CHPT3 has partnered with Vielo to launch a new gravel bike that’s based on the British bike specialist’s V+1 model.
According to CHPT3, the V+1 comes equipped with Campagnolo’s new Ekar gravel-specific groupset, along with the Italian brand’s Shamal wheelset that’s shod with WTB Riddler 45 tires.
“The moment Campagnolo released their EKAR groupset, specifically designed for gravel riding, I realized we’d found our perfect match. Campagnolo represents everything about cycling, they were the pioneers. My first professional bike was equipped with Record, and the thumb down shifter is one of my favorite things in the world. The carbon Shamal wheels and WTB Riddler 45 tires make all roads become a playground, and there’s something beautifully mechanical and analogue with Campagnolo that fits our vision for CHPT3 DIRT. Robust and elegant,” says David Millar CEO of CHPT3.
“The roots of this collaboration are deeply connected through both our core values of honesty, integrity, reliability and just wanting to do things better,” explains Ian Hughes, co-founder of Vielo.
The special edition V+1 will be made in small batches with a total of 50 pieces, which will be available directly from Vielo.cc, as well as selected CHPT3 dealers for £7000.
