The Iconic Cotton Cycling cap.
This classically styled cap is made from tight weave windproof cotton. 100% natural fibres and highly breathable. A three-panel cap crown is sewn from three pieces of fabric: a strip and two half-moon pieces with an elasticated panel at the rear. The snow white cotton ribbon adds the speed of style to the mat red material. The underside of the peak is our Peloton design for 2017, inspired by the colours and mirage of a bunch of cyclists in flight.
Casquette is French for “cap” it is used to refer to the traditional peaked cotton cap worn by racing cyclists. The peak can if worn down provide shade from sun or storms. If worn up for the hard man of Roubaix look or reverse can protect the neck from sun (the DeVlaeminck)
