DHB Aeron Race Bib Shorts

DHB Aeron Cycling Bib Shorts from WiggleIn replacing my stolen kit, I had to buy some new bib-shorts. I bought two pairs, one of which are the Wiggle brand DHB Aeron Cycling Bib Shorts.

Previously I had the DHB ‘Finchdean’ bib shorts, but these are no longer available. But I had been very pleased with them, so a similar priced new model seemed worth a punt.

I ordered them late on a Wednesday evening, and was impressed when the Wiggle box arrived on the Friday morning. (complete with two complimentary fun sized packs of Haribo Star Mix! :D)

Wiggle say:

  • ‘Action 205g’ performance stretch fabric from Italy (80%Nylon-20%Elastane)
  • Carbon fibre mesh fabric on braces
  • CyTech Elastic Interface ‘Giro Air’ chamois (cycling pad)
  • dhb elastic leg opening with silicone gripper
  • Contrast colour paneling, with contrast flatlock seams
  • White dhb logo on right thigh and rear

Initial impressions were of a well made garment. The pad is of a good thickness to be comfortable for long rides, and the ‘cut’ looks good.

I got to try them out on a little 30 mile ride last Friday, and have used them once more since.

Being 5’8″, slim build, I ordered the Medium size, and the bottom half fits perfectly. The straps are comfortable, but a little ‘snug’. Fine once on the bike and bent forward though.

The pad is indeed comfortable, and I can see no bother wearing these for 80 to 100 mile rides.

If they are anything like the previous DHB shorts I have owned, I fully expect them to wear well too.

Given the price I would say they are very good value for money, and I will certainly be adding a second pair to my kit.

Good product, good price and good delivery = Happy Johnny :D
