dhb have really come a long way in the few years since it was launched as a clothing brand by online retailer Wiggle, and the Blade Windslam long sleeve jersey is a fine example of how well designed and keenly priced their clothing is.
An Italian Lombardia 235g Roubaix fabric is used in the construction of the jersey which has a remarkably soft feel next to the skin. To live up to its Windslam name there's a windproof membrane on the chest and outer arms panels so that the part of you facing into the wind is well protected.
The dhb Aeron Pro Bib V2 bib shorts are a higher specced tweak of the Aeron Race I have also reviewed. dhb's shorts are frequently good value for money for the levels of comfort and performance they offer, and I had high hopes that the V2's might be just the ticket for long days out on the bike.
This dhb Merino Roundneck base layer is very good indeed for most types of cold-weather riding.
I've been testing the short-sleeve round-neck version. Other merino options from dhb include versions with long sleeves and with long sleeves and a high, zipped neck. The vests are also available in two fabric thicknesses (M 150 and M 190, the numbers refer to the fabric's weight in grams per square metre), and in men's and women's cuts. Oh yeah, and they come in a range of colours too.
