Don't be afraid to sweat.
The Summer Skullcap has you covered in blistering conditions thanks to a polyester and mesh construction which wicks moisture and promotes airflow beneath your helmet. A stretchy, trim-free headband keeps perspiration off your brow with a soft touch.
The Summer Skullcap is available in multiple colors.

Too small for my not-huge head. Despite stretching it over my head, it does not cover more than the tips of my ears. Sun protection is one of the main reasons I wear a skullcap. Returned and ordered a DeSoto, will see how that works.
I'm bald so always wear a head covering to prevent sunburn and for comfort. Headsweats skull caps have alway been great but I bought this on sale to try. I have been very disappointed as it's too tight (one size fits all), too small (doesn't cover enough of my head), and doesn't have a good surface for absorbing sweat on the forehead or keeping my helmet in place. I rarely use it.
I use them every ride starting when temps hit 50 degrees, I live in Wisconsin and early season rides start out in the 30's, keeps my hair from ripping out, comfortable one size fits all, no sweat running into my sunglasses, protects bald spot on my head from direct sun. The only thing I don't like is I don't have a couple more of them.
Faithfully wear this little gem on all my summer rides. Keeps the head cool, good protection from sun beating through the helmet slips on my buzzed head, and also protected me from a few in-flight creatures that made it through my helmet vents. Great purchase!
Have had problems with other one-size fits most skullcaps being way too large for me but this fits in well under a Giro size small helmet. High quality construction. Breathes well in 90 degree heat. Washes well and does not stain.
As a somewhat older rider with less natural padding on the top than many, I always use a skullcap for comfort, sun protection, and to reduce the sweat pouring into my eyes. This skullcap has perfect coverage for me, and even on the hottest days it does a great job of reducing the amount of sweat pouring down from on high.
Totally keeps sweat from running into my eyes. Pick up two new ones just before a Marin Headlands trip, temps in the 90ï¿½s riding around Mt. Tam. Never felt over heated but got the benefit of no sweat running into eyes
I've worn the Castelli skull cap on several high humidity/hot days and it has done a good job of keeping my eyes and sunglasses clear. I think it works best if you place the front of the skull cap above the helmet headband.
My favorite band is Rush. One of their old songs I identify with more and more is I Think I'm Going Bald. If I don't ride with a cap, I get crazy vent tan lines or burns on my skull. This cap does the trick. It's light and comfortable and keeps the sweat out of my eyes. I've had one for a couple of years with no noticeable wear. Highly recommended
I wear this scullcap under my helmet. It is thin, it doesn't bulk up and make the helmet fit tight. Although it is designed for warm weather, I find it helps cut a bit of chill on cool days too. It does not go over the ears. For me, it's a good piece to wear from high 50's through low 70's. Since it does retain a small amount of heat, I tend not to wear the cap when it's really hot, although, it is a trade off from a sun burned scalp (as I'm bald).
Looking for a product to upgrade from headband, which were not doing a good enough job absorbing and wicking sweat during summer rides. Tried a few summer weight skullcaps and found that the Castelli skullcap works the best. Does a great job absorbing and wicking sweat and keeping cool, no longer does sweat build up and run into my eyes as with a headband. Fits well under helmet, like that it covers my bald head from the sun. Tried Giro and PI skullcaps as well, liked Castelli the best.
