Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful cap. Fits well. Could breathe better. Purchased two of these caps along with one club cap and one of the classic caps. The lightweight cap is the thinner of these caps that I've purchased, and match the jerseys I've bought along with them. They feel great and don't squeeze my large head too much. I've worn this cap on hot days, cold nights, and wet morning rides. They do dry fairly quick when wet, but they don't breathe very well compared to some other fabrics. That's the cost of style I would suppose, but I do appreciate the liner around the caps, which provides a soft comfortable feel on my forehead, and the bill hasn't been a huge issue while wearing a helmet.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fits well on my big head! I've had so much trouble trying to find a well-fitting cycling cap. Even my team-issue cycling caps fit a little too tight for my big head! I like the fact that Rapha's lightweight cap holds true to its name. I can feel its ventilation work well. It also holds in enough heat during cooler, autumn riding. The best thing - it matches our Tall Sock Racing team kits! How cool is that?

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely fit & great colours I bought this for a little bit of rain protection on my commute which it does well but also I find I use the peak as an up/down visor as well. The sizing is good on this too, having tried specific sizes in Vulpine caps which were quite poor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice lightweight cap. I have the first version of the lightweight cap and this seems improved. As I keep the hair tight I like the size options now. The S/M fits me much better than "one size." The cut seems tighter and basically goes away once on head. Material is nice and light for transition days. The pink fade matches the SL weight jersey and I may grab a chartreuse also! Brim is a nice length if down and flips up well w/o tightening on head.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good cap, nice design Got this in the data print pattern last year, the cap is as lightweight as I need it to be for warm weather but protection from flying things, and has stood up impeccably to washing, no fade or peeling. Would have liked the cap to come in a small size as I have a tiny head... This years version does I think so a good improvement. On the pricey side but nice to match the jersey I bought. There is a reflective detail on the side which might have been better on the underside of the peak as its obscured by my helmet normally.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great cap A light and good looking cap which can be worn in all temperatures. The stitching on the visor of my first cap began to fray after a few wears and so I returned it and received a replacement with no fuss.

Nature has given me a permanent aero hair cut and as such I tend to suffer when the sun is out. Does the material have a sun protection factor?

Asked by: Stout Lad

Hi, My head measures exactly 22 inches so right in between sizes. Having no Rapha store nearby, what would you recommend regarding size. Go large og go small?

Asked by: Dave2016
Hi, if you prefer a tighter fit or have very short hair, we suggest sizing down. Otherwise, you can choose the bigger size.

quick question. love the product but in regards to the " navy blue/white" cap from the front view it looks like it has a "black" strip but from the back it looks "white". could you clarifiy what colour the strip is please? cheers 

Asked by: raging unicorn
Hi, the stripe on all the caps fades from front to back so the dark blue fades to white.
