This one’s been a long time coming! Our friends at Ringtail have finally launched their new web shop, which is stocked with their Breeze Breaker jacket, Breezer vest, Don Cherry cap and Pocket Trumpet cap. All of these products are made in the Los Angeles area, with details that are inspired by many of the rides you’ve read about on this site. While it might be a small initial launch, Ringtail is aspiring to become a great American-made cycling apparel brand.
Head over to Ringtail to see what’s up. If you see your size sold out in something you want, don’t fret there’s more stock coming next week.
Also check out some more product photos below.
Mash somehow landed collaborations with a few luxury brands, namely Comme Des Garcons, Chanel, Gucci and LV. They’re sure to sell out fast, so head over to Mash to see the collection.
Mesh ain’t limited to trucker hats. Check out these new mesh caps, offered by Cadence, featuring a breathable mesh, the perfect option for those forthcoming warm days. Available in color halftone or black, depending on your personal style. See more at Cadence.
Or maybe they’re Jailhouse Rock?
Cycling caps are both an icon of cycling and an incredibly functional piece of apparel. They shield the sun from your face, redirect sweat from your eyes and hide hat messy, mat of hair while at a cafe or a bar, post-ride.
Design and construction must go hand in hand when conceptualizing a product, regardless of simplicity. These Stinner Frameworks caps were designed by Team Dream Team, built by Pace in California and are one of the most carefully executed designs I’ve seen. All of the lines match up perfectly, something that isn’t illustrated accurately in Aaron’s product photos, so I took the liberty of documenting it myself.
I know this was a bit long-winded, but I like to take the time with products like this.

For spring, Cinelli has two new cap models available. The Strato Faster cap, featuring a halftone fade and the Caleido cap, with an all-over dot pattern. Head over to the Winged Store to shop.
Golden Saddle’s iconic caps are back in stock. Made in the USA by Pace, these are one of the most popular cycling caps to date in my opinion. Swoop one or the pair over at GSC.
A few people have emailed, asking where they can buy one of the CX Nats 2015 caps that have appeared in a few galleries on the site. Well, Gary at Rothera Cycling just posted them online, but they won’t last long… Swoop now and save a heritage tree.
Cadence’s roots are in Seattle, so it would make sense that they would look to baseball cap manufacturer Ebbets to make their Abide wool caps. These high quality hats are made in Seattle, by hand and are in stock now at Cadence.
Aaron at Stinner Frameworks worked with Sean at Team Dream Team to design a “jailhouse” and “Barbasol” kit. With a black and white, or red, white and blue option, there’s something for everyone. If you’re up to your neck in kits, there are also matching caps.
Head over to Stinner Frameworks for more information.
Swift Industries’ offerings for the holiday season keep growing. Here’s the latest addition to their catalog: the Scout Cap, made by Pace Sportswear from a custom-printed fabric. I love the Stanley flask in the print!
