The highly polished electrolysis nickel plating of this special edition Brompton bike creates exceptional anti-corrosion resistance, normally reserved for mining equipment. Minor variations to the finish appear on each bike, ensuring that the final look is incredibly unique.
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, easy to carry 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, it's small enough to take inside, so you don't have to let it out of your sight whilst at work or out and about.
This S6L Nickel Edition 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. Equipped with 6 Speed gears, this Brompton setup is the right choice for longer rides with more challenging hilly areas.

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.
