Sugoi pulled out all the stops with their RSE Bib Short. Aggressive styling, ultra-comfortable bib straps, and their most advanced chamois. No comfort feature is overlooked with these; they’ve even eliminated an inseam for reduced bulk! There’s nothing to hinder you here, no reasons to worry about anything other than your ride. Comfortable and fast: what a combo.

Susan says: I was lucky enough to receive a pair of these bib to test over the winter. I was very impressed. To start, the strap placement is good. Although the buckle seemed a little high on the chest when I first put it on, once I was riding I didn't notice it at all. The feel of the fabric is very smooth, and the stitch lines are flattering.

Although my current measurements put me square in a Sugoi size small, I wear a medium in the RS Short (The RS is too snug at the hip in the small). Before testing, I was given the impression that the RSE would be more compressive than the RS, so it was recommended to me that I test a M in the RSE as well. I agree that the RSE has more compressive fabric than the RS , but the overall cut of the RSE seems bigger. As well, the leg hole openings seem larger on the RSE than the RS, so that they didn't quite lay flush against my skin.

To take advantage of the compressiveness and get a better fit on the leg grippers, I think the small would be a more appropriate size for me. So, while I think the original RS runs a little small compared to the size chart, the RSE seems true to the size chart.

The chamois rocks. It was completely comfortable from the moment I put it on. So comfortable, in fact, that I forgot I was test-wearing a new short. The chamois is dense where needed, and completely unobtrusive and non-bulky where not. The stitch edge was smooth and caused zero discomfort.

My maiden voyage in this short was 55 miles. I'm sure I could have ridden another 55 and been just as comfortable as when I started. Based on this experience, I'll have no hesitation recommending these bibs, or the RSE short, to TeamEstrogen.com's customers!

Fantastic for the sit bones!

(Casual/ Recreational) December 6, 2010

I bought these when I read another review which said that the padding was good for the sit bones. I ride on the back on a tandem in a fairly upright position and have always suffered from sore sit bones - until I got these! My first ride wearing them was 45 miles on the back of the tandem in comfort that I have never before known. The fabric is extremely nice on your skin and the bibs and buckle are well placed for me. They are great in warm and humid weather and really are the most comfortable bottoms I have ever ridden in. Great when I go on my single bike too!

Service comments: 10/10 for the customer service from Team Estrogen, as always - great advice, prompt delivery, and exciting, functional, good looking gear.

Pros
  • Good Padding
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Breathable

Alright, already, I tried bibs!

(Avid Cyclist) September 16, 2010

Chamois is fabulous -- great padding for sit-bones, no pressure on sensitive spot, and ventilation. Nice! Rides that usually have me aching and/or numb are now perfectly comfortable. A comfy tush is a happy tush.

Service comments: Didn't know you were so close -- almost instant delivery!

Pros
  • Breathable
  • Straps stay put
  • Perfect chamois
  • Comfortable
  • Good Fit
  • Good Padding
Cons
  • Buckle is odd but works
  • Straps flatten chest
Uses
  • Road Biking
  • Warm Weather

my favorite bibs

(Avid Cyclist) June 20, 2010

The Sugoi RSE bibs are my preferred kit for any length ride but especially for centuries. I like Sugoi's supportive compression fabric and chamois over 2 top-brand competitors' bibs (of similar price). My Sugoi's also are holding up better to repeated use/washing than the competitors. The only thing I'd change is the chest buckle which I leave unlatched and it does not bother me with the straps then on outer chest. These are not the only high-end bibs with a center buckle so that's clearly something that some women prefer. Last, having had 2 pr of Sugoi RS shorts before converting to bibs, I also prefer the new chamois in the RSE.

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