Effectively captures and dissipates sweat in a humid NYC summer before it seeps into the helmet pads. Keeps the helmet smell free, keeps sweat out of your eyewear when you hit a bump in the road.
I just completed a two hour indoor ride and the headband worked way better than I had expected. I found that it was best worn just barely over my eyebrows. Normally, my eyes continually sting with sweat. Today, I had some drips off the nose but zero in the eyes. Itï¿½s like magic.
The product is thin and light, so it would even work for weight weenies. Of course, it would get much heavier with use on a hot day. Itï¿½s very thin, so it fits nicely under a helmet and might even make it more comfortable.
It seems like very little material for the money, but given how well it keeps the sweat from my eyes, itï¿½s a bargain.
This headband may be good for summer rides, as it fits well under a helmet. But its absorbing/wicking qualities are not the best. My older Castelli headband works better.
In the midst of your typical east coast humid heat wave, I can go full gas knowing my sweat won't migrate to my helmet pads with this headband. Little things sometimes are worth a review.
