RAPHA RCC × PELOTAN
We have teamed up with Rapha to offer a 20% discount to all RCC Members, on our range of high-performance sun protection for athletes.
Nothing beats the joy of riding your bike on a hot summer’s day, but nobody wants their Rapha kit to clash with lobster red skin.
Exposure to the sun is unavoidable in cycling; whether it be on training rides, gravel adventures, one-day races, criteriums or grand tours – it is impossible to remain immune to the harmful effects of UV radiation. Failing to protect skin from UV radiation has genuine impact on short-term performance as well as the body’s ability to recover effectively between efforts – not to mention the long-term risks associated with skin cancer.
Designed specifically for athletes, Pelotan is a ‘once-a-day’, water and sweat resistant sun protection brand that allows cyclists to stay in the saddle longer. The company’s flagship product is an alcohol-based spray which is clear, quickly absorbed, lightweight and breathable and has been tested as lasting up to 8 hours at SPF 30. What’s more, as members of 1% for the Planet, Pelotan pledge to donate at least 1% of annual sales to support non-profit organisations focused on the environment – meaning you can protect your skin and the planet at the same time.
Use your discount today by applying code RCCMEM at the checkout, and see why everyone from Grand Tour winners, Olympic hopefuls and weekend enthusiasts trust Pelotan to protect them, whenever they ride.
At Pelotan we firmly believe that sun protection can have a tangible impact on both performance and enjoyment on the bike, and as the Official Sun Protection Supplier to EF Pro Cycling and British Cycling as well as many other world class athletes, we want to ensure the sun doesn’t ruin your rides this summer – so we’ve pulled together some tips to implement into your routine.
