Arm protectors have a number of benefits for runners and cyclists such as regulating temperature, protecting against the sun and increased visibility (and therefore making running and cycling safer!). Falke’s arm protectors deliver on these points, and more.
Not only do they offer UV protection of SPF50+, they are approved by the Cancer Association of South Africa.
The brand’s Coollayr yarn technology keeps the wearer cool when temperatures rise and the arm protectors also feature moisture management. In addition, strategically placed mesh panels facilitate ventilation and keep the arms dry.
Safety and being seen is important, especially to runners and cyclists who are out in low light conditions. To help, Falke has added reflective print on the elbow joints.
The arm protectors are made from a mix of 75% Polyamide, 21% Elastane and 4% Polyester.
They come in three sizes (Xsmall, small-medium, and large-xlarge) to allow the athlete to find the perfect fit and there is also a six colours to choose from: white, neon lime, royal blue, black, light aqua and lipstick.
