FROM RICH, AFTER COMPLETING TOUR AOTEAROA:

I took two pairs of these on a 3000k bikepacking trip: 

one pair for riding and the backup pair for, um, not riding. They excelled in both arenas.

At home I use them on the trails, and not on the trails. They are my do anything, go anywhere shorts.

Dobies - Padded mountain biking shorts

Nzo's completely unique design - we have a trademark product, and this is it. 

Unbelievable comfort in a short that can be used in a variety of ways to suit the ride and the conditions. Dobies are a unisex light padded trail short. 

Thousands of riders have championed the simplicity and functionality of this design on every kind of ride from a trip to the store to a multi-year odyssey.

NZO shorts are bar-none for quality...Think function over form. Even though they look pretty good, they’re all about comfort and performance. Dobies are a ridiculously comfy riding short with superior durability.

We feel they're good value, given the overall quality, and judging by how many people are riding in 10-year-old pairs, they last really well. The Dobies are definitely the most comfortable baggy shorts we have ever used.

Oh, man, the NZO Dobies. I love those shorts. The fit and look are great, they’re ridiculously comfortable with their thin pad worn “commando” style, and they are basically indestructible. I’ve bought exactly two pairs in my life. I got the first in 2003 and wore them on countless day rides and dozens of trips. Alongside a pair of lycra race bibs, they were the only shorts I had for the 11 months I spent in Asia and were my mainstay for warm weather. By 2010 they were just starting to show some age, so I got a new pair. That second pair has been to Nepal, Southeast Asia, the length of South America and through South Africa. I still reach for them nowadays and I can’t say they look much worn at all. Crazy.

The Dobies have been a mainstay of the Nzo line-up for many years now, and if the number of these shorts we encounter on the trail is something to go by, they’re both durable and very popular. We now know why. These may just be the most comfortable baggy shorts we’ve ridden in.

FROM JOHN, SURNAME WITHHELD TO PROTECT THE INNOCENT, UNSOLICITED COMMENT ON THE Nzo WEBSITE:

"Stop thinking about it and just buy them. Dobies are the best mountain biking shorts on the planet".

BEST CYCLING SHORTS!

These shorts are sooo good. Very comfortable for general riding, lots of pockets and very well ventilated for warm weather.I've had these for about a year and the quality is first rate.

FROM QUEENSLAND

I have 7 pair of Dobies.

I wear Dobies at least 5 time a week. 

I have Dobies just on 10 years old still on the rotation .
Great shorts for the hot climate I ride in.

Here is an ad we will never run again

We can't believe we ran it the first time.

Back in the day when there were not many mountain biking magazines, and precious few people reading them.

The N-Zo(ne) shop was in Tutanekai Street, in the palatial remains of a large Insurance Company's office we subleased. Three floors above the lawyers and accountants was the office of New Zealand's proto-mountain biking magazine. It was not the first, pretty sure the amazing Kennett Bros did that, but it was the first monthly, and had a good run considering nearly everybody who owned a mountain bike could fit in an Olympic swimming pool, for want of a better comparison.
