Profilter UV protection
The fabric of this TRIBORD UV product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibres of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.
The polyester fabric naturally enables rapid drying after being in the water. An additional water-repellent treatment prevents water absorption to limit chill effects in the wind. It also aids drying. The effects of this treatment will diminish after 5 or 6 machine washes; therefore to increase the life of the treatment, use a clear water rinse instead of washing with detergent.
Behaviour when in the sun
Although this t-shirt protects against the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from water, sand …), heat, time of day, etc. must be taken into account. Wearing this t-shirt does not exempt the wearer from following the relevant advice: wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
The product’s knit reduces the hold of sand in the textile.
This UV t-shirt has a loose fit to ensure it’s easy to fasten. If you prefer greater comfort during rowing in particular, to limit irritation, choose a more fitted model.
Stays in place
