Of course, tennis players suffer from dripping sweat.
A survey on the Tennis Warehouse website indicates that the most popular solution among tennis players is the headband at 41%, and if you throw in the bandanna people at 19%, that comes to 60%!
There is some desperate creativity as well, visors on backwards, and hats PLUS headbands. Whatever works : -)
Our stuff works, better than anything else, guaranteed, uniquely combining ultra absorbent and highly wicking fabrics.

Whatabout SweatHawg X2?

SweatHawg now offers double-absorbency versions of most of our sweat control products, helmet liners, skull caps, and headbands. And we have the hardhat sweat bands, which were double from the start. 

While the single layer helmet liner we first offered solo in 2011 was immediately the most effective sweat management product available, we have been gratefully accepting suggestions from product users ever since. 

Early on, a pro reviewer from Bike Rumor tested our helmet liners in both dry and humid climates. 

Though he loved the drip-free performance in SoCal, back home in humid Illinois, an hour into his ride the dripping began. Based on this feedback, we doubled the absorbent layer and created the X2 helmet liner. Problem solved... no sweat :-) Read review here.

This year we added X2 versions of the headband and the skull cap. We'll keep the sweat out of your eyes and glasses, no matter where you ride...or run or skate or climb or walk or work.

The Easy Way to Make Your Own Sports Drink

No praise for pricey powders...water, sugar, and a bit of salt blind-tested better...

Pop quiz: You’re kitting up and getting ready to hit the road with your crew for a Saturday morning ride. You open the pantry and crack open the tub of sports drink mix to discover—d'oh!—a mere dusting of mix remains. Do you: A) Get to the shop in time to buy a few portable drink mix sleeves or tabs? B) Ask the bunch to swing by 7-11 on the way out of town so you can grab a bottle of something blue and sugary for the ride? C) Say screw it, and hit the road on water alone?

How about D) None of the above. Here’s an über-easy option few of us consider that is now scientifically proven to work just as well as, if not better than, your standard sports drink: Put some sugar in your water.

Why riding makes you happy

...even happier with dry eyes and glasses.

It’s the feeling that pulls you out of bed to saddle up before the anyone else is awake. It’s what beckons you to strap on your shoes and go for a ride when the day is done. It’s that happy, relaxed state of mind we seek when we roll out of our neighborhoods and tick off miles any chance we get.

You might live to ride your bike, but studies show  you might ride your bike because your want to live.

SweatHawg vs Bell Zephyr Bike Helmet

Bell Zephyr bike helmet wicks sweat out in front of your glasses, only $230. Sweat ends up on the outside of glasses, not the inside, and only if the wind is blowing...or you're riding creates air movement.

Hmmm...or how about a SweatHawg Helmet Liner for $22 bucks?
