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 micro-denier 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.
Look up. Yes, if you're lucky enough to be outside, that's the sun above. Now touch the top of your head. Yes, this susceptible portion of your body is being constantly berated by that sun above. Over time, this could lead to some issues, which is why Specialized developed their Deflect UV Cycling Cap. It's not a substitution for sunscreen, per se, but it will help combat the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays. - Even finer than silk, VaporRize micro-denier fabric delivers unparalleled moisture transfer and UV protection. - Designed to be worn under a helmet, which minimizes bulk and ensures that your helmet's fit and position won't be compromised. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful, ultraviolet rays.
As winter progresses, minimizing exposure is paramount, but Specialized isn't talking about going to lengths like chaining yourself to the trainer for the season. Instead, learning how to layer with pieces like their drirelease Merino Neck Gaiter will make the difference between packing on the pounds indoors and enjoying the season while riding outdoors. This gaiter fits comfortably over the neck, and with a bit of ingenuity, you can easily wear it as a facemask or beanie should the weather necessitate it. It's constructed from drirelease Merino with FreshGuard, which is a wool blend with natural insulating and warming properties. The material is also naturally adept at managing moisture and blocking odor, so you don't have to worry about icy moisture buildup while you're riding in the winter months. - Drirelease Merino with FreshGuard naturally insulates for warmth, neutralizes odor, and wicks away moisture to keep you dry. - An elastic drawcord allows you to cinch the gaiter in order to lock-in warmth in extreme cold. - The gaiter easily converts to a beanie for times off the bike or for when you need to a little added protection under your helmet. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful, ultraviolet rays.
