The Chpt3 Defiant 1.16 Bibshorts combine sartorial cues and sustainable construction in a garment inspired by historic rides. Performance and everyday function interweave, giving you a new found freedom when the racing’s over.
Constructed from panels of 100% recycled polyamide yarns with bi-stretch properties, the Defiant Bibshorts embody open resistance to material waste. Maintaining the highest quality fabrics but at a lower price point than Chpt3’s top-tier Origin 1.11 Bibshorts, if you’re a discerning cyclist, the Defiant Bibshorts are perfect for you.
The distilled design ethos that underpins Chpt3’s work is reflected in the utilitarian composition of these shorts – a custom Castelli Progretto X2 seat pad and dotted, silicone leg grip composition on the interior of the shorts ensure maximal comfort whilst the Forza fabric utilised gives optimal muscle support. A muted exterior speaks of unvoiced confidence. Contrasting colour prints over the ultra-light bib straps nod to the flair of bespoke Savile Row tailors.
Drawing inspiration from the hardship and sacrifice tied up with iconic races such as Paris-Roubaix and the Giro d’Italia, the Defiant Bibshorts are the product of world-class racer David Millar’s intimate knowledge of that liminal state where cycling innovators operate. Grown from endurance, technology and clear-sightedness, these are a must-have if you’re invested in style as well as performance.

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.
