Traditionally, dhb has been associated with road cycling. They've built up a strong following owing to their affordable performance cycling apparel and for their gender equality when it comes to ensuring both men's and women's kit are equally represented.
While dhb has dabbled in the occasional hybrid garment, ideal for both road and off-road adventuring, this year we've seen a whole new MTB look from the British brand. Introducing a new women's jersey and baggy shorts, we've gotten our hands on the new collection to put it through its paces.
dhb MTB Womens Long Sleeve Trail Jersey
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
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.

dhb Women's Mountain Bike Collection
If you thought that was it, then you are sorely mistaken.
dhb's full women's mountain bike range goes on to include a short-sleeve jersey with all the same performance features and appeal as the long-sleeve version, but in a teal, blue and grey colourway. Available in sizes UK 8 to UK 16, you can grab yourself one here!
There are two great sock options to keep your feet cosy on the trails as well. The dhb Trail Socks have been constructed with Polypropylene which helps wicks away moisture from the skin, allowing breathability with a performance compression feel. And if you really want to treat your feet this winter, then dhb have their Winter Merino Trail Socks with their superior warmth, comfort and reinforced heels to ensure you get many happy trail miles out of them.
To really complete the mountain bike look, dhb has launched two new pairs of women's trail shoes. First up, the dhb Troika MTB Shoes...
Designed for cross-country and cyclocross action, these shoes can quickly become your go-to trail footwear of choice.
Made from a lightweight synthetic upper, these shoes have strategically positioned perforations to help improve airflow and breathability. They have an SPD cleat mounting system and extra traction in the sole to provide necessary grip for when you're off the bike.
dhb Dorica MTB shoe
If you're looking for something a little more sleek and traditional then the Dorica is the shoe for you.
The full lace-up system ensures you get that fit dialled in perfectly and the soft synthetic upper material is not only hard wearing, but flexes with your foot movement to keep you feeling connected and comfortable on the bike.
