As we have come to expect from dhb, these shorts are great value for money. The shorts are really comfortable on, have a nice sleek chamois and overall offer great bang for your buck.
However we were a little baffled by their answer to the toilet break problem – we had been instructed to just pull the shorts down, keeping the halter strap in place around your neck. Sounded a little bizarre to us, that is until we tried it. dhb has used an ultra stretchy lycra on the strap which means there is no feeding straps under the jersey or pernickety hooks to deal with.
Verdict: Overall this short is great but there are two major shortfalls. The absence or torso support means that the strap hangs quite heavily from your neck causing a little bit of strain over longer rides. Secondly, we are also a little sceptical about how long the strap will remain elastic when it is being puled down with force on a regular basis. The latter I guess remains to be seen.
