Review: Sugoi RS Pro Jersey

An ideal jersey to work up a sweat in, Sugoi’s RS Pro jersey gives great performance at a reasonable price.


Sneak Peek: Rapha Extends its Women’s Range

Stuffed full of technical wizardry, the Sugoi RS Pro jersey is a seriously advanced bit of kit at an unexpectedly reasonable price.

Designed to be worn in hot temperatures, I haven’t had many opportunities to try it out in its ideal conditions this summer, but instead have often worn it on high-intensity training sessions, and have been impressed at how it’s kept me fresh.

The Sugoi RS Pro jersey is cut to provide plenty of comfort when down on the drops, and it’s nice and long at the back. There are lots of mesh panels strategically placed around the shoulders and arms and I never found myself overheating in it.

It’s made from Gobi 3.0 fabric, which is where Sugoi’s magic comes into play. It’s an ultra-light polyester microfibre knit in a diamond-shaped structure to provide ‘superior moisture management along with mesh-like breathability and ventilation with exceptional non-transparent coverage’, and as far as breathability and comfort goes, it certainly works.

There are three jersey pockets on the rear that aren’t the largest I’ve seen, plus a zipped section on the middle pocket, which is tricky to reach and open while in the saddle. The only other snag with the jersey is the full-length zip would often stick, but other than the zips, there’s nothing to find fault with here.


–        Great quality for the price

–        Excellent breathability

–        Good contoured fit


–        Zip sticks

–        Rear security pocket tricky to access

Price: £79.99, available from Sugoi
