The Helios is all about sun protection and is subsequently UPF 50. This innovative product manages to be almost weightless (it packs extremely small, perfect for bikepacking) with exceptional ventilation, yet offers comprehensive protection thanks to its long sleeves and integrated hood.
The Helios Sun Shirt strikes a balance between being baggy enough to trap some cool air, and form-fitting enough to feel modern and high-tech.
The breathable panels on the underside of the arm you can really feel. When you're on the trail you can feel the air flowing through your jersey which is awesome, that was one of my big compliants about other sun shirts I've used.
The Helos Sun Shirt is a really nice option for people spending a lot of time in very hot, very exposed areas, and the roomy fit helps it trap a bit of cooler air around the body. It’s about as comfortable as you can hope for when the temperature is high and the sun is beating down, and well worth a look if that’s a frequent use case for you.
The Helios is really interesting piece with two distinct fabrics a 50 UPF sleeve and super lightweight body where if you hold it up to the light you can see pin pricks of light coming through and a quarter zip front for venting.

You know those nights when this bugs come out hungry…..this shirt is lightweight enough to wear and not overheated!!
I wear sun shirts, i really have to in some situations. Hands down great product. Different than other shirts that i have and fits me well. Ive already put it to the ride and sun test and few times and its cooler and airier than the fabric would seem out of the box. It’s generous without being baggy. The sleeves roll easily and seem to Stay put without any annoying dangly straps. I think i may have to buy the green as well. My only wish is some sort of thumb loop but thats a minor minor ask.
Comfortable and breathable to sun away and move sweat away from body / fast evaporation.
I wear this type of shirt on the water from Patagonia, NRS and O'Neil all the time but they don't breath as well as this shirt does on my bike. I am in the Water Sports Industry and learned years ago that you save a ton of energy covering up from the sun. This shirt is doing the job for me at least in 80 degree weather. I have not ridden with this shirt in anything hotter yet.
