No matter what main body fabric is used to make a pair of cycling shorts, seams will cause chafing. In redesigning its legendary Women’s RS Pro Shorts, Sugoi sought to keep seams away from your body. The Sugoi Women's RS Pro Shorts feature pro-level fit and wind-cheating fabrics to remove the hurt from a long ride.
Sugoi's RS Pro shorts were constructed from Ultra Aero fabric. This material has been knit with a dimensionally sculpted surface. What is a sculpted surface to be exact? Well, think of a golf ball. The dimples on the surface help create less friction as it flies through the air. In a similar manner, the Ultra Aero has received "dimples" on its surface so that it is more aerodynamic. The fabric's stretch also lightly compresses the muscles, which helps to reduce fatigue induced by vibration from rough roads. Ultra Aero also wicks perspiration from your skin to keep you cool and dry for the duration of your ride.
The shorts feature paneling that is designed to move with you while in the riding position. All seams have been given flatlock stitching to minimize chafing, and the absence of an inner thigh seam reduces chafing against the saddle. A wide, yoga-inspired waistband holds the shorts comfortably in place, and the carefully designed leg opening with silicone printed inner tape and aero band provides a smoother fit than conventional gripper-style leg openings.
Finishing the shorts is Sugoi's Formula FX chamois. This seamless, antibacterial chamois ensures hours of endless comfort in the saddle.
