The only problem with modern cycle helmets is that they allow so much damn air in - fine and indeed very welcome in warmer conditions of course, just not so good when Jack Frost appears at your door demanding you leave the comfort of the home trainer to do some 'real' riding.
Offering a true Gore Windstopper fabric, the Etxeondo Kapelu Cap is designed for this very situation - offering a wind protective environment in a traditional cycling cap design.
Etxeondo have a great reputation for making only the highest quality cycle clothing, designed for the most demanding cyclists, whether they ride the roads or mountain trails. Worn by both Sean Kelly and Miguel Indurain during their respective careers, and made just outside San Sebastian in the heart of the Basque Country, Etxeondo clothing is designed for everyone who strives to be a Giant of the Road.

Peak season headwear
Size comment: "True to size"
You just have to have a cycling cap in the wardrobe, don't you? This is a super-stylish cap that protects your head from windchill, but isn't too hot for summer days. This helps me, as my helmet doesn't have fabric grippers, so I need to wear something to stop the sweat from dripping into my eyes. The fabric stays clean and bright, too, despite many washes. I love my Kapelu. The only problem I've had is that the elastic stitching that makes it fit close to the head snapped after a few months of use. My wife is going to try to find a way of repairing it. Meanwhile, the helmet holds it in place!

If the cap fits
Size comment: "Runs large"
Does what it says on the tin. Vintage style cap, that's made from modern Windstopper material, that fits under your helmet. Ideal for days when it's not too cold - so no risk of ears freezing. Offers 2 advantages over Winstopper skull caps: 1. You can still hear cars etc. 2. Looks cooler. Sizing is generous, typically I'm a large medium or small large for hats/helmets. This has plenty of room, maybe bigger size traps air in that can warm up. Highly recommended.

Etxeondo apparel is sized for a fitted look, but not so much as the Italian brands. Therefore, follow the sizing chart with confidence, but if you do want a little extra room, then feel free to go up a size.
*For an accurate glove size, please measure around your palm, placing it flat and making sure to exclude the thumb (don't chop it off), then compare your measurement to the chart above. If it's a close call, go one size up or down depending on the result.
