Sugoi's Versa jacket is genuinely exciting. It's a mainstay of their 'outerwear' collection, and lives up to its billing. This updated version is wind and water resistant, and beautifully cut specifically for women. Its lightweight woven ripstop fabric is light enough to take on any ride just in case, and its colour makes it as visible as anything out there.
Most ingenious - and what really makes it stand out - is that its sleeves detach using simple, elegant magnetic strips to leave you with a gilet for when you start to warm up. With its fleecy collar, lightweight mesh over the back of the shoulders for extra breathability and plenty of reflective 3M material, it's the ultimate versatile technical jacket/gilet combo.

At VeloVixen, we're huge fans of Sugoi - our Founder Liz used Sugoi shorts for most of our year cycling through South and North America in 2010, washed them countless times, put them through hell and still they bounced back wonderfully. And they stayed comfortable!
For years, hard-core endurance athletes have known Sugoi as a manufacturer of some of the best and most durable clothing in endurance sports. Sugoi means "incredible" in Japanese, and for more than 25 years they've been working diligently to live up to their name.
Sugoi's own journey began when bicycle racer David Hollands and Carol Prantner, a fashion student, founded the company in 1987 in a Vancouver basement. Their first product was bike shorts, which they made to address the short supply of high quality, home grown technical cycling kit in Canada. These humble shorts set the ball rolling for Sugoi's ethic of innovation and excellence. Sugoi quickly earned an almost cult-following among athletes seeking the best performing, best-looking cycling available.
Today, Sugoi has grown into a truly international brand. In 2011, they stepped on to the world stage, with major pro-cycling sponsorships. 25 years after it started, Sugoi is unrecognisably larger - but they're still based in Vancouver and stay true to their original ethos and commitment to quality. We love 'em.
