Some cyclists brave the elements throughout the winter, while some spend the colder months pedalling away on an exercise bike – but both sets will be cheered by the fact that spring has arrived.

Commutes are no longer a dark, wet chore, and long weekend rides are a treat. March also signals the start of sportive season, with cycling events coming thick and fast now until the end of autumn.

All that cycling is naturally going to require some smart new kit, so it’s well worth perusing the new releases from dhb in the cycling brand’s Aeron, Blok and Classic ranges.

Aeron is dhb’s range of top-end performance gear, designed to match the standards of the best on the market without the eye-watering price. That means the best in technical fabrics, a tight, racing fit, and on-trend designs so you’re not laughed out of the saddle.

The Aeron Speed Short Sleeve jersey (opens in new tab) (£55, pictured above) is our top pick from the range – perfect for those keen to impress in their sportives. It’s best paired with the Aeron Speed Bib Shorts (opens in new tab) (£80), which have a compression fit and an aerodynamic design.

Whereas the Aeron range is focused on performance, Blok is all about funky designs. It’s still made with the fancy, sweat-wicking fabrics you’d expect in cycling gear, but it’s the patterns that’ll be turning heads on your rides.

The stand-out design from the new range is the Bolt, with its striking multi-coloured lightning pattern on a black background. You can get pretty much every item of clothing you need for the bike in the pattern, including jerseys (opens in new tab) (£45, pictured above), bib shorts (opens in new tab) (£50) and even a handy packable gilet (opens in new tab) (£40, pictured below).
