My favorite band is Rush. One of their old songs I identify with more and more is I Think I'm Going Bald. If I don't ride with a cap, I get crazy vent tan lines or burns on my skull. This cap does the trick. It's light and comfortable and keeps the sweat out of my eyes. I've had one for a couple of years with no noticeable wear. Highly recommended
I wear this scullcap under my helmet. It is thin, it doesn't bulk up and make the helmet fit tight. Although it is designed for warm weather, I find it helps cut a bit of chill on cool days too. It does not go over the ears. For me, it's a good piece to wear from high 50's through low 70's. Since it does retain a small amount of heat, I tend not to wear the cap when it's really hot, although, it is a trade off from a sun burned scalp (as I'm bald).
I use them every ride starting when temps hit 50 degrees, I live in Wisconsin and early season rides start out in the 30's, keeps my hair from ripping out, comfortable one size fits all, no sweat running into my sunglasses, protects bald spot on my head from direct sun. The only thing I don't like is I don't have a couple more of them.
I've tried many skullcaps to keep the sweat off my brow and so far this is the best one out there. It fits tight and keep the sweat from dripping on my face as I ride long miles in the sun all summer long.
I've tried many summer caps over the years and this one is my Favorite as it keeps the sweat off and last longer on your rides. I will continue to buy this cap until something better comes along.
I have little hair on the head anymore so I waneted this skull cap to catch the sweat and keep it out of my eyes. IT WORKS. I was afraid it would be too hot but I rode in 90 degree weather the other day and seemed fine. Was a little warm on the head but NO sweat in eyes..and that is good -)
WENT FOR A RIDE ON A ON A REALLY HOT HUMID DAY AND AFTER AN HOUR THE CAP WAS SOAKED AND SO WERE THE HELMET PADS...NOT SO SURE BUT MAYBE I'D OF BEEN BETTER OFF WITHOUT IT...THINK I'LL KEEP IT FOR COOLER RIDES.
PS IT FITS JUST FINE.
This skullcap fits well. I like the design with no tying knot at the back. It makes it more comfortable under the helmet, and looks more streamlined. Works well to wick the sweat from your head and prevent it from dripping in your eyes.
This skull cap does an excellent job of wicking away sweat and keeping it out of your eyes, even on high output rides in humid 95 degree conditions. Airflow through the top is also excellent so no over heating from trapped heat. Its low volume adds virtually no bulk under your helmet and the trim-free design does not leave you with a fossil forehead after your ride. I plan to purchase another one.
