MAXtoA Hair Shader UVs

How would I use a map with the Hair Shader to create something similar to tiger stripes with Hair and Fur? I can't seem to get the shader to use the objects UVs. I can't find anything in the online documentation:

Any ideas on what I'm missing?

Thanks

You can use undocumented data channels from H&F trough Arnold's "User Data RGB" shader. H&F export two RGB channels "root_colors","tip_colors" and float "opacity" channel (can be used trough "User Data Float" shader).

Check the screenshot:
