Known for its stylish cycling apparel for roadies, gravel grinders and mountain bikers alike, MAAP has launched a new collection called MTA (MAAP Transit Apparel) that’s aimed squarely at the urban cyclist, comprising a range of unisex garments that include jackets, shorts, pants, shirts, tee shirts, hoodies and even a beanie for times both on and off of the bike.
“The MAAP Transit Apparel collection was made by cyclists for cyclists. This collection is crafted from materials that are breathable, highly sweat wicking and antimicrobial. We’ve partnered with innovative product performance specialists like Primaloft, Polartec and Drirelease on new fabrics to remove the guesswork from commuting, empowering riders to get from home to work and everywhere in between with confidence in their clothing choice”, said Darren Tabone, VP Product at MAAP.
“Four-way stretch provides a full range of movement with no adjustments necessary, while reflective details provide extra visibility for city riding. Lightweight, waterproof, windproof and DWR fabrications provide the ultimate warmth to weight ratio when the weather turns, while the Roam Jacket’s new Cohaesive hood adjuster system keeps the rain at bay whilst preserving visibility with the press of a button, or two,” adds Tabone.
Above and beyond providing core urban cyclists with the requisite togs they need to combat the rigors of daily commuting, the goal of the boutique Australian brand is also to get more people to traverse the cityscape via two wheels rather than four.
“By swapping vehicle transportation for cycling, we can collectively take a conscious step towards an environmentally sustainable future that is also friendly on the budget. According to the non-profit Adventure Cycling Association, a moderate increase in cycling, even for short trips, could reduce between 6 and 14 million tons of CO2 from reaching the atmosphere and 2.6 to 6 billion liters of fuel annually (1). So it’s no surprise to see more environmentally conscious cyclists making the choice to commute daily,” says MAAP.
The MTA Collection consists of the following pieces, which you can purchase directly at MAAP.cc
