Kitsbow is now accepting orders for the updated Haskell mountain bike shorts, which will be made to order in Kitsbow’s North Carolina manufacturing facility.
Unlike most clothing companies that choose to mass-produce each item in just a few size and color options, Kitsbow is doing things differently.
Going a step beyond 'Made in the USA,' Kitsbow is the only U.S. mountain bike apparel company to use so-called 'lean manufacturing,' making each item specifically for the customer.
The idea, Kitsbow says, is to eliminate the waste of unsold clothing and scraps and cut the need for overseas transportation while giving customers more flexibility in fit, size, and color combinations.
The Haskell short will be offered in 8- and 11-inch inseam options, a wide range of sizes, and three colors: Wild Oak, Dark Olive, and Dry Grey.
The Haskell shorts are available for pre-order on Kitsbow's website
for $195 USD. Orders will begin shipping August 2.
