If you accidentally put these on in the winter instead of your arm warmers, you’ll be feeling like Frosty the Snowman by the end of your ride. The De Soto Arm Coolers are made entirely of Skin Cooler Stretch fabric. “What’s the deal with that Skin Cooler fabric?” I’m glad you asked! Skin cooler does not wick moisture away from your body like other materials, instead the special moisture-radiating composition actually offers a cooling effect by dissipating the moisture through channels to the outside of the fabric so just the lightest breeze will cool you down. They also block 75% of UVB rays, giving you another barrier between you and the sun, so they’re just a smart idea for those long summer training days.Features:
Skin Cooler - Skin Cooler™ fabrics block 75% of UVB rays (the burning rays), about as much as a cotton t-shirt or a bike jersey. We recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide, zinc oxide, and/or avobenzone.
