Chrome Industries


These shorts from Chrome Industries look and feel sooo nice and premium!

The quality of fabric and attention to detail in the shorts is amazing, I can’t comment on the longevity of the shorts only having them less than a month but if the reviews on their website are anything to go by they will last a heck of a long time:

“I slide on my hip while crashing my bike when I was wearing these. They barely received a scratch.”

“Fabric is durable and maintains it’s stretchy qualities. Great protection while MTN biking, have hit the ground a few times and never ripped.”

“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.”

I have to admit, even though I really really like these shorts the only downside is the pockets as mentioned in the last review because you are slightly worried about putting items in your pocket that they would fall out especially if it’s your phone, wallet or keys.

In summary, these shorts are worth buying, yes they are on the higher price point for shorts however you get the premium quality material, feel, performance and last that makes them a worthy investment.

Further Info

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.
