The ZOIC Crew is giving thanks this holiday for all of you, our customers, who love riding bikes so much that we get to make a living making clothes for you! We hope you checked out our new releases as they were revealed over the last 11 months, came back for your gear needs throughout the year and also took advantage of our annual Mega Sale earlier this month to close out the season. Now that you’ve got the look you want, make the most of your time off by avoiding the stores and getting out on your bike this Friday, or any day this weekend. To encourage you we're running a special...
On Wednesday, November 5th, I loaded up my truck and headed out to Prescott, Arizona to paint a giant 400ft x 13ft mural for the
new Whole Foods Market in town. I’ve painted murals for 7 Whole Foods stores now, but this one was the biggest and in a lot of ways, the most difficult.
I’d never been to Prescott, but I knew I had to bring my bike- even if I got to ride for just an hour. It took about 8 hours to get to Prescott. I got into town and went straight to the store to meet the team and see what I was up against in person, as pictures didn’t do it justice. I also met my...
Well there comes that time of year where all the bike companies decide to meet in one of the most expensive, sinful, and ridiculously fun cities in America. A little hot place called Las Vegas. A moment in cycling where the old stuff will be showcased and replaced with the new, and beer flows 24 hours a day for all cyclist alike. The industry renowned INTERBIKE in Vegas is home to the unfailing of next years cycling goods. So IF you don't blow it all at the tables, you can get your hands on some fine product for next year. Luckily for me, I don't gamble…so I'm all good.
It's that time again, the ZOIC Warehouse Sale!

You never think you’re going to get hurt until you do. I’ve never taken my health for granted, at least, I don’t think I have.
I’ve always pushed the limit, but in my own way. Being a self employed artist & muralist, I have to be careful because if I get hurt,
no one can do my job for me but me- and my health is my wealth.
But I also don’t want to have fun and experience life to it’s fullest. If I didn’t that would be a waste of my health.
I’ve heard of people blowing their knees out, MCL, ACL, Meniscus… always sounded bad, but I never thought it would...
See the look on my face in the photo of me with my bike? Not happy. Went off a jump wrong, leg came off the bike and hyperextended my knee really bad. So bad I thought I dislocated my knee (although that's hard to do). So bummed.
I partially dislocated my left shoulder in college on my first mountain bike with front suspension. A Haro Escape- hard tail. Fun bike- but that messed me up for a while. Took forever to be able to paddle surfing correctly again.
My doctor doesn't think my meniscus is torn, or my ACL. He thinks my muscles and tendons were really strained- and they...
We make great shorts. That's not self-inflating hype, that's the consensus of thousands of customers who have bought ZOIC shorts over the years, as expressed by all of you who tell us about it in reviews you post online and the stories you share with us at events, and as evidenced by all of you who come back to buy multiple colors of your favorite styles.
Mixed in with all of those reviews and stories are often requests. A common request we hear is "Why don't you sell your shorts without liners? I wear my ZOIC shorts for (choose any combination: hiking, rock climbing, trail running...
Summers are cool here in West Virginia. Temps rarely go into the Eighties and let's face it, its a rain forest! The last two summers, I've been getting people to come up from the city lowlands to take one of my skills clinics or guide them on a ride. Its so nice riding in head high ferns and soaking legs in cold creeks, while getting to ride technical terrain.
Seven lucky ladies attended the Canaan MTB School and honed log hopping skills, off camber roots and rock gardens. It was a beautiful weekend of sunshine and warm temps.
Next up was a Women's Pedalpalloza Skills...
Today I met Gangju Jo from South Korea at 7-11 in Cardiff as I was walking in to get something to drink, since it was like 83 degrees. I noticed his bike first, loaded with riding, camping and travel gear… but not as much as you’d think. It was packed up pretty nice and neat. Then I saw Gangju who was wearing a long sleeve Race Face lycra shirt- and I realized he was on a long ride. Little did I know how far he’d come.
He flew over from South Korea on a 30 day visa to ride his bike from Montreal Canada, all the way down the east coast to Florida. Then from Florida he rode through...
Here at Keystone Colorado for the 3rd stop of the Big Mountain Enduro Series, and also part of the North American Enduro Tour. Its been a fun but rough month of training and racing. I found myself over trained and in a hole for the first two stops of the Big Mountain Enduro Series. Riding with no power and tired. My last couple of races I felt like I was holding on for dear life, never in control. Never good signs for any athlete. So I took 4 days off the bike to recharge the batteries. I later found out after a Chiropractor visit that my back and body are severely out of alignment. So I...
