CHAPTER2 is bringing the art and aero with its first Artist Collaboration Project. This inaugural Artist Collaboration Project features the art of Caitlin Fielder on the CHAPTER2 TOA frameset.
For those unfamiliar, the CHAPTER2 TOA is the brand’s ‘performance all-road’ bike, but don’t let the description fool you; this is a fast machine. It’s a direct evolution of their original Tere road bike but offers more all-road and performance benefits. The TOA’s aero shapes present a perfect canvas for a skilled hand.
About the Artist — Caitlin Fielder (From Chapter2)
Caitlin has been painting for many years and recently turned her attention to doing customized cycling shoe painting. She’s painted shoes for some of the world’s most famous cyclists, including New Zealand’s UAE Team Emirates rider George Bennett. Caitlin’s custom projects have included shoes for Michael “Bling” Matthews, Daryl Impey, Luke Durbridge, Esteban Chaves, and many World Tour riders. She’s an athlete as well, competing and crushing the competition in many of the world’s hardest ultra running events.
A deep-rooted love for New Zealand connects Caitlin and CHAPTER2 at the core. Through this collaboration, the pair pays tribute to their roots, using the symbol of the native silver fern. Caitlin sourced real ferns in the Abel Tasman National Park, cutting them out and applying them to a 3-dimensional collage on the frameset.
“We are honored and privileged to kick off our Artist Edition Collection with Caitlin Fielder. A natural fit for CHAPTER2. She is the embodiment of our key values: Art, Cycling, and New Zealand. Beyond this, Caitlin is a wonderful artist, adding a multi-faceted dimension to her vision.” – Micheal Pryde (Founder Chapter2)
