Steven Wieder, a Sarasota dentist and outdoor sports enthusiast, developed SAAKA® as a response to his frustration with conventional head and wrist bands.
"Southwest Florida is arguably one of the hottest places in the United States," says Wieder. "But, that doesn't stop us from playing sports and engaging in our favorite outdoor activities 12 months out of the year. We needed something better to prevent sweat from compromising our passions."
Wieder experimented with high performance fabrics until he found just the right combination of comfort, moisture-wicking action and absorption.
"SAAKA® bands were born out of necessity on Siesta Key, Florida, where we know and understand best how to tackle the heat and humidity," says Wieder.
The three layers that make up a SAAKA® band work together to pull sweat away from the skin and allow it to evaporate. A highly absorbent core of viscose from BAMBOO fabric collects 30 percent more moisture than cotton terry cloth and has natural anti-odor properties.
“We all want to keep sweat out of the way of our game,” Wieder says. “SAAKA® is a simple concept that solves a frustrating problem.”
SAAKA® dedicates 10 percent of profits to Sports Charities USA, a non-profit charity promoting the health and human benefit of athletic endeavors.
