Pelotan is a ‘once-a-day’, water and sweat resistant sun protection brand offering up to eight hours of protection at SPF 30. Now launching to the wintersports market in time for the winter season 2021-22, Pelotan is currently the official sun protection supplier of British Triathlon and British Triathlon.
Pelotan is an alcohol-based product which is a no-mess, clear, quickly absorbed, lightweight and breathable. It has been laboratory tested as lasting up to 8 hours at SPF 30, even with sweat – meaning you can get a full day on the slopes without risking skin damage. It offers broad spectrum protection against both UVA and UVB rays, blocking 97% of the latter, which causes sunburn, contains no parabens or preservatives and has been dermatologically tested to ensure it does not cause irritation.
Tom Austen, Managing Director of Pelotan, said: “Working across multiple outdoor sports, we have seen how important it is to recognise the impact of unprotected sun exposure on performance, recovery and long-term health and, having had huge success in cycling and triathlon, we have decided to expand to wintersports, with our flagship Spray and Roll on products. No more faffing with ski gloves to apply more sunscreen during the day, simply apply one coat and you’re good to ski or ride all day.”
To date, Pelotan have worked with Grand Tour Winners, Olympic Gold Medallists, IRONMAN World Champions and multiple World, European and National Champions across Cycling and Triathlon, firmly establishing them as the choice of elite performers around the world.
