The sun is both a strong ally and a superior foe, meaning that we need it to survive, yet it's hell-bent on harming us should we choose to worship it with our bare skin. For this reason, we created our Deflect UV Arm Covers. Don't let the full-arm coverage fool you, as they aren't necessarily for keeping you warm—although they could hit the sweet spot on a very moderate day. Instead, they were developed to keep your skin protected from the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays, all without sacrificing anything to either comfort or temperature management. This is furthered with a next-to-skin xylitol cooling print that reduces body temperature, much like the feeling of cool, minty breath after chewing certain gums. To do so, we constructed them from a material that's about as fine as silk, our VaporRize fabric, that features a micro-denier construction, meaning that you'll find it to be supportive and accommodating in all the right places. This has been coupled with a right- & left-specific design that prevents any unwanted pinching or chafing, all while serving up a UV 50+ level of protection. - Next-to-skin, all-over xylitol print reacts to body heat and sweat, creating a cooling sensation and reducing body temperature by up to two degrees. - Silicone-infused fabric cuffs comfortably hold arm covers in place throughout your ride. - VaporRize knit fabrics are soft against the skin and rapidly wick away moisture to keep you dry and comfortable. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
When the conditions turn nasty, wearing a hat under your helmet isn't just a good idea—it's a necessity. But honestly, almost every hat that's designed for more than just soaking up summer sweat is simply too bulky to wear in tandem with a helmet. Well, lucky for you, Specialized's Element Hat checks every box on your protection and comfort wish list. To start, it's made from one of the most venerable materials in the business—Gore WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell. This material is wind- and water-resistant, as well as being highly efficient at wicking moisture away from the skin while remaining extremely breathable. In terms of fit, the hat was designed to be worn under a helmet, so there isn't any cumbersome bulk to compromise the fit or safety features of your helmet. And lastly, it has full-coverage over the ears to further protect against the elements. - Gore WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell provides resistance to both wind and water, without sacrificing anything to breathability, comfort, or layering ability. - Designed to be worn under a helmet, which minimizes bulk and ensures that your helmet's fit and position won't be compromised. - Full coverage over the ears minimizes exposure to keep you warm when the wind is biting. - Reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
A neck gaiter is one of the "must-have" pieces of any cool to cold weather ride, and this Prime-Series Thermal Neck Gaiter is no exception. With the use of Polartec Power Grid fabric, it keeps you plenty warm, without any added bulk. - 4-way stretch fabrication allows for easy pull-on and pull-off. - Fabric Content: 91% Polyester, 9% Spandex Knit. - Fabric outer surface is engineered to disperse moisture for fast evaporation. - Hydrophilic next-to-skin surface absorbs sweat and transfers it to the outside of your garment. - Lightweight garment keeps you extremely warm while preventing excess weight and bulkiness on your body. - Polartec Power Grid generates targeted touchpoints to manage moisture while grid design creates improved breathability.
There are days in the saddle where a jacket would count as overkill, yet it's still too cold to dress like it's full-on summertime. And for the colder version of these kind of days, Specialized created their Therminal Arm Warmers. They have a construction that's comprised of their Therminal fabric, which is designed to both insulate and manage moisture buildup. To do so, it has a brushed fleece interior with a light loft that pulls moisture away from skin to evaporate it at the material's surface. This loft also has the added benefit of insulation, which occurs by trapping tiny pockets of warmth between the skin and the fabric. At the exterior, you'll find light levels of wind and water protection that'll have you riding comfortably through mixed conditions. As for fit, the warmers have an articulated design that conforms to the arm and its various positions and movements while cycling. And to ensure that they stay set where you want them, they've included fold-over cuffs with a light silicone print to gently hold them in place. - Therminal fabrics feature a brushed fleece interior that insulates, while remaining highly breathable and effective at managing moisture. - Dual seam construction is simple and comfortable. - Light tack grippers keep the warmers in place throughout the motions of cycling. - Reflective elements increase your visibility to motorists in low-light conditions. - Deflect UV 50+ protects your skin from harmful ultraviolet rays.
