Coldblack® to keep you cool!

Dark colors heat up stronger when exposed to direct sunlight compared to light colors. This no longer needs to happen!

Now there is coldblack®, a special finishing technology for textiles which reduces heat build-up and provides reliable protection from UV rays.


The Coldblack® Advantage

Light colored textiles reflect both visible and invisible rays of sunlight, meaning both heat and light. Dark colored textiles absorb both types of rays and therefore absorb heat. coldblack® reduces the absorption of heat rays particularly in the case of darker colors and in all types of textiles. The result is tangibly better heat management.

Many textiles worn in the summertime or exposed to the sun offer poor protection from damaging UV rays. The coldblack® technology guarantees a minimum UPF 30 protection when applied to any textile in any color without affecting the look or feel of the product. As a result, textiles with coldblack® can make an effective contribution to protecting against harmful UV rays.

Optimal protection from heating up due to sunlight
Because textiles finished with coldblack® heat up less in all colors compared with material without a coldblack® finish.

Textiles stay cool to the touch
When applied to clothing this means that the wearer perspires less, feels better and is capable of greater performance.
Reliable protection from UV rays (minimum UPF 30)
Protection from UV-A and UV-B rays. UV-A rays accelerate the aging of skin. UV-B rays cause a pigment change, resulting in long term browning. Without effective UPF protection (Ultraviolet Protection Factor), aggressive oxygen molecules are released which cause sunburn or which can lead to the formation of melanoma.

“Lori has been a pleasure to work with. She is very skilled in taking my caveman-like descriptions of color and design, and translating them into something that impresses me. She has been beyond patient with my many questions and revisions. In short, Lori is even more impressive than the quality of your jerseys. I may be demanding, but I also recognize excellence when I see it. Lori is doing an excellent job for Pactimo, and I wanted you to know it. “ — Lane, Fletcher Farley 1/6/2016

“The quality and fit of the garments is first rate, and I’ve received nothing short of impeccable customer service since I’ve started working with Pactimo.” — Mike, FLUID Company, 12/31/2015

“Pactimo is my favorite cycling wear. I try to wear Pactimo exclusively cause of the quality. I tell every cyclist I know to buy Pactimo. Pactimo is no doubt the best cycling gear and the best part is the quality. A friend of mine had a pair of bibs that a tear occurred in the stitching, Pactimo replaced it for free. That to me is worth every dollar spent when a company backs their product.” — Griggs, Police Unity Tour 12/17/2015

“The customer service we received was top notch. Our account manager, Sabrina, has absolutely exceeded our expectations. We couldn’t be more pleased. I believe our success story has already convinced one team to make the switch for their next kit order.” — Petticoat Assassins, 11/01/2015

“Initially things looked bleak in terms of receiving the jerseys in time for the Bike MS event. My poor organizational skills put you and my team in a bind. Nevertheless you and the Pactimo team and FedEx came through in spades! On behalf of Team MS Curitol, our sponsors and myself we are grateful for your amazing service and support!!!” — Dan - July 2015
