Brompton kicks off 2019 with an update to their most successful collaboration, the CHPT3
Former pro-cyclist, David Millar, teamed up with Brompton back in 2016 to create a special edition folding bike in collaboration with his CHPT3 brand. The updated bike, known as the CHPT3 V2, receives a raft of changes, including race-tuned suspension that provides a spirited and stiff ride to suit those who, like Mr Millar, want sprint away from the lights as fast as possible.
The paint is now a textured black finish, and we're excited about the machined hinge clamps and seat-post quick release levers. Instead of Brompton's standard black plastic levers, you'll find machined fittings on the CHPT3 V2 bike. We think they'll add a touch of refinement to Brompton's latest special edition.
Elsewhere, the red Brooks Cambium saddle found on the first version is switched out for a Fabric Scoop saddle with a synthetic patterned upper and matching grips. Schwalbe have made a 16" version of the Schwalbe One tyre, adding a classic tan side wall to the tyre.
Word from Brompton is that only 1000 bikes will be made available worldwide, and bikes will arrive at Condor around the beginning of March.
