Supporter Caps

The supporter caps are back in stock and now available in black or white and in two sizes.

To get your hands on one visit the prendas.co.uk shop.

What you see is what you get, these are cotton caps made in Italy and for sale with British shop Prendas Ciclismo. The price is £7.50 (about $12 / €10) plus postage which depends on the destination.

They’re long term supporters and friends of the site. As part of their business they get caps made in Italy and offered to help produce an Inner Ring one. They’ve also got the e-commerce worked out from payments to postage. This is the second batch after the first lot sold out within hours.


Cap in hand donation
If you’re not a collector of caps buying one (or more) will still help keep this site on the road as the sales revenue is split between Prendas and me. A big thanks to everyone who has bought one already, it turns the typing into something more real.

    Caps are selling well, now how about some jerseys?

    • Anonymous Friday, 10 October 2014, 7:40 am

      Yes, good plan. Tastefully based tribute to the Peugeot shirt, perhaps?. Don’t be shy!

  • Tom Thursday, 9 October 2014, 10:11 pm

    Pleasure to deal wit prendas,and happy to support my ‘go to’ cycling site. Now waiting for the jersey 🙂

  • Tommy Thursday, 9 October 2014, 10:18 pm

  • Anonymous Thursday, 9 October 2014, 10:28 pm

    Selling like hot cakes again I gather. Got mine.

  • Alan T Thursday, 9 October 2014, 10:31 pm

    Just ordered one

  • Dave Thursday, 9 October 2014, 11:57 pm

    The large black ones appear to have sold out (no longer showing as an option). Luckily I bought mine earlier.

  • Anonymous Friday, 10 October 2014, 12:28 am

    Fortunately the large white ones are still available, or were when I ordered.

  • Mark Friday, 10 October 2014, 12:45 am

    Got the stock notification yesterday arvo (Australian time). Ordered four on the basis of the larger head size.

  • John Liu Friday, 10 October 2014, 2:41 am

    I actually think the Inner Ring logo would look pretty sweet on some shorts. Black shorts. Unless you’re WC.

  • Gary Friday, 10 October 2014, 3:02 am

    Super thanks for the blog. I ordered a white cap just to help support the incredible daily information. This blog stands above nearly all others!

  • Dean Friday, 10 October 2014, 3:16 am

    Super cool caps! I ordered 4, 2 black and 2 white! Thanks Inner Ring, I really enjoy reading your posts.

  • BC Friday, 10 October 2014, 6:50 am

    Two more ordered, to support in a small way your excellent blog.

  • mtbxcjan Friday, 10 October 2014, 10:00 am

    The regular size is too small for me as well and Prendas didn´t want to swap them so I am giving them away for free (2 black ones, one new and one used on 2 rides). You can pick them up in Berlin, Germany or I´ll send them as long as you pay the postage. Write to team(at)berlin-grunewald.com.

    • Prendas Ciclismo Friday, 10 October 2014, 11:25 am


      As I have previously explained to you via email, then twitter and now via this blog.

      We cannot exchange ANY item that has been used. Additionally the items you refer to are 3 months old and outside of our returns window.

      I am sorry that you feel so aggrieved that you have to go to such length to bad mouth us, perhaps you are just having a bad day!

      Anyway, for others would have not used us before and are unsure of our approach to customer service, take a look at this independent testimonials website that email every customer after their purchase.




      • Bossanove Friday, 10 October 2014, 3:12 pm

        Woah, easy there, didn’t read to me like he was bad mouthing Prendas.

        Just said that you didn’t want to exhange them (you don’t!) and that he is willing to give them to a happy home. Comments round here are pretty nice and friendly on the whole, no need to get defensive (though I understand it’s your business).

      • mtbxcjan Friday, 10 October 2014, 3:27 pm

        I couldnt use them and didn´t want to throw them away – thats all. Your return policy and position seems a bit strange to me considering that the regular size is too small for so many people.

        My caps are now already on the way to another reader – end of story for me.

        • Anoldfan Saturday, 11 October 2014, 10:08 am

          It is hard to keep all the people happy all the time. The joys of business.

  • Tommy B Friday, 10 October 2014, 10:05 am

    Got mine in the ‘big dome’ size…only white left so black is on on my wish list for when they get restocked again 🙂

  • Dave Friday, 10 October 2014, 10:26 am

    Seems to be an incredible number of people here requiring the large size….it’s obviously the blog where the brainy folk hang out 🙂

  • shadow Friday, 10 October 2014, 10:46 am

    Mine has just arrived in the mail. (Missed the first batch as was away on holiday climbing a little hill near Bedoin).
    Thank you inrng and Prendas.

  • Ian Friday, 10 October 2014, 11:06 am

    I love this idea and have been waiting for the large to come out and they’ve already sold out within a day so I’ve missed out. Of course on the one hand that’s great as the cash will help keep this great blog going, on the other I was looking forward to the cap to wear on these autumnal UK days.

  • Alex222 Friday, 10 October 2014, 11:38 am

    Glad I got in early, obviously selling like hot cakes

  • Higgins Friday, 10 October 2014, 12:11 pm

    Ordered, normal size black is still showing in stock. This is the best cycling blog bar none, and I am proud to wear something that identifies me as a reader.

