What's the SPF Rating for this top?

> UPF (Ultraviolet Protection Factor) is a rating for sun protective textiles and clothing. Unlike SPF (Sun Protection Factor) that measures only UVB, UPF measures both UVA and UVB.

> Hyperactive fabric has been tested to a maximum UPF 50+. In practical terms this extends your no-burn time by 50 times over bare skin. Designs with a stand-up collar and long sleeves maximise protection from the sun's UV rays. Yank 'em up if it gets too stifling.

Washing Instructions?

> HyperActive tops enjoy a warm machine wash. Try to avoid cold-water detergents and those with bleach. The cold-water varieties have little enzymes that are super-charged to brave the cold but can damage technical fabrics and cause skin irritation. Bleach strips the dye and may also cause irritation. As a rule of thumb, product that is easy on the planet is also easy on your body. Select a mild plant-based soap like Ecover, Ecostore, Earthwise or Aware.

> Hand washing is sometimes the only option on tour, but a washing machine rinses more thoroughly and is preferable if you have the choice.

> HyperActive tops will be almost dry out after the spin cycle of your washing machine so using a dryer is unnecessary - if you must then choose a warm (not hot) cycle.

What is the difference between the Zest and Frenzy

> Both are summer specific designs. The lightweight HyperActive fabric is packed with technology to keep you cool and dry as. It dries at the speed of light - great when reduced to hand washing on tour - and even performs its quick-drying magic in the wet under a rain jacket.

> The Zest is a slim, 'performance' fit while the Frenzy has a more relaxed 'regular' fit.

> The Zest has twin elasticised angle pockets with a single zipped centre pocket. The Frenzy has no rear pockets, but a single backpack friendly zipped hip pocket. Perfect for riding with a backpack.
