Launching in two days, these MAAP UNIMATIC watches are an exciting collaboration for the cycling apparel brand. MAAP units with UNIMATIC to launch a timepiece built for a life around bikes. The UNIMATIC X MAAP Modello Quattro UT4-T-M is a made in Italy, modern military-style tool watch that delivers utilitarian function and a shared vision to merge aesthetics and performance.
The Modello Quattro UT4-T-M combines a lightweight grade II sandblasted titanium casing with a 360° antishock protection quartz movement, a first for UNIMATIC. Tough, durable and capable of taking the occasional bang when biking.
The slim 12.05mm profile with a 40mm face features a MAAP branded dial in a monochromatic design with a custom Shadow Gray MAAP TPU quick-release strap. Flip over the Modello Quattro UT4-T-M to find an MAAP acid-etched case back. Limited to a production run of 100 units and individually numbered.

Last week we shared the graphic from this sweatshirt in our Roundup and today we’re stoked to announce these crewnecks are now in stock at Send it Safely. These are great for layering. Not too heavyweight and not paper thin. I think they’re perfect. Especially for riding bikes with yer frenz.
Printed locally on Bella + Canvas fleece 52% cotton 48% polyester.
In stock now at Send it Safely.
Bombtrack’s dirt-oriented lineup is impressive. We’d argue it’s one of the most comprehensive lines available. With everything from a rigid MTB tourer to fast gravel bikes, urban commuters, and the Beyond, a bike with multiple cargo and rack mounts, designed for off-road touring and gravel rides alike. A bike for getting out into the world, the Beyond TI will pedal its way to some of the remotest bits of the planet. Based around a multiple-butted grade 9 titanium frame, our new MGV adventure carbon fork cuts weight while boosting comfort and control.

Excellent light touring randonneur bike with ultra light Toyo Factory tubing. An old grant spec sans 560 chainstays. This bike planes. Normal scratches and chips for a bike actually ridden and a small top tube dent from before my time with it. I rode it for a spring series and crush the commonwealth (Pittsburgh to Philadelphia).
