Are you tired of having your favorite cycling cap looking all grungy with sweat stains?
Presenting, Head Sweats.
No not these guys:
Athletic headgear made from moisture wicking material to whisk away the sweat and keep you cool on your ride.
The company was nice enough to send me a couple of samples just in time for everyones favorite little bike race.
The have an impressive collection of headbands, ball caps, do-rags and cycling style caps. They even make custom work for your team or club.
Here’s a little back story about the company:
Headsweats Perspiration Technology Headwear® was founded in the winter of 1998 by shoe industry veteran and obsessed cyclist, Alan Romick. Frustrated by the perils of heavy sweat blindness, migrating sunscreen, and odd sunburn pattern on his head through his helmet, he set out to develop headgear that worked. Encouraged by the constant feedback within the local cycling community, he took the best attributes of what was available and improved on them. Starting with one product — The Cotton Classic — available at first in just four colors, Alan’s products quietly became elite athlete’s secret weapon around the world, eventually expanding to over 17 different products available in over 140 different colors and styles.
After appearing on a Tour de France rider on the front of the the New York Times sports section, that secret weapon became an open secret and soon Headsweats were running in and winning Ironman Kona, The Head of the Charles Regatta, countless marathons and bike races around the world. With well over a million hats delivered, Headsweats now has more triathlon finishers and podiums than any other headwear company.
I’ve really been enjoying my “spin city” model and barely even notice I’m wearing a cap. It’s a very light material and breathable. I also like the short brim and compact style.
I got an extra black TDF hat and want to give it away to the first twitter (@bikeblognyc) response to tell me who won the 1970 Tour de France, my birth year.
The winner must be a follower of my feed and @headsweatsco.
