What they say: An ultra-light and breathable cycling cap for warm days.
What we say: We’ve said it before, but you get what you pay for with Gore. Made from a polyester and elastane mix, this is a slim-line cap with quite a snug fit, although the flat-locked stitching used and the fabric’s inbuilt springiness ensure there’s no rub and plenty of give.
It’s a highly-breathable lightweight garment, too, and offers great protection when the sun’s blazing and you want to protect your scalp from a grilling. Reflective detailing along the stripe across the length of the cap and along the peak’s edge also offer a degree of visibility in poor light.
Available in one size and in three simple colorways, black and white, grey and white and this blue and white option.
Conclusion: Elegant and practical, this is a cap that’s best suited to days when the sun is turned up to 11.
