One of our fave cycling cap makers, TiC has just launched some new ones. I can vouch for the Blood, Sweat and Gear cap, you can see our review here. Not only have they launched new caps but have some very nice looking socks about to come out too.
Panache plume (£24.50)
In cycling terms if someone rides with panache they demonstrate the courage to attack, usually against the odds of success. Historically a panache was a plume of feathers placed on a headdress. During Medieval times knights would wear a plume in their helmets to enable recognition during battle. King Henry IV of France was famed for wearing a white plume in his helmet and for his war cry: “Ralliez-vous ? mon panache blanc!” (follow my white plume).
This cap has a specially designed tic plume graphic on the side and under peak. ‘Confortare’ (Latin for: courage/ be strong) is printed on the upper peak. The cap is available in four highlight fabrics. As you would expect all materials used are of the highest quality and the cap is handmade and designed by us in Cambridge. This cap is designed to fit under a helmet.
2015 Blood, sweat & gears range (£23)
The new range has had a minor tweak to the shape to make the already comfortable cap fit even better. The new revised design comes in a range of new colour combinations and of course we have kept the true favourites that have been so popular since the original launch. It is fair to say that already the Blood, sweat and gears cycling cap is establishing itself as a future classic.
Performance sock range (launching around end of May)
We are also pleased to announce that we will soon be adding a range of super technical, super stylish cycling socks to the tic product range. The socks are made from Meryl Skinlife® which is a high performance yarn. The tic socks are designed with a 15cm cuff, making them an essential piece of kit for those people wanting a performance sock with peloton style. More details will follow over the next few weeks.
