The Aqua Sphere Speed+ Swim Cap is made from a unique blend of 82% Nylon/Polyamide and 18% Elasthane. Rather than being stiff and unyielding, like a traditional rubber swim cap, the Speed+ Swim Cap is soft to the touch and highly flexible. And thanks to its unique PU (polyurethane) coating, this Aqua Sphere cap is plenty warm and can stand up to any aquatic activity. It's an ideal cap for open water swimming and triathlons, but is also suitable for water aerobics and lap swimming, in addition to other water sports where you'd like to keep your hair securely out of the way.
The AquaGear Opinion
The Aqua Sphere cap's unique blend and lightweight feel made it a hit around the test pool. The chin strap, which is not adjustable (yet easily fit most head sizes) helped keep the cap firmly in place and didn't chafe the delicate facial area. Best of all, the bright yellow coloring made the ocean swimmers among us feel more noticed and less vulnerable in the open water.
The Bottom Line
With its soft, pliable material and added chin strap, the Aqua Sphere Speed+ Swim Cap makes for a care-free day on the water or a secure open water swimming adventure.
