Top Features of the dhb Aeron Pro Cycling Bib Short
- Field Sensor 249g performance stretch fabric from Italy (69%Nylon-16%Polyester-15%Elastane)
- Carbon fibre mesh braces
- CyTech Elastic Interface Tour Air chamois (cycling pad)
- Wide leg elastic with silicone particle gripper
- White dhb logo on right thigh and rear
- Branded lycra binding
dhb have created a subtle, slick and functionally sophisticated pair of bib shorts for the serious rider who wants to ride hard and stay comfortable. The main body fabric is ‘Field Sensor’ which not only offers the highest compression in the dhb range but also manages perspiration to keep the rider as dry as possible when working hard.
The ‘Field Sensor’ construction is such that moisture is sucked off the skin to the outer surface to be evaporated. The patterning of the abdominal section of the garment is designed to keep the core of the rider stable and compressed so it feels secure and helps to regulate blood circulation. Use of special carbon fibre mesh fabric helps to regulate body temperature and reduce stress on the body (when compared to conventional fabrics).
The top-level ‘Tour Air’ chamois endeavors to provide the most comfortable riding experience possible. CyTech have engineered a three dimensional, dual density pad construction, which has a precision lamination of highly breathable, anti-chafe lycra. The perforations in the pad afford improved airflow to help keep the rider cool. Wide elastic on the leg openings with particle silicone stripes give this garment a bold and crafted appearance.

About Lycra Cycling Shorts
Cycle shorts offer unrestricted movement on the bike with the added benefit of a chamois for comfort. They are the traditional cycling leg wear for any distance rider. Lycra shorts hold their internal pad in the ideal position throughout the ride, offering comfort and cushioning for both on and off road riding. Lycra shorts stretch with your body so there are no seams to rub you up the wrong way or restrict your pedalling motion. They are lightweight in material and since there is only one layer of thin fabric, they breathe well and keep you cool on hot days, or can be used under a pair of winter tights. Higher end models will have more panels and will generally fit better, a good pair of shorts is essential for longer rides and combined with a chamois crème make a wise investment.

Magazine reviews for dhb Aeron Pro Cycling Bib Short
Review from road.cc
dhb offer some incredibly good-value clothing and while £75 on a pair of bib shorts might not seem to be the bargain of the year, for the quality you get here it really is a great deal.
These are made from Fieldsensor fabric (69% nylon, 16% polyester, 15% elastane) with a slightly raised inner surface that helps shift moisture outwards to keep you feeling comfortable. It's a middling weight fabric that provides good support while the well-cut 10-panel construction makes for an excellent fit.
The four-row stitching inspires confidence - catch a thread and you'll not immediately end up with a gaping hole - while the sturdy white band around the bottom of each leg comes with little silicone dashes inside that prevent them from riding up. I've not had any trouble on that score; they've stayed exactly where required. Of course, the white will show the dirt more easily than a darker colour but after several trips through the washing machine it's still looking new. It hasn't turned grey like you sometimes get when manufacturers mix black and white on the same item of clothing.
The upper section is made from carbon-fibre mesh. Carbon fibre? In a pair of bib shorts? Really? Apparently so. We've seen it used in other garments we've tested too recently Northwave use carbon fibre in their Evolution jersey where they reckon it helps reduce odour and static and ups UV protection - dhb make no such claims. And of course it't not in the same form as you'll find it used for bike frames, clearly; that would just be uncomfortable. On the Aeron Pros it's used in the mesh fabric 'to regulate body temperature and reduce stress on the body when compared to conventional fabrics.'
Well, that's the story from dhb. All I know is that the bib section is secure and comfortable and it feels airy and, to be honest, that's all I care about.
[Hey, while we're on the carbon thing, here's a little fact for you. Fieldsensor - that fabric used for the lower section of these shorts. You can't have forgotten already? - is made by Toray, who also produce T800 carbon fibre and all those other flavours that are used in bike frames. Same people. You can have that little nugget on us. Tuck it behind your ear and use it to fascinate your friends later. No thanks necessary.]
Anyway, back to the story... The chamois comes from Italy's CyTech. If you don't know about CyTech, they've only been about for a decade, but they've produced pads for loads of the big name brands: Assos, Gore, De Marchi, Rapha and a ton of others. The range is huge and the one used here is called the Tour Air which is a top-level option. It's actually not my favourite but it puts in a good performance. Most of the cushioning comes from 10mm-thick perforated foam, while you get 3mm material in the areas that don't need to work as hard.
It's a very stretchy pad and channels down the centre and between the different areas of padding allow for good airflow. The microfibre fabric next to your skin is very soft and comfy too. Personally, I prefer higher density cushioning through the centre section of the pad, and more of it, for long days in the saddle, but for rides up to, say, three or four hours - the vast majority of them - I've found this pad to be great.
Available in sizes XS-2XL and in a women's option at the same price.
Review from Cycling Plus
dhb has garned a well earned reputation for the quality of its clothing, and with bib shorts like the Aerons you can see why.
Although these are an excellent price, there's no skimping on quality and they compare very well with bibs that will set you back a great deal more. The leg grippers are secure, the meshed bib and braces balance the twin needs of wicking and support superbly, while the Fieldsensor Lycra has a fantastic feel. The finishing touch is added by the ultra-stretchy and extremely comfortable Cytech pad.
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
L fits the legs, but is a tad short on the braces. XL fits torso, loose on the legs
I am 6 2", 32 waist and have the med. Perfect fit. No issues with the straps.
25 inch thighs.
What size do you recommend?
I am 5ft 10ins tall with a 31'' waist. 22 inch thighs. The medium size is perfect. If I were to gain an inch on my waist and several inches on my thighs then the medium would be too small.
In the waist/chest I am a size small but in height a size XL. My size small Aeron Pro bib shorts fit me perfectly.
Height 6' 1.5" = XL
Chest 43" = L
Waist 36" = L
+ Skinny legs!
Think the straps will be stretchy and I should go for the L???
I am 5'10 and 30 waist and ordered the 'small'. They will fit you perfectly. They may look small when you receive them but they stretch a lot and are super comfortable on. The leg grippers hold the correct tension for me also.
i'm 6'0", 40" chest and 34" waist and the large are spot on for me, so maybe an XL for you
