I have not always been a fan of spandex. When I first tried them on in College; while racing for the Fort Lewis Cycling team, I was skeptical at first. My first ride wearing a pair of bibs was like heaven…I could not believe I rode my bike for years without wearing bibs or padded shorts. My life was forever changed…I would never go back. My first time wearing a pair of the ZOIC Ether Shorts was even more of a dream then my first chamois experience. First of all, I look normal with these sweet shorts that are loaded with awesome and useful pockets. Then there is the non-existent feel of the padded mesh liner, that when worn, feels like you are wearing next to nothing. My bibs…all 30 pairs of them (and all $120.00 and up) are nothing close to how comfortable the ZOIC IPL Essential liners are.

Every fashionista knows the importance of having a wardrobe that can mix and match, and that’s exactly what you’ll get from ZOIC. I was totally obsessed with my Damsel Plaid Woven Skirt. The polyester, water-resistant skirt was sporty yet feminine. The padded chamois bike shorts were attachable but also removable, so I could easily wear the shirt over a bathing suit or regular spandex shorts when not on the bike. When zip-lining across the valleys, canyons and forests of the Cordillera de Tilarán mountain range with a panoramic view of Arenal Volcano and Lake, I matched the skirt with the Starburst V-Neck Tech Tee which was comfortable and colorful and would be great for any activity or working out at the gym. While cycling to the Arenal National Park, I paired the plaid skirt with ZOIC's classic Jayden Jersey—with cycling pockets in the back, a half-zip in the front, and a longer sleeve to protect my shoulders from the sun. For our shaded hike through Arenal National Park, I shed my red jersey and trekked through the strong cane and rain forest path to admire the amazing wildlife and stunning views of Arenal Volcano in my gray Tailwind Tank. Each combination was perfect for this multisport destination, and ZOIC showed as much diversity as the Rain Forests of Costa Rica...
