Item # ZOI000Z

Like riding on air.

As wearers of many cycling caps, we have learned to appreciate pieces of cycling kit that don't paint themselves into corners with overly specific use restrictions. The folks at ZOIC must know us, because their Ether Camo Shorts move freely with us between cycling disciplines and demands. Or maybe we're just not as unique as we've always thought, and these shorts fulfill many roles that almost all cyclists can appreciate. If that's the case, then they'll probably be a prized article of clothing for you, too.

The Ethers are made from a blend of materials that wick, ventilate, and stretch to ensure all-day comfort. ZOIC's Fusion Gusset construction gives your inseam the power of stretchy fabric to keep your movement unrestricted and prevent seat hang-ups, eliminating what may be the two biggest reasons for wearing tight shorts on the trail. Bits of strategically place mesh run throughout the shorts to keep you well ventilated. The shorts offer an unconventional amount of storage for bike shorts: two front hand pockets, two zippered pockets on the legs, and one final zippered pocket on the rear. They also have a headphone cable port for all of your jamming needs.

The Ethers also include a detachable IPL Essential Liner, which incorporates a ZO-Tech chamois and makes every pair of shorts in your wardrobe into potential bike shorts. Just pull the liner out of the Ethers, slip it on, and choose which shorts are getting the "bike" prefix for the day.

The ZOIC Ether Camo Shorts - Men's are available in six sizes ranging from Small to XXX-Large in the colors Green Camo and Grey Camo.

Unanswered Question

the chamois looks pretty non existent on these offer much protection or is it assumed you will add you own riding shorts under these?

Sweet shorts!

I have two pairs of these. They are great shorts. They fit well, breath well, and are durable. I have ridden in 100 plus degree heat and they worked well. I liked my first pair so much I got another in the camo and they look cool!

Like them.

I ride daily as a commuter. I didn't own any bike shorts, these were my first. They make my ride more comfortable. I tend to keep my bike clothes on when I get busy, and these look good. I liked the velcro tab waist adjustment (I'm fat 270lbs) and it stays on without a belt. The liner unsnaps (I own a pair of REI-made shorts that I cut out the liner from). There's a small ZOIC brand-tab on the right leg hem line, on my right leg that chafes as I ride. My right-leg thigh pocket's inner serged seam started fraying on the first cold-water wash (you could see it dangling out of the pocket), so I hope these stay together. I got the winter camo, and my wife hates the pattern, but I love it.

I wear a 42 waist, and the XXL works great.

These shorts rock!!!!

    II should've got two of these. I can see myself wearing these all summer long and never taken them off. Except when I walk into the macdonnalds in the Greedy little tourist town of west Glacier to rinse them out.

    I keep coming back to zoic

    A tough ride had me endoing off the trail, bouncing across boulders and rocks and into a bush and cactus. Besides gashes and scrapes to me (and stitches), my jersey and shorts were also thrashed. I'll repair them to ride again (iron on repair tape--I'm not too proud!) but I also used it as an excuse to add some new gear to my closet. I've got several Zoic shorts (several Ether and the Reign knickers) and have or have had a couple other brands (Endura, Fox, Lee). I ride several times a week and I tend to reach for the zoic before I work my way to the other brands. The weight of the fabric, stretch, and fit suit me very well for riding here in the rocky mountain west. I ditch the liner as I either ride no chamois or with bibs underneath so I can't report on the liner comfort. A couple of the zoic shorts are offered at a discount without liner which is a great deal for folks like me. I like the looks of the camo and don't regret buying (even with the added expense of the liner). Oh--and a couple years ago I had a pair of zoic ethers that had a defect (came apart at seam)--warranty with Zoic was top notch--replaced with minimal hassle other than the communication back and forth.

    Look great

    These shorts look great and have a ton of storage. The material breathes easy and very light weight. I have an issue with the liner. They seem to lack room in the crotch area. This could be cause I'm right on the edge of M or L and I went with a M. They are removable though. Other than the minor issue with liner, they seem very durable and the length is perfect. Long enough, but not too long to obstruct pedal motion (by hanging up on knee). Overall great pair of riding shorts and I purchased an additional pair. BackCountry offered them at a great price, so I couldn't pass them up.

    This is the third pair of Zoic Shorts that I have bought and I find them very comfortable to wear while biking. I most definitely will but more. They give me the support I like while allowing me to stay cool at the same time.

    The shorts for me!

    I have been wearing the Ethers for a few years now and they are really the only shorts I wear these days. Not overly big and just the rite length for me. Stretchy stuff in all the right spots and more pockets than you know what to do with.

    Now available in camo! come on! I have the grey and they are perfect, not overly offensive camo'ed out just right. Nice detail with the chartreuse zippers. Good job Zoic.

    These things last for sure, you definitely get your money's worth.
