    How To Keep Sweat Out Of Your Eyes?

    O-K, dudes and dudettes, I'm not a "sports" person, so this is probably a non-issue for some of youse, but here's your chance to help out an uninitiatred noob!

    How do I keep the sweat out of my eyes?

    I'd imagine there's some kind of sweatband or something that one can wear under one's helmet?

    Please be very specific...provide pictures, links....flashcards, etc. I just started riding, and am trying not to let the oncoming heat dissuade me...... I don't care so much about being hot (even though I don't like the heat) but sweat running in my eyes...especially when I can't wipe my forehead because of the helmet.......will be very discouraging......

    This looks promising

    This SweatVac looks promising. I think I'll try it myself.

    Halo Headbands are nice. They come in a variety of styles, but I like this one.

    But I usually just wear a cycling cap

    Thanks, all! Some good stuff to look into, already! (Especially the "ride faster" -which will definitely be an option when I get a little more proficient at taking these hills!;-) )

    The GUTR looks promising.....

    +1 for the Halo II pull-over headbands. Nothing to tie and lets my head breathe in the summer.

    I know they work because I started commuting and don't bother with the headband. I get sweat in my eyes in 30 minutes of riding without a headband. Of course, this isn't unique to the Halo II but I like it.

    Welllll, guys, I order a SweatGUTR and a Halo tie band last night (best prices were, surprisingly, on Ebay for these items)- I'll see how they do...and if need be, I'll try the SweatVac next.

    (I came this >.< close to ordering it, too, last night!)

    I have a couple of Halo II headbands and really like them. I will caution you I have a black helmet and the first headband I bought was in white and it discolored very quickly because of the sweat and the black hemet. I have not had this problem with the blue one

    Good to know. I just purchased one thanks to this thread. Almost done loading up on accessories.

    Well, my Halo and SweatGUTR arrived a while back..... Started using the Halo...and I love it! (So much so, that I haven't tried the GUTR yet...but I will...)
