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.

Perfect fit for my big head!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
- Fit: True to size
It's been tough finding a sweat wicking liner for my head. I have now used the Castelli bandana on three rides and I love a few things about it. 1) It fits...finally, something that actually fits! 2)the tie sits perfectly just below my helmet adjustment! 3) It stays put and is thin enough to allow for helmet adjustment without slipping on my head. 4) It fits all head sizes because of the adjustable bandana ties. I will be purchasing a few more!
[bandana] Prosecco Strada really does NOT tell consumers what this material is. Can someone please enlighten me as to what type of material this Castelli Bandana is made out of?
Does it have a SPF rating?
Does it have a SPF rating?
Hi there, it does not appear that this bandanna has a SPF rating from Castelli. If you are looking for something that does, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I can help you find something to fit your needs.

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.
