Brompton S6L Black Edition 2016



With only 5000 units made, the sleek Brompton Black edition is sure to turn a few heads out on the streets.

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. All you need for cycling around town. Then to top it all off this model comes with mudguards as standard. The Brompton SL6 is an essential piece of kit for the everyday user.

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.
