They all played for each other. Just the way they showed the commitment was tremendous. There is still a long way to go to keep us at the top
South Africa conceded only 14 points in its matches at the tournament, reaching the final with a 14-0 win over 2010 and 2012 tournament champions Samoa.
Afterwards, a jubilant South Africa Sevens coach, Neil Powell said: "It was very intense and what a gutsy performance that was from the guys.
"They all played for each other. Just the way they showed the commitment was tremendous. There is still a long way to go to keep us at the top."
Under the guidance of Powell, who took over the coaching duties from long-serving Paul Treu at the beginning of the season, South Africa have now reached three Cup Finals in a row this season, winning titles in Port Elizabeth and Las Vegas.
South Africa's victory lifted it to a one-point lead over New Zealand on overall standings after four of nine rounds.
The next tournament is in New Zealand on 7th-8th February.
