Essential Liner

As advertised a great liner for short to medium rides.

good stuff

Very comfortable, I find the description pretty accurate. These are great for about 2 hours and after that I start wishing I had something a little better. I'm definitely going to give the ultra's a try for the longer adventures. They do break down over time but I get a solid year out of them before I start to notice

great liner

Great, lightweight liner. Not tight, comfortable and nice padding for a low profile liner.

Not lasting very long

Nice product, when new, but wearing out before I expected them to. I ride at work (LEO) for approximately 100 hours per month and the Chamois seems are tearing. The elastic is great as well as most of the rest, but the seems on the chamois have much to be desired. I figured I wouldn't make it to the 2000 hour mark until over a year and a half, but I am close to needing replacement after only six months.

Zoic Essential liner

Good comfortable, and cool liner but front of chamois is not high enough.

The Best

I have 2 Zoic Assault Liners that are just now starting to become threadbare adjacent to the chamois pad. I just reviewed my purchase history, and I bought those liners both in 2009. I ride trails 3-5 days per week, year round. Zoic's chamois position is the only one that puts the chamois where it belongs. The new liner is exactly like the old Assault liner, as advertised. The fit is perfect as always, and the pads and the elastic grippers on the bottom of the pants keep them in place for entire rides.

I wish my road bike spandex fit like these.

Zoic's stuff is always high-end.

Awesome liner, been using it

Awesome liner, been using it for a year. Very well made and super comfortable.
