The cycling cap has been loved by road riders for more than a century. Unlike average caps, however, which are usually promotional items for carrying sponsors’ names, the Rapha Cap is an essential piece of performance roadwear. This season introduces a new fabric and dual sizing.

The Classic Rapha Cap

No average promotional tool, the Rapha Cap is an essential piece of roadwear. Made from a soft, lightweight technical cotton it is also water resistant, fast-drying and very breathable. The inside of the cap is lined with moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial tape, and has an elastic fastener to hold it in place. With clean, modern lines, the cap can be worn under a helmet or on its own, and can be folded into a jersey pocket when not needed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Cap This cap is designed to cover the top of your head and this it does with some aplomb. The top of my head was indeed entirely covered. The colour I selected (plain black) was chosen to reduce the level of ridicule received from non-cycling people and this was only partially successful because my wife said I looked like a pin head and laughed hard at me. I am glad I didn't choose the pink version. The peak is soft and folds up if you want to look like a simpleton, or folds down if you want your forward vision obscured when you're on the drops. It's a lovely little cap and my head is glad I bought it. Pricy for a plain black cap though.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Solid cap, questionable brim length. Having bought the previous Rapha Cap, I was hoping this was going to be about the same, except that I noticed it was no longer a one-size fits all situation. This was good, as I felt the old cap ran a little small and restricting to my head. Now having used the cap for a few weeks, I still haven't found the perfect way to fit this on my head and under my helmet. The brim always seems to get in the way of my vision, so I have now turned it around instead. It's an annoyance. Other than that, the fit is better than the previous model.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stylish, Quality cap to match the club Jersey Nice quality cap - slightly heavier weight cotton than a typical race cap. Seems reasonably wind proof - haven't tried out it's shower resistance yet - wore it recently on a 220 mile tour of Scotland, and it was comfortable - reasonable sizing as well (some caps can be a little small) - haven't put it through the washing machine yet - so unable to comment on shrinkage etc, but hope this will not be an issue - if it is I will repost here

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Comfortable and quick drying Unlike my previous cheaper cap this one is a) better made and very comfortable and b) it seems to dry very quickly. It seems less grim to replace after a cafe break!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality I wore the hat once and it was great. I then washed it and the peak is now falling off? Very disappoint as I am a big fan of Rapha gear.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good fit The fit is good. I bought this for the looks, and the word that it would be a little bit more generous fit.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Nice cap! Good cap. I use cap a lot, hard to find a size that fits my big head (60cm). This fits good. The flap is strong and stays wear you want in the wind. It holds up good in washing. I wash it after every ride, still as new.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never without the cap Great all year round, rain or sunshine. It only falters during the coldest winter mornings (when the Belgian cap would be better) or the hottest summer afternoons (time for the light cap). The variety of colours makes it easy to match the caps to your kits or bikes, or add to the collection, which, like any keen cyclist, you should have.

The previous design was super solid and the best fit that I've found for my head shape. My dog finally destroyed mine after 4 years. Bummed I can't get the old one. Was there a material change as well as the new panel/shape change?

Last year it was one size fits all, now there are two sizes. Now, is the larger model larger than the old one size fits all?

Asked by: JaJacobsson
Hi, last years 'one size' is now the S/M sizing. The M/L is a larger fit. Please do refer to the sizing guide for fit measurements.

Hi, The cap is a 'one size fits all' and as such should fit you. We do offer a free 90 day return period should you find it not suitable.
