Sugoi RSE Men's Bib Shorts $229.95
Your race-day secret.
The simple aesthetic of the Sugoi RSE Bib Shorts let their actions do the talking. That's key for those of you who value function over flash. Thanks to breathable, slightly compressive fabrics, they're built to keep you comfortable for the long haul. Ditto for the chamois, which is about as high-tech as inserts get, even though you wouldn't know from looking at its sleek exterior. The RSE has been a staple for a while now, and this generation only serves to cement that reputation.
For the construction of the RSE bib shorts, Sugoi used its lightweight and highly breathable Shield. Shield is comprised of a proprietary blend, which provides a four-way stretch, for a complete freedom of movement. However, Shield's largest benefit comes in the form of moisture management. This material is highly effective at pulling moisture away from the skin and transporting it to the quick-drying surface of the material. So, through its use, this fabric will keep you comfortable on your longest rides.
As for fit, the stretchable quality of the material ensures that RSE will conform to your body shape within the cycling position. Through the use of a ten-panel design, the bib shorts have actually been formed and shaped around the aforementioned principle. To secure the contoured fit, Sugoi placed its breathable and stable Mobil Mesh bib straps at the uppers. Additionally, the RSE features integrated silicone panels, which are lower profile and more comfortable than traditional silicone gripper strips.
At the chamois, the RSE benefits from Sugoi's top-tier FXE insert. This chamois features a welded center channel that aids in ventilation, while also contributing to pressure relief. You'll find that the entire surface of the FXE is actually seamless. Through a proprietary system of lamination, Sugoi managed to form the chamois without dropping in a single stitch. To reduce abrasion, the FXE surface is layered with the antimicrobial synthetic, Meryl Skinlife. Additionally, the inserts' four-way stretch ensures that its side panels move with the body, further reducing chafing.
The Sugoi RSE Bib Shorts are available in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in the colors Black, Black/matador, and White.
