The Blade jersey is an extension of the winter VAEON Zero bib tights. The majority of the Jersey is made from the luxuriously soft and powerfully stretchy Italian Lombardia 235g Roubaix fabric. The brushed fibres trap air to
insulate the rider against the cold. The Elastane content and superb construction of the fabric give this garment a durable form fit. The added protection in this garment comes from the front facing wind proof panels . A breathable yet windproof membrane maintains stretch for close fitting but cuts out the cold wind. The chest and outer arm panels use the wind proof membrane, whilst those panels exposed to less chill factor (the back panel and under arm) are not membraned so that overheating can be prevented.
Hidden zippers down the front-side are used to allow cold air to bypass the windproof barrier and get straight to the hot underarm. Ideal for long rides when the temperature creeps up or when your ride intensity increases and you need to cool off. Mesh ventilation panels in the rear of the jersey allow excess heat to be shed from the warmer, non-wind facing parts of the body.
The long sleeves, close collar and generous rear length allow this winter jersey to extend to key areas (wrists, neck and butt) providing insulation and eliminating drafts.
4 pockets - 3 vertical drop pockets and 1 secure zip pocket with audio routing, provide storage and organisation for the essentials of the ride.
Reflective detailing on the chest, back and arms together with reflective branding prints help to improve the rider’s road visibility to others when riding in low light conditions.

Magazine reviews for dhb Windslam Blade Long sleeve Jersey
Review from road.cc
dhb have really come a long way in the few years since it was launched as a clothing brand by online retailer Wiggle, and the Blade Windslam long sleeve jersey is a fine example of how well designed and keenly priced their clothing is.
An Italian Lombardia 235g Roubaix fabric is used in the construction of the jersey which has a remarkably soft feel next to the skin. To live up to its Windslam name there's a windproof membrane on the chest and outer arms panels so that the part of you facing into the wind is well protected.
And it really does work. Go out in the stiffest breeze in this compared to a regular long sleeve jersey and you really notice the difference. On recent rides I've been wearing the Windslam with a short sleeve merino base layer and this has been a good combination for current conditions.
Of course, current conditions seem to swing wildly from one day to the next, and one particular brisk tempo ride I could feel the early signs of overheating. Handily dhb have thought of this and there are two discreet zipped mesh-lined vents on the chest, along with two mesh-lined vertical vents on the back of the jacket, to prevent you overheating.
There is always the option of just opening up the full-length zip of course, but I found the two front vents, small though they look, provided just enough entrance for cool air that I was able to regulate my core temperature nicely.
The fit is described as 'form fit' and in essence that means the medium I tested was a comfortable if slightly generous fit. It wasn't overly snug or restrictive with good room in the arms and body. You could wear a couple of thicker layers underneath. The good fit extends to the high collar with an integrated zip guard, good length sleeves and waist drawstrings.
You get three pockets around the back with a waterproof zipped pocket placed outside on the central pocket. There are holes to thread your headphone cables through if you like to listen to music when you're cycling. Reflective details are found on the chest, back and arms and the logos are reflective.
Everyone needs a solid and reliable winter jersey and at Â£64 (as it is currently listed on the Wiggle website) you really can't go wrong. It's every bit as good as more expensive offerings and is the ideal top for the autumn weather.
Really good winter jersey with great wind protection and a comfortable fit. All at a great price too.
Review from Cycling Weekly
Although classified by dhb as a jersey, the Windslam Blade is definitely an outer layer capable of being used when the temperature drops. The 235g/m2 Miti Lombardia Roubaix fabric is similar to that used in legwear and this accounts for the soft feel, comfort and fit. A common failing of jackets is the tail riding up, but the Blade's long rear section never moved, even with laden pockets — these are noteworthy in themselves. You still need to carry plenty in winter so it was nice to see three traditional pockets (plus a zippered security pocket) but it was the detail that stood out. An accordion-like lower seam means they expand well to take a load without causing the tail to rise. Zippered vents offer airflow over the armpits when riding hard but without chilling the chest. Cut is larger over the shoulders than the body so it's worth trying a size down. It may not be from a big name but the Windslam Blade impressed.
Soft feel, comfort and fit. Zippered vents offer climate control.
Product Q & A
Ask your questions and share your answers.
I did try the other and sent it back because of the fit didn't work for me, also i didn't really think much of the thinness of the material. I was really pleased with the Windslam though yes it is black which is the only downside.
The Windslam Long Sleeve jersey is light weight, not brushed and is 100 percent polyester (no elastane content). This makes the fitting slightly looser (still performance fit) and this jersey is definitely less warm than the Windslam Blade. Wind protection on the front panel only.
Choose the Windslam Long sleeve jersey for Autumn and Spring weather. Fitting - not so tight.
Choose the WIndslam Blade for Colder, fresh winter weather. Form fitting.
The front chest panel (full length), side panels, collar and outer sleeve panels use Windproof membrane, to keep chill factor at bay.
Under arm and rear facing panels do not have the membrane.
I have one of these and the front facing section of the sleeves is made of the same windproofing material as the chest panels.
I use merino because of the wicking and the snug feel. Wicking was a bit of a problem at the front of this jacket but not a major issue for me. I've used it from < 5C to 14C.
The high neck is really good in the cold.
This garment will provide protection in very fine light rain. The jersey doesn't become saturated due to the way the fabric handles moisture.
In a 110mile ride out to Mersea Island from central London and back on a typical English day (12-15 degrees, with light patchy rain showers) the jersey provided a really comfortable solution.
New colours may be added into the range as soon as possible (Autumn Winter 13)
I' m a 6 foot and a 36 waist with a 44 inch chest so always with dhb buy XXL and if its one of those fancy foreign makes i have to buy XXXL which i would not have to do if i was buying running gear.
There size guides are waist of space. Only when you've returned things a thing few times do you get the gist.
Can anyone tell me how much this jersey weighs? Is it supple enough to roll up small, or is it bulky? Thanks
I'm 172cm tall, 92cm chest, 8cm waist, if i wears a base layer
under this jersey.
What constitutes a jacket as opposed to a jersey?
Would the Windslam Blade give lots of warmth?
What would be a better alternative?
