dhb dhb Aeron Pro Cycling Bib Short
Having ridden dhb shorts in the past I knew the quality would be good and these Aeron Pro bib shorts do not dissapoint me as the fit is excellent. What I was really impressed with was the styling of the short. The white leg grippers gripped the leg well and also look good with the white stitching and the white dhb logo. The pad was also very comfortable and after riding 70 miles in a sportive event last weekend, I had no issues whatsoever.
A great pair of bibshorts at a good price and well worth it.

They Do It Again
Once again, DHB have produced a great pair of bib-shorts. the insert is amazingly comfortable and fits to my body perfectly. the white lower panels look great and the grippers are nice. A great fitting top end race level short.

great bibs, awesome price
These fit true to size, great quality for the price, fast shipping to the USA

Great value for money
I have been using the bibs for indoor cycling and they are very comfortable. The could be a bit more slim fit.

High Quality & Reliable
Comfortable and durable. As good as any of the expensive brands.

Bought at a great price, very impressed
Bought as a second pair of shorts, first pair being a standard first pair which, while comfortable, don't compare to these.
Used the Wiggle size guide and was surprised it suggested the XS but went with it and glad I did. Very good fit, personally I really like the styling (white sections at the bottom add a bit of visibility - always something I look for.
Have used these on a couple of longer rides and a few short ones, and am very happy with them. Picked them up in the sale so got a great price, certainly can't grumble, Would've been really stretching my budget at full price, but can't imagine any better value bib shorts.

I am 5'4", 145lbs, 39" chest and 30" waist #or low waist?#, 21" thigh. Small is skin tight, as expected, with no pulling or sagging at shoulders or in crotch.
The material is a little thinner than I expected, but very comfortable. The pad seems good, too, and is definitely deeper and more structured than the old PI PRO chamois this is replacing. My 3-6 hour rides should be comfy. The legs are shorter than I expected - about 9" inseam from the chamois centre, where the PI is about 10" - which means this does not grip at the knee but a little higher. I am not used to this as most kit is made for taller people, but do not foresee problems excepting going through more sunscreen. The grippers are a strip of compression fabric #the coloured end# with small silicone slashes around the leg; this feels very comfortable. It will be too cold to give these a serious test in Toronto before April or May 2016, but everything suggests I will barely notice these shorts then. I am not crazy about the white stitching which makes me think of underwear, but I don't have to look at myself. In its way, it is stylish. :)
4 stars due to the sizing: they fit me well, but the leg is shorter than usual for a 'small' aimed at someone 5'8"-5'10". An unintended proper fit for a small size? Everything else is excellent.
This arrived quickly via regular mail to Canada; I avoid the brokerage fees of the delivery companies and don't mind any tariffs #and CP's handling fee is reasonable#. In the end, I always save money.

excellent fit with a really good comfy pad. What more do you need,and at a great price as well.

Not as good as I thought they would be
I purchased these as I was cycling the C2C in a day and wanted something that was going to keep me comfortable.
Having cycled long distances in DHB before I thought these would be even better. Unfortunately this was not the case. For whatever reason these shorts didn't give me the same level of comfort over long distance (50 miles +) that I was used to on a cheaper pair of DHB shorts.
Fortunately a fellow cyclist on the same C2C lent me his Moo Udderly Smooth Chamois which made the final stages of the 150 miles bearable.

These bibshorts are excellent value for money with a great pad in them used on a 50 mile ride no discomfort at all, bought in the sale for a bargain price as well.
29 December 2015
my first bib and it is very comfortable but a little looser than i was expecting when compared to shorts. could be a sizing issue
24 December 2015
Great Price and Product
I debated about ordering these as I live in the US but dhb has great reviews so I gave it a shot. Ordered two pairs of the bibs and they are great. Size xs is perfect for me. Im 5'7" 125lbs and have a hard time finding small enough leg openings. Will buy again

Bought these for commuting and short rides. They perform just as well as my more expensive brands and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. Sizing is sensible unlike some Italian brands I could mention.

