The Sun Sleeve Yes, it’s blazing hot out and yes, we’re saying sleeves is your best bet to protection for extended

summer, hear us out. Because these aren’t any long sleeves – this is cycling gear that will
change your biking game for the better. Our sun sleeves are based on intelligent design that
blocks out harmful UV rays, while providing a cooling effect on your skin. It’s about protection
from the sun, not insulation, so there’s no chance of overheating. With this kind of arm

cooler times of the day during summer. You also no longer need to bother with icky, sticky

Arm and leg sleeves are easily the most versatile of all cycling clothing. Over the years these garments have evolved from
simple coverings to must-have gear developed with intelligent engineering. Different types of sleeves are suited to a
varying range of temperatures – warmers for cold weather and coolers for warm weather – and they can be worn by anyone,
whether you’re a pro racer or a weekend warrior. On warm days, arm and leg sleeves not only help cool your skin,
but they also offer UV protection from the sun’s harmful rays, which eliminates the need for sticky sunscreen.
On cooler rides, when it’s too cold for just a short-sleeved cycling shirt but not cold enough for multiple layers,
sleeves are ideal for that added layer of warmth. And with spring around the corner, these mild riding days will be plentiful,
which makes arm and leg sleeves the perfect investment for your cycling kit.
