With only 5000 units made, the sleek Brompton Black edition is sure to turn a few heads out on the streets. Designed for streetwise urban cyclists and commuters, the Black edition features a number of key components anodised in black rather than silver for a smooth stealth look.

Brompton has been making folding bikes for many years now with every model folding down into a small package only a little larger than the wheels. All the componentry has been designed to suit Brompton’s unique fold, keeping lights, cables out of harm’s way and, by folding them in, the chain and gears are kept away from clothing and luggage. Once folded the bike has no protrusions or loose parts, and will carry like a small suitcase.

Excellent frame rigidity and an extended seatpost ensure that the cyclist's efforts are efficiently converted into a responsive, quick ride, while a full-sized wheel base delivers stability at speed. All of this adds up to a quality ride. This M6L Black Edition has the M shaped handlebars that have been used on Brompton’s from the beginning; they offer a more upright riding position, and excellent control. The M type is an all-rounder in the Brompton range. As happy in the city as it is on a country lane, it offers plenty of room up front for luggage. It is also equipped with the 6 Speed BWR (Brompton Wide Range) gears. The Combination of the highly-efficient BWR hub with Brompton's own derailleur system gives six evenly-spaced gears. Control with the two trigger system is easy and, with its low transmission losses and wide range, this multi-gear system is the right choice for touring or riding hilly areas.

ABOUT BROMPTON

 

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.
