- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've worn these shorts on a handful of rides now, and they're definitely one of my favorites. The cut is on the slim side - I wear a small and have had to cinch up the waist on all my other shorts, but not the Zoic's - they fit perfectly out of the box. Along the same lines, I've noticed that they don't cover my knee pads as much as other shorts with a 13" inseam - because the cut is slimmer, I don't think they hang down quite as much when you're in the saddle.
The fabric is nice - fairly lightweight and with a little bit of stretch, but still feels durable enough to take some abuse. Sewing and overall build quality is top notch and everything works as it should. Once I'm riding, I don't notice them at all, which is the way shorts should be!
