A doff of the cap

This traditional cycling cap is part of a Check collection, which celebrates iconic team kits and includes a jersey, gilet, wind jacket and socks. The checkered ribbon that runs across the top and onto the peak of the cap is a throwback to a time of simple designs, few sponsor logos, and riders who considered style almost as important as the racing. Based on the new and improved Classic Cap, the soft, lightweight technical cotton is fast-drying and breathable, and has a water repellent treatment to for protection from sudden showers. The inside is lined with moisture-wicking, anti-bacterial tape for comfort and freshness, and has an elastic fastener to hold it in place. The cap can be worn under a helmet or on its own, and can be folded into a jersey pocket when not needed. Most importantly, it looks smart when paired with the matching jersey and gilet, or when you’re sat at the café.
