Tom's Review: L'Enfer du Nord Winter Cap

Enjoy many miles with your L'enfer du Nord... Thanks Tom!

We would like to thank all of our customers who have purchased our popular L'enfer du Nord winter caps. Today's review from Tom gave us an extra smile. With the ever changing weather, here in the west coast, always dictate an adaptable cap. Our L'enfer du Nord fits the bill. Spring is still a bit cool here, and I find myself wearing my L'enfer du Nord knowing full well it will keep me stylishly warm.  

It's a 'helluva' cap.

New: The Heroic Cycling Cap Collection

New: The Heroic Cycling Cap Collection.

We are proud to announce a new series of caps... Introducing our new Heroic Cycling Cap Collection!

Inspired by the two-tone color caps from the Heroic era of cycling. We offer three caps with our own unique choice of colors: Blue/Red, Black/Grey and Orange/Aqua. Available in two sizes: S/M and M/L. Handmade from durable linen/cotton. Linen is naturally moisture absorbent. This fabric basically pulls moisture away off the body and keeps you dryer. It's also lightweight, breathable and antibacterial. And we have you covered... we pre-wash all of our fabric so you don't have to worry about shrinkage!

Enjoy our Heroic Era Collection.

The Hero: Fausto Coppi,
1946 Giro di Lombardia

Feedback: Lone Wolf Cycling Cap

via Taylor Clark

The feedback from the custom Lone Wolf winter cycling caps have been so positive -  here's Taylor Clark's recent comments...

Hey! I jus wanted you guys to know that I recently purchased a Lone Wolf Cyling winter cap that you manufacturered and it is fantastic! I have done my fair share of cold weather cycling in some pretty crappy conditions and this cap is by far the best. The quality and material are stellar. The cap is aesthetically appealing and functional. Cheers! Taylor

Thank you and enjoy Taylor!
