Why change a good thing?
Back for another season of dirt-shredding shenanigans, the Zoic Men's Ether Enduro Short retains its highly acclaimed design, complete with cavernous storage, fluid flexibility, and airy-cool ventilation. This version forgoes the removable Essential liner short with chamois, which is available separately for blissful cushioning and support on longer rides. Since it's designed with a trail-friendly fit, you can easily layer the Ether Enduro Short over your favorite liner short and pads without worrying about unwanted rubbing or restriction. The 12-inch inseam sits just above the knee, promoting freedom of movement without being overly baggy like some freeride or downhill offerings.
DuraFlex fabric fluidly stretches with your every movement as you rally around berms or pump across undulating trails and small rollers. This fabric is also highly resistant to abrasion, ensuring longevity when you're using and abusing them on a regular basis. Going one step further for flexibility, the inset gusset promotes unrestricted pedaling movement while preventing seat bunching. Air Flow mesh ventilation below the rear waistband and along the legs eliminates the sauna-like feel of sweaty shorts. Additionally, the multitude of zippered pockets effortlessly carries trail snacks, tools, and a smartphone/media player, with a cord port for painlessly routing headphones.

Great shorts! lightweight stretch fabric. I normally wear a 32-33 waist, and the size large needs to be sinched down a little with the adjustable velcro waist band. haven't crash tested yet... They are not made from the heavy duty nylon so I'm guessing they will be less durable compared to some other models, but these are great for an all day short that are very comfortable and don't get caught on the seat.
