Greate Bike Shorts

These are the most comfortable bike shorts I have ever had. I just bought a second pair. This second pair seems a little titer in the waste. Oh well, now I have another reason to ride more.

Nice shorts

The Black Market is a good basic short. I like the idea that they have a belt although it seems to sometimes get in the way if you leave in attached while riding. I bought these and a pair of the Ether Stretch. Both fit fine, the Black Market are a little looser though. My preference (and my wife's) are the Ether Stretch - they just fit me a little better.

Great for everyday, but run small

Just purchased two pairs of these...look great for wear everyday or commuting via bike. Obviously perfect for mountain bike with or without the liner.

Only thing I've noticed is they run small vs the Ether.

Black Market Shorts

I discovered Zoic on Bike To Work Day 2014. It was postponed due to the raging fires in San Diego County but was rescheduled, and I noticed that Zoic was on the Sponsor list. I was given a demo of the clothing at the Zoic Rider Support tent, and since I started riding mountain bikes about a year ago, decided to try the Black Market Shorts in Grey, with essential liner. Let me tell you, the comfort, support and padding is found nowhere else, and I have Mtn Biking shorts from 2 other manufacturers. The deep zippered pockets and key snap are really great to secure items on a hectic mtn bike ride. I'm looking at the new camo colored line of shorts for my next pair.

Great shorts

Got a pair of Zoic Black Market shorts this spring, and they are awesome! I'm a long-time roadie who's turning to the "dark side" and discovering the extreme fun of trail riding ~ this year I've hardly been on my road bike. I'm used to typical lycra road-wear, and was a little apprehensive about riding in looser style mountain bike shorts, but these are really great. Super light wt, don't catch or bind at all, I feel "Loose & Free" yet nicely contained. I ride with the inner liner, works great, and I use them without the liner for hiking, dining, hanging out. On a recent trip to Moab, I wore nothing but these the entire time ~ Perfect! Great shorts, thanks guys!

Awesome shorts

I started out with a black pair of market shorts a couple of years ago. The fabric is flexible and the shorts have held up great after riding, working out, and casual wear. I picked up a grey pair a year ago and now I am eyeing the khakis to round out my collection. Best riding shorts I have come across.

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.

I received my Black market short and was impressed by the quality. The size was perfect, the fit was also very good. After a first bike ride: very satisfied.

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.

inventory available
