Description

Cool it.

When helmet padding just won't cut it to keep the sweat out of your eyes on mid-summer rides, don the Castelli Summer Skullcap to keep cool and dry. Made to sit unobtrusively under your helmet, this cap is constructed of a wicking layer around the headband to sop up sweat and keep your eyes sting-free. Across the top, a mesh layer provides oodles of ventilation and protects your dome from harmful sun rays for cool, worry-free miles.

  • Hot-weather skullcap that keeps sweaty discomfort at bay
  • Wicking mesh material breathes well and pulls sweat from skin
  • Form-fitting construction fits neatly under your helmet

    Its too small

    Familiarity:
    I returned this product before using it
    Fit:
    Runs small

    I don't know who can wear this. I have a M size helmet, and no hair. And it barely fit. It would not be comfortable for any period of time.

    Always love Castelli product. This skull cap is super thin/lightweight and is amazing at wicking away sweat. I have tried Assos, Pearl Izumi, Lululemon and others but this (for me) has been the best. Fits snug but is very stretchy so no problems staying put on my medium sized noggin. Others complained that it was too small which is strange to me seeing how stretchy it is- if you have a lot of hair I could see it being a problem. Keeps the sun off my head, sweat out of my eyes, and does a great job at cooling me off. Flat lock seams and thin material make it so I don't feel it under my helmet. Being so thin, and not apparently absorbent- I am not sure how it does such a great job of wicking away the sweat but it does better than any other skull cap I've used. Great product.

    I like this skull cap for being lightweight and it does a good job with perspiration. I don't like the fit since it fits small and gives me a headache often.

    It is a one size unisex. It fit over my head but after a while it would just shrink back to its original size, and in shrinking, it would slip off my head. In short, it would not stay put. It seems to have worked for others but it did not for me and my quite bald head. Thank you

    Have a hard time making it stay put

    I was hoping this will stop sweat from reaching my eyes. It has helped, but not as expected.

    effectively mops up sweat , but more importantly blocks my head from the UV rays.

    This is a very lightweight skull cap that looks good and fits well. I started to wear this under my helmet to avoid the turtle shell pattern that develops on my bald head on sunny days. One added benefit: no more sweat dripping down the inside of my sunglasses.

    Favorite for Warm Rides

    The Castelli Summer Skullcap does exactly what it should under a helmet for riders (like me) with short or thin hair. It keeps sweat out of they eyes and off the glasses lenses, and keeps the sun off the scalp. The cap is nice and thin and all the stitching is flat-lock, so there is never any extra pressure or discomfort. It cools really well, to the point that it can feel chilly in temperatures under 65 or 70 degrees Fahrenheit. I have a couple of these!

    I have a big head, and this thing fit just fine. It is nice to have one that is black because it doesn't show like a white one does through my helmet vents. I suppose in the summer it might retain heat from the sun, so I'll go back to my white ones exclusively for those months. I've owned previous versions of this brand and they've lasted through countless washings. Solid value and performance.

    Good skull cap for summer. Very light weight. It does a decent job of keeping sweat out of your eyes when cycling.

    I have worn headsweats for years. This is a lot better material and quality. It does fit a little snug, I have a medium size head. I wear this to shelter head and thinning hair from the sun.

    Love - Hate

    Fit:
    Runs small

    I love most ALL Castelli cycling wear, and own tons of it, from Alpha, Sorpasso tights down to several short sleeve jerseys and bib shorts, gloves, even toe thingys. But this Summer Skull Cap has way too much Lycra in it. It took both hands (wishing I had a third) just to stretch it out over my head. Once on it just wanted to pop off. Might work if you have a small head, mine's large (58 cm circumference) so this went back. Going to buy another Headsweats Eventure Skullcap in white to complement the one in red I already own.

    The correct word is "complement" not "compliment."
