Each Brompton is handmade in London with every model folding down into a small package only a little larger than its wheels. You can transform your bike into a neatly folded, easily carried package within a few seconds and its small size means that it is welcomed on most public transport (even during peak times). Its clever folding design ensures that mucky parts are kept neatly out of the way of clothing and luggage. The bike can be picked up using the grip on the saddle or towed along effortlessly using the handlebars. When folded its small enough to take inside reducing the chance of it getting stolen if left locked up on the street.
This S2L has the S spec handlebars that offer a sporty ride position and a rigid, lightweight, positive feel. The pay-off is less room for front luggage, but Brompton didn't conceive it as a touring bike.
The 2 gear option has one gear for hills and starting off, one for cruising. Based on the unique Brompton derailer system, with near perfect chain-alignment, this is the best set-up for flexibility and portability. All you need for cycling around town.
