While it's impossible to ride year-round in some climates, we believe that enjoying as much of the changing colors of fall and the burgeoning foliage of spring from the saddle as possible is one of best reasons for riding, period. With Sugoi's Evolution MidZero Bib Tights, you'll be able to stay on the road during the last gasps of fall, the first fruits of spring, and the bright winter afternoons between them. The Evolution is singularly focused on keeping you warm. To that end, Sugoi makes use of MidZero fabric, which traps warmth and wicks moisture with its soft, brushed lining. MidZero helps you stay comfortable in dry conditions ranging down to around 35 degrees Fahrenheit, depending on your personal tolerance for cold. That's a temperature at which many of us choose to forsake the road for the indoor trainer. There are some bib tights that will keep you warm at lower temperatures, but they tend to be far pricier than the Evolution and fill a very limited niche in your gear wardrobe.

This is definitely the part of your body that will suffer most from seam friction in other bibs, but by skirting your knee, the seams of the Evolution skirt that problem. Elastic leg grips keep the seam where it's supposed to be, so it doesn't incessantly ride up as you pedal down the road.

It's path to comfort goes through three particular locales: stretch, ventilation, and--of course--cushion. Stretch and breathability are handled by a combination of ventilated foam and four-wa...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
