Castelli Podio Cap
Have you ever watched a major professional bike race through to the podium ceremony? The winning rider (and the next two) gets to hit the podium rocking team kit and perhaps get an oversized yellow, pink, polka dot, etc., jersey zipped onto them, handed a trophy of a huge piece of pave, or perhaps get covered with a giant wreath of flowers. Usually these presentations are fairly soon after race finish and the exhausted triumphant rider is generally still sweating, flushed from the endorphin rush, all while the body just wants to curl up and pass out. Teams love the riders to represent colors and sponsors, as well as cover tousled helmet hair, so they give the riders baseball style hat, usually a wool or synthetic cap emblazoned with logos. Ever sit there thinking: that must feel hot?
Castelli has an answer for these winners and beleaguered team riders. Their Podio Cap is a trucker style hat with a solid front panel and mesh covering the rest of the head. Ahhhhh. That feels better. A little airflow, some heat release, Cali-style. This one-size fits all version has the Castelli scorpion logo embroidered on the front, and has an adjustable fit. Being an Italian company with a race pedigree, Castelli informs us that the Podio tips the scales at just 40 grams, so you can keep cool while covered without further stressing the fatigued muscles of the neck and upper back. Grazie, Castelli, and applause to il campione!
