The thermal gilet that gives you the freedom to ride through cold and changeable conditions. Powered by Polartec® Alpha® Direct fabric, this new development from dhb balances lightweight insulation with best-in-class breathability.
Thermal gilets don't have to be big and bulky. The new Aeron Polartec Alpha Gilet from dhb uses advanced fabric technology creates a breathable, insulating layer, leaving you free to ride into winter in comfort, without the need for heavy, restrictive layers.
Small enough to fit in your middle jersey pocket, this is the ideal gilet for carrying that nimble riding feeling into the colder months.
Powered by Polartec® Alpha® Direct - lightweight and versatile thermal regulation.
One of the most advanced thermal fabrics available, Polartec® Alpha® Direct is designed to regulate comfort in changeable conditions, making it the perfect insulating layer for cycling when temperatures can vary a lot over the course of a ride, depending on weather conditions or if you're pushing the pace.
Alpha® Direct is a new evolution from Polartec® of original Alpha technology. It removes the need for an extra layer of fabric on the inside, which damages breathability. By refining the shape and size of the lofted fibres, Alpha® Direct can sit directly next to other layers of fabric, improving breathability and comfort, whilst also reducing the overall weight of the gilet.
There's more to Alpha® than meets the eye
On the inside of this gilet, it looks like a fluffy, delicate fabric. On the inside of this gilet, it looks like a fluffy, delicate fabric. But this is a tough, highly durable fabric that's designed to deal with the rough conditions of riding through the colder months. Polartec® Alpha® Direct regulates warmth, is extremely breathable, drys fast, packs down small and is incredibly durable. Once you've used a fabric of this quality, it's hard to go back.
Windproof outer fabric
It's not all about insulation. A windproof outer layer, with a DWR water repellent treatment, is there to block the weather before it reaches your core. Underarm mesh stretch panels are there to ensure a great fit, and allow more heat build-up to escape. There's a full-length YKK Zip for unzipping during tough efforts.
Good gilets have usable pockets. The Aeron Polartec Alpha Gilet has 4: three large cargo pockets, and a zipped one for valuables.
Reflective details are also a must. dhb have included a central rear reflective, along with a rear strip across the top of the pockets and a reflective dhb logo on the front of the gilet. Subtle touches to help you be seen out on the road.
The Aeron System and fit
Designed with the same fit as the dhb Aeron collection, this gilet has a performance fit, built for having a mid-weight jersey underneath. The perfect companion is the dhb Aeron Equinox Long Sleeve Jersey, an early season jersey that can be ridden into winter with a gilet like this.
