CHAPTER2 announce new partnership with the 2019 Bigla Team
CHAPTER2 will become the official frame supplier of what will be known as the Bigla team in 2019. CHAPTER2 is a performance road bike brand, designed in New Zealand by Michael Pryde.
The relatively new cycling brand has quickly become a household name in cycling thanks to its quest to create something unique that follows a road less travelled.
The road less travelled is a value that is shared with the team as it is known for discovering relatively unknown cycling talent and developing them into world-class athletes.
“At CHAPTER2 our aim is to ‘Explore the road less travelled’ - through our design, dealer-friendly business model, and the way we approach the world of cycling. By coming on board with the Bigla Team, we are partnering with people who share our values, who live and breathe cycling, and who want to tell the story of cycling beyond the norm… Bigla offers the opportunity to see a Women’s team develop, challenge expectations and break stereotypes. Exploring the road less travelled,” founder Michael Pryde said.
The company recently received the Gold Pin at the 2018 DINZ Best Awards for its design of their RERE bike with its reversible seat post, integrated fork crown, hidden seat clamp and direct mounted brakes particularly catching the attention of the judges.
“We’re excited to partner with CHAPTER2 at this stage of their journey,” team manager, Thomas Campana said. “They are an exciting start-up, pushing the boundaries of design and reshaping how things have been done. The brand is about inspiring people to ride and explore and to not be afraid to take new less travelled paths. When you look at the athletes we have on the team next year, a number of them left conventional paths to explore their passion for the bike that has translated into professional contracts. Their boldness has been rewarded. 2019 is going to be an exciting journey for them with partners such as CHAPTER2.”
