Skull cap; caps not hats

A re-work of our first edition Skull Print Cycling cap.

Reminisce over those halcyon days when you first discovered Paria and their skua print logo,  and thought “shit those boys are good”

100% polyester means you can wash it, and it will stretch to fit your big heed.

Sublimated skull print design means it won’t lose it’s sharp looks (unlike us)

Paria has always been a big support of cycling caps. Whether this be the traditional cotton screen printed cycling cap, or the newer kid on the block in the form of the sublimated cycling cap, we have always felt they provide an excellent addition to your outfit as cycling accessory when you are out on your bike.

Originally retro cotton cycling caps were used for practical means, where La Casquette, the humble cycling cap, a simple invention was designed to serve a practical purpose. For years cycling caps provided a bit of cool in the summer, and a degree of warmth in winter.

The peak of the cycling cap was to provide shade from the glare of the sun when out on the bike, or shield the cyclist’s eyes from the rain or snow.
Back in the day, the legendary Barry Hoban said cycling caps were worn peak to the rear of the head, so you were more aerodynamic. Casquettes were practical items which served a practical purpose, the branding and style was secondary when cycling helmets weren’t even a consideration.

More recently as cycling helmets have become adopted and now seen as essential pieces of cycling kit and not just an accessory (and rightly so), the cycling cap still has managed to retain it’s relevance to cycling and cyclists. There has been a resurgence in popularity with cycling caps, as they gain cult status from brands such as Cinelli and at events such as Red hook Crit

At PARIA, we strive to work with artists and designers who are not necessarily native to the cycling design world, but understand the PARIAvibe. Paria is all about taking your riding seriously, but not yourself; push against the elitism within the sport and disrupt the road. We aim to take influences from outside the standard sphere of cycling kit design, and give them a spin on our cycling jerseys, cycling bib shorts, cycling jackets and cycling accessories. This ensures you stand out on the bike for all the right reasons, and should feel as comfortable on your velo as you do off. We want you to be able to finish your ride, no matter how long and feel like you could walk into a cafe and bar, order your post ride coffee or beer, and feel fine sat there in your cycling gear.

We collaborate with designers around the globe to showcase raw talent and deliver cycling fashion and designs which are unique. Paria supports the underdog and likes everyone to get a fair crack of the whip. If you fancy giving it a go, get in touch (wagwanATparia.cc). We always love to hear people’s ideas, no matter how random, and where it is possible to take our design direction. Clearly we have a view, and have a brand to run, so we can’t promise anything, but we are always willing to hear you out and look at your work. We embrace pay it forward, and pride ourselves on not being dicks; what goes around comes around has always stood us in good stead, and we want to generate, nurture and showcase talent where we can. Ride hard.
