Taking a more subdued approach to styling than the brand’s usual flamboyance, MAAP is showing-off its latest apparel collection called Alt_Road, which is aimed squarely at the gravel and bikepacking segments.
“Following months of testing on gravel, open road, dirt, and through the grit, MAAP have revealed their new Alt_Road collection; showcasing performance products done sustainably for riders who want to take a turn off the ordinary, onto whatever,” says MAAP.
The Australia-based company’s new collection comprises jerseys made with NATURALMATCH wool technology, an exclusive development in partnership with Miti Spa in Bergamo, Italy.
Utilizing the perfect blend of natural and high-performance synthetic fibers, this soft-to-touch, renewable fiber source, extra-fine merino wool provides supreme temperature regulation, taking riders from chilled mornings to searing mid-afternoon heat. Combined with anti-microbial and anti-odor properties, the materials can perform in extreme conditions for multi-day rides even with repeated use.
The functional cargo bib shorts serve as the base for off-road escapes with odor-resistant tees that offer next-to-skin moisture management and 50% Recycled PET fiber content, thermoregulating vests and windproof thermal jackets set against a color palette inspired by nature’s earthy tones, featuring partnerships with Polartec and Apidura, MAAP says its Alt_Road “will take you places you’ve never seen before.”
“Alt_Road is a natural evolution for us as a brand. The days are gone where riders are loyal to one discipline. The product reflects the needs of our athletes and riders around the world, engineered to perform at an elite level, whatever the road surface,” adds Ollie Cousins, MAAP Co-Founder.
The Alt_Road collection is available now via maap.cc or your local MAAP dealer.
