The Sync is a breathable storm jacket with maximum rain protection and refined looks, It’s the only jacket you need over the course off your day, ideal for both on and off the bike. The understated matt tones and reflective detailing fit perfectly into any travelling environment, providing an alternative to the classic styling of more conventional cycling jackets.
The clean lines are inspired by technical mountain wear – which shares a need for robust weather protection, without compromising freedom of movement. The seams are strategically placed to eliminate abrasion and pressure points when carrying a rucksack or messenger bag.
The cut is longer than a conventional cycling jacket to ensure you have effective waterproof coverage when you’re off the bike and the fit accommodates thermal layers in cold conditions or your regular clothing on short trips. The sleeves are tapered to allow layering at the upper arm without excess fabric at the forearm. Adjustable cuffs provide a seal against the winter elements. When temperatures rise, unzip the under-arm vents for cool air circulation.
Make use of the peaked hood to dash through the downpours and rest assured that your essentials are safe and dry in zip pockets with storm flaps; a secure zip pocket on the chest is included for your valuables.
Available in matt finish ‘Stealth Black’ or ‘Deep Ever Green’.
About Cycling Waterproof Jackets
Waterproof cycle jackets can improve your comfort levels on the bike considerably when the weather turns nasty. Factors such as wind resistance and high breathability are important if you will be riding at a high pace over a fair distance, along with wearing a good quality base or mid layer to help with wicking moisture away from your skin. Waterproof cycle jackets with hi tech fabrics such as GoreTex and eVent are well worth paying a little extra for, if you require high levels of breathability, this will improve protection, dryness and comfort on longer rides in poor conditions.

Magazine reviews for dhb Sync Waterproof Jacket
Review from London Cyclist
Provoked by the hosepipe ban, in the past 30 days we've seen the skies opening and unleashing their rainy fury on London's cyclists. In response, I've been testing out the DHB Sync Waterproof Jacket (59.99 Wiggle). The ultimate solution for the worst weather that can be thrown at a cyclist.
Let's get one thing clear, I've always been a fan of the DHB range. In my own testing experience, it often outperforms more expensive products. The DHB Sync Jacket adds one very crucial element that I've found makes a big difference when compared to similar jackets. A hood.
You may think riding around with a hood sounds a little precarious. There's obviously a DHB designer somewhere that agrees with you. Most of their range so far has been hood free. Fortunately, now that the decision has been made to include one – I'm wondering why I didn't get a hooded jacket sooner.
As the rain lashes down not only do you avoid getting rain running down the back of your neck but you also keep rain out of your face thanks to the peaked front. This makes you feel invisible against the rain.
The downside with a hood is you lose some of your peripheral vision. The DHB Sync Waterproof Jacket is designed to combat that by offering a tight fit so that you can customise the position. In practise you do still lose some of your field of vision around the edges which isn't ideal. However, I've not found this to be a hindrance on the road.
Moving beyond the peaked hood, the material used in the jacket provides excellent waterproofing. Even during prolonged exposure. This is definitely a waterproof as opposed to water resistant jacket. As such, you'll never have any downpours to worry about.
Also protecting you against the rain is the longer cut at the back with the adjustable elastic cord waist which means the jacket can be tightened to prevent it riding up your back.
Pockets and looks
The DHB Sync Waterproof Jacket comes with two zipped front pockets along with a chest pocket. All three of which are really useful and also keep the contents placed inside waterproof. I tend to keep my iPhone in the breast pocket which makes it quick to access if I need to pull to the side of the road to check directions.
As the jacket has minimum branding it looks good off the bike too. This is great for when you don't want to look like a cyclist when you've reached your destination. It also means the jacket can be used on a daily basis. (Though hopefully it won't need to be!)
Comfortable but warm
The cut of the jacket has clearly been well thought out. Even when leaning down on the handlebars with a messenger bag strapped to my back everything felt very comfortable.
However, it must be noted that you will get warm in the DHB Sync Waterproof Jacket. The two under arm vents help but there's only so much they can do. Perhaps if Gore-Tex material was used then this jacket would be offer superior breathability. In practise, I'm happy to trade off getting a little warm for the advantage of staying completely dry.
Overall, I'm going to give the DHB Sync Waterproof Jacket 4 and a half stars out of 5 for this review. For staying dry, I've yet to test a more effective jacket. The only area where there's room for improvement is to add additional breathability. At £59.99 this is a great buy.

We wear this jacket in the rain, and not in the rain in temps up to 15deg C, at moderate intensities with ventilation zippers open.
The idea behind SYNC is to Synchronize your jacket choice for your 'on' and 'off' the bike lifestyle.
If you plan to be road riding +10miles in the rain check out the
dhb EQ2.5 (cold, wet weather, ride focused), dhb Signal (warmer, wet weather commuter focused) or dhb Minima S (warmer, wet weather, compact emergency rain shell).
great jacket though.
The jacket has a great cut and fit, suitable for riding, walking and running
Layer 1 (the outside face), is the Nylon shell which has the coating on it. It is durable and hard wearing.
Layer 2 is breathable and waterproof PU membrane. This makes the outer shell waterproof!
Layer 3 (next to skin) is a synthetic tricot which protects the delicate membrane (layer 2) from abrasion (your body wearing against the inside of the garment). Tricot is a knitted mesh type fabric.
This jacket is very waterproof, offering really good coverage. dhb have classed it as a storm jacket.
Underarm ventilation zips allow you to shed heat in warmer wer weather or during high intensity efforts.
I have used it for high-intens training and for this purpose a real sports jacket is a better choice.
It is Black with a very, very, very, subtle blue sheen in some light conditions.
Our apologies for this.
