A Belgian-style hat designed to keep your head protected from the winter elements. Made from an insulating fabric, the hat is lined with soft mesh lining and finished with pink details.


The Rapha Winter Hat

Winters are hard in Belgium. An ice-cold wind from the North Sea blows across the plains and murs, carrying rain and sleet. This classic, Belgian-style cycling hat has been designed with such conditions in mind. Worn under a helmet or on its own, the Rapha Winter hat will keep you warm and may even increase your training miles.

The hat is made from brush-backed, stretch Sportwool™ (61% polyester, 25% wool, 14% elastane) giving great insulation. A soft mesh lining wicks away perspiration to improve comfort. The seven panel design gives an excellent fit, and one size fits all. The ribbed ear guard gives added protection and can also be folded up for an authentic Freddy Maertens look or wear the hat backwards like Rapha Condor’s Dean Downing.


"…knit from sportwool, a synthetic/wool blend that doesn’t itch, but is stretchy and comfortable. The one-size-fits all cap isn’t too snug on your head, avoiding the squeezy feeling you can get from some synthetic cycling caps (and keeping your coiffure intact)."
Andrew J. Bernstein, Bicycling

"…Rapha’s typically understated branding gives a really classy feel."

"Much better than ear warmers / headbands. great styling"

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Warm Head throuhout the Ride Works really well in sub-zero Celcius Rides, and keeps your Ears and Neck warm throughout the Ride, although you might get a little cold Forhead sensation down hill. Rather perfect, I'd say! (And I do have a rather large Head Size.)

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice hat, but too small for most Nice hat, standard Rapha quality (i.e. Excellent!) but really small. I don't have a big head, but its super tight, a few stitches popped first time I put it on, and leaves a serious "dent" in my forehead. Baggier and more Belgian would be better

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is for winter I bought this hat for the cold weather and my first run out was done in 13'C. This was far too warm for this hat and I was melting. The next ride was done in 6'C and then the performance was perfect. Essentially the weather needs to be proper cold! and when it is 'proper cold' the hat is essential
