Things you need to consider before buying your cyclewear with us.

Type of Cyclewear

Jerseys

Cycle Jerseys are a must need for getting out and about on your bike, suitable for all occasions. All our jerseys are incorporated with our QWIC technology.

FEATURES

Key features on your cycle jerseys to look out for

QWIC/QWIC+

All our jerseys and active hoodies are incorporated with our QWIC technology, which is the best fabric for quick wicking and quick drying properties. The high-tech polyester draws moisture away, allowing for quick evaporation. Qwic+ is the same technology, however incorporates an additional feature besides the quick wicking and drying properties. The plus means that the product is able to offer an anti-bacterial property, which is simply an odour control treatment, therefore conquering the big ‘sweat smell’ fear that everyone has when exercising.

Security Pockets

Our Jerseys contain a form of a compartment pocket on the rear which can be accessed via an invisible zip. Perfect for phones, keys and anything you need to refuel, keep secure. Note - the womens jerseys does not contain a pocket

Reflective Detail

Being safe is a priority when participating in outdoor activities. All of our jerseys are designed with reflective detail for enhanced visibility, in order to ensure that you can be seen at all times.

AEP

AEP Kinematics is one of Dare2B’s most premium technologies, infused into our leading products such as the Expatiate and Clarify jersey. It uses a 360 degree stretch fabric and allows an ergonomic fit with articulation to the sleeves of the garment. AEP apparel moulds to the contours of the body of the athlete sitting next to the skin comfortably and with an articulated cut, strategically placed seams and shaped panelling, the AEP design fits to the body like nothing else. Our AEP cycle product has been designed with ergonomics at the core, which provides premium support and comfort when in the cycling position. This allows the cyclist to concentrate on their performance, rather than the discomfort of their apparel.

Jackets/Windshells

Cycle Jacket

When the weather is not on your side, a cycle jacket is necessary to keep you dry and comfortable. These jackets are perfect for poor weather conditions, from heavy rain to colder temperatures, due to its water resistant properties.

Cycle Windshell

A very versatile jacket, both water resistant and wind resistant, packed with technologies to enhance comfort and safety.

FEATURES

Key features on your cycle jackets to look out for

Wind Resistant

All jackets and windshells are wind resistant, which is vital as the cold wind can steal body heat fast. The material provides a solid barrier between your skin and the wind, therefore keeping you warm.

Waterproof

Our cycle jackets are incorporated with our ARED technology, with a 5000 waterproof rating. This means that the lightweight ripstop fabric can hold a column of water 5 metres tall without breaching for 24 hours, ensuring you will remain dry during your cycling adventures.

Water Repellent

Our windshells are treated with a water repellent finish. The pores on the water-repellent fabric remain open so it can 'breathe', making the garments comfortable to wear, and it prevents the ‘stuffy’ feeling that tends to come with many coats.

VECT

Dare 2B’s Enkindle Windshell is designed with Vect technology. This fabric redistributes heat around the body when exercising, and can regulate the temperature keeping you cool and comfortable, instead of hot and bothered.

ILUS

Ilus windshell is a lightweight fabric that helps to eliminate windchill. With it’s advanced water repellency and breathability features, it makes it the ideal choice as an outer layer in milder conditions.

Reflective Detail

Being safe is a priority when out on the roads, and all jerseys are designed with reflective detail for enhanced visibility. Both Jackets and the Enkindle windshell are designed with Biomotion technology which is the use of a retro-reflective trim, strategically placed on moveable joints, which allows you to be detected as a moving human instead of a static object by emphasising the biological motions.
Our jackets also contain loops to attach LED lights.

Rear Pocket

Our jackets and Enkindle windshells contain a security pocket which can be accessed via an invisible zip. Perfect for phones, keys and anything you need to refuel!

Lightweight

Cycle wear will always have to be lightweight to enhance drag, and our product is no different. All jackets and windshells are lightweight, with the Mediant jacket weighing 380g based on a size medium.
