Handmade in London, the handy Brompton folds down into a compact package only a little bit bigger than its wheels. It is super easy to carry around and its small size means it is welcomed on most public transport (even during busier peak times) making it the perfect commuter bike. With a clever folding design, muddy parts are tucked inside the package keeping them out of the way of clothing and luggage. A grip on the saddle makes the bike easy to carry around or alternatively you can tow it along effortlessly using the handlebars.
Made from a highly polished electrolysis nickel plating, this special edition Brompton bike has exceptional anti-corrosive qualities, and with hardwearing titanium extremities this bike is super lightweight. The nature of the finish means that minor variations appear on each bike, resulting in a final look that is completely unique each time.
Featuring Brompton’s M-shaped handlebars this bike offers a more upright riding position with excellent control. Equipped with 6 speed gears, it is able to tackle longer rides and more challenging hilly areas and with an upgraded Brooks saddle that is ideal for long distance riding you will be fully prepared to tackle the longer commute.

The first Brompton bike was built in 1975 from the South Kensington bedroom of designer Andrew Ritchie.
His initial prototypes were crude, but through a relentless refining process Ritchie hit upon a cycle that would go on to become the gold standard of folding bikes.
In recent years, the company has seen rapid expansion worldwide, and now has stores in cities including London, Amsterdam, Beijing, Tokyo and Barcelona.
But not content to rest on their laurels, Brompton has a large team of in-house designers and engineers who are constantly developing new accessories and improving upon the design of the bike itself.
Every Brompton is handmade in their London factory by skilled craftsman who have undergone an intensive 18-month training program, and who each have a unique signature which they stamp on the parts of the bike they work on.
This culture of accountability is indicative of Brompton’s commitment to quality, and helps to ensure that every one of their bikes is built to the highest standard.
