It's a classic dilemma—you've got a closet full of Lycra and nothing to wear when your friends invite you out for a demo day in the dirt. If only you had a pair of Zoic Ether SL Shorts on hand to slip over your favorite bibs and save you from the inevitable mocking that accompanies wearing the solo super hero spandex suit in a crowd of baggies. You'd also appreciate the lightweight fabric's comfortable stretch that simultaneously protects your legs and stretches for full range of motion as you navigate a technical rock garden that your friends promised would be easy, allowing you to arrive back at the trailhead unscathed and ready to dive into the cooler for a refreshing post-ride bevvie.

THE Shorts you have been looking for

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I went through a slew of shorts trying to find a pair that was light and felt like they werent there for when I dont want to wear a full clown suit. They have perfect stretch and fit my medium short inseam needs. Super rad!

Comfy, lightweight with no extra junk

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I've grown to like shorts that don't have a metric ton of pockets, like say Zoics regular Ether shorts have. So these Ether SL shorts are great. Baggy enough to fit over knee pads. No issues moving around on the saddle. Good adjustments for the waist band.

Hopefully they are durable.

Best riding shorts ever made!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

This is my favorite pair of riding shorts that I’ve ever owned! They are so light that it’s like riding in regular xc bibs and it’s the only shorts that i can stand to ride in down in the southern heat and humidity. Zoic did great with these shorts and I’ll continue to wear them until i can’t!

Superior lightweight shorts

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Really love these shorts. The fit, is spot on, I'm usually right inbetween a 31/32 and ordered a medium. I fluctuate a few lbs from month to month but the smooth waste band with the adjustable hook and loop straps are probably the best I've had on any short. The lightweight material feels like it's barely there and have loved them especially in warm weather.

Nice LW Short

    Usually rock some of the lighter weight Troy Lee shorts, but these are compareable. Great for every day trail riding.
