Top of the heap.
At the head of Sugoi's already impressive line of women's jerseys, you'll find the RSE. Having applied every trick in Sugoi's extensive (proverbial) book, the RSE does everything you'd want a cycling jersey to do, and some things you haven't even thought of.
Leading the charge is Sugoi's new REVO fabric. This material was developed with a micro-filament linear knit, which essentially means that it increases stretch and the net amount of surface area. This enhanced surface area results in a faster transfer of moisture from the skin, where it's distributed to the RSE's exterior for rapid evaporation. However, not to be a one-trick-pony, the aforementioned knit also lends itself to a heightened sense of breathability and comfort.
Adding to this design principle, Sugoi implemented its Zone construction. This includes mesh inserts that add a comfortable stretch and friction free fit, along with an additional source of increased airflow. Also, this system includes Vector Stretch panels that actually increase air circulation throughout the jersey.
In terms of fit, Sugoi cut the jersey on a contour in order to replicate the body's position throughout the movements of cycling. Accordingly, we find a minimally seamed construction where the back sleeves and shoulder are cut from one piece. In fact, the attachment to the front panel occurs near the clavicle and ribs. So, there's more of a contour over the back, shoulders, and sleeves where shaping and movement actually occur. And to secure this fit, Sugoi placed its compression bands at the sleeves and hem in order to provide a secure grip without inhibiting circulation or movement.
The front of the RSE features a full-length zip for on-the-fly heat dumps, and three ample rear pockets for storage of your riding essentials. Additionally, these have been complemented by a secure zip pocket for storing your cash, cards, or electronics. And to increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions, Sugoi placed 3M reflective elements throughout the jersey.
The Sugoi Women's RSE Jersey is available in the color White and in sizes Small, Medium, and Large.
