    A Swim Cap for Beards

    A Swim Cap for Beards
    Gear  /  Sport
    Virgin Trains, a British railroad company, invent a device to protect the beards of swimmers.  The beard cap is a Lycra swim cap that includes a wrap for beards and mustaches. The innovative swim cap, made from Lycra, wraps under the chin and packs the wearer’s beard against their face to decrease drag whilst swimming. Reusable and adjustable, the unique prototype has been designed to keep bushy beards under control.
    "Virgin Trains, the official train partner to the Great North Swim, commissioned research after reading debates on swimming forums about beards causing drag. The findings revealed that 12 percent of men connect their beard to slower swim times and nearly a quarter feel their beards hinder their sports performance. Sporting men reported the reasons for this, with 11 percent saying their beard is irritating, 32 percent claiming it is a source of discomfort, and 42 percent saying they find it distracting.  "
