When the conditions turn nasty, wearing a hat under your helmet isn't just a good idea—it's a necessity. But honestly, almost every hat that's designed for more than just soaking up summer sweat is simply too bulky to wear in tandem with a helmet. Well, lucky for you, Specialized's Element Hat checks every box on your protection and comfort wish list.
To start, it's made from one of the most venerable materials in the business—Gore WINDSTOPPER Soft Shell. This material is wind- and water-resistant, as well as being highly efficient at wicking moisture away from the skin while remaining extremely breathable.
In terms of fit, the hat was designed to be worn under a helmet, so there isn't any cumbersome bulk to compromise the fit or safety features of your helmet. And lastly, it has full-coverage over the ears to further protect against the elements.
