Faction Cycling Co: Upcycled Cycling Caps Reup Jun 2, 2010

Faction‘s been busy this Spring. With such a high demand for their Upcycled Cycling Caps, the guys ran out of stock quickly. Luckily for us, they just re-upped their stock and numerous styles of the Upcycled Caps are now available. Head on over!

    How can you conceivably advocate, for GOOD reasons, wearing a helmet to avoid head injuries, and then post sometime positive about cycling caps, which basically make it impossible to wear a helmet? It seems a bit hypocritical.

    All of these boutique cycling cap companies should try and figure out how to make helmets, which save peoples’ lives, not look silly, rather than continuing to produce a flashy product that encourages and feeds into the unfortunate attitude that one’s coolness as a cyclist can be measured by the frequency of riding without a helmet.

    Dude… What?!

    Cycling Caps are for you to wear UNDER A HELMET. I do it all the time. That’s what they’re there for.

    What cycling caps have you worn that won’t allow you to make a helmet? And are you seriously saying that rather than making a $20 – $40 hat, small companies should be making molds for a $100 helmet?

    As for the “goofiness” I think my helmet looks fine…

    Come on man. Think before you write shit like that.

    You can even fit a baseball cap under a lot of helmets.

    jeff must be new to cycling.

    i see many people as well as myself who will ride with a cap under a helmet.

    im all for intelligent dialogue but at least do some research before you come to the table.

    im not trying to be a dick but what function does a cycling cap serve under a helmet? unless its cold i dont really see a purpose. does it make your helmet more comfy? is it for soaking sweat? does the little brim really protect from the sun that well?
    i guess to me a cap under helmet=too hot=useless
    cycling caps def look more ‘cool’ than helmets …but i wear a helmet cause i care more about my brains than sporting cool

    It does all of those things and the good ones aren’t any hotter than wearing a tshirt in the summer. It wicks sweat and keeps you cool…

    Not sure about this helmets saving lives stuff. The evidence worldwide is that there has been no reduction in casualty rates during a period of significant helmet take – up. Reasons are difficult to determine owing to difficulty of running controlled experiments (and pro helmet assertions come from very uncontrolled experiments). But there’s risk compensation by drivers and cyclists; diversion of attention from real safety measures (e.g. ‘cyclecraft’ training); the limited ability of helmet construction in crashes over 12 mph with another vehicle; the conversion of straight on impacts into brain and spinal cord wrecking twisting motions. It’a all there, for and against, on http://www.cyclehelmets.org If you wear one, at least make it an informed decision. Otherwise, wear your berreta (cap) and stay cool.
