In the past, I’ve seen some black snapback hats with white salt marks, guys squeezing sweat from their helmets and have spent a lot of hours travelling in a car smelling of skaters. Although this liner might not be helpful for people who hardly break a sweat while skating, I think some of you might find it interesting.
About the NoSweat helmet liner
NoSweat is a replaceable liner for hats and helmets mostly used in mainstream team sports, but it can also be applied to skateboarding.
It consists of 5 thin and lightweight layers of fabric that breathe and absorb sweat, while simultaneously reduce odour. Furthermore, it also eliminates fog buildup, making it a good add-on to a full face helmet.
Application to any head gear is super easy. First you peel off the label covering the adhesive, then you place it inside your helmet or hat and finally firmly press it along the edges to make it stick.
Designed to not damage the interior of your headgear, it’s also easily replaceable. The brand offers two grades of adhesive, standard for helmets, and extra strength adhesive for streetwear hats.
Depending on how much you sweat while skating, NoSweat recommends replacing the liner after every use, but you can probably use it for maybe 2-3 sessions.
Currently they only ship to the US and Canada, but the brand wants to expand internationally. For more into, visit the NoSweat website.
In conclusion, I like the idea and the easy application. Making a helmet less stinky is always great and avoiding sweat burning your eyes is welcomed. But I didn’t really find any info regarding the price and how much sweat it actually absorbs. All in all, if it works, it ain’t stupid.
