Maglia Nera

Last man standing.

The Maglia Nera is a jersey from a time period in cycling we've always loved. Awarded at the Giro d'Italia from 1946-1951, the Maglia Nera was given to the last placed rider on general classification. 

Similar to the Tour’s Lanterne Rouge but with a distinctly Italian flair, this race within a race saw riders competing to see who could waste the most time while still finishing within the time constraint. Coffee breaks, hiding behind hedges and self-inflicted punctures – all combined wit the Herculean effort of actually still finishing the race – are what make us love the Maglia Nera.

 


This handmade cycling cap is made from a lightweight and breathable 100% cotton fabric with a 3-panel design for a flat, rounded fit underneath the helmet. The exterior body is a soft black cotton with a bright pink brim top and bottom and screen printed graphics. It features a flexible, machine washable plastic brim and the inside is finished with a black 1.25" elasticated terry cloth sweatband to keep the sweat out of your eyes and the cap comfortably on your head. 

 

One size fits most.

Machine wash cold, hang dry.
