The sun is both a strong ally and a superior foe, meaning that we need it to survive, yet it's hell-bent on harming us should we choose to worship it with our bare skin. For this reason, we created our Deflect™ UV Arm Covers.
Don't let the full-arm coverage fool you, as they aren't necessarily for keeping you warm—although they could hit the sweet spot on a very moderate day. Instead, they were developed to keep your skin protected from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, all without sacrificing anything to either comfort or temperature management. This is furthered with a next-to-skin xylitol cooling print that reduces body temperature, much like the feeling of cool, minty breath after chewing certain gums. To do so, we constructed them from a material that's about as fine as silk, our VaporRize™ fabric, that features a microdenier construction, meaning that you'll find it to be supportive and accommodating in all the right places. This has been coupled with a right & left specific design that prevents any unwanted pinching or chafing, all while serving up a UV 50+ level of protection.
- Next-to-skin, all-over xylitol print reacts to body heat and sweat, creating a cooling sensation and reducing body temperature by up to two degrees.
- Silicone-infused fabric cuffs comfortably hold arm covers in place throughout your ride.
- VaporRize™ knit fabrics are soft against the skin and rapidly wick away moisture to keep you dry and comfortable.
- Deflect™ UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
