At dhb, we don't like problems: we prefer solutions. Our product development team recognised a problem that all female cyclists encounter on those longer rides - the mid-ride wee stop. With a problem identified, we set out to find a solution!

The problem is, that whilst normal bib-shorts are great, with their secure comfortable fit, they do create a challenge when nature calls; especially for women. When you need to take a quick nature break, the faster and more subtle you can be, the better! We have come up with a solution... Introducing the dhb Aeron Women's Halterneck Bib Shorts (2018)!




Ground breaking high-stretch Halterneck strap

The dhb Halterneck Shorts are a solution: They eliminate the need to remove your jacket and jersey during a mid-ride toilet break!  The design utilises Miti® fabrics for the halterneck bib: with their exceptional stretch and recovery properties, you can lower the rear of the shorts, without having to take off the bib itself! Far more comfortable, and discrete. Sometimes the simple solutions are the best, and we think our halterneck shorts are a real game-changer.

Tried and tested by Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling

There is no better place to test new innovations, than in the professional peloton. In the development of these shorts we worked closely with the Wiggle High5 Pro Cycling Team, to get their elite perspective. Here is what team owner and manager Rochelle Gilmore had to say: "We believe they [the dhb Aeron halterneck shorts] are absolutely pioneering in the world of Women's Cycling. Not only are the shorts both supportive and super comfortable, but the team will hugely benefit from the halterneck construction during the longer races and stages, due to the speed and ease at which the riders can now 'pit-stop'. The shorts are truly ground-breaking." It sounds like they work!


While the straps have changed, we’ve stuck with our bestselling and top-reviewed Aeron Race and Aeron Pro shorts for the rest of the construction. With top-quality Italian fabrics and and renowned CyTech Elastic Interface pads, we know these shorts will be comfortable for hours in the saddle.
