The Sugoi RSX is No Longer Available as of June, 2017Keep reading to hear what we thought of the now discontinued RSX. It appears that most retailers have sold out of the RSX that we've tested but a bib liner version called the RSX suspension is still being produced with the whopping price tag of $200.
The RSX Short by Sugoi was the most anticipated short by our testers, mostly because the enormous price tag led us to believe it would be awesome. At $180, this is the most expensive short we tested, which is $55 more expensive than the next most expensive short. We figured that a short this expensive would have some mind blowing features that would set itself way above all the competition. Sadly, this was not the case. The RSX scored poorly in most of our categories except for comfort, where it took the top score. The RSX earns such a high score for comfort because of the Formula FX chamois which is part of its inner short. This foam chamois is the thickest, most dense chamois in our review and is worthy of high end road shorts. Overall, we recommend taking a look at one of the other shorts in our review, especially some of our award winners like the Pearl Izumi Elevate, Dakine Boundary, or Zoic Ether, before you drop huge money on this short.
