A classic 5-pocket denim jean you can actually ride in. A cycling jean that doesn't scream "cycling jean" because of our subtle obsessive attention to detail. Original Cordura®-enriched denim makes for a jean that’s tougher than the rest, Our unique directional denim yoke and curved knee design allows complete freedom of movement. What does this mean to you? The Drifter goes with you anywhere you damn well please.
"The founding fathers of mountain biking all wore jeans (sometimes complete with knee pads) and wool shirts. While most modern mountain bikers now dress head to toe in lycra, California based mountain bike apparel brand Kitsbow wants to bring back a bit of that nostalgia with the Drifter Jean and Icon Shirt–classic pieces perhaps more appropriate now for the urban cyclist."
"The Drifter has classic five-pocket-jean styling with built-in, cycling-specific function. A four-piece curved waistband creates an ideal fit on the bike, as does a crescent-shaped seam around the knee for easy articulation while pedaling. A blend of 80 percent cotton, 17 percent Cordura nylon, and 3 percent Lycra is durable with a bit of built-in stretch for even more on-bike comfort. Reflective print on the inside of the left leg provides visibility after dark. High-end details such as an interior gusset and fully finished waistband should bring these jeans up to Kitsbow's mountain bike-gear standard."
"If you've ever tried to ride your bike in your favorite pair of jeans, you know how incredibly how uncomfortable that can be on your legs. Cycling apparel label Kitsbow is taking that problem into their own hands with their own jean and making a good pair of jeans is no easy task, let alone one designed for cycling."
"Part of an urban collection from Kitsbow, known for high-end bike wear, these “action” jeans actually work for just about any active pursuit. Classic 5-pocket design uses a cotton/cordura/lycra blend denim that is more durable with built-in stretch to improve mobility and comfort, an articulated knee adds comfort when pedaling, while a four piece curved waistband and interior gussets give more ergonomic fit."
