Designed to offer protection against damaging UV rays these knee skins perform great in warm conditions, but also offer added protection in cooler conditions. Perfect for days in the mountains of hot exposed climbs and cool descents.
Castelli can officially only rate these warmers at UPF 50+, but in their laboratory tests they actually blocked 99.8 percent of damaging UV rays. Using a polyester base they found this it is not only more effective than nylon at blocking UV rays but is also much better at keeping you dry, which means these skins are better in both cooler and warmer conditions. Castelli have kept the construction very clean to eliminate seams that can rub, and used double-sided silicone elastic to make sure they stay in place. They fold up extremely small, so they’re great to stick in your pockets for your next big mountain day.
Castelli proudly produce high performance cycling apparel. Since 1876, they've been the tailor for the champions. It was their innovative mindset which brought the earliest heroes & legends like Binda, Coppi and Bartali. Castelli cycle clothing became legendary too inventing the skinsuit, the silk jersey, pockets on jerseys, and the first LYCRA® short used in professional racing.
