Latest drop sees a new Team Bib Evo Cargo and updated classics in seasonal colours

Melbourne-based cycling apparel brand MAAP has today announced its new season road collection featuring the Team Bib Evo Cargo and a host of updated classics with a call upon riders to get out on their bikes to chase the light for 12-hours during the week of the March Equinox.

To support the launch and mark the upcoming seasonal transition, MAAP will be encouraging riders to ‘Chase The Light’ with a series of rides around the March equinox. As cyclists we plan our lives and rides with a keen awareness of sunrise and sunset. The arrival of the equinox on 20th March marks the time where riders in both the Southern and Northern Hemisphere will experience an equal 12-hours of daylight and night, bringing a natural opportunity to reflect on this relationship and springboard into the season ahead. The days are extending for some and shortening for others, but during this week the global cycling community is in balance.

The new season road collection sees the debut of a much requested update to the Team Bib Evo, MAAP’s best selling and performance-proven signature bib. The new Team Bib Evo Cargo, which for the first time on a MAAP road bib features functional dual-side pockets.

The minimalist pocket design is engineered for maximal performance utility. The dual-side pockets provide optimal stretch, recovery and shape retention; the new design is ideal for loading with extra fuel and other ride essentials for long days in the saddle. The bib short also paires with a MAAP Transit or Lifestyle tee for casual rides.

Available as both a bib short and bib tight the Team Bib Evo Cargo features MAAP’s signature 3D Thermo Moulded multi-density chamois, moisture-wicking, abrasion resistant fabrics and seamless elastic straps matched to a high airflow mesh back panel for ultimate comfort across a range of temperatures.

As with the original Team Bib Evo, all fabrics are Bluesign® approved, meaning they have been manufactured to strict safety and environmental standards, ensuring they minimise impact on people and the planet.

Also being released are a selection of MAAP customer favourites in new, soft earthy hues and classic tones, specifically designed to be matched with both the new range and existing pieces in the MAAP catalogue. Products receiving this updated palette include the iconic ‘Evade 2.0’ range, MAAP’s range of ‘Embark’ merino jerseys, Draft windproof jackets and vests as well as the existing Team Bib Evo and select accessories.
