The fabric of this TRIBORD UV-resistant product blocks at least 98% of UVB radiation and 95% of UVA (UPF 50+). In compliance with the EN-13758-2 standard, it guarantees effective protection against the sun. It can be used both in and out of the water, for water or nautical sports. The integration of ceramic particles directly into the fibers of the product provides durable protection over time, even after washing.
What does UPF 50+ mean?
UPF is a sun protection factor (Ultra Violet Protection Factor) and is standardized 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 UVB and 98% of UVA rays.
These leggings help reduce rubbing against the board, especially around the knees when lying down on the board and inside the thighs when sitting on the board.
We have confirmed that irritation was indeed limited during two-hour sessions.
The body-shaping waistband helps the leggings stay in place even when you fall off the board in the waves. The cord located at the front of the waistband is designed to be attached to a UV protection T-shirt and prevent it from riding up.
We recommend wearing a Tribord 500 women's UV protection T-shirt (available in short sleeve and long sleeve versions) in addition to these leggings in order to be well protected.

Behavior when in the sun
Although these leggings protect you from the sun, phenomena such as reflections (from water, sand, etc.), heat, time of day, etc. must be taken into account. Wearing these leggings does not exempt the wearer from following the relevant advice: wear a UV protection T-shirt, wear sunglasses, wear a hat or cap, regularly apply an appropriate sun cream, drink regularly, etc.
