The Brompton is a bike which rides superbly, is safe, agile and fast, yet folds easily and quickly into a highly-compact and portable package. The result is a vehicle that increases your sense of freedom and independence.
S TYPE Straight, low bars (grip height 935mm) offering a sporty ride position and a lightweight, positive feel.The pay-off is less room for front luggage.
2 SPEED Based on the unique Brompton derailleur system, with near perfect chain-alignment, this is the best set-up for flexibility and portability: one gear for hills and starting off, one for cruising.
VERSION L Equipped with mudguards, essential for non-fair weather cyclists.
ALL-STEEL On all Bromptons, steel is used for the main frame and handlebar stem.The steel gives rigidity to the vital link between handlebar and pedals, which is the key to good handling. All-steel Bromptons also feature a rear triangle and front fork made of steel.
STANDARD SEATPOST Our lightest and shortest seatpost; but if your inside leg is more than 33"/84cm, you will almost certainly need a longer post.
BROMPTON SADDLE Comfortable, practical and light: this high-quality unisex saddle has been designed by Brompton for our bikes. A moulded grip under the nose facilitates carrying, and the ingenious Brompton Pentaclip allows stepless adjustment of the saddle angle.
SCHWALBE MARATHON Heavier than the Brompton tyre and noticeably slower, but it is solidly-built, with Schwalbe green guard puncture protection and a thicker sidewall to make the tyre more robust. Finished with reflective sidewalls.
STANDARD SUSPENSION Fine for many, particularly lighter people and those who ride and pedal smoothly.
BATTERY The LED rear lamp with integral reflectors, which stays fixed to the bike, was designed especially for Brompton and gives a good bright light. At the front is the neat, powerful 3-LED battery lamp, easily removed for folding with a quick-release. Batteries included.
EAZY WHEELS 4 tyred rollers (2 when fitted to a Brompton without a rear rack) with industrial bearings allow the folded bike to be pushed around smoothly. A rubber bung in the seat post can be used as a brake to prevent unwanted rolling.
