Polygiene Treated for odor & bacteria control
Uses a special ODOR CRUNCH Swedish technology that works as a natural anti-odor treatment by capturing, ‘crunching,’ and permanently removing odors using natural silica particles, the primary component of common sand.
This keeps clothing and fabrics smelling fresher for longer and reduces the amount of washing required.
Moisture Wicking for sweat absorption
The moisture-wicking fabric used in the balaclava is specifically designed to pull sweat away from the skin and move it to the surface of the fabric, where it can evaporate quickly. This helps to keep your skin dry and comfortable, preventing the buildup of sweat and odors - even during long and intense rides.
4 way stretch to maximize flexibility
The 4-way stretch fabric allows for maximum flexibility and movement, so you can wear the balaclava comfortably under the helmet during long rides. The breathable fabric also allows for air to circulate, keeping you cool and comfortable.
Hydration pack friendly
The ViaTerra 2nd Skin balaclava comes with a two-way hydration slit, which allows you to have the bite valve within easy reach during the ride. This feature allows you to stay hydrated without the hassle of removing your helmet or balaclava, which can be especially useful during long rides in hot and humid weather.
Hydration tube guides
The elastic loops on both sides of the balaclava help guide the hydration tube to the front hydration slit so you don't have to worry about it getting in the way or becoming dislodged.
Flat lock seams for added strength & durability
Flatlock seams are created by overlapping two pieces of fabric and then sewing them together, which results in a strong, durable and comfortable seam that lies flat against the skin. This construction method makes the ViaTerra 2nd skin balaclava more comfortable to wear, as there are no raised or irritating seams against the skin. Additionally, flatlock seams also reduce stress along the seams, which helps to prevent the balaclava from stretching out of shape or becoming damaged over time, making it more durable.
Soft piping around the viewport
The ViaTerra 2nd Skin balaclava features soft piping around the viewport, which provides comfort during long days in the saddle. The soft piping is a strip of soft and flexible material that surrounds the viewport, which is the opening that allows you to see through the balaclava. The soft piping helps to prevent the viewport from rubbing against your skin, which can cause irritation and discomfort during long motorcycle rides.
Branded reflectives provide enhanced visibility during night rides

Flat lock seam construction to provide strength and stretchability, while reducing stress along the seams

I got the product today. It aas the last piece and the stock was out as soon as i placed my order. Was'nt expecting too much from a balaclava. When i worn it today i ft the difference from the previous balaclava that was an aspeda one i was able to breathe well and the material was soft compared to the aspida. I hope this one lasts a long time . I am loving the effort put by viaterra on their every single products. This is my first online purchase and i have other 2 products from these guys and they are my glives the grid and rooster . Will be buying more stuffs from them. I think not too many people know about this brand . Love viaterra

Another good product from Viaterra. Perfect fit and high quality moisture wicking material. Suitable for all weather conditions and protects the helmet interiors too. Very reasonably priced as well!
Review of the 2nd skin balaclava:
Bang for the buck is what I can say about when it comes to ViaTerra's Balaclava.
The material used is soft for the skin and also the head. The outer edges of the eye view area (piping) which they have mentioned in the product description really shows. Unlike cheap quality ones that actually leave a impress on the face when used, this doesn't, thus the comfort.
I would like to add a bit of caution to riders wearing spects,
we have to be careful and patient while wearing spects because the balaclava can actually make it a bit different for the spects to be worn. So pls be careful especially with frameless glasses
I found a bit difficult to insert the mouth piece of my ViaTerra hydration pack as the hole provided was actually a bit small in my personal opinion. When we are riding wasn't easy to fiddle at sometimes to make the mouth piece reach my mouth. A suggestion maybe to make the shape in shape of a triangle or square so that in the base it's more. Or even a bigger circle might work.
All in all can't complain much other than this. As i said a good vfm product from ViaTerra as always.
Keep up the great work guys.
Need a balaclava? Just go for it.
Having used it for rides during summer, winter & monsoon, I can vouch for its quality and reliability. Easily washable, easy to wear & maintain. Quality of material is also amazing.
