorts specifically for bikepacking. After wearing them on a few trips, I can safely say that they are by far my favorite backcountry short! They were as soft after several days in the backcountry as they were on the first day. They maintained their shape and the fit is dialed. They were comfortable for HABs. They never smelled. I never felt too hot in them. Can't comment yet on how they'll hold up over several seasons, but they appear to be made to last. Thanks for making such a fantastic product!

The bests riding shorts - my search ends here.

I was skeptical at first mainly because of the price tag. Last year I purchased my first pair. Soon these were my "go to" shorts. This summer I purchased my second pair. i find Kitsbow runs a little small so I always size up (for shirts and chamois, socks are true to size - LOL). Even though they are merino wool they stay incredibly cool, the sweat pulls away from my body. I know live in SoCal so rides get pretty hot. Prior to this I was using these in the North Woods of Wisconsin and they kept me warm. I like that after a sweaty, long ride, I can comfortably stay in these post ride for stop at a local brewery or to grab a bite. Buy these - and you will want a second pair. My other chamois must feel jealous.
