You know when you’ve reached your threshold, and need to keep your knees covered throughout the ride -- knee warmers will simply be left on, so why not have the security of coverage that won’t slip down. We’ve ensured that you have the best chamois available for long-ride comfort. The fabric itself is thoughtful and technical, so you can worry about the riding not the fit or the wicking.
The Coleman Valley Knicker length provides the same long ride support that the Coleman Valley shorts provide, while supporting the rider in cooler weather. If you are a committed user of bibs, and need the all-ride security of knee warmth, this is your gear. Usable under all Kitsbow shorts.
This is a great fall/spring bib short. They have been great in mild conditions (~mid 40F - ~50F), beyond those temperature, I’d not want a kicker. The fabric is great and is a snug fit. I have take a few spills in them on grass and dirt (i.e. cyclocross) and they continue to look new. I am 5’ 9” with athletic legs and wear a size large. Overall, great product and recommend.
I’m 6’2” 198 lbs so I ordered an XL, but had to return for a XXL because knickers run small. The bib short are perfect in XL for Me. The pads in the bib shorts & knickers are excellent, above any other bibs I have ever owned. I will be buying more on top on the three pair I already have!!
Went on a ride with the size medium. Material bunched up behind my knees and was uncomfortable. Chamois and materials were very nice and seemed very high quality. Maybe I had a weird experience but I ended up returning product. Wanted to like it more than I did and for price I hoped that these would be perfect. Thanks to Kitsbow for amazing customer service!
The Coleman Valley knicker exceeded my expectations all around upon arrival. The compressive material is very comfortable and the chamois is absolutely excellent. I wore these alone in temps around 40 degrees and a few days later under riding pants in the mid 20’s....great experience both times. Will definitely be buying the bib to wear once the weather here in MI gets a lil warmer. Kitsbow simply does it again, although I can’t say I’m surprised......been very happy with every piece of Kitsbow gear I own!
The bib is wonderful though it runs a bit smaller then the regular Coleman Valley bib. This has resulted in some bunching around the knees.
