Topic - Cycle caps, why the strange shape?

Tony the Blade on 23 Jul 2014

I love the stylish cycling cap, and whenever I see someone wearing one it takes me back to my youth and seeing Eddy Merckz winning numerous cycling events (usually highlighted on Grandstand or World of Sport). I see that they have found a new home, upon the floppy, side parted barnets of the fixie riding hipster. I might even get one myself :-O

So, this got me thinking, why are they that shape?
Is it to wear under a helmet I thought, no as they didn't wear such apparel in the 70's.
To keep the sun out of their eyes? Not really, as the peak seems too small.

So over to you velonistas, tell me why are cycling caps so designed?

Just a bit of light mid-morning musing.
