Advanced Ergonomic Performance is infused with our cycle wear to give optimum fit and performance for the most grueling of rides. Cycle wear has been anatomically contoured to fit in the riding position giving less volume and making the garments more compact.
AEP Kinematics analyses the body’s points of motion during athletic performance. Using data collected in our studies, AEP Kinematics introduces a new concept, specifically designed for each activity, to enhance both agility and power, using 360 degree stretch fabric, an ergonomic fit and advance articulation.
Garments engineered with Dare 2b’s Ared fabrics provide truly durable waterproofness, keeping water out through prolonged use in harsh conditions and demanding terrain. We measure the waterproof level or hydrostatic head of all our garments and offer a full hierarchy of performance, starting at 5,000mm all the way up to 20,000mm. Our Ared garments have been tested in real-life conditions extensively. If you are not satisfied with any of our Ared products we will repair, replace or refund your purchase for up to 3 years. All Ared products are classified as truly windproof and hold up against the most demanding standards.
Ared V02 and stretch is our most advanced waterproof technology. Garments using this are ideal for high energy activities with uncompromised freedom of movement and breathability. We ensure under testing that during heavy exertion our fabrics must breathe well to a standard of 10,000/m2/24hrs.
Biomotion Reflective Technology is our latest development in to the use of retro-reflective trims. Research into the placement of retro-reflective on garments has shown significant increases in performance when placed on moveable joints. Biomotion allows a person to be detected as a human rather than an object. We have utilised and placed reflective strategically to optimise the wearer’s visibility at greater distances, which allows us to use less but more effective reflective.
Iloft down is designed to retain warmth when the weather gets cold. We only use the highest quality responsibly sourced duck down in our products. The fill power of down is an indicator of 2 important features; warmth-to-weight ratio and compressibility.
Iloft wool fill gives increased breathability and performance in humid conditions. Using wool keeps the body at optimum temperature and wicks away moisture.

Dare 2b iLUS Softshell garments are engineered for the active user. It combines the comfort of a soft mid layer and the water resistance of a shell in one garment, which makes it perfect all year round piece. Dare 2b iLUS Softshell provides breathability and wind resistance keeping the user comfortable in a wide variety of conditions. The fabric is also treated with a water resistant treatment to allow water to bead off its surface to stop it from soaking into the fibres.
Our Seamsmart technology eliminates seams in the most important areas. Reduced seams give more comfort and durability with an improved fit to offer non restrictive movement for a better performance.
Vect is a conductive print technology using Graphene compound from a volcanic substance. The repetitive continuous print redistributes heat regulating the body’s temperature. This soft thermo conductive ceramic coating is used on the inside of a product that absorbs the heat. This innovative use of ceramic material between your skin and fabric creates a personal microclimate.
