Pedal with Pride: Headdy x Gay's Okay Collab

Cycling is a global community that should welcome riders of all stripes. (The UCI even has their own version of rainbow stripes for this reason.) In this spirit, Italian cap creator Headdy teamed up with Gay's Okay Cycling to reinvent the iconic Brooklyn cap. Gay's Okay Cycling is a cycling apparel brand with a big, positive, empowering message: that our cycling community welcomes those of all sexual and gender identities. It is with pride that we donate $3 of every cap sold to a range of LGBTQ+ organizations and cycling events that promote full inclusion.

About the Cap

This new cap puts pride front and center. Replacing the racing stripes of the original cap, the pride cap pops with the bright colors of LGBTQ+ flags. The colored stripes even continue under the bill.

This cap is the Headdy T8 model. Made in Italy with 100% Polyester and printed graphics. Elastic in center-back, sizing is one size fits most adult heads between 58-61cm or 23-24 inches in circumference.

Background

The Brooklyn Cycling Cap official reissue celebrates the most iconic cycling cap of the history, designed in 1973 for the Brooklyn Cycling Team, the best team of his decade. Brooklyn was an Italian professional cycling team that existed from 1973 to 1977 featured riders such as Roger De Vlaeminck, who won Paris–Roubaix four times. The team was sponsored by Italy’s Brooklyn Chewing Gum and Gios Bicycle, famous for the blue color of the frames.
