Exposure to the sun is unavoidable in cycling; whether it be on training rides, sportives, trips around the park with the family, one-day races, commutes, stage races, jollies or grand tours – whatever level and whatever discipline you ride, part of the joy of cycling is being outdoors in nature, but it is important to protect your skin all year round. Failing to adequately protect skin from UV radiation has genuine impact on short-term performance as well as the body’s ability to recover effectively between efforts.
Pelotan is a high-performance sun protection designed specifically to improve performance, maximise comfort and allow cyclists around the world to avoid costly sunburn. Trusted by World Tour teams, Olympic Champions and some of the most iconic riders of all time, Pelotan is ‘once a day’ sun protection, allowing cyclists to stay in the saddle longer, perfecting those ultra-sharp tan lines from sunrise to sunset.
We passionately believe that it is important to adopt a proper sun care routine in order to avoid skin damage, which can impair training, overall performance, recovery and cause serious health problems. Starting in 2020 we are delighted to be the Official Sun Protection Supplier of British Cycling and Great Britain Cycling Team to raise awareness of sun protection in cycling and work at every level of the sport to provide high-performance solutions.
We are regularly involved with many events in the cycling world, including various industry events, sportives, races and joint-rides with our key partners and retailers across the summer season. These events help us further communicate our message and demonstrate the importance of high-performance sun protection to cyclists of all levels.
