For as long as we have been riding, finding female MTB clothes has been a pretty tough task. The decision between versatility and style is not always an easy one to balance and often as women we have to choose between something that’s durable enough to survive our riding, and something that looks good for our shape.
Step forward dhb. This brand, most widely recognised for its strong female road cycling offering, has released its first entire MTB outfit for women this year. While this brand has stepped into the hybrid clothing arena in the past, this commitment to MTB clothing is new.
Jessica Strange, the editor of our sister title Total Women’s Cycling, got her hands on the new kit recently. Read her thoughts below on if it looks as goood as it claims and stands up to the test of a day on the trails...
dhb MTB Womens Long Sleeve Trail Jersey
Jess: "dhb’s long-sleeve women’s mountain bike jersey is simple and understated. Constructed from a breathable polyester, this jersey has a feminine cut to suit body and a loose fit which conforms to your typical MTB style.
Colour fading from navy blue to cerise, this jersey certainly has a feminine charm without screaming “women’s specific" to the world. dhb has certainly played it cool with the branding, as you won’t find their logo splashed around the place. Instead, a small tag can be found on the neckline, and nowhere else.
dhb MTB Womens Trail Baggy Short
Jess: "The women’s trail shorts from dhb are the perfect compliment to the women’s jersey. They’re simple, elegant and ready to shred the trails in any conditions.
Constructed from a stretchy, yet tough, material, these shorts have moisture wicking properties, adjustable waistband, silicone grippers and spacious pockets for your essentials. They’re flat black in colour, making them perfect for mix ‘n’ matching with your existing wardrobe and like your staple LBD, every rider needs a pair of plain black shorts."
