!FiFO Cycle makes high quality cycling caps and accessories unlike any on the market. Think a cycling cap is just a keepsake from your favorite bike race? Think again. One look at the fabrics, colours and tailoring and you will rethink your headgear. !FiFO Cycle founder, Fiona Ryan moved from Ireland to Brooklyn in 2004 and after making herself a cycling cap from an old pair of pants she suddenly found herself working nights in her appartment making caps for friends and colleagues. Realising that the fit and comfort of cycling caps in bike stores was under-par she carved out a small market making alternative caps in high-quality sustainable fabrics in carefully chosen colours. Adjusting the shape over and over, Fiona redesigned the classic cycling cap and created a better-fitting, longer-lasting cap which is fully reversible and washable with memory foam in the visor. !Today FiFO Cycle is a growing small business making a full range of caps and accessories for those who ride, with a particular emphasis on travel and life on the road. They support individual makers and family businesses from Brooklyn to Bogotá and select local materials for each piece. !FiFO now designs and produces in small batch for cycling teams and races, bike cafés and museums. They have been working with the Red Hook Criterium since 2010 producing caps and accessories and designing for the Red Hook Crit brand. They have also designed caps for Cinelli and The Brooklyn Museum. !In 2017 FiFO Cycle embarks on their first apparel line for women who ride and travel. The line is inspired by life on the go and will grow to include everything essential for comfort on the road, whether trekking, hopping trains, touring, training or just relaxing with friends.
