Made from a lightweight breathable polyester mesh, which is known for its durability and quick-drying properties, the Sportful Giara Cap is thin enough to easily slip beneath a helmet.
The one size cap fitted my small head well, without any excess fabric, or uncomfortable pressure points, even when teamed with sunglasses. However I did find the 9cm peak long, especially when riding uphill, and so I tended to have the peak flipped up the majority of the time.
The Sportful Giara Cap is breathable enough for warm rides and helped to kept the sun out of my eyes, but it was just as good as keeping the tips of my ears warm on chilly morning rides and helping to keep the rain out of my eyes too. All in all, then, this cap makes an ideal piece of transitional apparel for Spring and Autumn.
The reflective detailing in a nice touch, and although it coordinates perfectly with the rest of the Sportful Giara range, it would be great addition to any cycling wardrobe for a reasonable £17.
A comfortable breathable and lightweight cap that's good for summer, but with the additional benefit of keeping the tips of ears warm, makes it a perfect spring/autumn transitional piece of kit.
