Featuring a tailored silohuette 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.

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.
The Devil Is In the Details
With an elasticated waist and zip fly, the Falmouth Shorts run close but remain flattering. An anti-microbial Polygiene liner and the relaxed through the hips fit combine to create the perfect balance of performance and style. They're fast enough for racing, long enough to walk into the coffee shop without feeling self-conscious.
Lighten Up, Eliot
The 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 mobility and comfort of our Longfellow Shorts, while reducing the weight for warmer temperatures. The technical integrity of the fabric remains: the shell is water-repellent and breathable with four-way stretch.
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.
We've tested the Falmouth's on some classic running routes. Marathoner Henry Sterling put them to the test on Camp Verde's "Barking Dog Loop" in Arizona. Mick Iacofano took them for a spin 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.
