THE BROMPTON RANGE EXPLAINED
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.

In the widest range of colours – whatever your ride style, there’s a C Line for you.
Choose your gears, 2, 3, or 6. Select from 3 types of handlebar and seat posts too. Click luggage into place with the front carrier block (included) or add a rack to load up more. Swap out the saddle for a handmade Brooks, get dynamo lighting that you power yourself.

Previously known comparable models: Brompton Superlight
This is Brompton. Reinvented. 7.45 kg. Precision engineered titanium.
The entirely re-engineered T Line titanium frame weighs 37% less than our original all-steel equivalent and is just as strong.
At 7.45 kg in total, the T Line is comparable to a carbon road bike. Yet, it can be comfortably ridden by a 110kg rugby player. And withstand the punishing impact of the city.
Brompton ride dynamics have always made owners smile, and now they're elevated in every way.
Carbon cranks and cast Ti bottom bracket shift your power for a faster ride. Naturally, shock-absorbing titanium smooths out the road. The one-piece carbon fork and wider carbon handlebars make it stiffer and even more responsive. This is a serious machine that's seriously fun to ride.
