The Ether short is Zoic's best-selling short because it is packed with features and built to last, delivering performance for all types of riders in any sort of trail condition: cross country, all mountain, freeride, downhill and even urban and commuting. Ether shorts offer the 3 for 1 value of the ZOIC Interchangeable Padded Liner (IPL) System: a fully integrated baggy bike short that separates into a versatile technical short and a high-quality padded cycling liner.
I've had the older version of these shorts for the past few years and they've been great, just worn out because I wear them on EVERY ride. I've just spent the last hour browsing the website for something new/different, but I keep coming back to these for their known value and comfort. I also think I've gone up a size due to IPA hobby.
One of my favorite riding shorts! Light weight and good ventilation for those long rides on hot TX days. Thankful the liner is removable and appreciate the number of pockets. Overall, great buy!