Comfort to the Max!
I started cycling in March of this year. I bought dhb entry level cycling shorts, not a bib type. They were my first venture into lycra, and they did the job, but being a bit cynical towards paying more for what I suspected would be little different, I carried on with them longer than I should have. Over short distance, say 20 miles or so, no problem. However, I got better and fitter and did 55 miles a few months later. I spent the last 15 miles almost entirely stood up because it was so uncomfortable.
I bought these and what a difference. When they arrived I expected more from the padding. It wasn't thicker than my cheaper shorts which surprised me, however it felt much firmer more dense. Clearly that is the key. The comfort these offer is completely different, not just from the rear end perspective but the material itself just feels so much better on. Less friction. I've not had any saddle issues in them, up to 50 mile is fine, after that I'm not sure as I've not ventured beyond yet. Next season I fully intend doing a 100 mile. See how they get on then!
From a newbie perspective, I would opt for these above the cheaper ones. You may think you don't need it yet, but the comfort these offer, for that bit more, is worth it, even on shorter rides. If you plan anything 30 mile or more, then these are a must. As I'm still so new to this game, I can't compare against other brands, but other reviews suggest that these are amazing value.
Again from a newbie viewpoint, bib shorts will be a conversation piece with other cyclists. Some love them, others not so fussed. Now I've tried them, I can't see myself going for any other type. Before you put a cycling top on, be it a t-shirt or jacket, you will look really stupid. But you're not going out looking like that, people won't see those straps, so don't worry. If you can see the straps, you've done it wrong! They stay in place and are way more comfortable around the waste, as there no need for elastic there. You won't be adjusting as much, if you catch my drift.
I highly recommend!

My first dhb short, it's just awesome!
I would definitely buy another one in the future.
24 November 2015
Great fit and comfy pad!
I don't think I'll ever buy cycling shorts that aren't bibs again... The fitting size guide is perfect for these and they are my go to cycling shorts now.

Good comfy bib shorts
Very comfy for both long and short rides
For the price point the are excellent value for money
15 November 2015
Extra padding for longer rides
I got these for longer rides. After a couple of back to back 160k rides I discovered that among the ratings applicable to shorts is one that applies to recommended distance. My pain led me to these shorts and so far they've been good.

smart with a chunky pad
Smart looking with a good fit. Pad is quite thick but comfy.
08 November 2015
Great products for a great price
I read all the other reviews and I have to say the same, a great pair of shorts for a great price.
08 November 2015
Trained on the Surrey Hills all through the summer in these and they were very comfortable. Completed the Ride London 100 mile event with no issues from these bib shorts. Would recommend.
24 October 2015
Very comfortable bibs that I hope will last for a long time.
19 October 2015
It s a good start out bib!
It is well make, cushion is pro level very comfortable. The only thing that could be better is the shoulder band is a bit on thin side vs other dbh products I ve tried. Overall good!
14 October 2015
Very comfortable bib shorts... maybe a bit tight across the shoulder blades which suggests a little shortness in the length of the body.
11 October 2015
Great value and true sizing. I'm 183cm and around 80kg and the large is spot on.
I've bought a few DHB products now and they all wear well and the price can't be beat.
10 October 2015
Great value for money
Great pair of bib shorts that not only look good but are nice and comfy for long rides. Bought these for a 75mile ride at Stamford and they didn't disappoint.
They have been washed and used all summer long. A keeper.

Good product for the money
Good fit, comfortable in hot humid weather, (93F/85%RH) south FL USA. Bottom pad is a bit thin for long rides of over 50 miles, and one has to be very careful putting them on. if you pull them up and stretch them while putting them on, you will hear some threads popping.The material is not as smooth as some of the higher end and much higher priced bibs, but the dhb are nice and tight and supportive. If your on a limited budget, you will not be disappointed with dhb Aeron bibs. I would purchase again, but I'll wait for the ones I really want to go on sale.

