It's all about priorities.
Sugoi didn't design the RSE to get people's attention; it designed the RSE to get you from the start to the finish in comfort. Sure, there are those who opt for out-and-out flash, but you can leave the gaudy prints to them. Let the other guys get the attention during the ride — you can wait until you're standing on the podium.
For the construction of the RSE shorts, Sugoi used its lightweight and highly breathable Shield fabric, which is comprised of a sophisticated blend of polyester and spandex. Together, a four-way stretch is achieved in order to provide a complete freedom of movement. However, Shield's most important benefit comes in the form of moisture management. This material is highly effective at pulling moisture away from the skin, and then transporting it to the quick-drying surface of the material. The stretchable quality of the material ensures that RSE will conform to your body throughout the ride. Furthermore, through the use of a 10-panel design, the shorts have been formed to maximize your freedom of motion. Additionally, the RSE features 1-1/4in compressive leg bands at the lower hem, which negate the need for silicone grippers.
At the chamois, the RSE employs 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. Further reducing friction, the FXE surface is layered with the antimicrobial synthetic, Meryl Skinlife. Additionally, the insert's four-way stretch ensures that its side panels move with the body, further reducing chafing.
Sugoi RSE Shorts are available in five sizes, from Small to XX-Large, and in the color Black.
