Imagine, if you can, the problems your non-cycling other half has when it comes to Christmas. Yes they are well aware that you would like Santa to bring them yet another bike, or maybe some of those fan-dabby-dozey carbon wheel things and you keep banging on about electric Di2 something or other. But honestly it’s all a bit of a mystery and they’re how much? So those lovely people at Hackney GT have come up with something a lot more practical that even your nan can get her head around. Step forward the Hackney GT Alpine bobble hat.
Inspired by retro ski jumper designs and designed and manufactured in the UK, the Hackney GT Alpine bobble hat was first produced after the success of their Alpine Winter Jacket. That was the perfect jumper for post Christmas rides. The Alpine Bobble Hat was such a popular item that it sold out in the run up to Christmas.
This year the hat has seen a few changes, it’s now made from 100% merino wool, comes in red or blue and is manufactured in the UK – keep your head warm while lowering your carbon footprint! This is a great little item, keeping you warm while shooting the breeze after your next ‘cross race or winter league, you could even wear it while on non cycling duties – just to remind everyone what you’d rather be doing…
The Hackney Gt Alpine Bobble Hat can only be bought from their website and will set you back £28, with next day delivery in the UK available right up to 23rd December 2015. So if you are after a bit of cycling related head attire you know where to look, or you could leave this page open for your secret Santa to see…
