Cinelli Tarsila Schubert Deep Love Dive

Keeping the maillot jaune from 2022 to 2023, it's the Cinelli colourful cycling cap collaboration with Brazilian-born street artist Tarsila Schubert for the Cinelli Art Program. Having exhibited her artworks worldwide, and has worked for numerous international brands, she has dedicated her life to multi-diverse art. This one was so popular that we've totally sold out, but we have plenty of other brilliantly colourful Cinelli caps here!


Mapei Retro Cycling Cap

Best cycling caps: 3) Mapei Retro Cycling Cap

Racing up the best-selling list for 2023, the Mapei retro cotton cycle cap complete with the colourful MAPEI cubes, made in Italy that is an accurate reproduction of the original team issue cap that became so famous from 1993 - 2002. The reason for the accuracy is the fact that the cap factory still had the original design in their archives, and we can see why this bright cap is a favourite among the retro lovers!


Prendas Black Cycling Cap 

We love the colourful here at Prendas, but when it comes to sleek, you can't go wrong with the all black cap - and it seems you all agree. New to our bestsellers list this year, our black cap is a favourite with cycling clubs looking for a base to print their own logos. With just a small Prendas logo on the side, these are made in Italy with the same quality fabrics as the rest of our range.


San Pellegrino Retro Cycling Cap

Best cycling caps: 2) San Pellegrino Retro Cycling Cap

Our San Pellegrino cap stays at number four in the bestselling list for 2023, the perfect match to our short and long sleeve jerseys, as well as the entire San Pellegrino collection in that dazzling orange. Thanks to a recent adjustment of the exact hue used in production, this cap is more accurate to the original retro than ever before.


Bianchi Cycling Cap White Check 

A household name in cycling, it's no surprise that Bianchi's cycling caps, which are made by Nalini, maintain the same great quality that we see across all the kit we stock from them here at Prendas. This white check cap is a special edition version of their Celeste collection, featuring an elasticated back for a snug fit, and a Bianchi logo on the peak's underside.


Peugeot Retro White Cycling Cap

It may have dropped down the leaderboard, but the iconic checkerboard design never goes out of style. The black and white was first adopted by the Peugeot Cycling Team in 1963 with riders like Tom Simpson and Eddy Merckx both wearing a Peugeot team cap like this during their career including in the BP iteration which we also sell, featuring on the podiums of cycling's most prestigious races time and time again.


Groupama Française des Jeux 2023 Cap 

Even though we're best known for retro, we have plenty of kit from current pro teams like this cap from the Groupama-Française des Jeux (FDJ) team. This predominantly French Team's cap is made by Alé and features the tricolour down the centre of the peak so you know it's representing Les Bleus! We only have one more of the navy version that sold so well, but we have plenty of the same cap in white.


Prendas Lisboa Waterproof Orange Cap

Many think that cycling caps are only for the Summer, but we beg to differ - and our Lisboa cap is evidence of that. Using a lightweight dual-membrane fabric, this orange windproof and waterproof cap is ideal for difficult conditions. thanks to the properties of the Lisboa fabric that repels water keeping you dry. With a reflective logo pattern across the side panelling, this cap is also great in poor conditions, and comes in plenty of other colours!


Clément Tubulars Retro Cotton Cycling Cap

If you started cycling in the 1980s, the name Clément will be familiar to you as their silk Criterium Seta and Seta Extra tyres were the choice of many amateur and professional riders for their very best wheels - often with a super low spoke count to save even more weight. This cap is returning to our bestsellers for 2023 having featured back in 2020, and with these striking colours and classic branding we can certainly see why. You'll have to be quick to pick up yours though, as we only have a few left!

La Vie Claire Retro White Cycling Cap 

La Vie Claire Retro White Cycling Cap

The La Vie Claire team cap is a firm favourite amongst cycling enthusiasts, particularly those who were fans of Greg LeMond! Their team colours were based on the iconic artwork of Piet Mondrian, giving them a unique appearance in the peloton during the 80s. This cap was much requested and we've always got plenty in stock to keep up with demand!
