New for 2014, the Ether Quattro is for those who ride longer and harder in all conditions. On the outside, these shorts feature our exclusive Quattro fabric that provides:
1) 4-way stretch for action in every direction
2) Water resistance thanks to the Durable Water Repellent (DWR) treatment that makes water roll right off
3) Wind resistance outside
4) A soft brushed interior that is easy on your skin

On the inside this short is packed with features and built to last, delivering performance for all types of riders in any trail conditions: cross country, all mountain, freeride, downhill and even urban and commuting. Our Ether shorts offer the 3 for 1 value of the ZOIC Interchangeable Padded Liner (IPL) System: a fully integrated baggy bike short that separates into a versatile technical short and our IPL Essential Liner.

Ether Premium

I bought the regular Ether shorts, these are functional, comfortable and fashionable. So, I buy the premium pair next, to my surprise the snap closure at the waist pulled through the thin material, before I get to ride with them. Took them to a tailor, who sewed thicker material onto the area where the male end of the snap closure broke. Beware of this, as it could be an issue, otherwise these are the cat's pajamas'.

Men's Either Premium Shorts

Have to admit I’ve only used these shorts with the premium removable liner a couple of times. But each ride has been in excess of three hours on the trails in Utah. I am very pleased with the shorts, their fit, their styling, the fabric and the craftsmanship of construction. But the really impressive part is the premium liner. The cushioning and comfort is out of this world, no need for chamois cream. The liner is breathable and did I mention comfortable. I’m going to buy another pair.
