Form Meets Function

Named after the location of our first office in San Francisco, we designed these shorts in SF to work on the bike and off. A slimmer, shorter alternative to our legendary Union Shorts, we made the Folsom Shorts with a durable, water resistant Everest 4-way stretch material for comfort on the bike. With a reinforced crotch, seams and belt loops, an added u-lock holster and floating rear pockets to make the saddle more comfortable the Folsom Shorts are tricked out for crushing the streets (and hills) of our native San Francisco and anywhere else your bike takes you.

    i got a pair a few years ago and now i own three, just so that i don't have to wear any other shorts. these are fantastic. i've used them for everything from road biking to swimming to hiking/backpacking to mountain biking (they're actually a great dirt jumping short. they're just long enough that you can wear with kneepads, and good luck trying to tear the fabric.) i've crashed many bicycles in these shorts and road, dirt, whatever they'll hold up to anything, the fit and look is fantastic too. they even dry quickly.

    if you work at a bike shop, a black pair of these is the last pair of shorts you'll ever need. if they ever look dirty, just keep wearing them, they'll wear themselves clean. you'll look good and be ready for any spontaneous rides in any conditions/weather.

    If you read the description you know what you're getting, slim and short. Not every cyclist has the thighs of a german track sprinter. But maybe sizing is a tad on the tight side. I'm usually a 31" waist and the folsom in 32" is snug at the waist. Every other 32" item I try on usually is pretty roomy. Length is perfect just above the knee on a guy with a 30" inseam. Good quality.

    What doesn't work for me are the pockets. Pockets are too shallow and have no type of closure. I'd put money on losing something out of these pockets eventually. You'd think pocket depth or need for closure is something that would've been sorted out on a product as mature as cycling specific shorts.

      Comments about Folsom Short:

      Shorts are so great that this is my 4th pair. Hoping the blue ones come back soon as I missed out on them where they were out.

      • Feels half size too small

      Best shorts for any cyclist

      These are the best shorts i've ever owned. Anyone who rides frequently knows bike seats real havoc on denim. These are built to last.

      slim, order a size up for sure

      just got these on sale and they weren't kidding about ordering a size up. i'm a chubby 32 and it's nearly impossible to squeeze into them. they also ride a little shorter than just above the knee.
