Why bother riding a bike on Earth’s terrain when the MAAP and Perks and Mini’s PAAM 2.0 collection gives you the opportunity to take an “Out of This World” ride?
Due to no invitation on a Blue Origin or SpaceX flight (can’t say I want a space vacation with the Billionaire Boys Club either, to be honest), I can’t really comment. what a cycle around the moon would look or feel like – but the imagination says it would be quite an experience.
Although we’re a long way from knowing what that would look like, MAAP’s latest collaborative collection gives us a glimpse of an intergalactic cycling future. Seriously.
Once again, teaming up with Perks and Mini (or PAM), the cycling gear expert filters their functional apparel through a psychedelic visual language and freewheeling aesthetic for a technical collection unlike any other style of bike you’ve seen before.
Informed by adventures beyond Earth and inspired by the transient nature of a desert sunrise and the otherworldly atmosphere of the landscape at night, the collection comes to life through a series of cracked graphics, trippy typography and high contrast color schemes.
As is standard for MAAP, quality is key, ensuring the jerseys are made from premium Italian fabrics while the cargo bibs are heavy to pack down and abrasion resistant. Reflective patches are found on jackets and t-shirts, while Polartec provides cozy warmth in fleece hoodies.
Along with the clothing lines, you’ll find plenty of accessories, including a cap, gloves, neck warmers and arm warmers, socks, and a water bottle. If that’s still not enough, the collection includes an exclusive zine celebrating the renegade spirit of cycling with photography by Sarah Pannell and art direction by Misha Hollenbach.
The complete collection is available online now in limited quantities via MAAP and PAM
