I have had good luck with the Sugoi RS so why not buy the RSE... right?
Well, a lot of reasons it turns out.
1. Fit: The waist fit is the same as the RS but the legs and the cuff are so tight the my leg looks like an anaconda is wrapped around it. This will not affect everyone equally. I have a track cyclist build, 6'0", 180 lbs. If you have thin legs you will be fine.
2. Chamois burn: Really. Chamois burn, I have never ever came back from a 2.5 hour ride and had to stand on the pedals the final 5 miles in. I have used dozens of chamois in shorts ranging from $50 - $250 and never had anything rub me that raw. The chamois should form to the behind, not vice versa.
3. Colors bleed labels gone: The black material on the cuff stained the white and labels are kind of hanging off after a couple rides.
So what is right about the shorts? The material which I don't know the make of is awesome. It had good compression and kept me cool and dry on hot steamy days.
