great shorts!

thin and breathable but tough. the pockets are deep too!

The best!

I have both the Black Market and Ether style shorts.

I much prefer the Black Market model. For me, keys, phone, sunglasses etc. "hang" better in this model both when biking and walking.

They're definitely the best I've tried of any brand.

Love these shorts! Fit great! My husband loves them!

Bike shorts for a big guy? - Hell yea! Black Markets Rock

LOVE THESE SHORTS! Being 6' and 275 LBS with a 46 waist, I struggle to find shorts that fit me. Often times I find shorts I like, which the Bike Shop never has in my size, to jump on line and find the manufacturer doesn't make them any bigger. But not Zoic! 3XL? Nuh uhh, but yes, ZOIC HAS THEM for us large but aggesive riders! I probably could have worn the 2XL, but these are great! The extra support of the synching belt is the plus on this one. Though the Ether's fit well, this belt keeps the Black Markets from rotating around by belt line then binding on my thighs like the Ethers while riding, but even more improtant saving those riders behind me from riders crack. THANK YOU ZOIC for helping us larger riders out!!


Been using two pairs on rotation basis or almost 2years. fits just right for riding. but the stitching at the bottom where we sat on the saddle began to break. so far, it has not given up is still fighting to stay on. better stitches for future design maybe? inner liner also begin to show wear and tear pretty was torn near the waist area but sill usable.

Overall, nice fitting and great design.

Very nice Shorts-Very nice fit...but what's up with that super long belt? Need to cut about 6 to 8 inches off!
