CHPT3 Edition

Four years ago, one of Britain’s most successful and influential cyclists David Millar, the man behind the CHPT3 brand, met with Brompton CEO Will Butler-Adams. David expressed that he rarely used a bike in the city, only for training and competing, so the conversation turned to what would be the best Brompton for a die-hard ‘roadie’, not a pastiche but a bike that was lightweight, stripped-down, dynamic to ride but useful day to day. That conversation kick started the collaboration and was the moment the idea for the Brompton X CHPT3 was forged.

Now, 2019, the new Brompton X CHPT3 has arrived and the page has been turned.

The Devesa Print - David Millar

CHPT3 Devesa print

“The Parc de la Devesa sits on the very edge of Girona's centre: laid out and planted in 1,850 it covers 40 hectares with 2,500 plane trees and serves as the respiratory organ for Girona. The trees rise above 60m, making them the tallest in Catalonia, offering the sensation of being in a natural cathedral. 

Returning from training rides, the first glimpses of the Girona old town come through the trees of the Devesa, it serves as the final geographical marker - imprinted in the mind to signify completion.

If someone can't see the wood for the trees it's means they can't understand a situation clearly because they're too involved in it. Cycling is like that, especially modern cycling, all the data at your fingertips. It's part and parcel of being a cyclist. 

There's no point in denying this fact, so we've decided to celebrate it. Choosing one of the 2,500 trees and making it even more detailed, like only a cyclist could. Sorry not sorry.”
