dhb launch Aeron LAB premium collection

Promising their "best kit to date", dhb's Aeron LAB collection has been two years in the making, and no compromises have been made to create faster, lighter and more aero gear

Thought dhb were all about cheap and cheerful? Think again, as their new Aeron LAB collection is described as race-ready and all about performance, and dhb's fastest and lightest kit ever made.   

Review: dhb Dorica road shoe 
Six of the best bib shorts

dhb have been developing the Aeron LAB kit for over two years, designing each piece from the ground-up and road testing in numerous locations worldwide. They've also consulted pro team Canyon-Eisberg during the R+D process, who will be wearing the Aeron LAB kit through the 2018 season.  


The Aeron LAB Ultralight kit is made for hot days in the mountains, combining lightweight fabrics, and minimalist yet robust construction methods. Three premium mesh fabrics are used, and it's also got a dropped neckline for increased comfort.  


The Raceline jersey and bib shorts are all about speed, and both include fabrics that disrupt airflow designed to be as aerodynamic as possible. dhb promise a second-skin, pro fit and integrated grippers for a comfortable experience. The pockets aren't neglected which is good to hear for us non-pro folk without a team car at our disposal; dhb say the Raceline pockets sit flush when not in use and are able to take a load when you need without any sagging. There's also a hidden middle pocket for valuables, which is a fabric envelope as opposed to a zipped section to save more weight. 


Although they've "refused to compromise on any element" of the Aeron LAB kit, dhb still claim it will offer good value for money considering the kit is of premium quality. The Ultralight jersey is £70 and bib shorts £120, while the Raceline jersey and bib shorts are £110 and £130 respectively. You can also get a Raceline speedsuit for £180 and socks for £15, and all the kit is available in men's and women's sizes. The whole Aeron LAB collection is on sale now at both Wiggle and Chain Reaction Cycles.   

It goes without saying we'll be looking to test some of the new Aeron LAB gear soon, so check back on the site over the coming weeks for previews and reviews. 

Arriving at in 2017 via 220 Triathlon Magazine, Jack dipped his toe in most jobs on the site and over at eBikeTips before being named the new editor of in 2020, much to his surprise. His cycling life began during his students days, when he cobbled together a few hundred quid off the back of a hard winter selling hats (long story) and bought his first road bike - a Trek 1.1 that was quickly relegated to winter steed, before it was sadly pinched a few years later. Creatively replacing it with a Trek 1.2, Jack mostly rides this bike around local cycle paths nowadays, but when he wants to get the racer out and be competitive his preferred events are time trials, sportives, triathlons and pogo sticking - the latter being another long story.

good timing is having a rider wearing the kit win Stage 1 of the men's Tour de Yorkshire wearing it!

Woah, that is firmly in the Castelli price range there!

I must admit, I was disappointed with my DHB ASV race jersey (well, I would have been had I paid the full £85 - I got it for £30). For an aero jersey, it flaps a fair bit.

My Castelli jersey, on the other hand, is like being shrink-wrapped - much nicer for an aero jersey (I'm sure there's a website for that somewhere...).

I may be tempted by these in the future, particularly the shorts.

If I tell you the original name for these shorts was Aeron LAB1A you'll understand why they wanted to err on the side of safety.

I've heard it is wise to take precautions when getting yourself into those.

I love how the description of the Aeron Lab Raceline bibshorts on wiggle includes the line

"Please follow the dressing instructions supplied with the shorts to make sure you get the best out of these bibs"


Surely shorts can't be that complicated to put on
