Connector Merino Cycling Knicker

We know riders who use our base short to provide a state-of-the-art chamois, in just the right place, while using one of our shorts for ruggedness, pockets, and riding functionality. This knicker-length base short provides all of the benefits and technology of our proven base layer, but protects and warms your knees as well.

When we designed this knicker, we went back to the drawing board. It wasn't enough to just cover your knees --any knicker can do that. So we added some features we think fit the cyclists menu: with articulated joints, abrasion protection and no-slip grips around your leg.

This knicker provides the first of its kind --compression support via wool-- enhancing the ride and recovery processes.

Bike Mag's review of the Knicker

"After they broke in, I didn’t want to take them off. By the time we got to our resupply box, where I had a fresh pair of shorts and Kitsbow wool knee warmers, I was loving them so much I wasn’t about to risk messing around with warmers. Even a man who lives on the edge has his limits."

Warm!

I wore these in Sicily on Mt Etna (active volcano) and it rained and snowed on us! Having something warm like this when wet was priceless! They fit great and I appreciated the subtle hits of Kitsbow graphics around the base so they looked a bit cooler than my roadie stuff.

Nice quality, problematic fit.

Seem well made but the fit for me is off. I'm a 33 waist but tall (6'0) and went with the large. The waist is a little lose but the legs aren't long enough for them to set mid-calf, which appears the intention of the design. This means they set right below the knee and the cuff is not tight so they rub and cause sore spots which is a pain on rides longer than 50 miles--which is exactly what I got them for. They still get used but not for multi-day backpacking or epic gravel rides for which I thought they would be perfect.

It's not you, it's me

I love the design. It feels warm and supportive, and very comfortable to sit in the saddle in, but I think I'm too tall and skinny. I'm 6' 0" and 150 lb. With a 30" waist, I got a small, but they are too short on my legs. The elastic keeps riding up to my knees. I think if I went with a larger size they would be too loose and ride up. They aren't too uncomfortable even around the knee, but I wish they would stay lower on my leg.

Item was too small.

Item ordered was a large, but the fit was comparable to other items sized as medium. I was unable to wear and have returned for refund.
