The Magic of Merino After months of rigorous testing to find the right fabric, dhb’s new Merino cycling jersey is a perfect blend of Merino’s natural ability and some modern performance extras. Merino wool is a hard-working fabric made up of ultrafine fibres, each of which works to keep you at your optimum temperature out on your bike. What’s special about Merino is its ability to regulate your temperature efficiently in both directions. Warmer when temperatures are cool and cooler when temperatures are warm. With an incredible warmth to weight ratio, this jersey works beyond expectations to keep you comfortable. Not only is it superb at regulating body temperature, but Merino is also naturally antibacterial and odour resistant, keeping you and your jersey fresh, ride after ride. And the jersey can also go longer between laundry cycles, both extending its life span and lessening its environmental impact. Modern Performance Blend dhb have designed this jersey with Autumn, Spring and Winter riding in mind. Using a mid-weight Merino blend to keep you warm in cool conditions, this wool is blended with Polyamide to allow for some extra stretch. The real secret of this jersey is an added Polypropylene layer on the inside of the fabric. Soft next to the skin, this is incredibly hydrophobic, moving any moisture build-up to the outside of the fabric for it to evaporate even quicker. Though Merino keeps working when it is wet, this is a nice touch to keep you more comfortable on the bike, and enjoying your ride. Performance Fit Made from wool, this is by no means a woolly jumper. With a fit similar to that of the men’s dhb Aeron Collection, this jersey sits close to the body without being at all restrictive. With a cut to limit excess fabric when in a riding position, this jersey has been designed for long days in the saddle. Finishing touches Like any bit of dhb kit, the finishing touches are what sets this jersey apart. Add in a rear mesh strip to release excess heat, quality silicone arm and hem grippers, and the end result is a merino jersey that not only looks the part and feels good but performs all day long too.
