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 in black rather than silver for a suave stealth look.

Brompton has been making folding bikes for many years now, everyone folds down into a small package, little larger than the wheels, in around 10 to 20 seconds. All the componentry has been designed to suit Brompton’s unique fold, keeping lights, cables etc out of harm’s way and, by folding them in, keeping the chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. Once folded the bike has no projections 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 S6L Black Edition has the S shaped 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. 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 triggers is easy and, with its low transmission losses and wide range, this multi-gear system is the right choice for touring and for riding hilly areas.
