The Cheapest Cycling Clothing: To the Test

We tried and tested three of the cheapest cycling clothing outfits in the market, from dhb, B-Twin and Polaris.

Decathlon’s affordable cycle clothing brand, B-Twin was our next test.

B’TWIN 900 Women’s Cycling Jersey

At £34.99, I actually think this jersey is a little on the pricey side for what it is. In a previous article we rounded up the best value cycling jerseys on the market and when compared to some of these it really highlights that this offering from B’TWIN is not really at the races at all.

Made from 100% polyester, the jersey does have some positives. The fit is flattering, the rear pockets which include a zipped pocket for valuables offer ample storage space and the thick elastic on the arms is super soft and flattering.

My major gripe with this jersey is the fabric. Next to skin, it doesn’t feel great so I wouldn’t really opt to wear it solo without a baselayer. Worn on a hot day, it was not efficient at wicking away sweat. I was pretty drenched by the time I got home after an hour long cycle.

B’TWIN 900 Women’s Cycling Bib Shorts

Unlike the matching jersey, I was quite impressed with the B’TWIN 900 Bib Shorts (£34.99). Soft next to the skin, they offered a snug fit, comfortable straps and were quite flattering.

The mesh fabric down the back and sides provided made the short pretty breathable. Elsewhere the chamois performed pretty well too. Not too thick, it was pretty comfortable and more than adequate for shorter rides.

B’TWIN 300 Women’s Cycling Gloves

These cheap and cheerful gloves come in at just £4.99. If you are just starting out, gloves are a good purchase. They not only help with grip of the handlebars, the padding will also absorb some of the shock from bumpy roads taking the pressure off your arms.

These gloves from B’TWIN are pretty basic, which is what you would expect at £4.99. The padding is pretty minimal but they do fit quite well and provide adequate grip.
