Chrome | Folsom Pants & Shorts

I have been wondering when we were gonna see these released. Chrome has dropped their new Folsom Pants and Shorts. I got my hands on a pair and they are very nice. Super comfy, great to ride in. I look forward to putting the Folsom pants through the ringer this year during my travels, stay tuned for updates as they wear in.

Inspired by workwear, we made the Folsom Short and Pant with durable, water-resistant, stretch material. We removed the seams from the crotch, added an extra layer of material, and bound the remaining seams for durability and riding comfort. Other functional details include 5-bar webbing u-lock holster, reflective rear tag, and double bartack reinforced belt loops.

First Impressions | Chrome Industries | Reflective Camo 2.0 Barrage

A couple days ago, Chrome sent me their new Reflective Camo 2.0 Barrage, to checkout and review. I have been commuting with it for the last few days and no real complaints (it needs at least one small pocket!!!). I’m gonna be putting this bag through it’s paces on some upcoming long rides and of course my daily commutes to and from work, mixed with some prommutes for good measure. Tonight will be the first weight challenge, I have a few pickups tonight (gear, parts and groceries) that will put this to the test. Stay tuned…

Chrome Industries | Reflective Camo 2.0

Chrome Industries is releasing Reflective Camo 2.0 series today for a few of their top bags. The Barrage, Citizen and Victor in super awesome Swedish M90 geometric camo & reflective rain camo.

Chrome’s second issue of Reflective Camo is an updated version of how Chrome does camo. For this edition, Chrome found a Swedish M90 geometric camo, and overlaid a rain camo print with a special glass bead finish, which reflects light from up to 100 feet. During the day, these bags appear as Swedish geometric “M90” camo and at night the appearance in light is a reflective rain camo. Developed in limited quantities, the Barrage, Citizen and Victor are available in our versatile Chrome Reflective Camo 2nd Issue.

Chrome_20: UPHILL SPRINTS from Chrome Industries on Vimeo.

This past Saturday, I helped my dude Edson throw an uphill sprint race in Elysian Park for the Chrome_20 pop up shop and our homie Kenny flew in for a hours to shoot this rad edit and give out some swag. Head to Head sprint racing til there was one victor, Anthony Z from GSS/ Unknown! So stoked for that yung buck, he beat some heaters to get that win, solid work. There’s still plenty more events coming out of the Chrome_20 pop up shop (alleycat this weekend and a closing race the weekend after this one), plus damn good deals on rad Chrome bags and gear until it closes on the 22nd!

Product Review | Chrome Ike Windshirt

I had completely spaced that I hadn’t done this review for Chrome last winter, when I got my hands on the Ike. It’s cold again and the Ike is back in rotation and there are new Ike colors out this season, so I thought I would post my thoughts on a great technical windshirt.
