Made For Cities
A Brompton is the perfect bicycle for the city. It folds down to a portable, practical size so can be taken on other forms of public and private transport. It can also be taken inside (homes, offices, bars) so it is a lot less likely to be stolen.
Its ride position and agility are more than a match for conventional bicycles. Small wheels mean fast acceleration from red lights and increased maneoverability through busy streets.
It is tough and can take everything the city throws at it, every day. A steel frame, efficient and puncture resistant tyres, handmade with high build quality and a design that has been refined over 25 years means Brompton bikes provide years of regular city use and beyond - check out these amazing journeys, pushing the bike to the limit.
Each bike is hand brazed by a skilled craftsman at our London factory. This makes every bike incredibly tough and unique. Each brazer is trained by Brompton for 18 months and has a ‘signature’ which they stamp on the parts of the bike that they work on. Brompton is making over 45,000 bikes per year and is the UK’s largest bike manufacturer.
Changing the way people live in cities
The Brompton was conceived as a product that increases people’s sense of independence and increases peoples sense of freedom, and this concept is still at the heart of everything we do. When people think about getting around in the city better, we want them to think of Brompton.
It’s built for your safety
We take quality seriously, that is why each bike is built by hand by our highly qualified team at our factory in London. The small wheels and responsive handling allow you to get a quick start from stationary and swiftly guide you around potholes and other road obstacles. The upright riding position allows the rider to be fully aware of the traffic around them. For riding at night a range of lighting options can be selected on the bike, from battery powered to hub-dynamos to ensure you are seen.
The clever design means that the bike can easily be folded or unfolded in under 20 seconds. When folded the bike is locked together in a compact package, which can be carried or towed easily and conveniently stored almost anywhere. The chain and gears are in the centre of the folded package keeping them away from clothing and luggage.
