STORY BY Patrick 20th July 2023

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 hike and trail market, Pelotan is currently the official sun protection supplier of British Cycling and British Triathlon. 

Pelotan is an alcohol-based product which is 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 hills and paths 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 the hike and trail sectors, with our flagship Spray and Roll On products. No more faffing with backpacks and pockets to apply more sunscreen during the day, simply apply one coat and you’re good to hike 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. Lauded by everyone from Rouleur, Cycling Weekly and Cyclist magazine in the cycling circuit as well as 220 Triathlon and other multi-sport outlets. Pelotan will be selecting new hike and trail ambassadors to help with their brand awareness.
