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 San Francisco and anywhere else your bike takes you.

Everest Fabric

Built to stretch with you when you're getting yourself into - or out of - all kinds of trouble. Everest fabric blocks wind and repels water to keep weather and chill out. The lightweight, wrinkle-resistant fabric is ideal for getting rad and looking fresh while you do. Built to stretch with you when you're getting yourself into - or out of - all kinds of trouble.

Feature

Five Bar Webbing U-Lock Holster Five Bar Webbing U-Lock Holster

Built with the same tough-as-nails five bar seatbelt webbing that we use on our buckle bags, the u-lock holster stays low profile when not in use and can take a lot of abuse.

    These are great looking, very comfy and clearly VERY well-made shorts. I mean, they appear pretty bomb-proof. I wear them for commuting, gravel/adventure riding, casual wear, and occasionally mountain biking. The only shortcoming is, at this price point, I think there should be at least one pocket that is secured somehow--zipper, velcro, anything. If just one of the rear pockets had a zipper for example, I'd feel safer with my wallet back there commuting. And, these rear pockets are a pickpocket's dream - the openings are quite loose. Great shorts but as I say, for this price there should be at least one secure pocket of some kind.

    Comments about Folsom Short 2.0:

    now that the shorts are being made more true-to size, they fit much better than before. it's well constructed and has a lot of useful features, such as the lock loop, the pockets on lower leg, and hearty construction.

      Comments about Chrome Folsom Short 2.0:

      I can wear these shorts everyday.
      I have a couple colors now just to avoid people thinking I'm dirty.
      They don't need to be washed all them time and the fit stays the same plus they don't get stinky. I'm interested to see how long they last because I wear them all the time and they don't show signs of wearing down. Perfect length.

      Comments about Folsom Short 2.0:

      Great pair of biking shorts. It was very hard to discern from the website copy -- if there is a chamois or padding inside these shorts. They are excellent, but any serious biking activity on anything but a retro cruiser requires a chamois. Why isn't there one here -- or at least an optional insert? Does no one but me think biking without a chamois is like biking without pants on? Easy enough to get a pair of liners and make these work, and then I give it thumbs up. But conditionally so.
