A comfortable and stylish cycling cap is a wardrobe essential for all riders. A cap should be worn across the seasons; it can protect you from the sun, keep the rain (or sweat!) from dripping in your eyes or keep you warm during cold winter rides. The hat you choose should be comfortable and breathable and of course super stylish! Its an essential part of the cyclists quirky fashion wardrobe and when worn well adds colour and pazzaz.
Victor & Liberty provide classic wool caps from iconic Walz as well as the finest tweed versions from Shutt Velo Rapide. For the summer and spring there are cool cotton varieties from Castelli.
Well I Never....
Velomonati rule #22 states:
Cycling caps are for cycling.
"Cycling caps can be worn under helmets, but never when not riding, no matter how hip you think you look. This will render one a douche, and should result in public berating or beating. The only time it is acceptable to wear a cycling cap is while directly engaged in cycling activities and while clad in cycling kit"
While we love 'the rules' and do our best to follow them Victor and Liberty think its acceptable for a cycling cap to be worn off the bike, as it can add a touch of panache to your outfit while you enjoy an apres ride tea or pint
