Performance through design: MAAP launches new Pro Bib 2.0

MAAP has launched the new Pro Bib 2.0, its ‘most technologically advanced bib short to date’.

Crafted with a lightweight 3D aero structured finish to deliver a firm compressive fit, the Pro Bib 2.0 is constructed with reshaped ergonomic panels, contoured to move and flow with a body in motion. Raw cut knitted fabric minimises pressure and maximises comfort while all critical seams have been flatlock stitched to prevent abrasion.

The bib shorts feature the signature ergonomically engineered thermo moulded chamois and an antimicrobial microfibre top liner with laser-cut perforations for breathability. UPF50+ provides UV protection for long days in the saddle, paired with reflective branding to ensure visibility.

“We’ve invested heavily in R&D for Pro Bib 2.0,” said Jarrad Lory Smith, MAAP co-founder. “Your bib shorts are the foundation of your kit. If you’re not comfortable, you’re going to struggle on the bike.

“We’ve elevated the technical functions in these bib shorts with supportive compression that will aid with blood flow and recovery – two very important benefits for cyclists, no matter which level of performance you’re at.”
