Designed for cyclists, but can be worn for any activity, this headband packs smart and effective technology and terrific materials into a small package. The tested and high performing Barrier material keeps the wind and cold from your forehead, and the P.R.O. Thermal insulating material provides efficient warmth for weight and effective moisture transfer. This version of the P.R.O. Thermal employs a blend of Minerale fabric to absorb and neutralize odor.
