Item # ZOI0223

Zoic crammed an amazing load of features into the Black Market Mountain Bike Short—unheard of at this price. A high-end, removable chamois, a built-in nylon webbing belt, and a full array of pockets are just the tip of the iceberg.

The most important feature of the Black Market short is its chamois liner. The chamois, called the Zo-Tech, is Zoic's highest-quality, multi-level, stretch chamois. It's even made with recycled polyester so it gives a little back. The chamois cushions impacts and reduces vibrations in the saddle. The liner is also fully removable, which makes the Black Market extremely versatile. You can wear the shorts with the liner, then ditch the liner post-ride, or wear the liner with other shorts to transform them from casual shorts to riding shorts.

The Black Market's list of features doesn't end with its removable chamois liner, though. The whole body of the Black Market is made with a stretch material that won't bind or limit your range of motion. The fabric also pulls moisture away from your skin to keep you dry and comfortable. The Fusion Gusset inseam further increases the short's range of motion and eliminates seat hang-ups, while vents below the waistband in the back and down the legs promote airflow so you can stay cool on hot days of riding. The Black Market also comes with plenty of pockets–two front, two thigh, and one back– so you have plenty of room for your essentials. There's even a microfiber sunglass-wipe to keep your vision clear.

As far as fit is concerned, the Black Market's cuffs fall right at the knee. The leg holes are loose enough that they don't interfere with knee pads. Zoic also included a nylon webbing belt so you can fine-tune the fit. The flat front waistband is secured with a standard zip-and-snap closure.

ZOIC Black Market Mountain Bike Shorts come in sizes Small through 3XL. They are available in Tan, Castle, Black, or Nova.

Solid bike shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

These shorts have a slightly shorter inseam which is great for shorter riders like myself. I'm 5'8 and they go just past my knees when standing. The included liner is comfortable and breathable and there are three zipper pockets and two hand pockets for stashing gear. My only complaint is the lack of a built-in waist adjustment and that they use Velcro rather than a button to secure the fly. Other than that I'm completely satisfied with these shorts and would definitely recommend!

Could be good shorts...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
  • Fit: Runs small
  • Size Bought: Laege

Shorts look nice and material is good and they are inexpensive if you compare these shorts to other brands, but as always, there are some catches: Zoic use Velcro instead of the usual button snap. Velcro tends to attach to any fabric on contact and damages your shirts, short liners, underpants and everything else... Guess what will happen in the washer and dryer when you wash these shorts with open Velcro with other clothing.
Also, these shorts are about 1 size smaller that what you would expect. Get XL if your waist measures 34-35 inches.

Nice Shorts

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Comfortable shorts - note they run a little small. It is a nice fabric, easy movement but they are heavier than you would expect (not thick, just heavy).

Awesome Shorts!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size

I started out with a black pair of market shorts a couple of years ago. The fabric is flexible and the shorts have held up great after riding, working out, and casual wear. I picked up a grey pair a year ago and now I am eyeing the khakis to round out my collection. Best riding shorts I have come across.
