This tech twist on a traditional road cap is great if you want to look like a Euro road pro, but with a warm head.

Rather than the normal cotton ‘trade’ caps, this one uses Windstopper softshell front panels and mesh back panels. These stop ice cream headaches and sweaty scalps respectively, with a towelling sweat band for good measure.

The neoprene peak is just long enough to keep low sun and rain out of your eyes and it fits fine under a helmet without having to take out pads. Only time-served roadies will truly appreciate the styling though.
