Designed specifically for cyclists, Pelotan is a ‘once-a-day’, water and sweat resistant sun protection brand that allows riders to stay in the saddle longer, perfecting those ultra-sharp tanlines from sunrise to sunset. Our flagship product is an alcohol-based spray which is clear, quickly absorbed, lightweight and breathable and has been tested as lasting up to 8 hours at SPF 30 – meaning you can focus on a full day in the saddle without risking skin damage.

Having won no less than 6 Tours de France, one Vuelta and one Giro d’Italia along with a number of iconic stage races, Classics and Monuments since their foundation in 2010, Team Sky are one of the most iconic and dominant cycling teams of all time. Synonymous with the concept of marginal gains and evaluating every possible advantage, after some initial tests the team will use Pelotan for the 2019 season.

Tom Austen of Pelotan said “Exposure to the sun is unavoidable in professional cycling; whether it be on training rides, one-day races, stage races or grand tours – it is impossible to remain immune to the harmful effects of UV radiation. Failing to adequately protect skin from UV radiation has genuine impact on short-term performance as well as the body’s ability to recover effectively between efforts – not to mention the long-term risks associated with skin cancer. At Pelotan we genuinely believe sun protection can have a tangible impact on both performance and recovery and we are incredibly excited to see some of the most famed riders in history and a cohort of the sport’s future champions using Pelotan as they aim for the top of the podium once more this season.”

Having launched Pelotan across Europe in 2018 to widespread acclaim and stellar reviews, the UK based company are significantly expanding their retailer network, broadening the product range and working on campaigns at every level of the cycling community – from the professional peloton to weekend club riders.
