Sugoi RS Zap jacket review

Sugoi's RS Zap jacket aims to combine high visibility with technical performance

Cycling Weekly Verdict

It’s interesting to see Sugoi trying to bridge the needs of commuters and sporting cyclists by creating a product such as the RS Zap. It’ll certainly get you seen at night when out riding but I’m not convinced it offers enough technical benefits, especially ventilation, to be used for hard training.

The RS Zap jacket is part of Sugoi’s Zap clothing range – products with a special emphasis on reflectivity and safety.

Rather than making parts of the jacket reflective, Sugoi has taken a far more novel approach and instead made the whole thing reflective.
