lycra swim caps

The purpose of Lycra swim caps is to keep hair out of your face and goggle straps


Many swimmers, professional and recreational, choose Lycra swim caps for use in the water. As opposed to latex or silicone swim caps, Lycra caps are made of a more porous fabric that does not keep your hair from getting wet. The purpose, then, of Lycra swim caps is to keep hair out of your face and goggle straps and to give you a hydrodynamic position in the water. As a rule, Lycra swim caps are about twice the price of latex swim caps, but they can last much longer. Whereas you can poke a hole in a latex cap fairly easily, Lycra is a stretchable material that will withstand much more abuse. At Swim2000, Inc., we sell Lycra swim caps with chinstraps, for added support.

How to wear lycra swim caps


Lycra swim caps can be worn alone over the hair or over a latex or silicone cap. Many swimmers use this combination approach to give their uniform a streamlined look. Lycra caps come in a variety of colors and styles, and match the look of Lycra swimsuits much better than other caps made of different materials.
