Cycling cap yes or not
Currently, when all of us wear helmets, why should we wear a cap? The cycling cap is not only an aesthetic addition to the cycling style, nevertheless a significant element of the cycling outfit. Caps still protect the head from various weather conditions. Don’t forget about the insects with which a cyclist happens to meet on the road. Sometimes such an insect can fall into the holes in the helmet, and the cap can protect against unwanted bites.
Additionally, the cap stops sweat coming from our head to the eyes. Inside the cap, there’s a sweatband, that gathers all unwanted moisture.

Now there are all sorts, colorful, comic, one-color or with funny inscriptions on the peak. Because in the cap worn under the helmet, one element that you can see is the peak. Most cyclists wear a raised peak, while the peak lowered down also looks interesting.
