Revolutionary swimming caps help you to take your performance further
When preparing for and taking part in a triathlon, there are many advantages to choosing the appropriate swimming cap for the swim leg, that features characteristics that are specially designed to boost your comfort, safety and performance at every level of competition or training. The rush of the water and the volume of people surrounding you can be an overwhelming experience, but the right swimming cap will ensure that your head has the best protection against the elements, with benefits that include:
Reduction in water resistance by minimising drag in the water, making you more streamlined
Protection of the hair from wear and tear and exposure to chemically treated water such as chlorine in indoor swimming pools
It is scientifically proven that we lose a large percentage of our body heat from our head, so having the right swimming cap is paramount when out in the open water and cold conditions
Prevention of your hair getting in the way while swimming and reduction of drag caused by long hair
Swimming caps are made from a variety of materials that include silicone, neoprene and latex, among others. Depending on the conditions in which you are swimming, they can offer different benefits. For example, silicone is extremely durable and popular with swimmers for its long-lasting qualities as well as the fact that it doesn’t pull your hair when it is pulled on and off, while neoprene is ideal for cold open water conditions thanks to its insulating properties. Latex is less durable than Spandex, but preferred for its lightweight qualities that make it suitable for warmer climates.
