Frequently Asked Questions
What makes the Hammer Head Swim Cap different?
Hammer Head is the world’s first protective swim cap. It is the only major safety innovation in cap design in a century. Caps include patent pending HIT Honeycomb Impact Technology™ protection: a layer of honeycomb chambers located on the inside top of the cap that cushions the swimmer’s head to absorb and dissipate the shock of impacts with pool walls and other swimmers. Hammer Head Caps also feature TEKFIT™ design, a revolutionary seam-free compression fit for total comfort that eliminates top of cap wrinkles that can cause drag in the pool. The cap also is a little longer on the sides, covering the swimmer’s ears to reduce the chance of swimmer’s ear infection from the constant in and out flow of water.
