For sometime now I have quite liked dhb cycle clothing as it combines good quality and design with value for money. Their range stocked by Wiggle has grown to become one of the widest around anywhere.
You can read more about the history of the dhb brand on the Wiggle site as they’re a British company who have done extraordinarily well. One of the nice things about dhb is that it’s not too trendy, a sort of Marks & Spencer of the cycling world perhaps. Anyway I have had for the last two or three summers a pair of their standard Lycra Aeron shorts and I’ve been delighted with their durability. It’s only now, after thousands of miles, there’s a little wear showing in terms of the dhb logo flaking off a little plus I think the padding may have compressed a little. Considering the reasonable price when compared to others, they’re not bad at all. Should add the fit is pretty good – I’m a 31″ waist and went for a medium size which seem fine, hope that helps.
While these are worn by loads of MAMILs these days, there are also some more colourful versions available for those who are a little more adventurous than me!
If you’ve never had any Lycra shorts but cycle regularly, they’re worth trying. I remember the first time I got some, they felt a bit off with the padded seat but once you’re on your bike you’ll feel the benefit straight away.
I’ll try and update this post after 25th May as Wiggle’s offer will have finished then. Naturally you can still buy them but the discount code won’t work.
