These wheels are gorgeous. Workmanship and manufacturing fit & finish is top-notch, what you would expect of Dura-Ace. Wheels arrived perfectly true with even spoke tension.
Low profile box-section rims might not be as fashionable as deep section wheels, but they are light, feel solid and look beautiful.

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I've been using Sugoi RS Pro bibs now for a couple of decades. The chamois is excellent, these are my workhorse go-to short. Excellent durability, and looks good, very comfortable.

Last year's edition of this short had some problems with the cuff, which used a thin silicone gripper which caused some chaffing. They've fixed that for this year with a wider cuff with silicone dots.

I find these shorts a little on the short side - about 1" shorter than my other shorts. I'm 6' tall and 172lbs, right on the upper end of size L. Size XL is too big (baggy in the thighs) but I'd prefer the XL sizing length.

Overall a good short, but not a big fan of the length. Glad to see that they're still innovating, but hope that Sugoi fixes the length issue on the next rendition.

Sugoi has always been my go-to short, but this is the first time for me with this newer model.

First impression: Good fit with the leg length being a little longer than previous models. I like the cut, and they feel great with every seam in the right place.

I found the shorts a bit slippy on my saddle, which I haven't experienced with any other short. Now that I've ridden with them about 10 times, it's improving (less slippy).

In comparison to the older style Formula FX shammy, these seem to be improved with no seams.
I don't know why another reviewer didn't like the leg grippers, they work fine for me.
Still comfortable near the end of a long ride.

I really like the design and fit of this jersey. It has a classy look, with the red being a little more muted than the photo. Air flows nicely through the fabric.

The rear pockets are a little smaller than my other jerseys, which makes it easy to get things out.

I was a little surprised by the stitching quality around the zipper, which was a little sloppy.

I used the sizing chart to measure my hand, which indicated that I was on the low side of an XL. When the gloves arrived, the XL was far too small, however the XXL fit perfectly. Advice to buyers: order the next size up (the sizing chart appears to be incorrect).

I'm very pleased with the quality of these gloves, however I can't speak to how well they work since I haven't used them yet.

This is my all-time favourite short, mostly due to the chamois and fit. The chamois they call "Formula FX" is just awesome - I've tried lots of shorts, and none have had a chamois as good as this one. The fit is fantastic, I love the shape and stretch of the fabric. These have been very durable as I've used them avidly for a few years.

I've had these shorts for about 2 months now and am very disappointed. The shorts bleed colour even after multiple washes. The colour bleed is not noticeable when washing, but is enough to turn my white saddle brown.

Regarding fit: The shorts are too short so that they ride up and don't insulate the knee adequately. The lower front part below the knee pulls away from the leg when the knee is flexed, allowing cold air to enter over the patellar tendon.
