    Special Edition: 2019 CHPT3

    The next evolution of the collaboration between Brompton and David Millar’s CHPT3

    Are you looking for the hottest Brompton ever made? There's no doubt that the CHPT3 is going to win a lot of votes in that contest and... well, I did buy a 2018 CHPT3 myself, so you know it wins my vote.

    From the CHPT3 press release*:
    Everything about the new Brompton X CHPT3 has been designed with style and substance but also weight reduction in mind. Textured matte black titanium rear frame and forks, complement the fire red front frame and reduce weight over a standard Brompton – tipping the scales at only 10.3kg overall. The design philosophy continues within the black componentry, race-tuned suspension by David Millar himself, Schwalbe One tan-wall tyres and Fabric Scoop saddle, carrying the Devesa print pattern of CHPT3’s home town of Girona. All parts selected for performance and lightness, yet durable and comfortable for day to day city riding and carving out new routes.

    Fabric Scoop Saddle
    Offering exceptional performance and designed to suit your riding style. Extremely light, durable yet comfortable, the Fabric Scoop is designed exclusively for Brompton and features the Devesa print, inspired by the home of CHPT3, Girona.

    Fabric Slim Grips
    Stay in control with the lightest lock-on grip in the world. Dual texture kraton rubber sleeve, in red and black, over a perforated lightweight core. Maximum grip with or without gloves.

    Schwalbe One Folding Tire
    The fastest tires ever made for a Brompton. The new 35mm Schwalbe One offers low rolling resistance while retaining a high level of puncture protection by utilizing extremely cut-resistant high-tech fibre. The stunning Tan wall color sets off the unique CHPT3 look.

    Suspension for SPEED
    The extra firm rear suspension block paired with the Schwalbe One tyre provides sharp, responsive rider feel. Ideal for carving up the city streets with precision.

    CHPT3 Looks!
    Textured matte black titanium rear frame and front fork. Light, fast and durable. Complimented perfectly by CHPT3’s signature fire red on the front frame.



    The CHPT3 has many amazing features, yet at the core is the ever amazing Brompton Folding Bike

    Ready to Order?

    Brompton is only manufacturing 1,000 CHPT3's for the globe. If you want one of them, now is the time.
    BUY NOW!


    Superlight (Titanium) Details:
    For a few months now, Brompton has not been offering Superlight Bikes as an option. Titanium is difficult to source and it also challenges the manufacturing crew. At the moment Brompton is not saying that Superlights will be available at any time in the future. IF you want a titanium Brompton, I'd recommend that you get yourself a CHPT3 as the future of titanium Brompton bikes will continue to be a challenge for Brompton.
    Customization:
    If you are looking to make the CHPT3 a better commuter, we'd recommend adding fenders and a front bag as well as dynamo lighting (or at least USB lights). These items are all options on our CHPT3 product page.
    The CHPT3 is available from Brompton with the only options being seatpost length (standard, extended or telescopic), so any upgrades or modifications will be handled by our expert Brompton technicians.
    At Perennial Cycle, we are Brompton specialists with a lot of Brompton super-users on staff. Let us know if you have any questions.
    Call: 612-827-8000 | email
    Mailorder:
    Yes, we will mailorder you a CHPT3 if you live in the US. Shipping's a little extra to Alaska or Hawaii, but pretty reasonable all across the board. All bike's being shipped out first get fully assembled and test ridden by a Brompton Technician, then the bike is boxed for shipping. We expect you to be riding within 20 minutes of receiving the bike (and that's giving you plenty of time to be very deliberate and thoughtful about the process). If you have any questions along the way, feel free to give us a call: 612-827-8000.
