MAAP has updated its Alt_Road gravel collection in time for the Northern hemisphere’s wetter months. The new drop features some updated colors, some returning products, and a new Lightweight Anorak.

The Alt_Road gravel biking clothing range still includes all of MAAP’s best gravel bike clothing such as the Alt_Road Cargo bibshorts, jerseys, and T-shirts which come in new color options. There is also a range of complementary accessories such as socks, gloves, legionnaires cap, bottles, and arm warmers.

If the Alt_Road Thermal Vest or Thermal Jacket doesn't tick your boxes, MAAP has released a new Lightweight Anorak. The pull-over anorak is made from Drytex shell fabrication which is DWR treated and has a 10k waterproof rating. Fit is said to be generous in order to fit over multiple layers, as well as working when you’re off the bike. The hood has been designed to fit over a helmet, plus there's an adjustable hem and reflective hood cinches. There's a shallow front chest pocket with a velcro closure and two hand pockets.

MAAP's merino Alt_Road Jersey makes a return to the range as well. Merino is the perfect material for keeping you warm in changeable weather thanks to its natural insulating properties, even when wet. MAAP uses its proprietary Naturalmatch tech which the manufacturer claims combines the properties of merino with the resilient performance properties of synthetics.
