Indoor Training Essentials
As cold weather approaches and daylight hours begin to decline, finding time to get out to ride can become difficult. For those who are not inclined to set out in the cold winter weather, many begin to shift to indoor riding. Indoor trainers allow cyclists to continue their training through the winter season from the warmth and convenience of your home, no matter the time of day or weather conditions outside.
Tacx Rollable Trainer Mat not only protects your floors against scratches and sweat, but also muffles noise and vibrations, which is especially important if you’re riding in shared spaces such as apartments or condos. A training mat goes between the floor and your trainer, directly underneath your trainer. Don’t overlook the importance of using a training mat during your indoor training sessions.
The MAAP Training Towel is moisture wicking and quick drying. When you’re taking your training indoors, the MAAP Training Towel helps absorb sweat from your indoor session. One side features a folded end that easily secures over your handle-bars to help eliminate sweat and excess moisture from lying stagnant on your bike, while the other end features a loop that secures around the towel when rolled up.
Skratch Labs Sport Hydration Mix - an electrolyte mix that replaces what you lose when you sweat, allowing you to recover faster and keep riding for longer. Quench your thirst with a hydration mix that contains all natural ingredients, with an optimized glucose and fructose blend that allows for more rapid absorption to replace essentials minerals lost in sweat while you train.
What to Wear:
The MAAP Base Layer combines the latest in the featherweight, breathable, and moisture-wicking fabric innovations with a race-oriented fit that hugs the body so you can stay cool and comfortable while training and racing. The sleeveless design of base layers allow for increased airflow around your body. If you’re someone who gets warm easily, especially while riding indoors, a base layer may be all you need to wear on top while you train inside.
MAAP Training Jersey - if you’re someone who wants to wear more than a thin base layer, throw on a lightweight, breathable training jersey on top. Designed for comfort and durability, the upgraded Training Jersey is styled in a low-profile collar, set-in sleeve and more classic cut offer a slightly relaxed fit. It is constructed from a lightweight, breathable, moisture-wicking fabric. The Training Jersey is everything you need in a jersey and nothing you don’t.
MAAP Team Bib - redefine your performance with the new Team Bib , a bold evolution of MAAP’s most popular bib. The all new 3D Thermo Moulded multi-layer chamois ensures ultimate comfort no matter how long you’re inside training on the bike. With laser cut perforations that provide maximum breathability no matter how warm your training heats up. The Men’s Team Bib features an ergonomically designed, male-specific cut and optimal stretch to move seamlessly from training to racing.

A mid-weight sock featuring dynamic arch support and padded toes for comfort alongside soft mesh fabric on the top and sides for ventilation. The mesh fabrics paired with Q-Skin® technology offer breathability, moisture-wicking qualities, and antimicrobial properties.
