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.

I bought the biggest size and could not wear them because the band around the upper arm was way too tight. I weigh 185lbs, so while not tiny, not huge. I wish there was one size bigger or more flex in the arm bands that hold them in place. I gave them to my wife and she really likes them. They are thin and cool well. I would definitely buy a few more pairs if there was an XL.
I first ordered a small and at 120 lbs i needed the medium. now i have the sleeves and they are great!! super light and comfortable. Love them.
Nice material. Soft and comfy. Not too thick. Only 4 stars because there’s no stretch in upper cuff at top of arm.
Tight fit and long enough. Like a second skin I don't think about when they are on. A necessary piece of clothing in a Tucson summer.
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.
