Dhb aeron FLT Roubaix £85

Cycling Weekly - - TECH GROUPTEST -

Plen­ti­ful re­flec­tive de­tail­ing is paired with the highly re­garded Roubaix fab­ric from Ital­ian brand Miti for the Aerons. Up top is a high-backed brace sys­tem. The cen­tre of the back is a breath­able mesh, which is flanked by fleece-backed straps de­signed to of­fer fur­ther warmth.

The Elas­tic In­ter­face pad uses two foam den­si­ties and is aimed at six hours in the sad­dle. The FLT (Flash Light Tech­nol­ogy) en­tails a sub­tle insert on each thigh, along with lower leg re­flec­tive de­tail, and a small re­flec­tive logo at the rear.

While the legs were long and well-fit­ting, the bibs felt tight and the re­sult was a gap be­tween chamois and groin when out of the sad­dle. How­ever, fit of tights is a real per­sonal thing: the dhbs might fit the next rider per­fectly. At £85 they are also a lot cheaper than oth­ers, and for this they do of­fer just as much in terms of fea­tures as the Sport­fuls. So they’re well worth a try be­fore you cut the swing tags off, but we would pay the ex­tra to get prop­erly fit­ting tights.
