FROM LOGAN, AT BIKEPACKING.COM:

Sifters are NZO’s ‘trail’ shorts.

These shorts are designed to be worn when you’re slaying single track, but would be equally at home in the local taproom.
In fact, they’re pretty much the ideal short for a minimalist month long dirt odyssey.

I am extremely impressed with these and am planning on riding them for many miles on upcoming trips

Sifters - Street/trail shorts

Sifters are our all-day every day street / trail shorts, and the latest version of this design is even better than before. Sifters are built to live in 24/7, but when you go bike riding they really shine. The new NzoFlex fabric we use is lightweight but tough with generous four-way stretch. ORDER NOW

The Nzo Waist Adjuster

Our system of waist adjustment has been proven in the field for many thousands of kilometres. For a start, it's external. So you can get at it while you are wearing the pants. A long webbing strap goes forward around a D ring, then back on itself to be fixed in place with velcro. The velcro will not slip, and adjustment is very simple: grab the pull tabs, peel the velcro, pull out or let in, refix the velcro. Simple and effective.

Sifters are a casually styled outer-short that wouldn’t look out of place just walking down the street. A slim, yet non-restrictive cut leads to a comfortable ride without excess material flapping in the wind.A stretch panel at the bum that extends to the side of the hips keeps the shorts in place and provides enough movement to never feel restrictive. The shorts feature two main pockets and a third zippered pocket on the leg. Each pocket was generously sized and caused no problems with affecting pedalling motion...
After a few months of testing and having known other riders to use the same pair for years, we have nothing but praise for the durability. The Sifters are a quality short that were as comfortable at the coffee shop as they were on the trail.

FROM JOEL (A CUSTOMER):

Feels like after hundreds of hours of riding and years of ownership I should need to replace.

However these still look and feel the same as when purchased. Always comfy, on and off the bike. Please, never change!

Not only are these a hard wearing and well thought out MTB short, they are great for travel; I use these a lot when taking international flights when going in search of dirt overseas. Top reason: big side pockets. These fit all your important documents so you don’t have to keep digging into your bag.

These would be the reference you compare other shorts to, except once you get a pair, you don't need to compare anymore - you just put em on and ride.I've been riding various generations of the sifters for a long time. I've ridden 10 hour soggy epics, crashed in rock gardens, crashed in to trees, crashed on smooth dirt, crashed on tarseal, crashed in to friends, crashed in to a wombat, crashed on grass and crashed in to taxis and my Sifters still look like new, smell like new, feel great, and get the job done with more style and less hassle that anything else I've tried.

NOW AVAILABLE IN INDIGO!

We are currently making this design in a fetching shade of Indigo, but that won't continue forever. We made a batch of our exclusive Nzoflex fabric in this cool colour, and when it's gone we will make a different colour. So if you like this colour (like we do!) grab a pair NOW!

SIFTERS ARE UNISEX

We set out to design a generally male oriented short, but that doesn't stop women from wearing them. Many women like the fit of this design and are very happy with their choice. Aly was so stoked with the pair she is using in the photoshoot we did for the first Limited Edition of 2022 she ordered a pair the following week.
