MAAP teams up with 100% on another limited edition pair of Hypercraft sunglasses
This time around it’s three more seasonal colors of the Hypercraft, an ultralight model that the two brands had previously collaborated on.
“Our fourth collaboration with 100% brings a new lifestyle focused color palette to their most technically advanced Hypercraft sunglasses,” said Misha Glisovic, MAAP’s creative director and CCO.
The three colors, “forest green,” “deep purple,” and “bone,” have been chosen to complement a wide variety of MAAP’s apparel, which is heavy on earth tones and simple color palettes.
The Hypercraft shades weigh just 23 grams and come with the usual high performance features from 100%, including coatings to repel water, sweat, grime, and other road debris, as well as grippy temple arms and nose pieces. They’re available from maap.cc and 100percent.com.
Team DSM renews contract with Scott bikes
The WorldTour level squad announced a two-year extension with the brand Monday for frames for both its men’s and women’s teams. The development level team will also ride Scott.
Both the Foil RC aero bike and Plasma time trial bike will be at the team’s disposal.
The deal extends to components like seatposts, handlebars, and stems through Scott’s Syncros brand. Syncros is also expanding its support of the team by providing saddles starting this season.
Shimano provides the components and wheels for the rest of the bike.
TIME pedals return to men’s WorldTour with Trek-Segafredo
TIME announced the multi-year deal Tuesday to supply pedals to both the men’s and women’s WorldTour teams. The women’s team will be the third in the Women’s WorldTour on TIME pedals.
“TIME is proud to support this first-class WorldTour team for the coming seasons,” said said Benjamin Marinier, TIME Pedals product manager. “It’s a huge step for us to return to the biggest races with Trek-Segafredo.”
SRAM acquired TIME about two years ago, and Trek-Segafredo was one of a handful of teams racing at the top level with the brand’s components, making it an unsurprising team to reintroduce the pedals into the men’s WorldTour. Teams often ride the pedals either made by another team sponsor, say Shimano pedals for a team using Shimano groupsets, or a brand owned by another major team sponsor, like Wahoo-owned Speedplay for teams backed by the cycling computer and training device company.
The team will ride TIME XPRO pedals, a road model that features a large platform and a low stack height. There are three models available in this line, though the team will most likely be riding the top-end carbon and titanium XPRO 15 which retails for $528.