  • Gary K Friday, 10 October 2014, 12:36 pm

    My head usually fits into caps ok so hopefully the regular will be fine. Can’t wait to get home and try it on. Prendas excellent as always. I’d prefer inrng bidons to jerseys though, keep it subtle.

  • Oliver Friday, 10 October 2014, 12:44 pm

    Thanks for making a large one, but why such small batches!? I missed my chance again… Shouldn’t have the success of the first batch warranted the making of another larger one? How long till the next one?

    • The Inner Ring Friday, 10 October 2014, 12:48 pm

      I gather the second batch is bigger.

      Apologies to anyone frustrated by the speed these have sold out… but thanks to everyone who has sprinted to get one of these.

    • Prendas Ciclismo Friday, 10 October 2014, 1:31 pm

      Hi Oliver

      I’m sorry you missed out, however the way we released the stock availability was very fair.

      We emailed *everybody* who signed up for the stock notification first. We even sent this email off in the middle of (our) night as many of the readers of the blog in AUS and NZ missed out first time.

      We then announced the arrival on Twitter 24 hours later. Then INRNG wrote a short blog about the arrival a bit later on.

      We have NEVER sold a “Large” size cap – so we had no real idea of the number we should have ordered. So we thought of what we considered to be reasonable and then doubled it!

      We will re-order the larger size, and if you wish you can sign up for a stock notification email on our website so that you can be of the first to hear of the newer, bigger delivery.


      I hope that helps explain it all.


      • Oliver Friday, 10 October 2014, 2:48 pm

        Thanks Andy! I will put myself on the waiting list (again).
        I know you did all that you mention above in a fair fashion, the quibble is about the size of the order — I don’t have the time — alas — to drop what I am doing to order a cap most days at work, though sometimes I do…
        I guess the question is when will the new batch be available?
        I pledge to buy two (2) large one if I can next time! Thanks again Andy,

      • Paul Jakma Friday, 10 October 2014, 10:43 pm

        Bought a regular white along with 3 other classic caps. The inrng cap definitely is a tighter fit than the 3 others.

        • Paul Jakma Saturday, 11 October 2014, 10:28 am

          Oh,they’re lovely caps! Very pleased! 🙂

  • Andrew Weeks Friday, 10 October 2014, 1:03 pm

    Fantastic the wait is over.

  • Andrew M Friday, 10 October 2014, 1:12 pm

    Thanks INRNG for a great cycling blog…and caps

  • andrew Friday, 10 October 2014, 1:45 pm

    Mine just arrived. Fits well. I look rather dashing!

  • Tovarishch Friday, 10 October 2014, 1:52 pm

    I’ll probably make it in time for the 10th edition!

  • Spatz Friday, 10 October 2014, 7:12 pm

    Mine arrived this today let’s hope it rains tomorrow morning

  • Will Friday, 10 October 2014, 8:14 pm

    Mine arrived today having been ordered yesterday morning. Cracking service, fits just lovely and looks the part, but most importantly an easy way to say thank you for what is my first port of call for all my cycling news and opinion. Keep up the good work (and thanks Prendas for the cap!).

  • roomservicetaco Friday, 10 October 2014, 8:54 pm

    Third time a charm…missed 2 prior runs but got an order in this time for regular white. About $16 total for cap + shipping to US for reference. Looking forward to getting it. Thanks inrng and thanks Prenda.

  • Amy Friday, 10 October 2014, 10:14 pm

    Wow, amazing service and super-fast delivery. I’ve never ordered from Prendas before but definitely will again. Thanks to all concerned!

  • @De_Raff Saturday, 11 October 2014, 11:45 am

    Ordered Friday midafternoon, delivered to Glasgow this morning.

    Fast service and a great product.

    A bit like this blog…

  • Stoneglider Saturday, 11 October 2014, 12:06 pm

    A good indicator of the ‘reach’ of this site, they are oos for large! He who hesitares is without a cycling cap. Re-ordered, ho-hum.

  • TR Saturday, 11 October 2014, 12:32 pm

    Just ordered a couple of the regular size – looking forward to the cooler weather and more cap wearing

  • gdcadam Saturday, 11 October 2014, 9:29 pm

    Got mine in the post today, fits perfect, love it!

    Will order black next time as I missed out as well, white is very nice though.

    Kudos to Prendas too, very fast postage and excellent quality.

  • JD Monday, 13 October 2014, 11:03 pm

    Cheers INRNG & Prendas, just arrived today and look great.
    Anyone else found the black is just that little bit smaller than the white one? Or is it all in my head?

  • goldiewilson Wednesday, 15 October 2014, 1:32 pm

    Ordered and received – thankyou very much InnerRing (and Prendas – excellent as ever)

  • The Inner Ring Wednesday, 15 October 2014, 1:34 pm

    A big thanks to everyone who has ordered one.

  • Southernbikeboxhire Wednesday, 15 October 2014, 10:43 pm

    Just ordered mine and looking forward to it …….. a quick moan though (as i am English) I had a torrid time on the website when choosing to pay by paypal, at first i thought it was because i am using an iphone but then i used the PC (old firefox browser) and it was still torrid the pages didnt render properly and the form was difficult in its workflow, just a heads up to Prendas who i have used many times before and love the kit so i totally come in peace on the criticism
