A crown for the king of the mountains
Whether he was in the peloton or attacking off the front, Lucho Herrera was always recognisable, either by his hairstyle (black and wild, a caricaturist's dream) or his cap.
When we chose to honour Lucho’s 1987 successes, this headwear was an obvious reference. Featuring the Colombian tricolour and the bold typography of his eighties trade team sponsor, we have added an embroidered beetle under the peak, a nod to the group nickname given to Colombian riders, ‘los escarabajos’. The cap also features a traditional decorative stripe of high end cotton twill across the top. This celebratory three panel cap will look great on or off the bike, with or without a helmet.
