tHE sCIENCE BEHIND vEO
Veo changes the paradigm in dealing with sweat. No absorption, no saturation and dripping in the eyes. Veo’s patented sweat diverting channel ensures that won’t interfere with performance.
The forehead is the body’s best heat radiation real estate. During exertion it experiences increases in sweat and blood flow many times that of other body regions, all for the purpose of thermoregulation. It should not be covered, nor is it realistic to absorb all of the sweat produced there. It is better for temperature management and comfort to let sweat do its cooling work, but to keep it away from the eyes. Veo was designed to work with these physiological principles.

Stop Trying to Absorb it All
When you are sweating up a storm trying to absorb sweat is a losing battle. Even the most advanced fabrics saturate quickly and stop working.
Your Forehead and Skin radiate heat,
so leave them uncovered
The forehead sees a disproportionate amount of blood flow and relies on thermal radiation and sweat evaporation to cool the skin and your body. The more uncovered you can keep your skin the cooler you will be.
we spent several years designing a better solution

Why We Created Veo
Veo started as an idea hatched on a long, sweaty climb up the Flume Trail near Lake Tahoe. With sweat and sunscreen running into his eyes, Jim thought there had to be a solution.
After trying nearly everything under the sun, headbands, hats, and skull caps, he decided to see if he could come up with something that really worked- without saturating or trapping heat, and while letting sweat do its job by evaporating from the skin’s surface. Relying on his experience and connections in the medical device space, he spent several years experimenting with different materials, adhesives, and manufacturing processes to perfect the Veo Strip.
Today, professional cyclists, serious endurance athletes, and sweaty weekend warriors have discovered Veo Strips as a terrific way to keep sweat out of their eyes in training and races. Hot hill climbs, time trials, spin classes, and long rows are just a few of the places athletes are using the Veo.
