Many interpretations of the cycling cap evolved. Here's Barry Hoban, a professional in the 60s - 70s, wearing his version of the cycling cap to beat the heat.  








Fortunately, our cycling caps are handmade from pre-washed, lightweight linen/cotton to wick moisture and help keep you cool.  We welcome the dog days of summer.

The Merits of Linen/cotton

photo Red Dots Cycling





Yesterday, on my Sunday ride the weather hovered around (30C). The hot spell continues here in the lower mainland. And I always have a Red Dots cycling cap.

Many of our 3-season caps are made from linen cotton. We also use cotton and wool but love linen/cotton for it's natural characteristics. Linen is very absorbent, it basically pulls moisture away off the body and keeps you dryer. It's also lightweight, breathable & antibacterial. And you don't have to worry about shrinkage, we pre-wash our fabric. Chapeau to linen/cotton our favorite and hard working fabric!
