SKIN COOLER HELMET BEANIE*
Breathable, moisture transporting, and protects the head and forehead from the sun. Perfect to wear under cycling, skate, ski, motorcycle, and sports helmets.
Features and Benefits:
- Skin Cooler 90™ fabric stretches with you, is soft next-to-skin and breathable. It blocks 90% UVB rays and provides a cooling sensation when wet.
- Moisture wicking and protects the head and forehead from the sun
- Great under cycling, skate, ski, motorcycle, and other sports helmets.
- Whether you buy it in white or in black, if worn under a helmet, there is no difference in how much it will keep you cool, but you will enjoy how it keeps sweat out of your eyes, and protects you from the sun through any vents in your helmet, especially if you have short hair, very little hair, or no hair.
What makes ours different? Our Skin Cooler fiber is designed to feel and perform like silk (from a silkworm). Through Biomimicry, we took the virtues of this natural fiber and created a synthetic silk. It will keep you cool in hot weather and cooler when it is wet. Put it on and you will instantly feel the cool sensation. Wet it and you will notice a drop in the surface temperature of the skin between 7 and 10 degrees.
A MEDICAL TESTIM0NIAL: We received this letter from Dermatologist and Mohs Surgeon Dr. Michael Bax.*
I am an avid runner and triathlete and I recently discovered your Skin Cooler products, of which I'm a huge fan. I have been wearing them for a few months now and couldn't be happier. I am a dermatologist and Mohs surgeon at Roswell Park Cancer Institute in Buffalo, NY. Every patient I see is plagued by basal cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, or melanoma. I recommend your products to my active patients on a daily basis. It allows them to continue their active lifestyle while protecting themselves from the sun. I find your product to be far superior to all other cooling and sun protective lines. I truly appreciate your efforts and innovations.

Note: No garment should ever be a substitute so we always recommend you wear sunscreen underneath these, and all, products. It is crucial to keep in mind that a sunscreen's (whichever brand you may choose) SPF/UPF rating refers only to its ability to protect skin from UVB radiation. Because we know that UVA damage can be just as insidious, it is essential for the health of your skin that you use a sunscreen that contains the UVA-protecting ingredients of titanium dioxide or zinc oxide.

I love the skin cooler beanie. It is an essential accessory for any longer rides. I have shaved head, and no where for sweat to go. The beanie serves as layer to both cool and get moisture off my head. I forget its there even on the hottest days. When I misplaced the DeSoto one I impulsively bought a Pearl Izumi skull cap. The DeSoto one wins hands down for keeping me cool.
Hard to find something this nice that fits my head.
I have several of these. I wear under helmet on pretty much every ride. Seem to wick sweat in the summer and regulate head temp in cooler months. Fit is good, just above my ears.
I love it it’s just right for summer riding
I have worn this beanie for 70.3 and 140.6 triathlons, as well as 100+ mile long rides. It does a great job of keeping me cool, protecting me from the sun, and, in turn, helping to protect my helmet.
