3.6 stars 3.6 for 2013 RS Knicker - CLOSEOUT by Sugoi (9 reviews)

2.0 stars 2.0

Poor durability ruins this knicker

(Avid Cyclist) February 12, 2014

These knickers are very nice looking and fit well. I have a pair of Sugoi shorts in which the waistband unraveled, so I purchased these on sale with the knowledge that they might not be sturdy enough for more than a season or two of riding. Unfortunately, I did not inspect the seams of these knickers carefully upon receipt, and noticed after a single short ride that the outer stitching for the chamois in both the front and rear was beginning to unravel. Because of the poor construction, even on sale these aren't a good value.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Good Fit
Cons
  • Weak Seams
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Beware - stitching

(Avid Cyclist) February 10, 2014

Team Estrogen is terrific to buy from, and it's not there fault, but the Sugoi tights have lowered their quality. I just brought the RS tights and washed it once, and the stitching is already undone. I was going to buy more RS tights, but now I'm reconsidering. It's too bad.

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Weak Seams
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Length: Feels true to length

Some good, some not so good

(Avid Cyclist) January 11, 2014

I road bike 2-3 times a week, and mountain bike 1-2 times a week. I use the shorts for both.
Female shaped padding is good. We are all used to wearing men's stuff and making it work. These are actually designed for women. How refreshing!
Quality seems good
Overall fit is about one size small.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
  • Durable
  • Good Padding
  • Waist Shape
Cons
  • Poor Fit
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels too short

Sugoi RS Knickers

(Competitive Cyclist) December 22, 2013

Sizing - 3 stars. I originally ordered them in size small which is my normal size, however I returned them for a medium. Otherwise I was afraid I would rip the stitching in the waist - the stitching didn't give a lot.

Waist - 5 stars for the comfortable waist. It's one of those wide yoga-style waists.

Rise - 5 stars for the rise. It's NOT one of those low rise styles that aren't designed for a cycling position.

Padding - 1 star for the padding. I really don't need 1/4" of padding. It's not the padding that adds comfort - it's the correct saddle. So it does feel like a thick, stiff diaper. And honestly, I think I have to lower my saddle slightly to accommodate the thickness!

Padding position - 5 stars. It's positioned correctly. In other words, it's not covering my entire backside, but rather the area that meets the saddle.

Fabric & Seams - 3 stars. While it feels good and it's quick drying I don't think it's very sturdy and I don't expect them to last more than one season. It will pick very easy so keep anything with velcro on it away. The seams are flat, however, the decorative zigzag stiching will also pick very easy.

Despite the few things that could use some slight improvement, I'm overall pleased and would buy another pair.

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Comfortable
  • Dries Quickly
Cons
  • Too Much Padding
Uses
  • Long Rides
  • Mountain Biking
  • Road Biking
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels true to length

See-through cycling shorts?

(Avid Cyclist) December 11, 2013

I've returned it. It's possible to see right through the material. I was very disappointed because I have several other Sugoi shorts and they are great.

Pros
  • Good Fit
Cons
Uses
  • Waist: Feels true to size
  • Length: Feels true to length

Snug but I like them

(Avid Cyclist) June 11, 2013

I like these knickers. The material is very thin (I was worried that maybe they were too sheer, but I've been assured that they are not from those riding behind me). I do like the lightweight material on those days that it starts out on the cool side but then warms up. My only complaint is that the waist area is hard to pull on (that's why I dropped them to 4 stars). Once they are on, though, they are comfortable

Pros
  • Comfortable
  • Good Padding
  • Breathable
Cons
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather
  • Long Rides
  • Waist: Feels too small
  • Length: Feels true to length

I only wear these knickers!

(Avid Cyclist) June 6, 2013

I have only worn these knickers for the past two years. The chamois is comfortable! I just did a 60 mile ride last Sunday. I like the compression. The knicker is light weight and breaths well. These are my favorite!
