There are times when simply getting the job done is more important than anything else. Thankfully, if you've chosen the DHB bib short to make your ride faster and more comfortable, but not at the expense of the fiscal bottom line, then you've hit the bulls eye.
The DHB logo doesn't mean much to the hardened rider for whom only pro level Assos, Pearl Izumi or Sugoi will do, but the logo is unobtrusive and heralds a bib short that is well designed, even if the overall quality of the materials means these will not be your last pair. The bibs are anatomical with clean seams, no chafing and the anti-bacterial pad is as good as those found on shorts costing half as much again. For classic good looks and more than passable performance, the DHBs could be the shorts to suit your budget.
