Sugoi is famous for packing loads of useful (not gimmicky) technology into its consistently affordable offerings. Evolution bib shorts are a perfect example of how Sugoi earned this reputation. The Evolution has been (you guessed it) evolving for years, and this latest version is by far the best yet.
Like any decent bib short, Evolution bib shorts are made with stretchy, moisture-wicking fabric. What sets them apart, however, especially in this price range, is EvoPlus fabric. This proprietary fabric is slightly compressive. That means it supports your muscles to reduce power-robbing shock and vibration. 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.

For the price, this is yet another awesome bib from Sugoi. The chamois is top notch and very comfortable, even on long rides (3 to 5 hours). It's a bummer that the Sugoi logo peels off after the 1st wash, but otherwise, I would definitely buy another set of these.
