We live in a custom world. Custom frames of steel, Ti and carbon, hand built wheels with custom decals, custom kits, custom nutrition blends, custom training programs and all of it at a custom price. What to do if you’re craving custom, but you roll with more of an E-bay budget? Check out Walz Caps new Build-a-Cap program.
Walz Caps has carved out a niche making beautiful cycling caps with a vintage look. They manage to capture a ‘newsie’ American flair, setting them apart from their European brethren, yet instantly recognizable as cycling caps. Walz makes its caps with cotton, wool and technical fabrics and in three or four panel designs.
Now, for $40, with the Walz Build-a-Cap program you can get a one-off, custom Walz three panel cap that will get as much notice at the coffee shop after your ride as your buddy’s Pegoretti. All three panels, the center stripe, the bill and even the threads can be customized from 18colors. Two lines of embroidery are also included in the price. Choose wisely. You’ll also get the cap a lot quicker than your buddy that ordered a custom Richard Sachs – in about a week. The ‘Peloton Service Course’ Walz Cap is already on its way.
