Team Sky Merino Hat

No longer available


Merino cycling beanie for cold days

The Team Sky Merino Hat is made from a luxury merino wool. The hat has a small amount of nylon woven into the fabric to make it durable and ensure a snug fit. The natural fibre of merino wicks sweat away from the head and the fabric is quick drying.

The hat is designed to be worn with or without a helmet and is fully reversible. It is black on one side and Sky blue on the reverse. The two-inch earband can be folded up as well as to provide some stylish versatility.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from indispensible Even on a warm day I will tuck this into a pocket in case conditions change. It fits great under the helmet and yet is a perfect barrier to the cold. It wicks great. Perfect when you know you are going to gain some altitude and the descent could be cold. Yesterday I went out without it because it was like a summer day, but at the summit I regretted my decision not to bring it. I consider it to be more important than my second spare tube.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice but very very long Nice quality and warm beanie but it is so long that it will have trouble fitting under a helmet. Nice as a standalone beanie and is thick as well. However, when doubled up like in the picture, it will not fit under a helmet unless the helmet is a larger size and then it becomes a safety issue with such a large gap.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It is just a hat. But, what a hat it is! I have two Rapha Team Sky Merino Hats now. So I do not have to wait till one of them dries out after washing. They are warm when neccesary, but never too warm. And they absorb a lot of sweat without getting smelly. [important for cyclist :-]

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Looks classy and nice to wear I saw this a year ago and thought it looked really stylish, so couldn't resist it this time round. Merino wool makes for great cycling products where lightness and warmth are concerned and the Rapha design is so distinctive.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Comfy, does what it needs to So far, only worn for casual use, but fits the bill perfectly (fits the head actually, I've not tried it on a duck, yet) and doesn't take up too much room. I have other headwear specifically for cycling

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Even better! I have a couple of merino hats of the previous model. I have been very satisfied with them. This new model was a surprise: it is even better! More material used gives more possibilities of wearing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect hat! Fits my 7 5/8 head, good color, comfortable, and all around awesome hat. I haven't cycled with it, but would probably do a bang-up job on the bike as well.
