Renata says: I think this is a great riding short. I like the feel and firmness of the lightweight Ultra Aero fabric; the dense pad for long rides; the longer, comfortable, and looser leg openings; and the slightly higher rise waistband.

Just a little warning; I had to be really careful putting it on and taking it off because the stitching around the waistband is not super stretchy. I thought it was too small at first, but I shimmied it up really carefully, and it felt fabulous once I got it on.

According to the sizing chart, I should be in the extra-small, as my hips are 35.5 inches, but the size small fits me well, so if you are between sizes I would go up in size.

Beautiful fitting shorts

(Avid Cyclist) June 27, 2014

These shorts fit very well and true to size but the inner seams are very rough and one rides along the sit bone and chafes. I am hoping with washing it will soften. I have other Sugoi shorts that I love and they have a much finer seam so try some different shorts.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Chafes
  • Rough Inner Seams
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Runs Small

(Avid Cyclist) June 4, 2014

I wanted to review these to say that the size chart is not accurate in my opinion. They run small. Order the next bigger size. I made the mistake or ordering too small and not figuring that out until too late, but that is my fault. The seems are a bit weak and pull easily. The pad is great. After I lost a few pounds, as I do at the beginning of cycling season, they did fit better. All in all good shorts.

Pros
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Poor Fit
  • Weak Seams
Uses
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels true to length

Great everyday cycle shorts

(Avid Cyclist) January 22, 2013

Love Sugoi, they are always great fabric and comfortable Chamois. Only thing i have noticed with these shorts is that they are slightly lower cut at the waist and the front of the waistband tends to roll down a bit during the ride.

Pros
  • Durable
  • Good Fit
  • Comfortable
  • Breathable
Cons
Uses
  • All Rides
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking

Great shorts

(Avid Cyclist) September 16, 2012

I love these shorts. The chamois is extremely comfortable; protective yet disappears so you don't feel like you're riding on a big, bulky pad. I also love the wide waistband and the fact that the leg grippers are a little looser so my legs don't look like sausages. In general these shorts are very flattering.

Pros
  • Flattering
  • Comfortable
  • Good Padding
  • Good Fit
Cons
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Warm Weather
  • Road Biking

Runs small

(Avid Cyclist) July 3, 2012

These run smaller than the other Sugoi shorts I own (Evolution). The fabric is not very forgiving, but it is very supportive. I had to wriggle them on carefully because the seams don't seem very strong. Once on they feel great, however, the chamois is very stiff and chaffed horribly after about 20 miles right where the seam of the chamois is on the inside of my thigh. I think this is bacause the chamois material is stiffer than most other brands and because they were too small. I think these would be a keeper if I could try them in a large. Be sure to order up due to the fabric. I also think the leg grippers are a must. I know some brands have gotten away from the leg grippers but I have to have them to keep the legs from riding up.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Supportive
  • Dries Quickly
Cons
  • Weak Seams
  • Chafes
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels true to length
