Mr. Popular.

The Zoic Men's Ether Short is the Goldilocks short for trail riding adventures with its stretchy, ultra-tough fabric, variety of easily accessible pockets, and built-in ventilation. DuraFlex fabric not only conforms to your every movement while you're sending natural hits and railing around berms, but it's also incredibly resilient against abrasion. Air Flow mesh panels sit below the rear waistband and down the legs, actively cooling your body as you rush down the mountain.

One of the best things about the Ether Short is the large variety of functional pockets. In total, you'll find six pockets for convenient storage, including a media-compatible pocket for seamlessly routing your tunes during longer rides. The Fusion Inseam Gusset provides full range of motion while eliminating fabric snags on your seat. And to retain a secure fit, adjustable waist tabs prevent the short from slipping as you're bombing downhills and cranking up steep hillsides.

  • Quintessential all-mountain shorts
  • DuraFlex fabric promotes fluid range of motion
  • Falls just-below-knee for optimum coverage and roominess
  • Bright color pops and subdued palettes suit any style
  • Zoic creates obsessively refined riding apparel

Great gift for the biker in the family

  • Fit: True to size

Love the style of these shorts. Like having the liner and the shorts separate. Gave them as a gift for my Dad. He really liked them. Would recommend.

Love these shorts!

These are my 2nd pair of these. Pockets are great, fit is great. Much more durable than some higher priced shorts I've tried. Only thing I'd say against them is to ditch the liner which is available on some versions.

GREAT for about a month

I really liked these shorts when I first received them. Then after about a month one of the pocket zippers failed. They are super cheap zippers and have no place on bike shorts. Then about 2 weeks later the button fell apart. The fabric and general construction is nice at first but after a bit of use the cheap components begin to fail. Ill never buy anything from Zoic again. Definitely NOT recommended

I have two pairs of these shorts. One with a liner, one without. Love them. I am 5-11, 230 lbs. XL fits perfectly. The liner was not for me, too thin. The shorts have plenty of pockets. They breathe well, and stretch to move with you. As far as length, they just touch the top of my knee. The atomic color is pear green. Maybe a little darker than the picture.

Fit is correct, like an SUV of bike shorts-they are very capable of doing anything and everything. Pockets and vents galore. I just bought a second pair.

Worth the price

Overall, great riding shorts. Fit is superb with the flexible waist band. I have a 35 in waist and size L works. I love the ability to use my existing padded shorts beneath this liner. Used for both road and mountain biking. Dries fast...so I wear them right into coffee shops and restaurants right off the bike.

I've been riding in ZOIC shorts since the 90's, and they keep getting better over time. The Ether short with the Duraflex liner is incredible- very stretchy and durable. The phone pocket on the side is key for those rides when you don't want to wear a Camelbak. I have a 34" waist and wear the larges- I synch up the velcro adjusters just a bit. Get some, you will love them!

These shorts are simply awesome!

Great shorts! simple and lightweight.. just throw some bibs underneath and away you go. Strong enough to protect those expensive tights below and light enough to barely know their there. Liked them so much, I bought another pair

Great shorts. I have One Ind,Alpinestars and Endura and the Zoic's are by far the most comfortable and easy to wear. Can't wait to get some different colors. Do run a touch small. Normally with mediums, I need to take in a little with the Velcro but not with these.

Great fitting shorts

Looking for some shorts that weren't too long or too short this perfect inseam fit just above the knees. Elastic waist allows flexibility and movement. Pockets are in perfect positions with zippers that allows you to access quick and easy. Love these shorts so much ordered two more pairs in different colors. Great choice if looking for a cross country trail riding shorts that is extremely functionable and looks good on you.

Super Stretchy

    I could probably live a whole summer in these shorts. They remind me of some comfortable old Gramiccis I used to wear all the time. I'm still not sure how you pronounce Zoic, but these shorts have the pockets in the right places and all the features you need to shred hard on your bike. I'd say they do run a little large and I find myself sometimes getting caught up when I swing my leg over the saddle. There are a bunch of brands out there now making products that function as active wear but can be used as lifestyle wear. These shorts nail it.
