Made For Cities
A Brompton is the perfect bicycle for the city.
It folds down to a portable, practical size so can be taken on other forms of public and private transport. It can also be taken inside (homes, offices, bars) so it is a lot less likely to be stolen.
Its ride position and agility are more than a match for conventional bicycles. Small wheels mean fast acceleration from red lights and increased maneoverability through busy streets.
It is tough and can take everything the city throws at it, every day. A steel frame, efficient and puncture resistant tyres, handmade with high build quality and a design that has been refined over 25 years means Brompton bikes provide years of regular city use and beyond - check out these amazing journeys, pushing the bike to the limit.
LEARN ABOUT THE BROMPTON FOLDING BIKE
Based around a single frame and wheel size, there are four types of handlebar to choose from; combine these with the different saddle, gearing and component options to build your perfect Brompton.
The clever design means that the bike can easily be folded or unfolded in under 20 seconds. When folded the bike is locked together in a compact package, which can be carried or towed easily and conveniently stored almost anywhere. The chain and gears are in the centre of the folded package keeping them away from clothing and luggage.
The four handlebar types offer different ride positions for various styles of riding. The handlebar options mean that the bike will give a superb, comfortable riding position.
Each handlebar holds a different appeal. Click on the handlebars to see the riding position.
The small wheels afford the bike great acceleration and manoeuvrability, ideal for stop-start city riding in traffic. The smaller wheel diameter also increases the strength and rigidity of the wheels. The suspension system and long seatpost make the bike comfortable to ride over rough surfaces and for longer distances.
With 4 basic gearing options, plus the ability to adjust the range, the gearing can be tailored to suit the rider and terrain. From first time commuter to scaling alpine climbs, there is a gearing option for everyone.
1 SPEED - Light and simple for flat city riding
2 SPEED - One gear for hills and setting off, one for cruising. Flexible and lightweight
3 SPEED - A robust enclosed hub gear, a great choice for everyday cycling
6 SPEED - The ultimate all-rounder, for those who wish to take longer rides and challenging inclines
The Brompton luggage system allows the bike to fit into your daily life. Day-to-day carrying needs which might need some thought become easy as the luggage system offers carrying solutions for everyone. The different styles and sizes of bags available mean there is a bag for any situation.
Steering and stability are unaffected by the front luggage system, as the bag does not attach to the handlebar.
Brompton Bikes are available in a range of 12 painted colours, including two-tone. They are are also available with a Raw Lacquer over the steel, allowing you to see the craftsmanship of the brazing.
