All of our sun protection components are laboratory-tested by our engineers. They meet the current standard: EN 13758-2. We conduct tests on all of the materials used before starting production. We also have our own measuring equipment in our laboratories to supplement the tests conducted in external laboratories. The products are laboratory-tested when wet and dry as well as in use whilst worn (with the stretch that occurs during use).
Developed and tested by our design teams in Hendaye, France. The components used for this product are laboratory-tested to ensure the best possible quality and durability.
For surfers wishing to protect themselves from the sun and limit their sensations of the cold in water at >20°C.
Rinse in fresh water after each use. Do not leave to dry in the sun.
Restrictions on use
Only covered parts are protected.
FEATURES OF THE PRODUCT
Reduced thermal shock.
The fleece interior allows better insulation from the cold and thus limits thermal shock when re-entering the water.
Protection from UV - PROFILTER
The knit of the TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). With respect to the EN-13758-2 standard, this guarantees effective protection from the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The direct integration of ceramic particles in the fibre of the product provides durable protection with time, even after washing.
The polyester textile naturally allows rapid drying after being in the water. Additional water-repellent treatment prevents water absorption to limit shivering if wind is present. Drying is also facilitated. The effects of this treatment will wear off after 5 or 6 machine washes, so to increase the lifetime of the treatment, it is preferable to rinse in fresh water rather than wash with detergent.
Behaviour in the sun
Although this T-shirt allows protection from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from the water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc., must be taken into account. When you wear this T-shirt, you must follow the revelant conduct: sunglasses, hat or cap, regular application of adapted sun cream, drinking regularly, etc.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardised worldwide. It defines the protection level of a fabric and more precisely the proportion of UV rays it lets through. To meet the standards, it must block at least 95% of UV rays. UPF 50+ means that the fabric blocks at least 95% of UVA and 98% of UVB rays.
The product's knit reduces the hold of sand in the textile.
This UV-resistant T-shirt protects against rubbing and chafing due to contact with the surfboard or bodyboard. It may also be used under a wetsuit to protect from chafing, particularly around the neck. We carefully studied the tight-fitting cut of this Tribord Top and designed the seamless panels under the arms to limit irritation caused by paddling movements when surfing.
The Tribord UV-resistant top has a drawstring at the hips. This lets you tighten the top so that it stays firmly in place. It has also been studied so that the drawstring of your swim shorts can be attached to it to stop the top from riding up while you surf.
