So I finally dug out the only cycling cap I have to see how I’d fate in a workout. With the recent summer weather in New England, my basement has gone from the low 60’s to 70’s. I’m on endurance week so it’s maybe not the best test, but I’ve noticed that I have a lot less sweat on my brow and that the cap is taking the moisture that probably would have made way to my face and required more constant wiping with my towel. In fact, in my 90min ride today I didn’t use my towel at all.
True test will be when I start SSB2 HV next week, but I’m encouraged by the additional bit of clothing, especially since it’s easy to assume that it would trap heat that way. I guess next is to buy a base layer and try that lol
