Why use a neoprene balaclava?
Early season triathlons are usually practised in fresh water (18°C and below), which can make the swim leg very unpleasant. The neoprene hood can be used to swim comfortably in cool water when worn with your neoprene wetsuit.
Balaclava or cap?
The balaclava chin strap will guarantee secure fit in use, which may prove useful during mass starts.
You can easily put the organisation cap over your balaclava.
The neoprene balaclava is reversible, one black side for sobriety, one orange side to reassure you during open water trainings.
