Lightweight, and superior sun protection are yours with the Sol Skin Arm UV Protectors. Made from the new ultra-light Spectrum fabric they feature a UPF 50+ rating and ultra-light construction (30% lighter than the previous generation). These lightweight UV Protectors are perfect for warm weather rides.
Training Tip: Add to the cooling powers of these garments by soaking with water during a hot ride! Also, these provide great protection from poison oak.
Spectrum Fabric - specialy designed lightweight fabric with a 50+ UPF rating and 4-way stretch for a comfortable, contoured fit.
Silicon Gripper Opening - upper opening features grippy silicon to keep the warmers in place.
Label Free - no sewn in labels: size and care / content printed directly on inside surface.
80% polyester / 20% elastane blend features a dimpled surface that creates a highly efficient mechanical wicking effect that actually cools your skin.
Baffling that you could feel cooler by adding a layer, but between decreasing solar and improving wicking action, these sleeves really work! Very breathable and comfortable, no noticeable sunburn after 4-5 hours in direct sun. Size M fits me well (snug but not restrictive) and they stay pulled up. 5'8", 140#. I have not tried them mountain biking but 5 stars for road biking.

These work great and allow me to use less sunscreen. They are very comfortable in hot weather and stayed up well. It was nice to have these as an option to wear with short sleeved shirts.
Solar Arm Protection

These sleeves are comfortable for me and allow me to cycle without worrying about sun exposure.
Essential for southwest

I bike in the Tucson area and these arm protectors are great. With an SPF rating of 50 my arms are protected and when wetted down they provide outstanding evaporative cooling. The elastic is rubberized and they stay up on my biceps with only slight slippage after 45 minutes of riding, but easy to pull back up while riding. Same for the leggings. These are essential for my riding with the sun and heat here in Tucson.
Keep Your Arms Protected and Cool

The Sol Skin arm protectors work very well. My arms do not feel hot or sticky even in the bright mid day sunshine of south west Colorado.
Works as expected

The ordering was easy. The item works exactly as expected. I use them to avoid using so much sun screen (SPF 50).
