How to Put On a Swim Cap

Swim caps are a great way to protect your hair from harsh pool chemicals. But sometimes they can be a challenge to put on! Use this handy guide to help you get that swim cap on the next time you get in the pool!

Step One - How to Put On a Swim Cap

1) Place your hands inside the cap and lace your fingers together, making a cup shape. Make sure that if your cap has a seam, it faces forward and backward.

Step Two - How to Put On a Swim Cap

2) Keeping your hands in a similar position, pull them apart and stretch the cap, creating a pocket for your head.

Step Three - How to Put On a Swim Cap

3) Pull the cap over your head.

Step Four - How to Put On a Swim Cap

4) Work the edges of the cap around your head, being careful to tuck in any stray hairs. If you have long hair, it might be easier to start with your hair in a loose bun at the back of your head to prevent hair escaping.

Step Five - How to Put On a Swim Cap

5) Make sure the cap goes over your ears, If you wear earplugs, you should insert them before you put on your cap.

Pick the perfect Swim Cap

Latex caps are cheaper, but silicone swim caps are thicker, last longer, and are easier on your hair.

– What about lycra caps? The material is porous, so the moment your head goes under water, your hair is wet. But if you don’t mind it getting wet, or if you don’t plan on putting your head in water, lycra caps are the most comfortable caps available!

– Will a cap keep your head and hair completely dry when swimming? No, no cap can prevent your hair from becoming wet. Caps are designed to minimize the damage chlorine does to your hair, as well as keep hair out of your face. To further protect your hair from chlorine, wet your hair in fresh water before swimming.

– No one likes a ripped cap! To prevent rips, never put your fingernails in contact with the cap. Make sure your fingernails are well trimmed to further prevent rips.

Speedo Goggles Fit

Speedo Goggles Fit

How do you choose the right pair of swim goggles for you? That’s a tough question. Every person’s face is different, so goggles that are perfect on one person may not work on the next. But thanks to Speedo, a top manufacturer of quality competitive and recreational swim goggles, we can bring you this fit guide!

Inner Eye Fit

Inner Eye

Best for competitive swimmers, these goggles are low profile and fit securely in the eye socket.
Our Pick: Speedo Vanquisher 2.0 Mirrored Goggles

Middle Eye Fit

Middle Eye

A middle eye fit goggle will rest within the eye orbital. This is a more comfortable fit than inner eye, but still offers some options for streamlined, drag efficient styles.
Our Pick: Speedo Bullet Goggles

Outer Eye Fit

Outer Eye

Recreational swimmers, this is your choice! Offering the most universal fit, outer eye goggles are comfortable while still being secure and reliable.
Our Pick: Speedo Hydrospex Goggles

Mask Fit

Mask

If goggles of every type aren’t comfortable for you or you want an expanded field of vision, consider a swim mask. These are by far the easiest on your eyes and will work well for nearly anyone.
Our Pick: Speedo Caliber Mirrored Swim Mask

Here are some more guidelines for ensuring your goggles fit well:

  • Without using the strap, push the goggles onto your eyes. If you get a good suction, it’s likely that those goggles are a good fit for you. If they do not stick to your face, they will probably leak in the pool.
  • Some goggles have an adjustable nose bridge. This is good for people who have noses that are larger or smaller than average, and those who have eyes that are close together or far apart. You will usually find adjustable nose bridges on goggles with inner or middle eye fit.

SwimSpray Chlorine Removal Spray

Chlorine and your health, With the SwimSpray Chlorine Removal Spray

Understanding the benefits and minimizing the hazards of chlorine.

Bottle of SwimSpray Chlorine Removal

Why do swimming pools use chlorine?

  • Chlorine is great for keeping pool water, your body, and other swimmers clean.
  • It is a form of bleach that gives pool operators the ability to keep participants safe by adhering to Health Department water quality standards.

The hazards of chlorine and the benefits of using SwimSpray after swimming.

Chlorine bonds to your body and, unless properly neutralized, is often associated with damaging and bleaching hair and also drying and irritating skin.

  • SwimSpray is the first product that removes the chlorine from your hair and skin in a safe, gentle, and all-natural way.
  • SwimSpray leaves your hair soft and moisturized and maintains hair color.
  • SwimSpray keeps your skin from drying out and becoming itchy or irritated.
  • SwimSpray is 100% natural, fragrance-free, sulfate-free, and free from artificial colors.
  • SwimSpray is experimentally verified to be 400x more effective than traditional anti-chlorine shampoos and soaps.

Whether you are charging a mountain trail, racing in a triathlon or simply strolling the beach, Speedo footwear delivers superior drainage, traction and comfort.

VIBRAM

Vibram is the undisputed leader in high-performance rubber soles. We looked to this trusted partner for a sole with more grip, comfort and durability. They delivered with the TC1, a high-performance rubber compound that reduces slipping on the smoothest, wettest surfaces.

S-TRAC

S-TRAC rubber outsoles offer water management and dispersion characteristics providing maximum traction. S-TRAC technology streamlines water away from the outsole and enhances direct surface contact to improve traction and slip resistance.

Nemesis Fins

Have you seen the newest fins from Speedo USA? Learn about the most innovative fins on the market!

Nemesis Fins

by Speedo USA.

COMFORT TRAINING

The Nemesis fins will become your greatest ally in the pool. The most comfortable fin on the market, with ergonomic foot pocket features and floating properties, which elevate the hips and feet into an improved streamline body position. Utilizing bio-mimicry, the Humpback Whale pectoral fin was part inspiration behind this unique deign.

nemesis fins picture

1. TUBERCLES

Scalloped outer edge, like the Humpback Whale’s fin, creates greater surface area for water to pass over versus a smooth, straight edge. This technology creates enhanced propulsion, allowing the swimmer to push more water during kicking drills and training sets.

2. BLOW VALVES

Medial edge opening are larger on the bottom-side and smaller on the top-side. This creates a valve effect, in which water is captured on the underside and forced trough the smaller opening. Thus, more resistance is created on the down-kick.

3. FLOW CHANNELS

Channels on the top and bottom of the fins help guide water in the proper direction and toward the Blow Valves. The Flow Channels also help medially rotate the foot into the the correct orientation for maximum kick efficiency.

4. INJECTION MOLDED EVA (IMEVA) FOAM

IMEVA fins are naturally buoyant, aiding the swimmer with an elevated body position, keeping hips and feet in a more streamline position.

5. UNPARALLED COMFORT

Interior foot pocket was engineered by footwear experts, taking all unique footwear last features into consideration: arch support, more toe space to prevent pinching and cramping, graduated instep for excellent fitting across the mid-foot.

6. HEEL STRAP

Latticed back heel strap for maximum and comfort around the heel bone and Achilles Tendon area. Unique under-heel strap gives extra stability and security at the heel joint.

7. INTEGRATED GRAB HOLE

Incorporated finger hole on top of fin for ease of getting the fin on the foot
