Zen Cycling Liner
Spec'd with a highly comfortable Cytech® chamois pad, the breathable compression fabric supports comfortably, minimizing fatigue.
Designed to be worn as a liner, or alone as a short.
- Lightweight nylon compression fabric provides exceptional compression, wicking, durability, and breathability.
- Effectively moves moisture to the outside of the fabric and spreads out on the surface for rapid evaporation – the feel is almost cooling to the touch (that's the really cool part – how it feels!)
- 30% spandex provides high power compression to support leg muscles
- UPF 50 sun protection
- Industry-leading Cytech® pad for all-day comfort
- Sewn in the USA (Old Fort, NC)

Great shorts. Could be 1 in longer in the leg.
Here is my cycling arc...I am too cool for padded shorts, too cool for "lycra." Ok, maybe cycling shorts are acceptable for longer rides. Bibshorts are a solid idea for road riding. I will wear my bibshorts on mountain rides. Bibshorts are overkill for the mountain. I don't need a chamois on the mountain. My butt hurts. What do I do? I look to my favorite and most trusted cycling apparel brand to deliver the best, balance mountain cycling liner I have known to date. The Zen Cycling Liner checks every box. The compression is spot-on. The chamois is balanced, not to thick, not to thin and supports in all the right places. In all respects, this is a mountain liner, built for in and out of the saddle efforts. It is not too bulky and fits under any Kitsbow shorts nicely. It is perfect for a 1 hour spin or a 7 hour epic adventure. The chamois is not the same as the Coleman but I believe it is the same manufacturer and this one is much more mountain specific. Once again, Kitsbow knocked it out of the park! Cheers Kitsbow!
The chamois in these liners is fantastic! The height of the backside of the short itself provides perfect coverage when sitting.
I have worn these almost every day since purchase. They are awesome, stay in place, dry quickly, just enough padding without feeling like a soggy diaper at the end of a ride, and very well made. I am a tried and true Medium in everything but sized up based on other reviews. I didn't want my thunder thighs to feel like sausage casings. I am going to order another pair in Medium, as the large is just too big...rides up too high, have to pull them up/etc. I'm 5'8" and 175 pounds. I'll keep these for when I chunk up or as a spare pair, but I'm looking forward to the perfect fit of the mediums. Overall five star. The quick drying non obtrusive pad is the selling point for me. Easily 5x better than shorts I paid 3x less for.
These are the best cycling shorts I’ve worn. Excellent compression, padding and looks.
