Headsweats Perspiration Technology Headwear®


The most popular visor in the triathlon industry and trusted companion of thousands of Ironman® finishers. Boasts classic styling with Eventure™ elastic band for fast moisture transfer and a comfortable fit along with a quick drying COOLMAX® Fabric shell. A COOLMAX® Fabric terry headband keeps the perspiration out of your eyes and this visor provides ultra-light comfort, weighing in at less than 1.3 oz. My only complaint? The elastic is so strong, that, on my melonhead, it eventually felt too tight on longer runs. I’m sure if I cut my hair, this problem would go away.


Headsweats Dry Visibility fabric keeps you dry and comfortable during your workout, while a reflective stripe across bill and crown adds a measure of visibility. A hook and loop closure and ponytail friendly rear opening makes this a go-to hat for all. The fact that it’s machine washable is a real bonus. Incredibly comfortable, light on the head, and kept sweat out of my eyes, an awesome hat.


One of the hats I was most excited to try was the Cadence Cycling Cap – not many hats are geared towards cyclists, and this is based on the classic cycling cap you see in the old photos. Made of Coolmax knit fabric with Eventure elastic back makes this comfortable for cycling. Worn under the helmet, the cap keeps the sweat out of your eyes and off your face. On cooler days, it also keeps your head warm. (Our 2 year old LOVES this hat and grabs it at every opportunity!)


When I shared a video about the TIMEX Multisport Team, they sent me a TIMEX headsweats Race Cap - it's definitely one of my favorites due to the cool colors and design. The Coolmax ® Fabric shell and COOLMAX® Fabric terry headband create maximum air flow and moisture transfer. INVISTA® certified sun protection offers protection, feels light on the head at less than 2 oz. Features an adjustable rear buckle with ponytail portal, with Women’s sizing and colors available making it a good option for the ladies. Incredible how similar looking this is to the dry visibility hat, yet the performance was markedly different.
