On account of lacking an invite onto a Blue Origin or SpaceX flight (can't say I'm keen for a space-bound vacation with the Billionaire Boys Club either, to be honest), I can't really comment on what a cycle around the moon would look or feel like – but imagination says it'd be quite the experience.
Though we're a long way away from knowing what that would be like, MAAP's latest collaborative collection gives us a glimpse into an intergalactic cycling future. Seriously.
Once again, linking up with Perks and Mini (or P.A.M.), the cycling gear expert filters its functional apparel through a psychedelic visual language and free-wheeling aesthetic for a technical collection, unlike any other on-bike style you've seen before.
Informed by adventures beyond Earth and inspired by the transient nature of a desert sunrise and the unearthly atmosphere of the landscape by night, the collection is brought to life through a series of cracked graphics, trippy typography, and high-contrast color schemes.
As is the standard for MAAP, quality is key, ensuring that jerseys are crafted in premium Italian fabrics while cargo bibs are storage-heavy and abrasion-resistant. Reflective pieces are accounted for across jackets and tees, while Polartec offers some cozy warmth to fleeced hoodies.
Alongside the apparel lines, you'll find plenty of accessories, including a cap, gloves, neck and arm warmers, socks, and a water bottle. If that still isn't enough, the collection includes an exclusive zine celebrating cycling’s renegade spirit with photographs by Sarah Pannell and art direction by Misha Hollenbach.
