Balaclava

Racing balaclavas (aka head sock) had a myth that they are like a ski mask and will make the driver hotter. A quality racing balaclava will keep the driver cooler by wicking moisture away from the surface of the driver's face. It also provides a layer of fire protection. Available in single and double eyeport, the single eyeport being the most popular by far. Some even have flat seam construction for added comfort. Look at the entire DiscoveryParts balaclava section to see the best balaclavas from Alpinestars, G-Force, OMP, Sparco and TraqGear.
