Every triathlete knows it. In the opening rush of any open water swim there are arms and legs everywhere. The risk of being kicked in the head or colliding with other swimmers is exponentially higher than in any other competitive swim situation.
We invented the world’s only protective swim cap® – and we discovered it does so much more! Hammer Head® is the only cap engineered for improved head safety in the water. In addition, you can wear your Hammer Head in practice and/or under your race cap in competition and benefit from the Hammer Head’s hydrodynamic surface.
The paper thin swim cap has been a requirement in triathlon races to segregate racing groups and as a way to be seen by others while in open water competition.
USA Olympic Team - Triathlete Ambassador, Kris Swarthout, says the Hammer Head has changed his view of just what a swim cap can be. The HIT Honeycomb Impact Technology® inside the cap was just the start for him. He now swims every stroke with his Hammer Head cap. He goes on to explain that the wrinkle-free TEKFIT® design provides him with a smooth, streamline surface so when he is pushing those hard sets, nothing slows him down. The cap sits on his head perfectly and never moves, he can not say the same for other swim caps which have come off mid-race or mid-set. He also added that his new favorite feature is the warmth retention the cap offers. Neoprene caps have never been a comfortable option for him in cold water swimming. They are clunky and never fit right. Kris is a fan of the Hammer Head. You should check it out too!
