Road Cycling Caps for Road and Gravel Biking
The most common type of cycling cap is the classic road cycling cap, which is worn underneath the helmet particularly in the summer months. It is usually made of fabric blend that ensures fast moisture-wicking. The peak is often made of a sewn-on, man-made material, so it can be folded up easily and won’t be damaged in the washing machine. Cycling caps are usually offered in unisex sizes and with rubber appliqués at the back of the head, but there are different manufacturing methods that impact the fit. Individual caps are offered in women's and men's designs, or in two sizes. Classic designs such as three- and four-panel cuts feature their own distinctive fit; more modern seamless caps made from stretch fabrics, on the other hand, conform to your head’s shape perfectly. Of course, only you can be the judge when it comes to style: manufacturers such as GripGrab or ASSOS offer rather plain, monochromatic designs, while Cinelli or Endura are sometimes known for brightly-coloured and whimsical printed caps that are also popularly worn without a helmet or for other sports.
