BROMPTONCHPT3 S2E-X - TITANIUM - LIMITED EDITION - 2018
The beautiful Brompton CHPT3 Special Edition designed in collaboration with David Millar and his CHPT 3 Clothing company is back. David Millar is one of Britain’s most successful cyclists and Tour de France stage winners and this high end Brompton is designed to be fast, lightweight and compliment his newly released clothing range perfectly.
The CHPT3 bike has a limited run of 500 bikes worldwide, making this as desirable as they come. The bike is based on the standard S2E-X Extra Light Bike but has several components that are custom for this bike including a Titanium fork and rear triangle in black, one off red Brooks C17 Cambium Saddle and Ergon GA2 grips, Special Schwalbe Kojak tires with gumwall sides and a frame finished in high sparkle grey and red. CHPT3 branding on the frame and ID badge finish off the look.
Elsewhere it features several key components in gloss black rather than the usual silver, and uses the classic S-Type bar which is Brompton's lowest and sportiest handlebar. This gives a zippy, fast position for riders of average height and a mid-height position for shorter riders. The Two Speed Gearing is simple and fast and more importantly light! Coupled with the super-fast rolling and slick Schwalbe Kojak tires this bike is perfect for those fast commutes worthy of a Tour De France rider.

A BIT ABOUT BROMPTON: If you were to walk into the store and look at a Brompton we would say there are three things you should look for in a folding bike. All of them are fairly obvious. One, the bike should ride well - and, on a small wheeled bike that's tricky because there's a fine line between maneuverability (which is a virtue) and twitchiness (which is a vice). Two, the bike should fold well - otherwise you're blood pressure will rise and you'll curse the day you bought it. Third, it should be transportable, or highly storable - because that's the whole point, right?
Brompton is the only company we've seen that answers all three criteria - and believe us, we've tried every brand out there. The reason others can't compete is because Brompton has answered a fundamental engineering problem. If a bike is going to unfold to a large footprint (which takes the twitch out) then it is unfolding to a bigger bike - and by all logic, a bigger bike unfolded would be a bigger bike folded. So, it's pretty much true that for most folding bikes they either have great rideabilty but poor transportability or vice versa. And nearly all of them are a mess to fold.
Not Brompton. Brompton has designed the Platonic form of all folding bikes. The bike folds to the smallest size on the market, unfolds in a highly precise and easy manner, and has the same axle-to-axle footprint as a hybrid bike. How did they do this? By not only designing a clever frame, but also designing some 1200 proprietary parts that make everything fit - and fit perfectly. Oh, and nearly all of this is made in England. No wonder this bike has a cult following.
