A great piece of kit with improved breathability, lower weight and great set of features. Comfortable, adjustable and packable this is a great cap for anyone racing or simply looking for top quality lightweight kit.
An evolution of the previous RACE ELITE PEAK, the V2 cap feels lighter and faster in both hot and windy conditions. The mesh allows excess heat from the head escape – perfect for those hot days when you are pushing limits. Easily packable and with a new peak design, this cap is your number-one choice for racing or training. It even has vents that can store sunglasses.
Inov8's Race Elite Peak 2.0 provides more breathability and additional features at less weight than the original version. The perforated fabric across the top makes it much more breathable and it is ideal for warmer conditions and running hard. The softer peak may not be to everyone's liking but it allows the cap to be quickly and easily stashed in a pocket when not needed.
More reflective features are a welcome addition and the small vents at the front can be used for safely storing your sunglasses which is a features I absolutely love. The micro Velcro strap on the back make adjusting it really easy and also means it doesn't stick to all of your kit when it's in your pack. A simple piece of kit that has been improved and is now my outright favourite running cap!
