We wanted to pay tribute to the most unlikely of wins with The Van Daele Edition cap, featuring an abstract interpretation of the cobbles in the national colours of Belgium — the nation so dominant in Paris-Roubaix.
On the 60th anniversary of his Paris-Roubaix win we present The Leon Van Daele Edition, a tribute to one of a long line of Belgian heroes.
The cotton cap is an icon of the cycling world, worn well it elevates the wearer’s panache levels exponentially whilst protecting against the sun’s harsh glare and clouds’ damp drizzle.
In the days before helmets were commonplace in the pro peloton, casquettes would sit proudly on the heads of champions and domestiques alike. These stars of the road knew what it took to look good.
Our cotton caps feature a grosgrain ribbon stripe, capturing that classic look. Peak up, peak down, facing forwards or worn backwards to protect your neck, the cycling cap is the Swiss Army knife of cycling accessories.
Wear it under your helmet or pull it out of your jersey pocket at the café stop to disguise your helmet hair, but always have it with you.
