In stock and available for immediate dispatch

These shorts are designed to be worn with all the other items in our 'Defiant' collection. The collection is inspired by iconic races, such as Paris-Roubaix and the Giro d'Italia, with a backstory referencing the hardship and sacrifice involved in professional racing. These shorts feature a bi-elastic fabric manufactured using a polyamide yarn made of 100% recycled material. 

The fabric is a 190 g/m2 weight with 35% Lycra® XTRA LIFE™ content. The shorts are constructed in a multipanel fashion, unlike the flagship 1.11 shorts, which use a more expensive "body paint" construction method that involves high wastage in the manufacturing process.

In other words, this construction method allows us to create a short that uses the highest quality of fabric but at a slightly lower price point than the 1.11. This is also the reason we used a bib that is identical to the type of bib used in racing, the only difference being that it has a pattern printed on it in order to provide an internal reveal of colour and pattern in contrast to the subdued exterior, much like a Savile Row suit

The Defiant collection fits true to size. CHPT3 bespoke clothing uses a tailoring system for its sizes. We use the physical chest or waist size as the garment size - If you have a 40" chest you need a 40" Jersey - Please note while the CHPT3 range is not designed for racing it is still a close fitting athletic design suitable for active cyclists.
