Not the full head cover ones

Ok, makes sense now. Interestingly after a quick search on ebay it seams the bandanna is available cheaper than the headband.

Haven't pulled the trigger yet, wait until me current Cell order comes in. So...

Pros and cons VS the straight headband please? Any users are welcome to chime in.

Thanks

Well, after seeing this, I have ordered 2. I sweat a heap up here in Townsville, even at 5 in the morning. I recently tried a castelli summer headband and it works, for about 40 minutes. I ride for 2-3 hours so I hope these halo’s will be an improvement.

Any of you Halo proponents have a boofhead like mine?
Like my frames.. I need about a 60cm in a hat size. :(

I avoid the traditional cycling caps because they just look like a wet beer coaster on my skon.

I'm a large 56cm+ and the sweatband one fits easy with plenty of stretch left in it. Pretty sure it'd stretch to 60cm okay.

I got a Halo Super Wide and a Halo II first time around. I found that the wider one kept the sweat out better, so ordered two of the Super Wide this time.

I didn't try the Halo bandana as even the relatively thin torpedo7 bandana I had previously I felt a tad warm up top at times.

Cheers,
Simon.

I use the headband that you can tie off at the back and have a size 59 head, yep head on me like a cabbage!

I love the Halo and have two, not having eyebrows (yep seriously virtually no eyebrows) the Halo's are a god send. Keeps the sweat out of the eyes and better still off the inside of your glasses

I take a 63 in proper hats and the stretchy halo fits ok. I thought it was a bit tight when I first got it but after wearing it a few times it feels ok.

On saying that the next one I buy will probably be the Velcro one just to compare it.

I'm seriously yearning for a Garmin 510 now! I'll have to do some serious saving before that becomes a reality :(

Too bad you can't simply offer a special for BNA members. I'd like one but I may not be able to get to my computer on the 26th in time.

$149 versus $339 at Highly Tuned Athletes. That is some discount. Makes me wonder what the catch is.

True, so be sure to read the fine print carefully! I think there'll be very limited stocks, designed to draw people to the site and buy other stuff.

Limited stock
Site will get a lot of hits and may crash
1st come 1st served
A new deal every 30 mins until they have run their cycle of 24 items. Site crashing tho may see it extended
