Kitsbow A/M Ventilated Short

Kitsbow's A/M Ventilated Shorts are a terrific hot weather option for commuters or everyday riders who don't enjoy looking like spandex-clad superheroes. Constructed with fabric that's light, soft, and water-resistant, the short features a laser-cut fly for a slim, stitch-free appearance and a tailored fit that won't snag your saddle, flap in the wind, brush the backs of your calves when your knees bend. The waistband is raised in the back and lowered on the sides to provide complete coverage while riding, and alloy slip hooks provide an inch of adjustability on either side of the short. But as its name suggests, the A/M Ventilation Short is all about keeping you cool with mesh paneling in the front, waist, and sides of the short for better airflow and moisture evaporation. Laser-cut perforations on the back of the short are designed to interface with the mesh panel on Kitsbow's Ventilated Base Short ($160), a necessary addition for riders looking for extra support and padding.
