Kitsbow is by riders for riders, founded to create the riding apparel we couldn’t find: A perfect balance of technical performance, timeless design, and impeccable tailoring. We’re proud to offer craftsmanship that keeps you comfortable in all conditions, from trail to town.
Our quality standards are near impossible, but our mission is simple: Create unrivaled gear made with the best materials available. Then keep making it better.
Kitsbow was established in Sonoma County, California in 2012 by a team of dedicated mountain bikers and apparel industry veterans. Because our designers have logged years in the saddle, each detail is obsessively considered. Every element — down to zippers and reflective piping — is vetted for quality, style, and durability.
Our search for innovative materials has taken us around the world and into the houses of some of the most storied technical fabric mills around. We partner with Polartec to create performance layers for all riding conditions. Our specialty fabrics are sourced from the U.S., Italy, Japan, and beyond. Much of our wool is sustainably-sourced from Australia and New Zealand, and our top of the line wovens come from our friends at Schoeller in Switzerland. We are always on the lookout for materials of the highest quality, and will go the distance to bring them to you.
We believe that if apparel isn’t tailored, it’s sloppy. The entire Kitsbow line is cut for the cyclist’s form, on and off the bike. This lens informs our exclusive improvements, including: articulated shaping on all long sleeves, forward-cut armholes, pitched contouring on our performance shorts to lessen resistance during pedaling, and our uniquely carved hem which reduces contact with the calves and keeps things from falling out of back pockets.
Our pursuit of perfection is never ending. Even when we’re on the trail, we’re working out new techniques, collaborations, and features to enhance your ride and extend your season.
