Imagined with Brooklyn based cap producer Fifo Cycle, the Cinelli Bespoke Cap is a limited edition piece inspired by the Soviet Cycling Team’s victory in the 1988 Seoul Olympic Games; a win achieved on a Cinelli Laser no less.
Both team and bike provide inspiration for the Fifo X, in a games that saw the all-conquering Soviet team take 4 medals on the now iconic Laser bicycle.
Influenced by the Futurismo Italiano movement of the 20th century, the Fifo X uses layered gradients and the illusion of light coming from behind and underneath. The Cinelli logo takes a number of forms around the cap, led by a depiction of the Russian riders in silhouette on the front panel. The reversible underside complements the bold, bright design with a more subtle blue, detailed with cyrillic text taken from a commemorative Cinelli poster produced after the games.
