Beanies and Hats for Winter

For winter cycling you need a proper hat. That’s the only way to protect your head from the cold. The choice of hats is huge. To make sure you’ll make the right choice, we have some tips for you in the following.

In our online shop, you can find numerous hats and beanies in all common colours, sizes and designs by renowned brands like BUFF, P.A.C. and Jack Wolfskin for women, men and kids.

Hat vs. Beanie – What’s the Difference?

There are classic hats with a pom-pom (bobble hats) and so-called beanies. The term ‘beanie’ originates from the colloquial word bean (in the sense ‘head’). As beanies come in a classic design, they are perfect for everyday use and leisure. For special underhelmet caps see here.

Wool, Fleece... – Which Material Would you Like?

When choosing a proper hat it’s all about the material used. If you are looking for a winter hat that keeps your head warm in everyday life, you should go for a thick knit hat made from warm materials like fleece, polyacrylics or merino wool – optionally available with additional fleece lining. For sporty tours you should make sure the material is also breathable. Therefore, most manufacturers use functional synthetic fibres that ensure quick moisture wicking and best thermoregulation.

Wind- and Waterproof Hats and Beanies

Some winter hats have an integrated membrane sandwiched between the soft inner fabric and the outer layer. This plastic layer has small perforations that prevent rain from penetrating the head. Yet, the perforations are big enough to let water vapour that is produced when sweating during sport activities escape. Thus, the hat is not just a warm accessory, but also offers effective protection from wind and rain.

Proper headwear protects from the cold and give your outfit the finishing touch. Shop for a knitted or functional hat at ROSE Bikes!
