Our bikes

The Brompton is a bike which rides superbly, is safe, agile and fast, yet folds easily and quickly into a highly-compact and portable package. The result is a vehicle that increases your sense of freedom and independence.

The featured bikes we have specified here are designed to give you an insight into what options are available; to explore the complete list of options visit the interactive Bike Builder.

  • Global Traveller - P6R

    P6R Global traveller

    This particular model comes with Schwalbe Marathon tyres, a telescopic seatpost, a T Bag, Rack Sack, Shimano hub dynamo lighting and Eazy Wheels.

    The multiple positions afforded by the P Type's handlebars are designed with the touring cyclist in mind, especially when paired with 6 gears and a rack. Although the handlebars are a little heavier than the M Type's, the lower grips, angled for comfort on longer stretches of road, allow the rider to get down out of the wind and deliver real power to the pedals; the upper grips provide a welcome contrast after a long stretch of riding and also give great control for manoeuvring in traffic.

  • Fast & Fun - S2L-X

    S2L-X Fast & fun

    This particular model features titanium, uses Brompton's derailleur system to turn a single-speed into a nimble 2-speed bike and comes with Brompton tyres, a front carrier block and reflectors.

    For many, the S Type is the prettiest Brompton, and it certainly is the lightest. The grips, at about 935mm from the ground, are appreciably lower than on the M type, and 50mm further forward, giving a sporty riding position which complements the positive feel of these bikes.

  • Light Delight - S1E-X

    S1E-X Light delight

    This model, the S1E-X, is our lightest bike. It is stripped down but spec’d up with Kojak tyres and Superlight components.

    For many, the S Type is the prettiest Brompton, and it certainly is the lightest. The grips, at about 935mm from the ground, are appreciably lower than on the M type, and 50mm further forward, giving a sporty riding position which complements the positive feel of these bikes.

  • Smart Commuter - H2L-X

    H2L-X Smart commuter

    This model features titanium and comes with Brompton tyres, a telescopic seatpost, an O Bag, SON hub dynamo lighting, Eazy Wheels and a Brooks B17S saddle.

    The H Type was a new addition to the range for 2012. Providing a markedly more upright riding position (it has the highest grip height of the four options at 1072mm), the H Type is for those who like to travel with unhurried style, taking in the journey along the way.

  • Urban Climber - H6L

    H6L Urban climber

    This particular model features Brompton tyres, an extended seatpost, an O Bag, Shimano hub dynamo lighting and Eazy Wheels.

    The H Type was a new addition to the range for 2012. Providing a markedly more upright riding position (it has the highest grip height of the four options at 1072mm), the H Type is for those who like to travel with unhurried style, taking in the journey along the way.

  • Timeless Classic - M3L

    M3L Timeless classic

    This particular model features Sturmey Archer's reliable 3-speed hub as well as Brompton tyres, a telescopic seatpost, a C Bag, battery lights and a Brooks B17 saddle.

    The distinctive U-shape of the M Type's handlebars has been used on the Brompton since the outset: it gives a fairly upright ride with excellent control. The M Type is the all-rounder in our range and remains the most popular Brompton, as much at home in the city as on a country lane, and with plenty of room for luggage at the front.


Finely-engineered and elegant, the Brompton has a full-sized frame,  made mainly of steel for strength and stiffness. It is designed to be  practical and light enough to be genuinely portable; actual weight depends on model and configuration, but ranges from 9 – 12½ kg (20 – 28lbs). Brompton weights are true weights; unlike most bike  manufacturers, we include the weight of mudguards, pedals, etc. in our  figures – if it’s on the bike, we weigh it.

The combination of a rigid frame and accurate alignment makes for  efficient transmission of your energy and a lively, first-rate ride; countless owners use them on long journeys and for touring and many  prefer the ride of a Brompton to that of conventional bikes.
