The dhb Sync cycling jacket is an impressive piece of kit; a full-on waterproof and windproof outer layer, giving excellent protection against the elements. In design, it's more like a jacket for hiking or hill-walking, so may well appeal to people looking for versatility - although it has a bit of an urban flava as well, so may be useful for commuters. It also looks similar to the understated jackets from brands such as Rohan aimed at stylish world travellers.
These Roubaix liner gloves from dhb add extra warmth without much bulk and a silicone palm print provides grip if you want to wear them without another pair of gloves over the top.
The lightweight nylon/elastane fabric is very stretchy so you can get a good, close fit and it offers a surprising amount of warmth when worn underneath a windproof outer pair of gloves. The brushed inner face feels really soft and comfortable against your hands and it helps move moisture outwards to keep your hands feeling dry when you start to sweat.
dhb's Extreme Winter Gloves are designed, as the name implies, to protect your hands in cold and wet weather. And they do just that.
I've used them on the bike when the temperature's been hovering between zero and five degrees and they've kept my hands very warm indeed, right down to the finger tips. I also gave the gloves the rigorous road.cc hosepipe test, and can confirm that the waterproof membrane keeps out the water.
The EQ2.5 Jacket from dhb is designed to keep you warm and dry when cycling in cold and wet weather - and it does just that, very well indeed.
For cold-weather cycling, you need to keep your feet cosy, and these merino socks from dhb do just that.
Merino wool is a natural fibre that is very soft and comfortable. More important, merino has good insulation and moisture wicking properties better in some cases than synthetic base-layer materials. Its especially good for socks because feet (along with other extremities) dont sweat much when cycling - not compared to the upper body - but can get very cold.
The Turbulence jacket from dhb (the in-house brand from on-line superstore Wiggle) is a lightweight windproof top that's an ideal outer layer for cycling on cold days, and it easily packs down small enough to stuff in your back pocket if the weather should turn balmy while you're out on your bike.
Previously on road.cc we've tested Pace Roubaix arm-warmers from dhb. Now we've got a pair of dhb Pace Roubaix leg-warmers to go with them.
When the weather it too mild for full winter cycling gear, but there's still a nip in the air, then it might be time to consider a pair of leg-warmers. In fact if you live in one of the milder parts of the country you could probably use these with no problem for most of the winter too.
