Mavic has a special filter on their website where you can display all the sun blocking items. I have the arms warmers, perfect so far.

yea, it looks like they are pretty much the only ones. Sportful used to do one. All the googling came up with was Pearl and Louis Garneau.

Aren't most kit SPF these days?

Rapha used to have big warnings on their superlightweight jersey - not spf - but all of the others were SPF40.
A cursory look at rapha, the ones that are spf40 have in the details column
The champsys stuff says uv 50+ on specific fabrics.

I actually thought most wouldn't be. I don't know the tech behind it, but I would have thought it would require some special addition to the fabric to give UV protection.

I'll have a look at Rapha

Hmm.
could be wrong. Just had a look at some other random brands.
Q36.5 specifically say SPF50, but Capo and Ornot don't. Castelli only say it on their arm/leg sun sleeves.

I find Capo and ornot not claiming spf odd, being californian brands.
Here in Aus, we've been smashed with skin cancer awareness ads for the last 30+ years, which is probably why I feel the above is odd...

Everything in DHB's "Blok" range on Wiggle is 50+ UV protection I believe

I wonder how many cyclists do wear SPF/UPF clothing or even use sunscreen?

I never really thought about it until friends told me I got darker from cycling. If I was going to the beach, I wouldn't even hesitate putting on sunscreen.

I use lots of sunscreen so far. Looking at my skin it seems my jerseys are quite SPF (castelli)

Depends where you are from/social culture I guess? As I mentioned, over here they smash in to you, wear sunscreen if you are going out and playing sport, etc.

If I recall correctly there was a GCN ask-the-pros video about sunscreen - 50-50 whether they do or not.
