Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
When selecting your size, start with your jersey size, then determine the length based on where you fit within the range.

Love these sun sleeves. They're lightweight, and stay cool even on hot climbs. Only issue I had is that they run a bit small, and I needed to return them for a larger size - but the return/exchange was quick and easy.
We spent 5 hours in the saddle and in the sun above 9,000' on July 4th. I bought a pair for my husband and a pair for myself. Fortunately, they are ridiculously good at blocking the sun and keeping you cool. Unfortunately, mine slipped down on descents and were a bit distracting. I guess I need to lift more weights - ha! Seriously, though, these are an exceptionally effective item. Thanks, Velocio!
Wore these at high altitude in the sun during Ride the Rockies and really liked how they performed. Very nice silky fabric, quite comfortable, and no sun burns!
I really like these arm screens. I have been riding in some very hot conditions in the mountains of western North Carolina, and the sleeves have been effective sun screen while actually keeping my arms cool. Initially very tight around the wrists, but have loosened up a bit with use. Like other reviewers, I would appreciate some other colors since I imagine that the white May get dingy after lots of use. But overall a terrific product.
I'm a triathlete with normal-size arms, not the wafer-thin arms typical of true cyclists. While I normally wear a small jersey, I had to size up for the sun sleeves. The material does not give much and I couldn't get the small onto even my forearm. Thankfully the return was hassle free and the medium is working well.
