Back by popular demand, Brompton have launched their exciting 2018 Black Edition bike. Inspired by city life at night, the Black Edition replaces the classic silver wheel rims, spokes and seat post with stylish black componentry.
The M6R model incorporates a classic M-Type handlebar for a good all-round ride position, providing the perfect blend of comfort and speed. With the practicality of 6 gears it is more than capable of covering greater distances and even tackling hillier routes. And, integrated mudguards will keep you protected from spray even in wet conditions, whilst a rack and front carrier block provide plenty of options for attaching luggage.
This sleek urban bike still encompasses all the usual features we have come to love from Brompton. It folds fast and easily into a compact package, so compact in fact that it is allowed on most public transport, even during peak times. Perfect for getting you around the city with style.

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.
