Castelli Bandana $24.95
A dry head is a happy head.
When your helmet pads soak through, perspiration has nowhere to go but down your face and neck. The sweat eventually moves to your sunglasses and eyes, which becomes irritating and causes you to pull your attention away from your riding.
Avoid the salty streaks and burning eyes by wearing Castelli's lightweight bandana under your helmet. It's constructed with the same smooth Prosecco Strada multi-denier fabric that's used in a majority of Castelli's jerseys, making it the perfect addition to your everyday riding gear. This material has also been treated with Castelli's Prosecco. Essentially, this treatment disperses moisture widely over the surface of the bandana, accelerating evaporation. The material is lightweight (29 grams for the entire bandana), highly stretchable, and it breathes well. Together, these attributes lend themselves to keeping your head cool and without interfering with your helmet's fit. The bandana also adds a bit of protection from the sun's powerful rays while you pedal away for hours on end.
Sublimation printing provides long-lasting vibrant colors, and the adjustable back closure lets you dial in a custom fit.
The Castelli Bandana is available in one size and in the colors Black, Red, and White.
What community has to say
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I have owned a number of Castelli bandanas over the years, but this is the first one I have liked for more than its brand name and style. It fits really well even without tying as this model had a half spherical shape and stretch and it does a good job keeping sweat out of the eyes, bugs out of the hair, and sun off the dome of my head. I like it so much, I ordered one in each color.
