Tested over many weeks during training and racing (Embrunman), this Compressport Spiderweb Ultralight visor easily deserves the First Award. Depending on its design there are different choices for trail runners and triathletes.
We hunted high and low for critical details – and found none. This product gives 100% satisfaction. This visor has two unbeatable advantages: it is lightweight and comfortable. These two criteria are linked, the 25g means that the Spiderweb is completely forgotten on your head. The weight disappears. The comfort is linked to the elastic headband that has no adjustment and no pressure points. It adapts to your head’s anatomy. The tightness is perfect: neither too much nor too little.
It is beautifully designed and extremely practical for triathlon transitions because of its simplicity and no need of adjustments.
The Spiderweb Ultralight is designed to evaporate humidity/sweat and the visor doesn’t get heavier. The open-weave structure reduces weight and increases the drying speed. You lose a little sun protection but nothing drastic. You feel like you are under an gazebo. During a triathlon whilst running the sweat is absorbed and evacuated.
Your sunglasses are not a problem, the arms do not get squished hard against your head with the pressure of the headband. Also you can slide the glasses on top of your head no problem.
We didn’t notice any foul smells developing. After each outing you can wash it in the machine and it dries fast.
We worried about its durability due to its light weight. Its supple structure resists mistreatment, inside your sports bag, anyone sitting on it accidentally…
The Spiderweb Ultralight Visor is an excellent product, used a lot by trail runners and triathletes. Comfortable, light and good protection without any interference.
You can wash it in the machine at 30°, do not put it in a dryer.
