The very first product from David Millar the Chpt. /// 1.11 Short has been design to offer the best possible fit for all day comfort. But the standard race shorts do this too, to make these a Chpt. /// product they had to do more. The high density Lycra is heavier softer and altogether more luxurious than the fabrics used in our race line giving you that feeling of weight and warmth you only get with the finest quality.
The high density fabrics together with the broad reinforced bib brace make these a great choice for any weather.
The Chpt. /// 1.11 Short by David Millar
When racing I used the Body Paint short.
I still own the first prototypes that I tested because I loved them so much.
Body Paint because they are one piece of engineered seamless Lycra. These differ from the race version by being more luxurious; no race minimalism has been applied here. The Lycra has increased multi-directional properties and a density that makes it heavier and smoother to the touch.
We have made the bibs feel more like braces than elastic bands.
C77 the Latymer Clause - The chamois is the same tech as I used to race with, only with a design in tribute to a good friend, Crispin Latymer, whom I introduced to cycling yet forgot to educate on the finer points of dressing.
On his first ride he wore the shorts inside out, thinking it made total sense for the chamois to be in direct contact with the saddle. These shorts are designed for everyday, all-weather use. Just please keep the chamois on the inside.
