The Chpt3 Forbici 1.25 Short Sleeve Jersey Mk2 is a lightweight, technical garment with clear cut styling – perfectly suited for hot summer days.
Drawing inspiration from an era before technically advanced cycling apparel, the Forbici – Italian for scissor – takes its namesake from hack job attempts to increase airflow, involving scissor cut sleeves and DIY ventilation holes made in races gone by. Thankfully, the Forbici eliminates the need for scissors through a combination of dedicated polyester yarns and mesh construction which offers unrivalled wicking and featherweight contouring.
Three open rear pockets plus a fourth hidden zipper pocket for cards and cash make this jersey perfectly suited for anyone seeking top-tier performance in everyday ride environments.
The entire composition of the jersey reflects seasoned racer David Millar’s commitment to offering technical cycling apparel which defies conventional emphasis on overt branding. Subtlety trumps billboard graphics in a jersey attuned to a more minimalist design aesthetic – if you’re quiet in your confidence, this is the jersey for you.

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.
