The Folsom Shorts from Chrome are a slimmer, shorter alternative to Chrome's legendary Union Shorts. The Folsom Shorts are made with a durable, water resistant Everest 4-way stretch material for exceptional on the bike comfort and feature a seamless gusseted double layer crotch to prevent cycling related wear. All seams are 3-needle reinforced flat felled to improve durability and prevent chaffing and the same goes for the floating rear pockets with flat seam openings, providing hours of on the saddle comfort. Additional extras include a 5-bar webbing u-lock holster and a reflective rear patch for visibility while riding in low light. Whether you're an urban cyclist, suburban commuter, or just someone looking for a pair of riding shorts with a nod to everyday fashion, the Chrome Folsom shorts are a versatile pair that will fit the bill for many rides to come.
6-panel, 4 pocket design
Full-length seamless double layer crotch for on-the-bike comfort
Water resistant, durable 4-way stretch Everest fabric for fit and movement
I have four pairs of the Unions short. Love, love, LOVE them. Wear them on the bike, off the bike, and to bed sometimes. Wear them till the butt wears out...which takes forever. I was SO excited to find a short that I thought would be similar to the Union short but with a shorter length in the leg. This is NOT the Union short. The material is very different. Heavier, not even close to as stretchy and way less breathable. The primary thing that sets the Union short apart is the material is super comfortable even in really hot conditions. This material is not. I have too many rides in these shorts to return them now because I wanted to give them a chance but it's just not the same at all. The fit isn't as good and the material is hot, unbreathable and restrictive of movement. Sorry Chome. Normally love your stuff but these shorts are not up to your normal very high standards.
I've yet to purchase a chrome product that didn't please me, and these shorts are no different. They fit well for cycling (Not too loose. Stops above the knee), are built very durable, and are still comfortable to wear all day even off the bike. Wear a liner under them and they work perfectly for all day riding when you don't want to wear obvious cycling kit. I plan to buy a second pair.
PROS: Durable, Comfortable, Stylish
BEST USES: Mountain biking, Road biking, Commuting
Great Shorts! They have a more athletic cut than the Union shorts but maintain the aesthetic. These shorts are very comfortable and i wear them both on and off the bike. Just thrown on a liner when you want to ride. They can be a little warm in hot weather but they arent meant to be super vented so I wasn't expecting them to be really breathable. Ive had them for about a season now and they hold up to heavy use. Very durable.
PROS: Good Fit, Comfortable, Good Pockets, Durable
BEST USES: Long Rides, Mountain Biking, Road Biking, Commuting
