The Chpt. /// 1.83 Base Layer is a ultra lightweight, super soft and luxurious summer weight base layer that excels in moisture managment.
Designed to be worn under the 1.22 jersey the 1.83 Base is also the perfect base for all your riding between April and October.
The 1.83 Base Layer as told by David Millar
This is a microfibre polyester made as light and soft as possible. Its hydrophilic outer layer wicks moisture off the skin to the jersey yet doesn't absorb moisture along the way. We made it a perfect weight so that when paired with the 1.21 jersey you end up with the combined weight of a normal looking jersey only with much better comfort and moisture management.
The neck is a little rounder than normal, more like a vest than a t-shirt. This compensates for the higher necks of the 1.21 and 1.61. I chose a sleeveless cut as this and the 1.21 jersey are designed to be used together. Sleeves on an undershirt can often be more uncomfortable with a short-sleeve jersey.
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. 257 km, 28 cobbled sections totalling nearly 60 km, 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. Still, I love that race, and when it came to finding inspiration for new interpretation of our classic base layer there was only one classic worth representing, the Queen of them all.
The ONEMORELAP base layer uses the same build as our much loved original Vuelta themed base layer 1.81, but Chpt3 designer Richard Pearce created this unique perspective on the finish line of that most famous velodrome. This is the Chpt3 ONEMORELAP base layer, a reminder to us all that sometimes finishing can be as important as winning.
