Headsweats Tour de France Performance Shorty Cycling Skull Cap

06 Aug

This summer has been one of the hottest on record. I’ve been out on several days when the temperature has topped 100 degrees—that might not be a big deal to those of you who live south of the Mason-Dixon Line, but for those of us in the Upper Midwest it has been unbearable (you Southerners are welcome to come ride with us Yankees this winter when the temperature drops well below zero). One item that has made this summer a bit more bearable is the Headsweats Tour de France Performance Shorty Cycling Skull Cap.

Headsweats Tour de France Cycling Skull Cap

I always wear a Headsweats skull-cap under my helmet for three main reasons. First, the terry sweatband that runs around the inside of the cap keeps the sweat out of my eyes and from running down my face. Second, the Coolmax fabric on the rest of the cap is very breathable and keeps me cool by wicking away moisture from my head. Third, I keep my hair very short during the summer and a skull-cap keeps me from getting a sunburn on my forehead that matches the vents on my helmet.

This product is machine washable and offers SPF 20 sun protection. When I got this cap I wasn’t sure if I would like the “shorty tail” on the back of it. However, I’ve come to like it on extremely hot days because it keeps the sun off my neck. This particular skull-cap has the Tour de France logo on it. Headsweats makes dozens of other styles of cycling skull caps, so if you don’t like the design of this one I am you can find one that will work for you.

The Headsweats Tour de France Performance Shorty Cycling Skull Cap retails for $21 and is available in three colors (Yellow, White or Black). I bought two of the caps from Amazon.com for under $18 each, and with Amazon.com you get free shipping on orders over $25.

      Daniel — I sincerely appreciate the “award” and your kind comments! This is very similar to the “Kreativ Blogger Award” I wrote about this past April (http://wp.me/p1sFbY-TC) so I will just let those comments stand. I liked the article you wrote a few months ago about the lawn mower — but a herd of goats in your yard would have been cool too!

    These are odd but brilliant. I may have seen them or something like them in May. Our city hosts (for the last time — moves to Tenn. next year) the USA Pro Cycling Championship in Greenville.

      Headsweats make several different style of cap and so I am fairly certain you’ve seen at least a few of them before. You are so lucky to be in the same town as the USA Pro Cycling Championship!

      Tony — thanks for the link. On those days when the temp hit 100 I was still out riding (like a fool), but it sure slowed me down a lot!

    Reblogged this on Alt Route Clothing and commented:
    Considering getting one of these… I’m a monster sweater in summer and whatever i can do to make it more comfortable, and not have to disturb my sight by wiping seat from under my glasses, the better!
