When the weather is wet or cold, or both, you need your whole legs covered in something warm and sturdy to protect them from the elements. The full-length Pace Super-Roubaix Windproof bib-tights from dhb do just that.
The dhb legwear range employs various fabric types, but the Pace Super-Roubaix tights use the a relatively heavier option - measuring 245g/m2 - meaning they’re thick enough to be warm on the bike, but not too thick to restrict your pedalling.
Three-quarter tights are perfect for autumn and spring when you want your knees covered but not the whole of your legs, and the new range from dhb has a couple of options worth considering.
For some riders, it may be getting too late in the year to think about exposed legs, but if you’re still road-racing, or getting ready for ‘cross, it’s worth having a look at the new Pace Roubaix bib-shorts from dhb.
A soft shell jacket for 70 quid? You’re suspicious… but you needn’t be. This new model in the dhb lineup is a high-quality option for keeping you warm in the winter, and it comes at an amazing price.
A brand new model in dhb’s lineup, the Momentum is quite a heavy-duty winter workhorse jersey with some useful features.
It’s made from a fleecy polyester that provides plenty of insulation. It’s not windproof (you need dhb’s Windslam jersey for that) but it’s thick and warm – certainly an autumn/winter weight rather than one for the summer evenings. The main fabric is reasonably stretchy, especially widthwise, while waffle fleece panels – the white bits – provide more give and extra breathability.
DHB have completely overhauled their clothing range for winter 2011, essentially going back and designing a whole line-up of new products that includes several superfine merino wool base layers.
