Meet the Falmouth, a versatile short for hard training or whatever your day brings. Featuring a tailored silhouette and constructed from one of the most technical fabrics in running: a lightweight moisture-wicking, four-way stretch, water-repellent nylon blend, we call Eliot Stretch Light. Pick your preference in a 6" or 7” silhouette.
With an elasticated waist and zip fly, the Falmouth Shorts run close but remain flattering. An antimicrobial Polygiene liner and 6" or 7” inseam create the perfect balance of performance and style – fast enough for racing, long enough to walk into the coffee shop without feeling self-conscious.
The Bluesign-Certified Eliot Stretch Light fabric used in the Falmouth Shorts builds on the unparalleled technical success of our Eliot Stretch fabric. Eliot Stretch Light retains all of the stretch and comfort of our longstanding Longfellow Shorts, while removing weight and bulk. It sheds water and dries in a snap, too.
True to its intention as a versatile short for everyday wear, the Falmouth features two hand pockets at the hip and a zippered internal pocket for storing valuables on the run.
Eliot Stretch Light Shell: 90% Nylon / 10% Elastane Softshell, 110gm/m²
Liner: 89% Polyester / 11% spandex With A Polygiene Finish

When Roger Bannister first broke the four minute mile in 1954 he did so wearing shorts a good deal longer than the racing shorts we see today. While the majesty of his achievement has inspired millions, it was his dignified dress that made us look again at that longer inseam and waistband construction, updating the material to make a staple garment for the modern runner.
We asked 2:13 marathoner Mick Iacofano to put the Falmouths to the test over a 13 mile run on Boulder’s infamous Magnolia Road. He showed us how it’s done, laying down 6 minute miles on Mag's challenging rollers.
