Cycling caps transcend the sport. They've been gracing the heads of riders in heat, in sun, in cold, in snow, pretty much since the first safety bicycle hit the unpaved road. Today, though, the caps are only associated with pro teams, and most of what you can find reflects the blatantly commercial imperative of pro gear. Giordana turns back the pages of time to bring forth their Sport Cycling Cap.It's just like any cap of an earlier era. The single-color body that matches the brim. The single ribbon running front to back with minimal decoration on the short brim. As with caps of yesteryear, there are four grommets atop the cap giving better ventilation, or at least classic style. In a nod to the aesthetics, the Giordana aegis patch is sewn in front.The Giordana Sport Cycling Cap has a 100% cotton body. There is light elastic around the base. The interior of the base is sewn with an anti-bacterial synthetic headband. It comes in Black/beige, Grey/black, Black/red, and White.

During my second year of racing, I received the most unfortunate nickname of "Crash" for the 5 crashes I had that season, 3 in training and 2 in races. Only one of these crashes could clearly be considered my fault (overshot an off-camber descent of which I wasn't familiar). The others all felt l ... Read More »
