The dhb Aeron Lab Ultralight waterproof jacket is part of the British brand's new premium range, launched this summer, dedicated to producing kit that is faster, lighter and more aerodynamic.

The Aeron Lab collection has been two years in the making and has been field tested in a variety of environments and by a range of riders including the pros of the brand’s sponsored Canyon-Eisberg team. Since, according to dhb, it has sourced the best fabrics, construction methods and minds to offer a complete pro-level range, the price is higher than you'd normally expect.
