Zen Cycling Liner

$125.00
We believe in the basics done right, and that a great short deserves a great liner. The Zen Cycling Liner is simply, an exceptionally well-built staple for cycling comfort.

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.
Made To Order, Less Waste™ simply means minimizing waste — by making only what is needed — and maximizing our flexibility to offer customers more choices, more colors, sizes and fits.

More choices, premium quality gear and the commitment of less waste, sounds pretty great, right? The trade-off is that it takes longer for us to make, but you get exactly what you want, and we never make apparel that isn’t wanted.

CRASH POLICY

Our crew often rides hard and we are here for you when things go awry. If you crash and trash your Kitsbow, get in touch with us.

If it can be repaired, we'll do that for a reasonable charge. If it can't be repaired (if you were really ripping it), we'll figure out a way to get you back on your bike wearing Kitsbow anyway. Just get in touch. The same policy applies to typical wear and tear: we'll repair it for a reasonable charge (if it can be repaired) or get you back into Kitsbow some other way if it cannot be repaired.

Zen Cycling Liner

The chamois and padding is decent. These runs pretty tight. I am normally between a large and XL, and the XL liner is super tight.

The perfect liner

I received two pairs of Zen Cyling Liners in early June and couldn't be happier with them. They occupy the sweet spot between flimsy liners (padded boxer-briefs, basically) and stand-alone roadie shorts. My previous favorite was any higher-end Peral Izumi short designed as a stand-alone, form-fitting roadie short. They are supportive and offer a good chamois. While they are designed as a stand-alone, they work well under an "overshort". The other type of liner shorts that I still have in my collection are from companies like Swobo, Sombrio, etc. These are the types of liners that are sold in tandem with a pair of overshorts- your typical $50 liner. There are form-fitting and function well enough for a shorter ride, but tend to offer less support, lower quality chamois, and do not work as a stand-alone. (eek!) What I like about the Zen Cycling Liners is that they are true liners, but could pass aesthetically (and perhaps functionally) as a stand-alone. The fabric is more robust than the typical liner short, but they are slightly lighter than a stand-alone roadie short. I like that they offer a *little* less compression than Pearl Izumi's high-end stuff, but are worlds better than a typical liner. And the chamois is amazing! They are comfortable and durable. They dry faster than older-style chamois and even fold in the middle, so these shorts will lie flat when folded. These are my go-to liners for any ride over 90 minutes. The price is also quite reasonable. I plan to replace my entire collection with Kitsbow Liner shorts as the others wear out.

Good fit and comfy.

So far so good. Used them a couple times on rides over 30 miles (mountain bike). Using them under a shell and works great. Padding is perfect. I’m 6’ and 180 and the large fits great.

Zen liner shorts

Great shorts. Could be 1 in longer in the leg.
