Love these shorts!

I love three things about these shorts: side pockets for fuel (bars, gels, almonds, or a credit card when I'm traveling), small pad so I don't feel like I'm wearing a diaper, and a slim fit. It runs a little small, so if you're not sure you should probably go a size up. I like having a stripe of design at the top but the rest of the short being black so I have a little color but can still wipe my hands on my shorts after a tire change.

great price, ran small

Bought these in the Zoot sale so got a great price. Love them but was a little smaller than expected. I normally get smalls but if i bought again i would prob go with medium

Nice shorts

I’ve liked all the Zoot Tri shorts I own... the only complaint is the placement of the tag. This one was right down the middle of the back so it ended up being right in the crack of my butt — cut it out and it’s fine but come on Zoot this is not the first time I’ve had to cut the tags out completely due to their placement.

HI Connie. All of our tags are excessively long due to various languages we need to print in. They all come designed with perforated to be gently torn off before using them.
