Many swimmers, professional and recreational, choose Lycra swim caps for use in the water. As opposed to latex rubber 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.
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.
Our Lycra swim caps are available for those who prefer the feel of a material cap and work well for those who have allergies to latex. Great for individual use, to sell in your pro-shop, or to have on the pool deck for those swimmers who have forgotten to bring their own cap.
Another great thing about these caps is that they are one size fits all, so you dont have to be burdened with the task of trying to find a cap that is going to fit you to a T. Additionally, it comes in a zipper pouch meaning that the package is completely reusable.
