    Turn any shorts into cycling shorts.

    Whether you're hammering a daily commute or looking to add some padding to your favorite trail baggies, the Zoic Women's Essential Short Liner offers anatomically contoured padding within a supportive, form-fitting design. As the go-to liner short in Zoic's lineup, this padded liner short fits comfortably under almost any pair of shorts or pants, instantly transforming casual garments into padded, bike-friendly attire.

    Made with an ample dose of Lycra, this bike liner short offers muscle support and stability. Its flatlock seams won't rub or irritate your skin when you're riding, while the 6-panel design forgoes a center-front seam for extra comfort and mobility. Its Zo-Tech chamois is a female-specific insert that's anatomically contoured for a comfortable, body-conforming fit. Moreover, this chamois actively wicks moisture off your body, preventing the build-up of perspiration and the inevitable chafing that follows.

    • Turn your favorite unlined shorts into chamois-equipped attire
    • Breathable fabric wicks moisture quickly away
    • Comfort chamois provides supportive comfort
    • Flatlock seams prevent chafing
    • Elastic leg cuffs hold hems in place
    • Shorter inseam hides stealthily under casual clothing
    • Item #ZOI006S

    Cute, but not highly functional

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium
    • Height: 5'9"
    • Weight: 145lbs

    I was stoked to see that the ocean color was available as I was looking for a fun pair of chamois to add to my line up of boring black ones. I tried on the medium, and found that the reviews were true when they said that they were comfortable. So comfortable in fact, that after riding I don't feel like need immediately change out of them! I have poc riding shorts, so I was looking for a pair of chamois that also had a high back and I thought these were perfect!

    However, the padding is sub-par and didn't even feel like there was padding there if I was doing a ride over an hour. If you are going for a cruiser ride around a boardwalk, these are awesome... but if you are truly going riding I would recommend investing in a better pair of shorts with more padding.

    Zoic Essential Liner Bike Shorts

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size

    I really like that I can wear these shorts with shorter length shorts on top on days that I don't want long shorts. They don't ride up even on long rides. These are good for a couple of miles, but I wouldn't wear them on a really long ride because they just don't have enough padding.

    Perfect Chamois for every day

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share
    • Fit: True to size

    Wife loves these so much we ended up grabbing a few different pairs. Great fit, breathable, not too hot, excellent protection.

    New Go-To Linear

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Small
    • Height: 5'6"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    Feels like I'm not even wearing them! Second skin, that just so happens to make the riding a bit more comfortable :) I wore these for the first time on a 24 hour mountain bike race and found that I wore or wanted to wear these on most of my 5 laps. I used them with ZOIC and non ZOIC brand baggies and they worked well with all the shorts. My favorite feature is the thicker waist band. It sits comfortably on my waist, and stays in place without being too tight and constricting in the belly region.

    Comfy but rides up

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: XS

    These are super comfortable and chamois great for under baggy shorts, but after 30 minutes of riding, they ride up and become very irritating. Maybe the leg bands need to be tighter?

    Comfy everyday liner

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: Lg
    • Height: 5'10"
    • Weight: 130lbs

    I mostly use this for mountain biking, but occasionally I'll take the road bike out for a townie spin and wear this for longer rides. It's not too bulky and pairs well with skinny jeans with ease.
