These sleeves are made from the same soft and comfortable Sensitive® Sculpt fabric as our bib shorts, which is effective at blocking potentially damaging UV rays to the tune of UPF50+ and very breathable. These arm sleeves are perfect for warmer conditions but also come in handy on more chilly days or longer descents. They fold up extremely small, so they’re great to stick in your pockets for your next big mountain day.
Similar to the SPF you find in sunscreen, UPF refers to the amount of UV rays which can get through to reach the skin. A UPF rating of 50+ means that 97.5% of the sun’s harmful rays are blocked from reaching the skin. Unlike sunscreen which must be reapplied, sleeves provide a reliable barrier. You don’t have to worry about tan-lines and be protected from harmful UVA and UVB rays that will damage your skin.
