Everything you need for Riding In The Sun

sun safety check list

Living on Maui we all know how important it is to stay safe in the sun. Here at West Maui Cycles we have everything you need to maximize your sun protection with ease and style. 

1- Jerseys UPF 50+

What is UPF? UPF stands for Ultraviolet Protection Factor. This clothing is designed specifically for sun protection and is produced using specially altered fabrics containing UV inhibiting ingredients.  Take a look at our selection in our online store

2- UPF +50 Specialized shorts and Bibs.

Our shorts are UPF 50+ and are integrated with Coldblack fabric technology.  Coldblack® is proven to reflect sun rays and keep you considerably cooler. Take a look at this article from Runners world discussing its effectiveness.

3- SolRx sun screen.

Sun screen is a vital if you're riding your bike in Maui. Choosing the right sunscreen for you can be a challenge. When I'm looking for a sun screen I want something that is effortless; something I don't have to re-apply every 30 minutes, something that isn't greasy. At West Maui cycles you can buy just that! SolRx is a fantastic paraben and sal free sunscreen. It outperforms all other sunscreens, with one application lasting as long as 8 hours, even against sweat and water. We Love this sun screen too because of it's 'Reef-safe' qualities. So when you've finished riding you can jump into the ocean guilt free!
