The Chpt 3 onemorelap bib shorts feature our heavy-duty compressive Forza fabric in a multi-panel construction for an impossible luxurious fit. The mesh bib straps are printed with a Roubaix inspired pattern and you sit on an ultra comfy special edition Progetto X2 seat pad
These shorts are made in a multi-panel fashion which is different to the flagship 1.11 shorts which uses a more expensive ‘bodypaint’ construction method that involves high wastage in the manufacturing process. In other words, it allows us to create a short that uses the highest quality of fabric but at a slightly lower price point to 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 give it an internal reveal of colour and pattern in contrast to the subdued exterior, much like a Savile Row suit.
18 years as a professional, over a thousand days racing under my belt, and yet there was one day’s racing I’d never completed: Paris-Roubaix. In my final year, 2014, it was one of my primary objectives, to finish that is. 257km, 28 cobbled sections totalling nearly 60km, and two laps of a velodrome. I did it all, apart from the last lap. I stood in the middle of that most famous of velodromes, helmet off, knocking back a Fanta, face covered in dirt, feeling a bit of a hero. Until my wife told me I had one more lap to do. ONEMORELAP? That pretty much summed up my final year, it wasn't exactly a blaze of glory.
The ONEMORELAP multi-panel bib short is inspired by my last Roubaix ride. It's robust – but comfortable; it feels like it’s up to a six-hour ride across the cobbles. The chamois is an evolution of the one I used in my last four years as a pro, only dedicated to my good friend Lord Latymer. But that is another story. This is the CHPT3 ONEMORELAP bib short, a reminder to us all that sometimes finishing can be as important as winning.

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.
