The lightweight and luxuriously comfortable Chpt3 Vuelta 1.81 Base Layer is perfectly suited to hotter climes. A striking printed design and nuanced composition are ideal if you’re looking forward to long summer rides.
Constructed from microfibre polyester with a hydrophilic outer layer, the Vuelta Base Layer disperses moistures for faster drying and lasting comfort. Soft to touch and lined around the arms, neck and hem for superior comfort, wearing this base layer feels effortless. Dedicated stretch panels at the hem are optimised for a variety of riding positions, giving you the freedom of movement to enjoy sun-soaked rides.
The design is derived from seasoned pro-rider David Millar’s experiences cycling the Vuelta a España. The parametric data – such as heart rate, cadence, wattage – utilised in generating the graphics result in a colourful and striking print which reflects the emotional tangle associated with the liminal state achieved in top-tier racing.
Worn with a Chpt3 jersey, you’re in for an unrivalled combination.
- Vuelta a España inspired print design
- Lightweight microfibre polyester fabric construction
- Stretch panels at hem
- Lined around arms, neck and hem for superior comfort
- Hydrophilic outer layer for fast drying
In 2015, the Chpt3 project provided the newly-retired David Millar, and designer Richard Pearce, with the opportunity to work alongside long-time sponsors to create something truly different and exclusive. A collaboration with Castelli launched the brand; a collection of lovingly designed cycling garments that fuse the latest material technology with a sartorial elegance opposed to the billboard stylings of the peloton. The result is the ultimate in both performance cyclewear and coffee-stop chic. Read more about CHPT3.
