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
  • Imported (Vietnam)

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."

Love the Origin Shorts

I wore these kicking around the house several days in a row after receiving them. They are very comfortable. On the bike they are perfect. Highly recommend.

Great short, even better customer service

I'm 35" waist so I got the XL. I loved the short but after wearing them for a couple of weeks, I started thinking that they were too loose. I called Kitsbow and they sent me a pair in large. Turned out XL was the right size for me so I sent the large back. I'm a Kitsbow customer for life.

Love these shorts so much I own two!

This is the second pair of technical shorts. The first pair is an older version - with one set of pockets. This new pair has two set of pockets - and it is perfect for long days in the saddle. Specifically, the cut of the origin short doesn't get caught up on the saddle. It is a tailored athletic cut. However, when the size is right - the fit is really good. This is my go to short for riding and even going to the gym. The fabric is a stiffer strong fabric that takes solid hits well. The fabric is not bullet proof - but close. I love these shorts.

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.
