What is Phairo?

Phairo is an Australian Designed and Australian Made cycling headwear designed to keep the sweat off your face while you ride. Since it was first designed in 2004, the Phairo has gone through some extensive and rigorous testing over more than a hundred thousand kilometres in all conditions in all seasons with over 30 test riders.

And what do the test riders say? Simply that “It Works!”

Aqua-X Ice Skin Sleeves

These Aqua X Ice skin Sun Block Sports Sleeves are made in Korea.

Phairo comes in three styles, ‘Race’ and ‘Recreation’ and ‘Pony’.
Race and Recreation are essentially the same, but the Race cut is 5cm shorter, leaving it with less drape at the back of the neck. The Recreation cut gives you the option to get more sun coverage on the back of the neck with more drape. They have both been tested up to 90km/h and still, it can’t be noticed flapping around. You will forget you are even wearing it, except that most of the sweat will not be running through your eyes and into your glasses.
The Pony comes in both Race and Recreation cut, but also has an opening at the back to allow a ponytail out.

Phairo will change your riding experience.

Race Cut

Less drape at neck for those that like that race feel

Recreation Cut

More drape at neck for sun protection

The Pony

The Pony has a 14cm opening to allow a high or low ponytail out

Phairo Pony


Backorders – If your choice shows ‘Backordered’ it is usually custom made for you. It may take up to 4 weeks, but most often quicker.

“In short: it’s a winner!” By Dr Richard Bonner

In short: its a winner! Had to watch the video a few times to get it right. POSITIVES: Its comfortable, light, and absorbent. My head didn’t get hot and I didn’t get one bead of sweat on my sunglasses. It gives excellent sun protection to the back of my neck without sticking in to my […]
