Chpt 3 1.16 Defiant Short by David Millar - 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

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.
