ORCA HEAD­BAND

£10 Aquatic head­band

220 Triathlon Magazine - - KIT ZONE -

Head­bands are use­ful for re­duc­ing the ‘ice cream head’ feel­ing when you sub­merge in cold water. This is be­cause of barore­cep­tors in blood ves­sels on the fore­head con­strict­ing – so it makes sense to cover them up. We’ve tried nar­rower one-size bands, but where this one ex­cels is that it’s wider than oth­ers, is curved in shape so keeps more of your ears warm and has a handy Vel­cro clo­sure at the back.
