What is a Brompton folding bike?
Brompton's are easy to fold, quick to ride and can be taken anywhere in the world. They started low volume production in 1981 and have continuously improved their design since then while still being hand built in a west London factory.
The current iteration of the Brompton allows you to customise everything from the colour and accessories all the way to your gearing choice.
Why choose a Brompton?
It will change the way you experience the city
Let a Brompton folding bike take you anywhere - its flexibility allows you to get more out of the city, day and night. Free yourself from the confines of other forms of transport and take in the city around you. And if you want to travel a bit further, just pop on a plane, boat or car and let it take you further afield
It’s easy to fold
You can transform your bike into a neatly folded, easily carried package within a few seconds. Its small size means that it is welcomed on most public transport (even during peak times) and inside buildings for safe storing. Its clever design ensures that mucky parts are kept neatly out of the way. The folded bike can be picked up using the grip on the saddle or towed along effortlessly using the handlebars, kinda like a suitcase.
It will pay for itself in a matter of months
Save money, time and get fit. Use a Brompton folding bicycle to zip through traffic or as part of your commute to bring down costs and get fit at the same time. Brompton bikes aren't just for the daily commute though, many people use them to keep fit and explore the city and beyond.

It’s built for your safety
Brompton take quality seriously, which is why each folding bike they build is done by hand by their highly qualified team at the 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.
Less chance of getting stolen
Bike theft is on the rise, however you can simply take your Brompton with you. At work, home or out and about due to its compact size the Brompton fold up is welcomed at most places and venues. You won't have the worry of leaving your bike locked up outside and the hassle of replacing a bike. If you purchase a Brompton folding bike make sure you register your bike for an additional layer of security. If you do want to lock your Brompton up however, the folding locks from Brontrager make the perfect accessory!
