Swimming caps for competition & leisure
There are many good reasons for wearing a swimming cap. Top athletes never swim without one because the headgear gives them that decisive tenth-of-a-second advantage. Thanks to their smooth surface, swimming caps create less resistance in the water. By comparison, uncovered hair can cost valuable time. Swimming caps are also the sensible choice when on holiday or swimming recreationally. Not only do they protect the hair from salt and chlorine, they also prevent water from getting into the ears. The danger of ear infections is thereby reduced.
Swimming caps: different materials
Swimming caps are made from various materials. Top athletes like to use silicone swimming caps. They are particularly resilient, long lasting and kind to the skin. Caps made from latex are cheaper. Brands such as Speedo have also designed swimming caps made from new, hi-tech materials that are lighter and more breathable compared to silicone. The minimum order quantity for individually printed swimming caps is 25.
