Brompton S2L 2016

{{ vm.state.webThumbOverlay.code }}



Offering riders who are after more of a lower, sporty front end and a rigid, lightweight, positive feel, the S2L is a great Brompton bike. The 2-speed option has one gear for hills and starting off, and one for cruising. Based on the unique Brompton derailleur system, with near perfect chain-alignment, this is the best set-up for flexibility and portability.

Perfect for carrying onto trains and buses, the frame and handlebars fold down into a small package that's only a little larger than its wheels. Once folded, the bike has no protrusions or loose parts, and will carry like a small suitcase. Its chain and gears are kept away from clothing and luggage when folded and lights and cables are kept out of the way so there's no snagging on clothing if you take it on the train.

This bike is only available for click & collect.

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.
