MAAP

CONTOUR JERSEY, TEAM BIB SHORTS, M.A VEST

Clean. Understated and timeless. Fantastic bibs. MAAP is a solid player in the kit space.

We’ve been using the MAAP kit for a few months now. The more we wear it the more we like it. It has quickly become a go to kit from a comfort, quality and style perspective. Yes it’s expensive, but the performance and ‘look’ are both there.

BLACK SHEEP CYCLING

LIMITED KIT AND ESSENTIALS WIND VEST

A relative newcomer to Australia, we’ve been blown away by the performance offered by Sommerville Sports. At a mid-level price point, they are simply driven by making a comfortable kit. Sommerville are a little different in that their offering is aimed toward custom kits, but they do have an off the shelf design available in limited numbers.
