- What's the official STW Riding Sunscreen this year?
Used to always get banana boat but it went rubbish. I like a spray not a cream if poss, just prefer how it goes on, but main thing is long life/not getting sweated off. Any suggestions?Posted 2 years ago
I always use P20, it marks white kit, but I don’t have any white kit, so meh.Posted 2 years ago

Riemann P20 when I’m in Greece – back on the Isle of Man sun’s a rare thing anyway.Posted 2 years ago
something waterproof….. look on the ingredient label for triacontanyl-PVP, VP-Eicosene and VP-hexadecene
and remember when you wipe your face with a snot rag that you are wiping the suncream off again.Posted 2 years ago

Dunno about “official” but because I’m in the water I just use this stuff for riding too.Posted 2 years ago
Not a spray, you have to get right slimy and sticky with it as part of the initiation process, but its really good stuff.. small dab on the back of the neck, small smear on the forearms and knee caps and thats about it. Then wash your hands otherwise gripping the bars becomes comical.
Another vote for Prosport here. Started using it for windsurfing and now also for all sports as its waterproof, sweatproof and lasts 8 hours (lasted even longer during a couple of long distance triathlons).Posted 2 years ago
I prefer a cream to the liquids as less danger of missing bits.
You might now struggle to find it under the Prosport name, now being sold under the SolRX brand. http://www.solrx.co.uk/
Ambre Solaire factor 50 spray. No rubbing in. Used P20 but didn’t like the staining. I don’t tan (MC1R homozygote)Posted 2 years ago

Boots do a “roll-on” stick, like a deodorant. I like it because it’s zero mess. Oh, and seems to work.Posted 2 years ago
Riemann P20 here.
The way I sweat gives it a good test and I haven’t burned since using it.
I haven’t noticed any staining to be honest.Posted 2 years ago
P20 on arms/legs.
Some kids one (I think Boots own brand usually) on my face, because P20 stings my eyes if I’m sweating enough for it to run into them.Posted 2 years ago
