It’s easy to keep a clear view ahead with Attaquer’s range of cycling caps. We’ve taken the old-school cycling cap style and continue to add fresh spins on it, including the iconic F*ck Yeah motif. Just as with all of our cycling gear, these caps offer comfort, breathability and designs to set you apart. We’ve selected top European fabrics and refined the fit to deliver the best cycling caps Australia-wide and across the world.
Cycling caps for rain and shine
There are Attaquer options to suit whether you’re wanting to keep the sun off your brow when the sun is strong, or keep the tips of your ears cosy in winter. Our summer cycling caps are made in Italy with breathable and durable cotton-polyester. Meanwhile, our water-resistant winter caps offer quad stitch seams for a comfortable fit and an extended length to shield your ears and neck from the elements.
Designs to inspire and excite
Why not add some attitude underneath your helmet? We’ve kept our cycling cap designs simple yet spirited, implementing bold patterns and modern colour choices to suit a wide variety of cycling kit. Flipping the peak or brim up will flash some inspiration to anyone you meet. These caps of course pair ideally with our other cycling accessories including cycling warmers and F*ck Yeah cycling gloves.
What purpose do cycling caps serve?
The humble cycling cap, or casquette, serves a number of purposes. A well-fitting cap can keep the sweat from dripping in your eyes. The shorter peak can help to shield your eyes from the sun’s glare without obstructing your view, and can also provide protection against the wind or rain. Cycle caps also offer breathability to help with optimal temperature regulation, keeping you cooler in summer and warmer in winter. All in all, they can provide effective protection for your ride and their versatility is part of what makes them popular.
How should a cycling cap fit?
One size fits most when it comes to our cycling cap fits. The fit should be snug without feeling too tight around the band, and most importantly sit uniformly with the cycling cap under a helmet. Whether you wear your peak up or peak down is totally up to you – as is your level of luft (space) at the top of the cap when you don’t have your helmet on. In any case, the best fit will offer comfort, breathability and a great look.
Do professional riders use cycling caps?
They certainly do. Cycling caps have long been a fixture for professional cyclists, harking back to the 1950s and earlier. Since helmets were mandated in professional races in 2003, there are still plenty of pros who’ll wear a cycle helmet and cap where conditions dictate. For anyone riding out in the elements, a cycling cap can support full focus and performance.
What to look for in a cycling cap
There are a few characteristics that can help to ensure comfort when you’re riding with a cycling cap.
The right style for the conditions
Our winter cycling caps have different features to a year-round cap design, such as the extra length to keep the ears and neck warm. Selecting the right option for the ride can help to ensure the best level of comfort and temperature control.
The right fabrics
The right cycling cap fabric can make the difference between overheating and a cool, comfortable ride. With Attaquer choosing the right fabric is easy – for example, we’ve combined cotton and polyester for our warmer weather cycling caps which provides both breathability and durability.
A smooth, consistent fit
The last thing any cyclist needs is bumps or ridges under their helmet causing a headache. It’s why we’ve focused on streamlining our cap seams and incorporating multiple panels so they sit flatter and won’t distract.
Personal style and colour
Naturally, this comes down to personal choice. Cyclists could keep it classic with a minimalistic monochrome, go big with a bold repeating pattern or choose a coloured peak to either coordinate or contrast with existing kit.
As with all Attaquer cycling clothing, our cycling caps can be chosen with confidence. We’ve selected high quality fabrics and designed our products with long-term enjoyment in mind. We offer international shipping, a flexible returns policy and a unique Crash Replacement Policy if you need it. Attaquer dealers can be found across Australia and around the world, or you can order direct from this website.
