Handle the hot weather.

Sugoi apparel has always shown a sophistication and attention to detail that you don’t find in most cycling apparel, especially at this price range. Incorporating compressive fabric, an 8-panel design, and open mesh bib-straps, the Evolution Pro is Sugoi’s best hot-weather bib short.

Like any decent bib short, Evolution bib shorts are made with stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric. What sets them apart, however, is EvoPlus fabric. This proprietary fabric is slightly compressive. That means it supports your muscles to reduce power-robbing shock and vibration. The Evolution Pro also features Mobil Mesh bib straps to provide support without inhibiting airflow through the bibs. Evolution bib shorts are made with eight panels for a perfect fit. Flatlock stitching is used throughout the bibs to reduce chafing and irritation. The Evolution also gets Sugoi’s RC Pro chamois to manage moisture, reduce pressure on your soft tissues, and move your weight to your sit bones.

  • Compressive EvoPlus fabric
  • Mobil Mesh bib straps
  • 8-panel construction
  • Flatlock stitching
  • RC Pro chamois

Bad luck with this for me

  • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

I liked this bib in many ways. But the one time I used it for a 3 hour ride the stitching around the chamois became quite a pain. The kind of thing you don't want to try again. I'm not saying the product is not good, but Sugoi could take a look at that stitching.

Love Sugoi

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times
  • Fit: True to size
  • Size Bought: Large

For the price it's the best bib I own. With Sugoi I always feel like I get more than I payed for.

My husband loves these bibs

    Every year for his birthday I buy my husband some new bike gear. He rides probably 100+ miles per week during the warmer months. In the past, he has really liked the Castellis and the Gores.. I think these are the new favorites. Good chamois, gripping legs, comfortable fit when bent over.

    Sizing runs LARGE, not small

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
    • Fit: Runs large
    • Size Bought: XL

    I've worn Sugoi bibs and tights for years. Every one of them has been XL, so I assumed I needed XL for this model.

    Nope! These are huge. Some reviewers have noted these as "runs small." I have no idea what they're talking about.

    It seems to have more to do with the material than the cut. The overall fit is similar to other Sugoi bibs (e.g the RS Pro), but the shorts and bib straps are super stretchy - not nearly as compressive as I'm used to with other Sugoi models. I sent them back for a size L, so will see how that goes.

    Giving them 4 stars because they seem pretty sweet otherwise. Nice chamois, and the material is super comfy despite the excessive stretchiness. Bummer that the sizing isn't consistent with other Sugoi kit.

    Additionally, I discovered that Backcountry no longer provides free shipping for a size swap. Double bummer!

    Thanks for the review Early! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

    Nice bib shorts for the price.

    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: large

    I got these on a great sale and have been very happy with them. The chamois is comfortable. The length of the shorts is a bit shorter than my other brands. They will slide up a little bit, there are no gel grippers. But they stay comfortable and do not bunch. I got the kit for under $100. I am happy with it for that price it's great!

    Great bib!

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    • Size Bought: XL

    I was in the need for a new bib and I went with the Sugoi Evo - AND love it! I've since purchased another Sugoi Evo (in white/red) because the fit is great and the chamois is excellent. The bib size is close to being true, but slightly on the smaller side - I usually wear a L but ended up buying the XL due to reviews and don't regret it.

    Excellent bibs

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Large

    The leg length runs a bit shorter than my Garneau and Castelli's. I've worn these Evo bibs on the cross bike and are awesome for comfort while tackling bumpy terrain. Great bibs for the price as well!!!! I have a 33" waist.

    Great bibs at stupid cheap price

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
    • Fit: True to size
    • Size Bought: Medium

    I've always been a guy who preferred shorts over bibs. I like the ability to pee freely, and to not be wrapped like a spandex burrito. However, I started to have issues with my old standard shorts. They would find themselves creeping down my back when I'd start to get sweaty. My goal is to be a cyclist, not a plumber, so showing crack is not on my list of things to do on a bike (though it makes someone drafting behind me become really uncomfortable!)

    I decided to get into the bib world and tried a few to start with. The PI bib short was first and I sent it back FAST. I'm not a big dude at all. 68kg soaking wet and the body of an eastern european 12 year old gymnast. But the PI in a medium strangled all my bits to the point where I was beet red.

    A few other brands and makes came and went, but then a chat session at CC had the rep recommending these bib shorts. Upon receiving them, I was struck by a few things. First, the material is thicker in a way than others. Not heat-stroke inducing thickness, just thicker feeling. It has almost a woven feel to it instead of a flat sheen. Second, the leg bands. I know some people prefer to have a firm stranglehold on their thighs with their leg bands as though a tiny, muscular baby were choking their legs with each pedal stroke. However, I like have a smooth, firm grip that doesn't make me think about it. In this case, the wide, non-grippy leg bands do a GREAT job of holding the shorts where they should be. Perhaps if you have quads that would make Jack Lalanne proud, you might find these riding around on you. For my feminine male body, these work perfectly.

    Colors - I got the red "pro" version. The difference between the "pro" and regular versions is that the "pro" versions are available in red or blue accents to "match" most pro style kits. I have to admit, it's why I chose to go with the pro version as my kit is red (and yellow - seriously, who designed my kit - the hamburgler?). However, the red on these bibs is RED. VERY red. That's okay - most kits that use red use, well, red. In my case, the Hamburgler was somewhat colorblind and infused an orange hue into the red. So...the bibs and the jersey don't quite match, but that's okay. For race day, I put on my team's bibs which feel about as high quality as a third-hand kia.

    If you can't tell, I do dig these bibs. They're a great fit. I'm a medium in everything I wear (5'10", 150lbs) and these fit perfectly. I don't have numbness issues, I've never gotten a saddle sore while wearing them, the bibs hit in just the right places and are very resilient. Overall, they're a complete win.

    Yes, the Sugoi logo could peel off after a few washings, but I don't really care. Until Sugoi sponsors me (are you listening Sugoi - I take sponsorship deals!), I don't really care if their name peels off. That being said, I've washed mine 30+ times already and haven't had a bit of peeling yet.

    If you need a pair of bibs that fit well, stay where they're supposed to, give you relatively easy access to your junk for mid-ride weight reductions, and the ability to feel said junk after 150 miles in the saddle, these are a great choice. Buy them and enjoy. Unless you're on my racing team, then only buy the pure black ones.

    Dude great review you have me LMAO with your humor!

    And with that review, I purchased these bibs. 'Nuff said.

    Excellent Bib Short

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times
    • Fit: Runs small
    • Size Bought: bib short XL

    I have been a die hard Castelli user for many years. I decided to try Sugoi....and I'm glad I did. Quality is on par with Castelli (which is excellent). Fit, like Castelli, runs small. I typically wear XL jersey and shorts in Castelli. I ordered Large bibshort which was on the border of too small. Sent back and got the XL...perfection. Chamois is very high quality and is very comfy on long rides, 40-50+ miles. Jersey seemed to be a little larger cut than Castelli, so size Large worked fine. I highly recommend this brand and hope this review helps you make an informed buying decision. Mike Nelson was a great help in the return process as well. Cheers!!!
