Like the title says… These shorts are outstanding. Well constructed with the biker in mind, comfortable, breathable, and just generally of that great Kitsbow quality.
Very nice. Rode with Zen liner... game changer for me.
These are my favorite cycling shorts ever!
Wow! I can't say much more than the many other glowing user reviews. I own many, many Kitsbow pieces, including the A/M Shorts and the Haskel. Each of these are amazing pieces and, upon purchasing them, I shelved every other pair of mountain biking shorts I own. With The Masterlink Shorts added to my arsenal, I fear my A/M Shorts will become neglected. They run slightly bigger than the A/M shorts and the cut is less of a tailored fit than the A/M. This allows the accommodation of bib shorts and makes for a more casual look off the bike. The construction and materials are strong and stretchy. The waist adjustability mechanism is upgraded from the A/M. Finally, the magnetic closure the icing on the cake...its utility is brilliant and unique! Cheers Kitsbow!
Finally back in stock! Super happy to see Kitsbow adding this staple back to their line. The Haskels just weren’t quite dedicated bike shorts enough for me. They are fitted but I have found that waist-wise I’m actually a Small vs a Med (most shorts), hence my slightly large rating. I hate when shorts loosen up after wearing for a bit/breakin.
