If you're going to have one pair of shorts for mountain biking they need to be killer, work year round, and make you feel fast. But none of this should come at the expense of comfort, both on and off the bike, in the woods or in the cafe. This short prioritizes performance and comfort – not a shrink-and-pink exercise at all – it shares construction, materials, and features on par with our men’s shorts. It is purpose-built for serious riding.
"Kitsbow led the way in popularizing fitted, tailored-looking mountain bike shorts that abandon the board-short look of baggies past, so it’s no surprise that of all the new, un-baggy baggies in my drawer, the RG Short is my favorite."
The fabric is soft but durable, the silhouette is flattering fitting the body well and there's an added bonus of the hidden zipper pockets (on each side) opening to the back so that you never feel the stuff your carrying when you're hunched over in your attack position. These really are the best, most flattering baggies I've tried!
I love these shorts! They are amazing on the saddle, long days on the mountain bik, and they are stylish for the city, too. I bought them for future bikepacking trips because I was sick of mountain bike shorts that looked like bike shorts while sipping coffee during bike travel. These shorts blend in perfectly on and off the bike! They are comfortable, no chafing while riding. They are easy to clean, and with just enough stretch. He customer service is fantastic. Worth the price. I gave them 4 stars because they are short on my 6 foot tall body. I just want to alert the designers of the fact that they are made for shorter women. On me, the back scalloped knees go up really high up my thighs in the back; the shorts are much shorter on me than an averaged height woman. With that said, I still love them. That is my only suggestion, have a tall option, maybe? I'm 6 feet, 150lbs, with about 39" hips. I got the size 30, and besides the length, they fit wonderfully! Thanks Kitsbow, these may be te only shorts I'll ever need!
