The Clip short-sleeve jersey from DHB is not an out-and-out racing jersey, but it's ideal for training, sportives, and any time you just want to ride fast, or - as the names suggests - bowl along at a fair old clip. So while it's not something you'd wear for tootling down to the pub, it's definitely lightweight, close-fitting, and with minimal features.
Let's look at some these three key aspects in more detail.
Mmmm, new socks. Everyone likes new socks and these new Summer Socks from dhb are just the job.
Lots of cycling socks are of the ultra-thin variety. You know the ones; the section on top of your foot is so fine you can see your toes through it, and the soles are just a bit thicker. DeFeet's Air-e-ator design is like that, for example, and it shifts sweat well and keeps your feet cool...
dhb offer some incredibly good-value clothing and while £75 on a pair of bib shorts might not seem to be the bargain of the year, for the quality you get here it really is a great deal.
These are made from Fieldsensor fabric (69% nylon, 16% polyester, 15% elastane) with a slightly raised inner surface that helps shift moisture outwards to keep you feeling comfortable. It's a middling weight fabric that provides good support while the well-cut 10-panel construction makes for an excellent fit.
The rain has stopped, the sun is shining, and here at road.cc towers it feels like spring might - just might - be in the air... enter the Pace Roubaix arm-warmers from dhb. When it's time to think about what to wear on rides that don't call for full winter gear arm warmers should be on your mind.
The Merino wool base layers from dhb come in many different forms: with or without zip, high or round neck, long or short sleeve, thick or thin fabric (190g or 150g) , male or female cuts.
We reviewed a dhb Merino long-sleeve base layer back in October. http://road.cc/content/review/25150-dhb-merino-long-sleeve-zipneck-base-... That was the male version, with thicker fabric, and it had a zip.
dhb's cycling leg-wear range gives you an impressive list of options - long tights, tights or shorts, with or without bibs, with or without pads, in two fabric weights, male or female cuts - I've been testing the ladies version of the dhb Pace Roubaix Bib Tight with pad (there's a men's version too), and overall I must say I'm impressed. I've used several different brands of cycling tights over the years, and these are among the best I've ever worn.
