Nzo are a New Zealand-based company that are well known in Australia (and perhaps worldwide) for their hard-wearing bike shorts. These things just won't die! Many of our mad MTB friends back home use these shorts and no-one has even heard of any ever failing them or wearing through. Also, these shorts are good stylish and modest alternative to lycra (we don't want to scare the locals!).
Nzo also do a full range of bike clothing, and are providing us with several other pieces, including merino tops for when it gets chilly. Thanks Nzo!
