The cycling cap, or the 'casquette' in French, is a bit of an icon in the cycling world. This simple cloth cap has graced the heads of all the greats over the past century since its introduction. The casquette is part of the culture of cycling, literally part of the fabric of our great sport. They became the ultimate mark of a professional cyclist during their pre-helmet hayday. Sponsors didn't miss the opportunity to brand up their teams. Think Coppi/Bianchi; Simpson/Peugeot; Merckx/Molteni; Gimondi/Salvarani or more recently Pantani/Mercatone. All wore the simple casquette with style. A timeless piece of kit for every cyclists' wardrobe.
