Souke Sports – Where Cycling Gear Meets Fashion

Souke Sports is a cycling brand that design and manufacture cycling clothing & accessories for cyclists looking for good quality gear and a degree of exclusivity.

The brand was founded in 2005 and whilst it isn’t currently well-known in the UK, they are more established in many countries around the World. Souke Sports focus on quality and design for cyclists, runners, triathletes and for yoga.

Products are designed around ergonomic fit, comfort and durability. Garments are made from soft-feel fabrics and are quick-dry, making them practical and comfortable to wear when cycling. I’ve tested their cycling gear over the past few months and can attest to the comfort, fit and durability.

I’ve listed some promotional prices within this review as I found some great discounts but regardless of this, Souke prices are exceptionally reasonable compared to many other cycling clothing brands. Souke clothing is available direct from the Souke Sports website or via their shop on Amazon.

The origins of the Souke brand dates back to 2005 when the Founder developed a keen interest in fashion design, having spent a number of years working across the World with some key fashion brands. In 2007, he went to Switzerland on holiday, where he cycled around the Swiss Alps, enjoying the beauty and tranquillity. This inspired him to develop his first range of cycling and yoga clothing. Designed from a deep love of nature and fashion, the early products were only available to close friends and family. Eventually, the demand became greater than his initial expectations and so Souke Sports was born.

The word “SOUKE” comes from a combination of words. The letters SO stands for mountains & highways., UK represents the United Kingdom for its Royal heritage and cultural values, and the E comes from the marketplace of eCommerce.

Souke Sports Cycling Clothing Review

I’ve tested the Souke Sports cycling gear over the past few months and can attest to the comfort, fit and durability. This is a real review based on my own personal experience and is not a paid promotion.

The Souke Sports cycling range consists of base layers, short sleeve and long sleeve jerseys and cycling jackets. The bottom half of the range includes underwear, shorts, bib shorts and tights, plus leggings, pants and winter trousers, which are currently one of Amazon’s best selling products. To complete the range, Souke also offer arm sleeves, socks, half finger and full finger gloves.

Souke Sports Cycling Jacket Review

This Souke Sports mens cycling jacket is intended for winter use and as such is fleece-lined, windproof and water repellent.

The jacket was warm in temperatures around 5 to 10 degrees when tested and a comfortable fit during the review. As with all good winter cycling jackets, Souke has included a high quality zip, extended cuffs, reflective strips and 3 rear pockets.

Souke claim that the jacket is breathable and unless you’re a clothing technician, that’s going to be hard to prove. However, on the test rides, I didn’t over-heat and so this bodes well. The jacket is made with 3 layers of composite materials, an outer breathable fabric provides good wicking functionality, wind protection and water repellent. The soft fleece-lined inner layer should keep you warm through the winter cycling months.

The jacket is made from a mid-weight brushed stretch fabric and incorporates 3 rear pockets for the usual stuff. The design is race cut, ensuring the lower back remains covered in tucked riding positions. It is a tight fit but without feeling too tight, which is of course dependent on the size chosen and your body shape.

Souke Sports Cycling Jersey Review

The Souke Sports range of cycling jerseys is quite different from other cycling brands, with a bit of a marmite feel. Some of the designs and colours are fantastic, whereas others feel quite unusual. The beauty of this is that there is definitely something for everyone, men & women, and there seeing another cyclist wearing the same jersey is probably unlikely.

The pro cycling jersey is made from a very soft-feel Italian fabric, making it light and almost a second skin, perfect for cycling. I found the top to be very comfortable and breathable enough to keep me warm but also enable moisture wicking. It’s made from a stretch material, facilitating ease of movement when cycling and comfortable to wear.

Souke Sports recommend selecting a size 1 or 2 sizes bigger than you would normally but in my experience, I would suggest selecting at least 2, or even 3, sizes larger. Sizing is my only disappointment with the Souke Sports products.

The jersey has a silicon waist gripper which helps to keep the jersey from riding up you ride. The front of the jersey has a full zip which felt of good quality and the rear includes 3 pockets.

Souke Sports Mens Cycling Shorts Review

The Souke Sports range of cycling shorts is quite extensive and includes standard cycling shorts for men and women plus bib shorts for extra comfort.

The shorts are made from good quality fabric, made up of 80% nylon and 20% spandex, like most cycling shorts. Similar to the jerseys, the shorts are breathable, stretchable, durable and lightweight, ensuring they are practical and comfortable to wear.

The seat padding is made up of 6 layers of high density [90kg/m3] memory foam, which should cope comfortably with a 100km ride. The leg opener includes a good silica gel gripper with good width [8-9 cm] and good grip to ensure no fabric movement during the ride.

The shorts also come with a reflective design, which is an additional safety feature for low-light or night cycling. The waist has an extra width on the front side of the waist band to help ease the pressure of your waist during the ride, especially helpful during the winter months!

Souke Sports Cycling Gloves Review

The Souke Sports cycling gloves are excellent value for money and unlike the jerseys, they are a standard fit so no need to go for a bigger size.

The gloves are made from good quality fabrics, 87% nylon & 13% spandex on the upper with the palm being made of 60% nylon & 40% pu plus a solid 5mm foam padding for comfort over longer rides. This 5mm padding in the palms of the gloves offers shock absorption and impact resistance, reducing fatigue and aiding well-being.

Souke Sports Winter Cycling Trousers Review

Whilst there is no reason that these winter trousers cannot be used for cycling, they are probably more suited to hiking and walking. However, as they are one of Amazon’s best sellers, I thought it’d be worth including them in this review.

The trousers are made up of a double fabric layer for extra warmth and protection. They are claimed to be windproof but I haven’t had the opportunity to test them in any strong wind yet. They are however, soft and very comfortable.

Made from 100% polyester, these sports trousers have mesh zipper pockets on the outer thighs and at the back of the waist, which can be opened when you exercise to help with ventilation and to reduce sweating.
