The Tucker Handmade Leather Cycle Hairnet (includes Cycle Cap)
The Tucker hairnet is for the person who identifies with the technicality AND sartorial attributes of one’s bike, its components and related accessories/fashion.
The hairnet is a key piece worn by the greats of cycling history. It is enormously relevant to today’s urban cyclists because it is a paragon of sporting design excellence and is a treasured key piece to own for cycling aficionados.
The heroes of the 70s and 80s era in particular wore hairnets and cycle caps, they are immortalised in striking black and white photographs wearing these pieces. Today’s cyclists hold them in extremely high regard. To own one is a mark of understanding this world.
Made from beautiful Italian leather and handmade in London.
We have revived and reworked the iconic leather cycle hairnet to be worn with style! It is precursor to the helmet, but it is NOT A SAFETY PRODUCT OR AN ALTERNATIVE TO A HELMET; rather it is a cultural signifier identifying one’s committed love of cycling heritage and, therefore, gives a sense of belonging to the past but in the cutting-edge present. If you are looking for a head protection product, you should spend your hard earned money on a first class helmet. Ride in style and with care!
The Tucker Hairnet is made from beautiful Italian leather and should be loved. We provide you with a cotton care bag for stowage and would advise treating the leather once in a while to ensure it looks its best, and keeps you looking sharp!
