Where passion meets progression: the Origin.

A well-designed mountain biking short, much like a well-designed trail, is born from a combination of passion and progression. The Origin short is the culmination of everything we’ve learned from five years of making uncompromising gear for real riders. We chose a unique Nylon woven fabric for its balance of breathability and durability, strategically placed pockets for riding position, and a ladder-locking adjustable waistband to dial in fit. Start with the Origin.






BENEFITS

  • Breathable, durable woven Nylon
  • 4 Secure Pockets with signature rear placement for optimal carry positioning
  • Mesh lined waist band for optimal sweat dispersion
  • Gusset construction, RiRi slider snap, 2-needle cover stitch for strength and durability, mesh pockets, ladder locking adjustable waistband

bermstyle review of kitsbow Origin AM Short

"The new Kitsbow Origin A/M short joined the ranks of favorites, thanks to a well thought out approach to the category, with a trim, fitted profile that shows a lot of attention was paid to the little things. But also importantly: pockets."

gear patrol's review of kitsbow Origin AM Short

"When it comes to minimal, well-designed, tonal mountain bike clothing, one brand stands out above the rest: Kitsbow. The Petaluma, CA based brand is making some of the best mountain bike clothing on the market. Pieces like the Origin A/M short and the Trials Softshell waterproof jacket epitomize thoughtful design and have become staples in my mountain bike kit."

Absolutely Perfect!

These are new go-to shorts, and perfect for the cooler temperatures. The fit is the perfect difference between supple and baggies. The adjustable waist works great and easily regulated mid-ride. The material weight is a bit too think for summer, but ideal for fall and early winter. Nice pocket placement and large enough for the essentials.

Great shorts

Great tailored shorts, fit is true to size. Not sure why a lot of the reviews are 5’9” guys wearing mediums, I bought a medium and they were pretty baggy, if you want a baggy short size up. I had to return for a small, I’m 5’10” ~160lbs and the small fits good, my only complaint is the elastic band on the sides wants to keep tightening down instead of staying open. Didn’t notice that problem with the size mediums. The material is very durable and cleans easy, overall I would recommend these shorts, well made and a good tailored fit.

Great short for cooler weather

Fantastic, comfortable short for cooler temps! The only issue I have with them is that they are not sized like the original Origin shorts I own. I ordered a small thinking they would fit the same and they don't. No worries though, they still fit well- just a little snug. Overall a great, comfortable short for long days and nights in the saddle!

Worth it

I own an old version of these shorts (pre-adjustable waisband) that I've abused for several years now. They're spectacular. Exceptionally comfortable, exceptional fit, great in the heat, zero-saddle snags, perfect pockets. And, absurdly, they could still pass for new. I remember being a little embarrassed, honestly, about spending so much for a pair of mtb shorts when I bought these. But, in hindsight, splurging on these turned out to be a terrific value. Go figure.
