I have relied on Zoic shorts

I have relied on Zoic shorts since days of the Marquis. The Black Market is my latest Zoic purchase and these did not disappoint. The material is comfortable and stretches a little, so it gives with your movement. There are plenty of pockets and several with zippers, so there's no fear of items falling out of your pockets when you're rolling through rough terrain. An extra bonus is the detachable liner. This allows you to wear the shorts as regular shorts.

Awesome shorts

Overall, these shorts are very good. Primarily use them for riding my fixie. The number of pockets make it easy to carry my wallet, phone, tools. The sizings are accurate. The pad in the liner is a bit large for my preference, but they are well vented. The belted waist is a great asset compared to other shorts with drawstring/elastic waist. These shorts are a much better bargain than most on the market.

Black Market Shorts

I bought my first pair of Zoic Black Market Shorts a little over a month ago. I had heard good things about Zoic clothing and these shorts exceeded everything I was expecting. The quality material, the removable liner, the pockets, the zippers and the glasses cloth. A well thought out product. I liked them so much that I ordered the Black Market Convertible Quattro Pants last night for cold weather riding.

Awesome Cycle Shorts

I just bought my first pair of Zoic Black Market Shorts and I was blown away by the quality of them. All of the pockets, zippers and the sunglasses cloth sewn into the pocket. (Now that's attention to detail) It's so comfortable riding long distances now that I have these shorts.

market shorts

Very durable and cool. I like the liner provided. Easy to clean,and lots of pockets to store your belongings.

Comfortable short, great look

These are extremely comfortable and look great! The removable liner is an excellent feature as is the MP3 pocket with the cord pass through. I have owned a lot of different brands of mountain shorts but it's Zoic for me from here on out.
