The Brompton bike is made for those that live, work or play in cities. Folding to a third of its size and weighing on average just 11kg for a standard model, the Brompton bike is easy to carry and easy to store. Take it on all forms of transport –rush-hour trains, in the boot of the car or the local taxi boat.
When folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package, a little larger than its wheels. The vulnerable parts, like lights and cable-runs, are folded out of harm's way, and the oily chain and gears are kept away from clothing and luggage.
The Brompton can be carried like a small suitcase using the frame or saddle as a handle. And it can be pushed or towed easily on the small roller wheels.
On trains and buses it tucks neatly into luggage space (it is welcome on most public transport). It can be cycled to the airport and checked in as a luggage (and taken in the cabin on some airlines) – it's great to ride at the other end. It goes in cars, on yachts, behind the pilot's seat of a single-prop, in caravans and on narrowboats.
Brompton bikes are taken on trips as frequently as they take their owners on journeys.
A variety of luggage options are also available.
