Despite there being an overwhelming glut of cycling apparel companies out there, it’s refreshing to see that there are still some brands like MAAP that can bestow a sense of sartorial splendor upon something as routine as bibshorts – as evidenced by the boutique label’s latest Team Bib EVO bibshorts.
According to MAAP, the Team Bib EVO features reshaped ergonomic panels that are engineered for “optimal stretch, recovery and shape retention” that have been specifically designed to accommodate the physiques of both men and women cyclists.
“We’ve taken a gender-specific approach to the design process and have tailored the Team Bib Evo with male-specific and female-specific cuts for ease in the saddle,” says MAAP.
Other features that punctuate the bibshorts include MAAP’s new proprietary 3D Thermo Moulded multi-density chamois by Elastic Interface that’s been ergonomically engineered with laser-cut perforations for increased “breathability, balance and support” and reflective logos and back leg tabs for increased visibility in low light conditions.
If that’s not enough, MAAP has also added UPF50+ sun protection, DWR coating for water-resistance, a high airflow back mesh panel, seamless elastic straps, elastic hems with printed silicone grippers and bonded seams for enhanced comfort.
In addition to performance, MAAP has also given attention to the environment, by using only sustainable fabrics like BlueDesign or OEKO-TEX approved.
“BlueDesign and OEKO-TEX certifications ensure that our goods are made from materials that are produced using only chemicals and processes that are safe for people and the environment and that air and water emissions from the manufacturing processes are entirely clean,” says MAAP.
The Team Bib EVO is available in a range of sizes from XS to XXL, along with five colorways for $270.
