Chrome Artist Series: NOA Yalta.

Posted by: kris

The compact Yalta has become a staple for the grab and go roll tops from Chrome. They recently enlisted the help of graffiti artist NOA to give the bag a facelift for a new Artist Series run. All eight of the super limited bags were cut from a single canvas inspired by the Japanese phrase meaning “Black Fog”. Pretty damn cool if you ask me! Promo video below and you can swoop one of the few of these right here.

Tested: Chrome Folsom Pants.

Posted by: kris

Beyond 3M reflective inks and cooling vents you have perhaps the most crucial bit of cycling apparel…bottoms. Chrome has been adding all sorts of ride inspired gear to their soft goods as of late but nothing as cool as the Folsom. They went beyond making their new pants (and shorts) look like they belong on a bike to making them FEEL like they’re meant for the saddle…click through for the breakdown.

#messlife: Clean Your Bag.

Posted by: kris

When you use the same bag day in and out it can get a little cluttered. Decided to clean out my bag a couple days bag emptying both the stuff I carry every day and all the rand shit that sunk to the bottom. I was pulling everything from sea shells to bottle caps out from the dark corners of my Chrome Warsaw. An old package of hot chocolate (unopened) was probably the most random find…I should do this more often.
