The Tivoli Seamless Collar forms part of Velobici's Paris-Brest-Paris range (or PBP for short). This epic quadrennial brevet from Paris to Brest, on the western shores of Brittany, and back, requires riders to complete the 1200km route in less than 90 hours. Invoking the name of such a prestigious event sets the bar high, and the Tivoli Collar unfortunately fails to live up to this expectation.
The PBP Seamless Cap is part of Velobici's PBP collection. It's a skull-tight beanie made from a Merino-mix material: 42% Merino, 51% polyester Thermo-cool, 4% Nylon and 3% elastane. PBP refers to the Paris-Brest-Paris, of course, and the collection comprises "essential items for the long distance traveller, marrying durability with comfort, practicality and European chic." Though a PBP reference may be over-egging the pudding, there's no doubting that this is a very useful little hat.
In keeping with Velobici's other gear, the Seamless Couche stands out from the crowd due to its understated looks and heavyweight price tag. Often, form comes at the expense of function, but with the Seamless Couche, Velobici have combined them both.
