BROMPTON X CHPT3
It's been five years since the collaboration began yet it feels like the story is just beginning. This is Brompton x CHPT3, the third chapter.
The Brompton x CHPT3 2020 is not just the bike that every serious cyclist should have thanks to its performance credentials, it’s also the most aesthetically thought-out bike in the Brompton range. That’s in no small part thanks to David Millar’s design sensibilities. Drawn to creators and others who are in the artistic world – we meet one who inspires him.
Made for speed; the bike has been designed with a stripped back look; no mudguards or front luggage. Attention to detail with a unique range of components; premium grips, saddle, hinge clamps and rear frame clip. Never forgetting to keep everything lightweight; black titanium rear frame and forks, Schwalbe One tanwall tyres. A performance Brompton for the city.
The look is completed with the Barrivell print; a graphical element has been added to the frame, it is a symbol created to represent Girona, the home of CHPT3. Its center is an ancient warren of alleys that weave between buildings built onto a hillside nearly a thousand years ago, it feels like a labyrinth of stairs and arches and is called the Barrivell, translated from Catalan this means the old neighbourhood.
Our Barrivell symbol, with its abstraction of stairs and arch, is a lasting memory of Girona.
Each bike comes with a limited-edition Brompton-CHPT3 Sling Bag. A first for both brands, the idea was inspired by two things:
The way David uses his Brompton CHPT3 – moving fast around town – he wanted a bag that could be used on and off the bike and could carry the bare essentials for a working day, with the capacity to hold a 13" laptop computer.
The second inspiration was David's travelling around Asia and seeing the multitude of different styles of sling bags so commonly used in cities: they looked modern and technical rather than classic and traditional. The bag can also be purchased separately.
The Brompton x CHPT3 2020 Special Edition will be available to purchase online soon. Sign up below to be notified when the first release of bikes are available.
