Adidas The Cycling Hijab review - cool and comfy with a few neat features

The stretchy and quick-wicking fabric is great - as are the reflective and glasses loops - could be a bit longer on the chest, though

Cycling Weekly Verdict

The Adidas Hijab makes a great sportswear hijab and I can fully recommend it for women of all ages. It provides a modest, comfortable fit which enables the rider to move freely without the multiple layers and/or pins associated with most women's hijabs. It really enhances the cycling experience - a great success!

Reasons to buy
  • +

    Lightweight, adjustable product

  • +

    Sun peak with reflectors

  • +

    Glasses/sunglasses hooks

  • +

    Moisture wicking material

Reasons to avoid
  • -

    Peak could be a little firmer to avoid the flapping in stronger winds

  • -

    The length of the product could be slightly longer for better coverage of the chest area

The Adidas Cycling Hijab is designed to provide an airier and cooler ride than a traditional hijab. With its versatile design, it can certainly be used in a much wider range of sporting activities than just cycling on its own.

Adidas has been increasing its presence in the cycling sphere over recent years, as well as in more inclusive sportswear - The Cycling Hijab is a happy confluence of the two, but how well does it actually perform in its intended purpose? We put it to the test to find out.
