Exploring The Boundaries Of Bikepacking

Collaborations help us introduce new audiences to bikepacking, explore different aspects of our sport and experiment with the latest materials and manufacturing techniques. By partnering with brands that share our vision, we are able to bring innovative products to market that address specific needs or audiences in a way that complements both brands.

MAAP x Apidura: Exploring the Alt Road

The meteoric rise of gravel – and the bikes, clothing and equipment designed for taking a turn off the ordinary – has opened new worlds to adventurous cyclists everywhere. Riders have discovered new freedom to explore, to take alternative roads and mix terrains over a single ride and developed new expectations about what their rides look like and what they need to make the most of them.

Brands like MAAP are catering to these adventure cyclists by adding storage to their cycling gear and finding new ways to layer clothes and prepare for all eventualities. MAAP’s new Alt_Road collection carefully balances the ability to carry more and dress for mixed conditions while not detracting from the enjoyment of shorter, less burdened rides. Read more.

"As problem solvers by our nature, we like to collaborate with people that have the same outlook and bring both new problems and new solutions to the process"

Collaborations

MAAP x Apidura

Inspired by MAAP’s modular approach to gravel clothing in their Alt_Road collection, MAAP x Apidura collaboration packs combine the best features of a full Bikepacking setup into the lightest, most convenient setup possible.

Apidura x Canyon

Canyon’s simple, precise and dynamic approach to bike design has closely mirrored our own design principles. The resulting Apidura x Canyon packs blend elements of our Racing Series and Backcountry Series packs to create durable, lightweight and waterproof packs optimised for riding fast gravel.

Rapha + Apidura

Rapha have built a reputation on creating the best kit, favoured by discerning racing cyclists the world over and were a natural choice to collaborate with to bring bikepacking to a new audience.

Apidura + Bombtrack

Bombtrack share our love of the inclusive side of bikepacking and collaborated with us to help families with children embrace the shared experience of bikepacking – something we like to call Tykepacking.

Apidura + Marin

As the original pioneers of the mountain biking scene, Marin were a natural choice to collaborate with to explore the possibilities of e-bikepacking.

Normalising Bikepacking with Rapha

Rapha bought high quality, technical cycling clothing to the masses and created an inclusive and far-reaching network of cyclists through their cafes and stores in a way that few other brands have been able to match. With a focus on the aspirational side of cycling, Rapha has bought racing panache and the associated pro-quality equipment to average cyclists the world over.

Collaborating with Rapha was an opportunity to introduce this audience to the aspirational side of bikepacking and the highest quality precision-crafted gear available at the time … with some Rapha flair added in for good measure, of course.
