Love Letters

Hey Paul,
Just wanted to let you know I just got my shorts in the mail. Man am I ever excited to try these babies out! My butt is going to thank me big time. I appreciate the care you guys gave me and will let you know how it goes. I am heading out on a family vacation to Vancouver Island (Canada) next week and plan to put some miles on.

Take care,

Travis Huisman

A great big thank you to ZOIC.

You and Eric really did a great job with the sale event and promoting good causes. I saw many SDMBA members shopping there, and this past weekend I saw several people out riding in their new ZOIC clothing. SDMBA appreciates your support and certainly the donated funds help our organization do what it takes to open more trails in San Diego.

Thank you!

Ether Audio ROCKS!

Awesome shorts, by the way. I doesn't bind as much as Fox shorts. I'm guessing that's because of the softer shell. The shell also lets me slide around in the saddle more, so I get more mobility. I like the front pockets too, they're more upright and let me drop things in quicker. And the waistband has the right about of velcro and elastic. Fits great and keeps my butt crack where it needs to be. Not a bad price either.


We, at Biking for a Better World, are proud to be using Zoic apparel for our next project, Montana to Mexico, September 2009. After pulling Zoic gear more than 15,000 miles from Prudhoe Bay, Alaska to Ushuaia, Argentina in 2007, we are confident that Zoic can hold up in all conditions. The support that Zoic has offered has been invaluable and helped make our charitable adventures successful. Thank you, Zoic.

Thank you, Zoic!

For me, buying bike clothing has always been as easy as sticking a round
block into a square hole... Or rather, a curvy me into shapeless (loose in
some areas, binding in others) and uncomfortable bike tops. It's almost as
though biking apparel companies think that all active women are shaped just
like guys.

Then I found your Sass Cap shirt. Hallelujah! It has chest darts. Chest
darts! For that reason it is easily the most comfortable and stylish bike
top I have ever owned. I will now go back to my local REI and buy one (no...
two!) in every color.

My hopes are pretty high that you've been thoughtful enough to create bike shorts for curvy gals, too. If so, another fan letter will soon follow. Thanks again. Have a great weekend!

Ether Short

Please do not ever stop making the Ether baggy with the removable liner. The absolute best item of clothing I have ever owned!!!! I purchased them from Performance Bike. I own the black and I am buying the grey this week.

Thanks, Darren

Dear Zoic,

I purchased two of your shirts on and have been utterly amazed at how they have performed. The shirt I bought was short-sleeve nylon (I think) and woven in a "waffle" pattern. I do not see this particular shirt on your website and would like to know what comparable product you could suggest.

The "waffle" weave is incredible at keeping me cool and dry while hiking and biking. It is by far the best shirt in my collection, which includes the likes of North Face, Mountain Hardwear, REI, and Cloudveil. If you still offer this style shirt and I have just overlloked it on your site, please direct me to where I can find it.

Thanks for the great product!

Sincerely, M. Nilsen

ZOIC makes top notch clothing

My first pair of mountain bike shorts were Zoic Vigor Delux... I wore them for 5 years before I finally wore them out. I am on the fourth year with my second pair, and now I've graduated to the Apocolypse. I just bought my second pair of Apocolypse... more riding, less time doing laundry. What a great short! I'm cursed with chicken legs and the Apocolypse fit is snug but stretchy, and the liner is very comfortably padded without looking like you have a padded liner at all. The material is very tough and very durable, and the pockets and vents are very functional.

Zoic's customer service is excellent. I had a couple questions I wanted to ask before I plopped down $75 on bike shorts and the responses from Zoic were quick and accurate (thanks Alyssa!). Excellent company with excellent products. Now if they would just carry legs and lungs I would be perfectly outfitted!

Great job Zoic... keep up the good work!

My jacket == wonderful

Just a quick thanks. Bought a Zoic fleece to replace one that had fallen to the tests of time. It was comfy, but there seemed to be consensus that the thing was too thin to be of much use once it got really cold outside -- and I'll admit, I agreed with them at the time.

However, having recently put it through some intense testing, I have to admit the following: it's warmer than my snowboarding jacket. It's true. I spent a week in Vail not long ago, where the temperature was in the high single digits. I didn't realize how warm the fleece was keeping me until I realized that I wasn't wearing a jacket; thinking what a stupid decision that was, I removed the fleece and donned my boarding jacket the next time I ventured out. The result: I froze my ass off.

So let's just say this: Zoic fleece, 1, cold-weather clothing, 0. And I can wear it in the summer, too! Genius. And after being washed several dozen times, it's just as soft and comfortable as ever. Don't know how you do it, but keep it up.

You guys are wonderful. Thought you should know.


Excellent Service

I just wanted to thank Zoic Clothing for the fast, professional, and great quality service on some repair work done to my riding shorts, RA#11291. With any luck, the snow will be off the ground and I'll be riding soon on my newly fixed shorts. I will not hesitate to recommend Zoic to my friends.

You mean cycling clothing isn't SUPPOSED to be binding and uncomfortable for us mere mortals? Finally a XXXL that FITS like a XXXL
