dhb Ladies Chevron Air Short Sleeve Jersey

 

Getting out and riding is the core philosophy of the dhb brand. With this in mind they have designed the dhb Ladies Chevron Air short sleeved jersey which helps makes summer riding comfortable and has an attractive yet simple design. It comes in two colours black/white or fuchsia/white.

 

dhb Ladies Chevron Jersey

 

The jersey is made from 89% nylon and 11% elastane which gives it a very light and soft feel, great for summer rides or sessions indoors on the velodrome, which is where we tested it. The material is very stretchy and is a slim “performance” fit without feeling tight or restrictive, but there is certainly no ‘flapping’ or gathering around the arms or neck. The neck is lower than some jerseys but again this is ideal for riding in warmer conditions and when the zip is done up to the top it is snug but comfortable. The jersey is listed as “form fit” which can mean sizes come up a little smaller than expected and are designed with performance in mind, so we suggest that when purchasing you should make sure you check the dhb size guide.

 

There are meshed panels on the back and under the arms to aid ventilation and help keep you cool, whilst the interpower technology promotes the wicking of perspiration from the body to the surface of the fabric.

 

The Chevron Air jersey has a full length zip, which definitely adds to its appeal for summer rides or indoor sessions and it comes with the added security of a YKK lock down zip, which mean that it stays exactly where you want it.

 

On the back there are two easy accessible pockets for any spares or snacks that you need to keep you going. The centre pocket is slightly shallower and has a flap making, it more suited for things that need a little more security, such as mobile phone and there is also a zip pocket ideal for coins/keys.  Really well thought out.

 

All of this is kept in place by silcon gripper around the elasticated hem, which ensures that there is no irritating sliding up when your riding.

 

The chevron jersey can be machine washed and is treated by ‘sanitized’ to reduce odour build up. Since trying this jersey it has become one of the key pieces in our cycling wardrobe - a bit like that favourite pair of jeans that are both comfy and the perfect fit and so get worn more than the others!

 

A great looking,well fitting and high performance jersey with no real down points.
