Sun Protection for Sports

Jul 15, 2020

Sun protection: yes or no?!

Experts recommend sun protective clothing especially for children and people with very light skin. However, during summer it can also be considered essential for everyone who spends a lot of time outside. That surely applies to athletes who often practice for hours in the open. For this purpose, Bauerfeind Sports Compression products are the perfect combination of reliable, regularly tested sun protection and a pleasant compression in order to improve your sports performance.

 

Sun protection clothing: giving everything during summer

Spring and summer are most athletes' favorite seasons. The sun and warmth provide you with additional energy when it comes to performing best during training. However, as much as the sun benefits you, you should not face it unprotected.

Enjoy the summer with sports and sun protection clothing

If you go running, play tennis or basketball, or cycle on a regular basis during spring and summer, you sure know about the risk of getting sunburnt during sports. The World Health Organization (WHO) advises using sun protection clothing even from UV Index 3 which applies to most times during April to September in Europe. A T-shirt surely helps a bit, but arms and legs still remain exposed. Therefore, it surely is good news that our Bauerfeind Sports Compression Sleeves for arm, upper leg, and lower leg provide you with a UPF of 80 – even in a wet or stretched condition. The effectiveness of this sun protection clothing has been tested by the International Test Association for Applied Protection against UV Radiation meeting the requirements of UV Standard 801.


Let summer come! With the Bauerfeind Sports Compression Sleeves you improve blood circulation, help your muscles to regenerate faster – and effectively prevent sunburn.
