Our ll Campionissimo cycling cap has many merits for warm summer rides. This is our first all-white cap made from pre-washed linen/cotton that breathes, wicks, has anti-bacterial properties and highly reflective against the sun's rays. To complete this unique handmade cap we added the Aqua ribbon... because you may just want to ride like the ll Campionissimo!

We've included a black under brim to keep the sun's rays at bay.

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!
