Cycling caps serve a number of purposes. Firstly, they keep the sun out of your eyes. Secondly, they keep the rain out of your eyes. Thirdly, they keep the sweat out of your eyes. And lastly? They look really cool.
A cycling cap is an expression of personality just as much as a tool of functionality, and as a result brands make a special effort to offer them in tons of cool prints and styles. That, and if there’s a particular club, team or organisation you want to support, they’ll more than likely have their own version.
You can wear them peak down, or peak up, but ideally under a helmet – here are a few of our favourites…
Chapeau! Lightweight Polka Dot Cap
With red, white and blue polka dots on this cap you can view it as a nod of support to the GB squad at this year’s Olympics – or just a cool pattern to finish off your favourite cycling outfit.
One size fits all with stretchy elastic around the rear of the cap, you can pick this one up for £14.99.
