Purposely Designed Cycling Apparel Made Just For You.

Our apparel is made to order – and not in bulk – which is highly sustainable and produces significantly less waste. How we impact the planet and places we love guides our approach – everything from how our apparel is sourced and constructed, to how it gets to you.

We are on a Mission
Bringing Manufacturing Back to the US

Join Kitsbow as we gear up for expansion in 2023.

We invite YOU to become an investor in Kitsbow Cycling Apparel via our crowdfunding finance round with Wefunder


We are the only outdoor apparel company using lean manufacturing in the US: which for Kitsbow simply means that each garment is made when you’re ready to buy it perfecting the making process with each order.

What others say about us

If finding a great (not just good) fit and investing in quality, durable, comfortable bike shorts are at the top of your list, definitely consider the Madrone Shorts.

— Bike Packing

They are expensive, but [the Mescal’s] quality construction, attention to detail, and high performance design can’t be beat.

— Outdoor Gear Lab

The Kitsbow Icon is the best flannel ever made, and you’ll use it so many times that the price tag won’t even matter after a few weeks.

36 Hours in Kitsbow

At Kitsbow we strive to fit it all in; work, family, and fun. But when it feels like adventure is something others do, it's time to hit pause and get after the journey. Escape and adventure is just outside our door. The key is to go. Busyness can trap us and keep us from necessary escape. But, 36, that’s doable!

This is best-fitting denim shirt you’ll ever own, equally comfortable in an upscale bistro, out on the back porch on a moonlit night, or riding your bike to visit a friend.
