Our Free Solo shorts take technical crossover garments to the next level. Fabric is everything in this game and we use the best. Not some of the best. THE BEST. Period. We are not kidding. This stuff is incredible. 4-Way stretch for comfort when you are on the move. Abrasion resistance for durability and true on the bike reliability. Water and stain resistance to help fight the elements. And beautifully textured yarns that hold their color and shape no matter what you do to them. The features go on and on. These truly are the ultimate technical crossover shorts. The Free Solos share a similar fit to our award-winning waxed-cotton Field Shorts, which have been a staple in our line for years. The difference in the 2 shorts is the full-synthetic ultra-performance fabric in the Free-Solos giving them a much more technical feel. We also swapped out the cotton pocket bags for a perforated performance mesh in the solos that is silky soft, has stretch to move with you, and looks straight awesome. We spend more on our pocket bags than most do on their entire short. True story. You'll understand when you get your hands on them. The Free Solos are definitely built for riding. Built for living. And built to last. We understand they are not cheap. But they are not cheaply made. And they will outlast and outperform anything in their class by a longshot. From a sustainability standpoint, they will definitely not be seeing the landfill any time soon. These are as good as they get. We stand behind them 100%.