Sorry guys it just doesn't do it for me. I just don"t seem to gt on with the pad. I find it sticks and doesn't wick away moisture as it could/should. The rest Ok - but more a spring/autumn bib than a bib to wear in high températures.
30 September 2015
Plenty of padding - one of the main reasons for buying these. Good fit, keeps tum and small of the back free from chills. Highly recommended. Must buy the tights equivalent soon. Winter draw(er)s on!
30 September 2015
Couldn't ask for a better product. It fits so well and at such a great price.

Will more sizes be stocked again for this product or is it being phased out? There haven't been any XXL for over a month now (very tall!). I tried the 'Limited' Aeron Pro but found it far inferior to this original, which is pretty much flawless imho.
These are a performance fit and can come up a little tight, I would suggest measuring your waist and chest to find the best option in these. The sizing guide included will offer the best sizing for you.
I've read most of the size questions here but I bought the DHB Classic bib and found the XXL fitted me best even at 6'1" 34 waist and 87 kgs. You don't seem to do the Classic any more and so my question is are these the same in sizing as the Classic? Most other questions suggest a XL at most, which came up a little short in the leg on the Classic. Thanks.
Can't measure him or would give the game away! 6'2" Wears medium shorts usually 32" waist 66kg (!) L or M?! Thanks, sorry for yet another sizing question but I skimmed thru and couldn't find anyone with similar measurements (apart from Chris Froome, apparently!)

The pad is alright I find that these shorts are good for up to 3 hours or so before any discomfort becomes noticeable. They should be fine if you take a break in the 5 hours. I much prefer the pad in my pearl Izumi bib shorts but its horses for course.
I am 85-88kg, 181 cm and usually wear 32-344 inch waist shorts. My thighs rare slightly bigger than norm for my weight but large fits me well. Found that the medium are dhb are too thigh across the shoulders for my height and large are a comfortable fit. DHB sizing seems constant.

I can confirm the Aeron pro will offer quite a closer fit compared to the Aeron Race, it's difficult to give exact measurements however we would advise going one size up on the Pro models than the size selected in the Race models.

I'd plum for a medium, I'm 6ft-2, 15st-7 rugby build and the XL fits great height-wise which I think is the crux of your problem. The height would be def a medium but it depends how much "body" it needs to travel around!! Wiggle have a great return policy so try both starting with the med.
The ASV bib shorts are the same specification as the Professional WigleHonda team team kit. They are designed to be lightweight and suitable for racing conditions. The CyTech Elastic Interface Endurance HD pad is low bulk and High Density suitable for longer efforts in the saddle, for those with a lean body.
The Aeron pro Bib shorts feature Toray's - Fieldsensor fabric, this fabric is designed to rapidly move moisture. The CyTech Elastic Interface Tour Air pad is suitable for medium to long efforts in the saddle, and has greater comfort hand feel.
Remember that everyone has different tolerances to comfort in the saddle, and the above is a guide.

I can confirm the ASV models are made from a lighter Italian fabric which retains the same level of strength as the fabric as the Pro bibshorts. The pad is also slightly lighter for race use whilst still providing good levels of comfort.
I'm 178cm and about 75-80kg, but my thighs are pretty big (from soccer and cycling..) I already have a pair (size M) and they are a good fit except being a little bit tight around the thighs. So I'm wondering what difference buying a pair size L would do.

In this case we would require some further information from you. If you would be so kind as to contact us directly using the following link with your waist and chest measurements then we should be able to help further:
I'm 6ft 3" with a 34" waist and the Large fits me perfectly. If I could improve it, I would lengthen the inseam by 3/4 inch. However, I like the longer leg shorts. Whereas I have friends who prefer the shorter style of leg. The Aeron Pro is somewhere in between.

Hi there, 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. Good luck.
What is the recommended temperature range for these bib shorts?
For reference the Vaeon Roubaix range info states "wear them alone in high intensity rides where the temperature is cool but not cold (12-18degree Celsius)" I am guessing that the Aeron range is for warmer conditions.

I find with the dhb bib shorts that its the leg part that comes up short, not the straps. I am 6'2 32 inch waist and go for the large. These are a good fit for me in waist and length. I bought a medium pair by mistake once and the fit was fine apart from the leg length. So if the sizing says large is OK for you waist size, we are the same height, so you should be fine.
