Go green while getting dirty.
The ZOIC Ether Shorts are a mash-up of high-tech features, fantastic
comfort, and understated style, and as per all ZOIC offerings, it's made
of recycled materials wherever possible.
The most important feature of the Ether 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 Ether
extremely versatile. You can wear the shorts with the liner, then ditch
the liner post-ride. You can even wear the liner with other shorts to
transform them from casual shorts to riding shorts.
The Ether's list of features doesn't end with its removable chamois
liner, though. The whole body of the Ether is made with a stretch
material that won't bind or limit your range of motion, and Zoic taped
the seams to create a smooth surface that won't cause chafing. 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 Ether 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 dedicated media pocket for your phone or
music player with a headphone cord control grommet and loop to avoid
As far as fit is concerned, the Ether's cuffs fall right at the knee.
The leg holes are loose enough that they don't interfere with knee
pads. Zoic also included waist adjustments so you can fine-tune the fit.
The flat front waistband is secured with a standard zip-and-snap
