Built by hand in London since 1976, the Brompton is simple fun, agile adventure, stylish mobility, and potent portability all folded up into one extremely versatile bike. Explore the city from a comfortable, upright position as the steel frame and 16-inch aluminum wheels whisk you away to new experiences. Need to hop on a bus or the train? No problem. Bask in the freedom of truly multi-modal transportation, and in seconds, fold your Brompton into a suitcase-sized, easy-to-carry package, bring it aboard, and quickly unfold it at your destination to continue your two-wheeled journey.
From there, your upgrade options are as endless as the possibilities of the locales you travel to: a titanium fork and rear stays for a lower weight; a multitude of gearing options for hills; racks and fenders for all-weather riding; handlebar options for a more upright or sporty position; a Brooks B17 Special or Brompton Wide saddle; dynamo hub lighting systems; even Schwalbe tires for extra puncture protection. If you're in it for the long haul, you can also deck your ride out in Brompton bags and tour the countryside. A Brompton can take you everywhere, and, thanks to the bike's highly compact form when folded, you can take it just about anywhere, too!
The Brompton's drivetrain is inside the fold so you can't get chain lube on your clothing.
Quick-connects keep the Brompton from unfolding so that it's always easy to lift and carry.
Additional color options are also available for fork, steerer, and rear triangle (images show them in black).
Smart Brompton Luggage options are also available so you're ready for anything.
