The Ether just got really serious.
At first glance, they look like the much loved Ether Shorts, but this Premium model takes ZOIC's attention to detail a step further by using a CyTech removable chamois and the venerable Quattro fabric for the shell. Quattro is four-way stretch, water-resistant, and wind-resistant fabric that boasts durability and technical prowess for serious riders.
This makes them both tough and flexible enough for the downhill and free ride crowd, yet still light enough for trail and all-mountain riders. Flexibility is further enhanced at the back of the shell where an elastic waistband with hook-and-loop adjuster tabs let you dial-in fit without interfering with hydration pack straps.
At the front of the Ether's shell, the waistband is wide and flat in order to prevent pinching. The fit is secured with a snap closure and zip-fly to simply and effectively hold them in place. ZOIC took the time to add multiple pockets, and to place them where contents won't interfere with pedaling. Two front pockets keep essentials at hand, while two zippered leg and a rear zippered pocket provide safe storage for valuables.
But that's not the extent of the Ether's pockets. ZOIC also incorporated one for cell phones or music players with a grommet and loop for a headphone cord. All of the zippers are locking, so they'll stay shut while riding. They also feature logo'd tabs that are easy to use with gloves on. ZOIC even provides a microfiber sunglasses wipe that's secured with an elastic strap inside one of the pockets in order to keep your vision clear
The Ether's shell is tag'less to avoid irritation, and its cut is relaxed enough that you'll find yourself enjoying these shorts sans-bike. But, when in the saddle, the detachable liner with CyTech chamois will provide all-day comfort. This is due to its wicking polyester and stretchy spandex construction. Flatlock seams tie everything together, and the chamois is expertly designed to support and cushion.
The ZOIC Ether Premium Shorts are available in the color Black and in six sizes from Small to XXX-Large.
