Established in 2014, MAAP cycling apparel, a company that proclaims the merging of aesthetics and performance, has released The New Season Road Collection. It’s MAAP’s first road cycling collection of 2023 (implying there is more to come?), saying that it is their most comprehensive road collection yet.
The New Season Road Collection is focused on the pursuit of progression, saying that it’s about “going beyond performance goals the pursuit of progression is also about a wider desire to do better; for ourselves, the people around us, and our planet”.
Well, with those goals in mind, this new season of their road clothing features more recycled fabric content than ever before. MAAP says that this was a small but important step towards sustainability which MAAP says guides them every day.
“We believe that progression itself is the ambition, a continual exercise in innovation and betterment”, said Oliver Cousins, co-founder of MAAP. “For example, our transition from virgin to Sustainably Preferred Materials (SPM) is not in itself the end goal, but an important progression towards greater positive impact with the planet we all share”.
New Evade Jersey
The Evade Jersey is one of MAAP’s most popular with riders. The New Evade, available in both long and short-sleeve silhouettes, is now made with Sustainably Preferred Materials (SPM) using over 70% Italian-made recycled nylon in the primary body. This adds a strong push towards reducing environmental impact.
Adding to the new materials, the Evade and Evolve jerseys start the season in new colorways. The Evade line will also re-introduce off-bike apparel, including sweats, tees, hoodies, beanies, and caps, all of which are all-gender and will any off-bike pursuits.
Women’s Short Team Bib Evo
Also new for this season, is the Women’s Short Team Bib Evo. This is an ergonomically designed, female-specific cut, updated bib that features a new style and has a 5cm shorter leg length. It dons a silicone-patterned leg band and a high-cut mesh waist. All of this alongside the same breathable and moisture-wicking materials riders have come to expect for Team Bib Evo.

The Sphere Pro Hex Jersey 2.0 will feature an exclusive MAAP hex-tech sleeve for aero Optimization with breathable micro-perforated fabric on the back and side panels. It’ll have an upgraded bonded front hem, and larger pockets using anti-sag material, and UPF 50+ sun protection.
