Endura Zyme 3/4 Pants $0.00
Endura hails from Great Britain, and let's face it: the British version of a warm summer day is wet, overcast and temperatures soaring to 65 degrees. This type of climate begs for the 3/4 pant. The length provides additional protection and warmth for your hard working knees over shorts yet is not as constraining or hot as pants.
The Endura Zyme 3/4 Pants hews strongly to the casual end of the riding spectrum. Not that you can't get all edge in them, dabbling in the vertical with your nose down and ass way up in the air, but that the vibe is definitely on the easy-going tip. To start with, there's the look. From afar, they could be made from cotton duck. It's actually pre-washed easy-care nylon. The slim side pockets and slim thigh pockets seem to be from a cargo-pant design of yore. So the styling and construction is plenty technical to keep you cool and comfortable when hammering through the singletrack but casual enough to not look out of place when pedaling to the cafe for a pre/post ride espresso.
What makes this a riding pant is the articulated knee -- you know it won't chafe or slow you down when you're pedaling. There's a double-layer seat for durability and twin-needling to make sure the pant stands for bountiful abuse. There are two side tabs for adjusting the waistband. The interior of the band has mounts for Endura's Clickfast liner short.
The color of the Endura Zyme 3/4 pants is Camo. Available sizes start at Small and run through XXL.

What community has to say
Works for me.
Good shorts. Mine actually have belt loops(go figure). So, I don't think I'm going to have problems with the snap button since I can use a belt, if I get fat around the belly. Fits me well and the key holder in the pocket is very useful. I don't have to fumble for my keys. Got this for a good price too.
Belt loops solve everything...
Great shorts. Fabric is brushed and comfy and mine do have belt loops. 34" waist 5'11" and the large is a perfect fit! I do run a web belt because that snap is just weak but whatevs. Great deal and great quality. I have run these commuting and singletrack in Colorado Springs for fall/early winter. So far, so good!
great short, needs work though
I love the shorts, well made fit well. I use them for singletrack, dj and urban and they work BUT..... the stupid waist snap keeps coming undone. They aren't tight either, I got them so that they are loose without the cinch straps but when I tighten them down they fit perfect-----basically when your in biking position even when the shorts are so loose they are sliding off of you the snap comes undone. I like the shorts enough I think I'll stick a different snap in there or something but it is very annoying.
zymes killing it on an impromptu night ride
The bike shorts are well made and were actually pretty comfortable but the length of the shorts did not fit me too well. I am 5'7" and ordered the Small size. I returned them b/c they felt too baggy and long. Otherwise the shorts would be great for riding, the material was durable and it felt thick. I have purchased the Endura Zyme shorts and are the same exact material which I would highly recommend.
Could be Much better
I can't recommend these, unless you like the feeling of wearing cut off jeans, meaning the fabric has no give, the fit is snug in the hip/upper thigh, and it just doesn't move with the rider. They could be designed better, more anatomical. The velcro cuffs are an afterthought, there isn't nearly enough of it to snug them around the calves.
For now I'll stick to Ex Officio Amphi pants rolled up as my knickers. These are not intended for cycling, but their cut is perfect for it as the pleats in the front offer plenty of freedom for the legs, unlike the Zyme.
I really love these. The best part for me is the fit. I wear a 35-36" waist and the Large size fits almost perfectly.
The fabric is pretty heavy, and very heavy duty and bomb proof. Not for every climate, but Nor-Cal climates suit these for most of the year.
Unlike the review below states, they do have belt loops and waist cinches(along with a sort of stretchy back of the waist). A belt is almost necessary even if you don't need it to keep them up, due to the single snap on the waist opening. It comes unsnapped every time I lean over to put some pedal into my ride.
The length is great (IMHO) and I like the easy velcro tabs at the cuff.
There is good room for most thigh sizes (unless you are Hulk sized), and if you ride with a liner short, they shouldn't bunch up at all.
Overall, these are my new favorite piece of clothing, and I wear them for riding and kicking around. Great price too, get some while you can.
What is the waist size/range for the Small...
What is the waist size/range for the Small sized short?
I would say about a 29-32 waist, probably even up to 33".
Let me be clear in saying I don't wear these if I'm going to seriously hit the trails. They're perfect for the ride to work/school/bar, great for a quick trail hit afterwards, jim-dandy a for session at the jumps/pump track, and I love 'em for daily wearing. They fit me great, a little baggier than the humvee or singletrack. They're made of nylon but it's been brushed really heavy so it feels like light canvas. I don't carry a lot in my pockets, so the lack of belt loops doesn't bother me, and the adjustable tabs hold them up just fine.
I normally wear 35-36 inch pants and the large fits great.
Cool looks, bad fit
These are very cool looking MTB shorts there are some nice design features such as the pockets that zip up, a key clip in the pocket and non cotton material awesome.
The sizing is way off or at least I thought so at first. I went up one size which did fit better, but it really is the cut of the shorts. They are tight in the thighs and leave very little room in the ass. With no belt loops these shorts tend to ride really low once you get moving no matter how much you sinch the waist and they are still tight in the thighs.
If you are a bigger guy or muscular in the legs these might not be for you.
Write your questiAre these shorts padded...

no belt loops
I assumed Zyme 3/4 shorts were a longer version of Zyme shorts...Not So. Zyme 3/4 has much larger waist. That would be OK. But no belt loops?
You got to be kidding!...
Love the fabric. Much better design than Humvees. I'm thinking........but don't know what I'd improve.
