One of the things that compels us most about the bicycle is its beautiful simplicity as a machine. It's getting more and more difficult to appreciate that simplicity in the high-end race market, but occasionally bits of kit come along that provide a straightforward solution to an uncomplicated problem. Louis Garneau's Hugo Headband is a perfect example of this.
It's one piece of HeatMaxx fabric that, as you might have guessed, keeps you warm. Even the design is simple, with a tastefully applied logo on the brow. The Hugo is kind to your skin, too. There's one seam at the back, but no seams on the top or bottom, so you won't have any decorative indentations on your forehead for hours after your ride, and it provides UPF 50 protection.
The Louis Garneau Hugo Headband is available in one size in the color Black.

Louis Garneau Hugo Headband
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
- Fit: True to size
Great fit and appearance.
Just the right temperature!
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Keeps my head at just the right temperature. Most head warmers cover the entire head which inhibits your head from breathing. This one allows the excess heat to vent out of the top while still keeping my head and ears warm.
