Evolution Zap Short

You've never felt particularly moved to adorn your frame with a twinkling arrangement of blinking safety lights or wear a reflective vest complete with its own light-up display, but you've lately been inspired to be a little more visible during your evening rides. Step up your reflectivity without going the way of a Christmas display in Sugoi's Evolution Zap Short. Like you, Sugoi decided to step up its visibility game recently, and it's answer was Zap.

More luminous than the tired reflective accents adorning your old shorts, Za is visible from up to 140 meters away, which gives motorists time to recognize your presence and plan accordingly. Sugoi specifically places the material on its garments in a way that silhouettes a rider's form, alerting motorists to the fact that they are approaching a human rather than an unmoving road sign or reflector. Aside from its luminescent nature, the Evolution is a versatile everyday short, supportive and breathable. It includes Sugoi's also recently upgraded RC Pro chamois, with its stretchy, breathable blend of cushioning and support for rides long or short, daytime or dusk.

"RC Pro" does not mean what it used to.

The fit on these is fine, and the fabric seems decent quality. What I am a bit disappointed with is the Chamois. I have two older (8-9 year old) Sugoi shorts with the "RC Pro" chamois. They are fantastic, and the main reason I bought these shorts. Unfortunately, this chamois in no way resembles the older version and IMO is rather inferior to it. They should have spent more energy on making the chamois work well, and less on sticking stupid looking graphics all over it. The Chamois is "OK", about on par with shorts running about $50 less. Below par for a $120 pair. Unfortunately, I don't think you can return these after you ride in them.

This is probably my 6 or 7th attempt at obtaining well made and comfortable bike shorts for long rides. Did an 80 miler followed by a 30 miler the next day.. These shorts did not disappoint. They were comfortable throughout my back-to-back ride days with out a fault. I would HIGHLY recommend these and plan on getting another in the not too distant future.

This is my forth pair of Sugoi riding shorts. I just purchased two pairs of SUGOi Evolution Zap Short - Men's and must say I love them. Very comfortable and much better than my older (5years) pairs. The padding is perfect, I love the length of the shorts just PERFECT for me. I will be probably be ordering a third pair in a size Large after I drop a few winter lbs.....
