dhb Ladies Trick Short Sleeve Cycling Jersey


If you wish to complement your summer wardrobe, then look no further than the dhb Ladies Trick short sleeve summer jersey. It is made using a lightweight, breathable stretch fabric which has excellent wicking properties.


The dhb Ladies Trick Short Sleeve Jersey


The dhb Trick jersey is made using a heavily ventilated, perforated fabric on the back and sleeves and this works really hard to keep you extra cool and dry during the hot and humid summer days.  When riding hard on the drops, in high temperatures, you can actually feel the material doing its job wicking away moisture from the skin.  This is when the more heavily ventilated material on the back and arms is a real bonus.


There is a danger with some jerseys when riding in really hot conditions that you can feel chilled when you stop, but not with this one because it dries so quickly.


The half zip is just long enough to add a little more ventilation, which helps you stay comfortable on the really hot days and longer climbs, and we found it easy to open and close on the move.  The addition of a little chin guard to prevent chafing is a nice detail that is often overlooked on jerseys at this price point.


The dhb Trick jersey is cut to be a flatteringly slim fit, which means it is cut to follow your curves, without being totally form fitting.  We found it a good fit across the shoulders and chest, with no pulling or tugging.  It also has just the right amount of tension, plus the usual silicone gripper around the bottom hem, to avoid any riding up the back when we were on the move.


The graphics are quite striking – dhb have used black as the base colour, with purple and white lines rising up from the middle of the front to the left shoulder.  The left shoulder itself is purple and white, while the right shoulder is black – we liked the asymmetric print, which is most unusual in cycling clothing.  The dhb logos are, as usual, nicely understated on the front left chest and just under the neck on the rear.


The jersey has been treated with an anti-bacterial control treatment that prevents that stale smell of sweat that can sometimes still remain after a cool wash.  We found it did just as it promised, which guarantees that this jersey will get lots of wear from us.


There are three good sized rear pockets, which allow for all the essentials and the depth of these gave us confidence that we would not lose anything, even when riding off road.


The Trick jersey has a wonderfully soft feel, just like it’s caressing the skin and it has performed really well on some of the most stiflingly hot summer days.  The combination of great wicking and cooling properties leaves you feeling quite refreshed and it definitely ticks all the boxes for style.
