Accidents and head injuries are most commonly a result of cumulative bumps to the head occurring in all aquatic sports. The occasional and accidental head injury between two athletes, the diving platform or the pool wall may seem minor but they’re not. The most common athletic head injury is a concussion, which can range in severity, can linger and disrupt your whole world. Head injury symptoms may appear at once or can take weeks to develop. The 2021 data finds over 50% of pool injuries are to the head with roughly 10% of head hits being reported. These head injuries are serious and can be as damaging as one big head injury – leading to lifelong problems.

This is why we invented the revolutionary new Hammer Head® that raises the bar and takes swim caps to a whole new level. With its patented cushion inside the cap combined with a smooth exterior racing surface and seamless design make it 50% safer, up to 10.5% faster and 100% more durable than flimsy latex or silicone caps.
