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.
When applied to clothing this means that the wearer perspires less, feels better and is capable of greater performance.
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.
OUR CUSTOMERS ARE SAYING:
I just received my second shipment and new order of bike kits from Pactimo. I ordered tri kits from you, too. I have to tell you I love the new kits. Everyone loved the tri kits. I went with Pactimo and ordered the bike kits. One of the main reasons was because it was a pleasure to work with our Account Manager, Amy. She made the process so easy. I just opened the bike kits and I love them. I wanted to let you know that. — Rick (FL) - Nov 2013
