It’s always great to see two brands you admire join forces, even if it’s for something as simple as a cycling cap. Cadence and Strava did just that, designing a cap that will pull a chord in both design geeks and diehard fanboys. Head over to Strava to pick one up.
This one’s too good to not give some love:
“A couple of years ago, Padraig, over at Red Kite Prayer, wrote a great paean to the cotton cycling cap. People have been asking if there would ever be a Richard Sachs cycling cap about as long as I’ve been building bicycles frames. It took me nearly 4 decades, but I finally am bringing a cycling cap to the market. And now I’m bringing another one.”
Pick one up for $22 at Richard Sachs.
One of our favorite shops in the Pacific Northwest has a new cycling cap in stock. Made by Double Darn in Portland, these caps feature the new Velo Cult logo and come in two sizes, medium or large. In stock now at Velo Cult.
Bike Jerks celebrates 10 years on the ‘net this year and to commemorate their decade online, they teamed up with Minneapolis cap maker Hammerbone on a small run of caps. There are only 25 available, so if you’re a fan, swoop asap. Head over to Bike Jerks for more.

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.

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.
