Caring for your cycling gear properly will extend its life and maintain its performance, fit and quality. It’s important to consider these instructions carefully. While we stand behind the quality of our apparel, not adhering to these instructions will void our warranty against manufacturing & defects.
We strongly recommend washing your new gear before wearing it. You’ll find that your apparel will soften, and fit & comfort will improve after washing - especially with bibs & shorts.
Machine wash cool, 86°F (30°C) with like colors: Cooler temps maintain better longevity for your apparel. Like colors, especially lights, will remain more vibrant when washed with like colors.
Use mild detergent. Do not bleach or dry clean: Strong detergents & bleach can break down the fibers and elastane in the garment, dramatically reducing its life.
Close all fastenings: this goes also for other garments mixed in with your cycling apparel. Velcro closures or clasps can catch on stitching or trim and damage your garments.
Lay flat to dry. Do not tumble dry: Do not put your cycling apparel in the dryer. Even on low heat. Don’t do it. Heat can damage fabric, elastic and heat transfer logos very easily. Lycra (Elastane) is used throughout our garments to provide compression and support and is susceptible to damage from heat and can irreparably damage your apparel.
This hat has quickly become "the" winter cycling cap for me. I was a little hesitant about this purchase given my history of cycling caps not quite being "right." You know, the cap doesn't quite cover the ears (so annoying in a winter cap), the flaps over the ears do just that... flap, or the hat seems made for a child and/or a giant but not a person with a fairly normal sized head. This cap solves all those issues. The brim is the perfect size for protecting the eyes from snow, wind, or rain while not obscuring your vision in the drops. It's also a soft-ish brim that won't get bent out of shape if you throw it in a bag with other gear. I've worn it in the 20s (f) and low 30s so far. My gut is that it'd work in the teens as well (but I do run warm).
