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."
