My partner and I have been competitive athletes our entire lives. We have participated in numerous sports and activities
including cross country mountain bike racing, adventure racing, Xterra events, 24 Hours of Adrenalin races, lacrosse, tennis,
racquetball, and even running across the Grand Canyon and back.
During all these years of training and competing in the hot Southern California sun, we experienced one common problem…
stinging, burning eyes from salty sweat constantly dripping in them. After asking other competitors if they had the same
problem, most of them responded, “Yes”. They all seem to have a story whether it was a crash, near miss, or just annoyed
due to the sweat in their eyes and on their glasses.
We tried every headband out there, only to find they only worked temporarily. Once an ordinary headband became
saturated, it would drip sweat into our eyes impairing our vision. That is no fun when you’re racing a mountain bike at
25 mph on rough terrain.
That’s when we decided to develop our own headband, one that actually worked. We wanted to make the best performing
headband in the world.
