Behind the Collections
What can you expect from MAAP's collections this season? On this page we'll tell you all about it!
The story behind the brand
he story behind the brand Friends Ollie and Jared started the cycling clothing brand MAAP in 2014. It comes from Melbourne and is mainly produced in Italy. Both founders come from different disciplines and have backgrounds in graphic design, fashion and apparel, but the love for the sport has made them decide to focus fully on MAAP and with success. MAAP is one of the most innovative and influential brands in cycling apparel.
The collections explained
What distinguishes MAAP from other brands is that they drop different collections throughout the season. Where the most apparel brands work with an SS (spring/summer) and AW (autumn/winter) collection and then release a lot at once, MAAP divides this into smaller batches during the season. As a result, they release a new collection almost every month. On this page we explain the different collections.
The Pro Jersey Collection
This collection is inspired by MAAP's very popular Worlds Jersey line, one of their biggest successes ever. Because MAAP likes to keep developing, they come up with the new version: the Emblem Pro Hex Jersey. The colors combine very nicely with the contrasting stripes on the shirt.
The jersey has a different fabric on each panel so that the front is aerodynamic and the back and sides nice and airy. The sleeves are made of a special fabric that resembles a honeycomb structure. As far as we are concerned, one of the most beautiful Maap cycling jerseys and very successful! This product is made from mostly recycled materials.
The Stealth Race Collection
The Stealth Race Fit Jersey Black is the most aerodynamic and tight race fit product MAAP has ever made.
This collection is developed for racing or high-intensity training. The Race Fit jersey is made from mesh and micro-perforated recycled fabrics for an ultralight, highly breathable and sweat wicking jersey, finished with a bonded sleeve hem to help you stay focused on winning, they won't see it coming.
The Evade Collection
In addition to the Pro and the Race, MAAP released another line this spring: The Evade Collection. The line consists of shirts with a good race fit as you are used to from MAAP: tight, aero and very stylish.
The fabric used by MAAP for this collection is dyed and not printed as in the other collections. This gives the jersey a wonderful feeling on the skin and the product is even more durable than the other shirts they produce.
Do you like a high-quality cycling jersey with a clean look? Then this is really something for you!
Besides the short sleeve version is the Evade Jersey and also with extended sleeves. This is a perfect product for early morning rides or chilly days on the bike. The great thing about this jersey is that the main fabric is just as thick as the short sleeve, only with an extended sleeve. Super stylish product available in various colors.
