New: King of the Mountains... show your dots!

We have been working on trying to secure the right polka dot fabric and it hasn't been fruitful. Carolle and I decided to use our trusty embroidery machine to produce our own red dots design. And we couldn't be happier... introducing our new King of the Mountains cycling cap!

It's no surprise our new KoMs cap launch coincides with the 2015 Tour de France notably celebrating the 40th anniversary of the Maillot a pois rouges - the polka dot jersey.

Made from pre-washed navy blue linen/cotton for a cycling cap that is comfortable, breathable, anti-bacterial and wicks moisture rapidly. The sporty French tricolor ribbon is handmade. Embroidered red dots under brim makes a classic look you can show when you feel like it, we thought one would like the choice to show your dots. 

We're very happy to finish the KoMs before Bastille Day (July 14) coexisting with the first mountain stage: Tarbes - La Pierre Saint-Martin stage 10.

Available in size: S/M and M/L here and also enjoy limited free shipping.

Vive le King of the Mountains!

Belgian climbing ace, Lucien Van Impe was the first to wear the polka dot jersey in 1975. 
He won two stages and went on to win the KoMs classification.
