Draw the line.

As cyclists, we spend a lot of time in the sun, so Pearl Izumi designed the Sun Sleeves to act as single-application sunscreen in order to draw a line between us and harmful UV radiation. The newest model of Sun Sleeves enjoys a higher UPF rating (50 instead of 40) and wider grip bands for a more secure fit.

Each color now also has different cooling technologies. The black option includes In-R-Cool material, which uses Coldblack technology to reflect the sun's warming rays. The white option uses Ice-fil, which involves adding a xylitol coating to the fabric's threads that reacts to moisture, getting cooler when it gets wet. Both options incorporate Pearl's Elite transfer fabric to wick moisture and keep you comfortable during the hot, sunny days when you'll really appreciate the Sun Sleeves' high UPF rating.

Here's what others have to say...


Great lightweight protective sun sleeves

  • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

These sun sleeves are great because they fit me and stay up, not to mention keeping my arms protected and cool. They breathe well too. I wear the medium. The size chart is a little odd, so I recommend you purchase two sizes to make sure one fits. The price is good for these. They stay up well with the wide grippers and don't irritate my skin like some others do.


Comfortable sleeves

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I bought these sleeves in its two colors, they work perfectly keeping my arms cool and protected from the sun; by cool I do not mean that you will feel your arms like being into a fridge but you wont feel they are burning =P during sunny days, also you wont have the feeling that by removing them your arms will be cooler.
The elastic area at the top keeps the sleeves steady and comfortable, you can easily forget that you are wearing them.

Did you notice any difference between the two colors? Is one preferable over the other for different weather?

The difference is minimal, so when the weather is pretty warm and I know there will be mud in the road I prefer the black ones, because I just wash them once and the mud stains wont be visible, the white ones need to be in a bucket with water and soap for around 4 days to vanish mud stains.


These really work.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

They stay cool -and- protect your arms from sunburn during mid-day rides in the Summer.

Also: great QC and fabrics from Pearl Izumi -per usual. Fit: I'm 5'9" 180 lbs. The M fit great (the L was too long). These stretch to fit circumference-wize. Don't buy ones too long (they bunch up).

In sum, these sun-sleeves look great, stay up, and really work. I love them.
