How much time do you spend in the sun? Do you get sunburned easily? (we do!)

It got us to thinking about the UV Index in Australia – which tells us the daily danger of solar UV radiation intensity (how easily we can get burned).

Today, at 1pm, each and every capital city had an ‘extreme’ UV rating. Darwin came in at 15.3, Sydney at 14, and Melbourne at 12.4.

YIKES! Your chances of getting sunburned today are high, and we know that caring (and covering) our skin is becoming more and more important.

If you want to keep cool, but also covered in the heat, it is best to grab a Performa Ride Technical Shirt. They wick sweat, dry quickly, and are really lightweight.
