    Sweatband for big boys

    I sweat like a pig, even in the winter, and tend to totally saturate a headsweats band in short order. Anybody know of a sweatband that will absorb lots and lots of sweat before it starts dripping in your eyes?

    I tried one of those sweat gutter things once and didn't have much luck with it.

    Thanks!

    Sweatband for big boys

    I use a Halo sweat band. Thin enough for your helmet but also directs sweat away from your eyes. It has a rubber strip on the inside that kinda seals your forehead . It works but the strip can feel awkward . Nice imprint when you remove your helmet

    I have the same issue. I usually ride with two sweat bands, one on my head and a spare on my arm that I use after about an hour. I haven't tried the Halo yet........

    I also use a Halo band and it works pretty good. Somedays I have to wring it out after 25 miles or so on the road, but usually it's good to go all ride long.

    Halo here as well. I usually wring it out when I'm really pouring, but it's never dripped in my eyes on a ride.

    Head sweat is bad when you are bald. I use headsweat and so far works well. Need to check into halo now

    I have tried the Halo. That one lasts me about 30 minutes before it is soaked.

    Halo works good for me, but if it is hot, I have to stop and wring out every 15-20 mins. That's much better than constant pouring into sunglasses.
