THE BROMPTON WAY

The past year has been extraordinary. Among the highlights, an MBE for Andrew Ritchie, the inventor

of the Brompton, to go with his Prince Philip Designers Prize; the company received two Queen’s

Awards for Enterprise (for both Innovation and International Trade) as well as the BikeBiz Brand

of the Year award from our peers in the industry; and the 5th instalment of the Brompton World

Championship, with 750 registered riders, has now become an established part of the (British) racing

calendar.

The story of the past 12 months is of a company whose future is bound up with its history: there is

a Brompton Way of doing things, marrying excellence in design, engineering and manufacturing with

a passion for doing it all here in London. Brompton has never followed the easy option, insisting on

getting things right rather than getting them easily or first, and that remains our approach.

At the heart of the Brompton Way is a belief that designs and innovations should be built to last, just

like the bikes themselves. So Bromptons are practical, reliable machines, designed and manufactured

with real life, not the showroom, in mind.

This total commitment to excellence through the entire product lifecycle has long been cherished

by Brompton owners, but it is an approach that is now being recognised more widely for its success

and sustainability.

We hope this brochure goes some way to showing you why we are different, and why it matters.

A Brompton will redefine how you see transport.

PERSONAL TRANSPORT

It fits in with you and your journeys, whether you are a city commuter or a global tourer, in a hurry

or taking your time.

Whether you use public or private transport, or neither, a Brompton allows you to rethink, vary and

adapt your journeys at will. A Brompton sets you free from the constraints imposed by the combustion

engine, weather, transport systems, bike thieves and other hassles.

On trains and buses it tucks into luggage space and it’s easily checked in for commercial flights... in

cars, on boats, behind the pilot’s seat of a single-prop, Bromptons are taken on trips as often as they

take their owners on journeys.

And whether your trip involves other forms of transport or just your bike, when it’s over your

Brompton fits in a cupboard, under a desk or in a cloakroom, safe from theft and the elements, ready

for your next journey by personal transport.

We think you’ll love our bikes, and the independence and freedom that comes with a Brompton. You

might even wonder how you ever managed without a bike that tears up the transport rule book and

puts you back in charge of your journeys.

THE DESIGN

All Bromptons share the same frame geometry, the result of 35 years of constant innovation and improvement,

going back to the first prototypes developed by Andrew Ritchie in his bedroom in 1975.

Today, the design process involves more people and complex software, but the goal remains to

create the perfect combination of ride quality and compact portability, with neither treated as an

afterthought. We also refuse to design obsolescence into our bikes, so practically all innovations are

designed to be retrofitted on the tens of thousands of older Bromptons still in daily use.

Every Brompton folds down into a small package, little larger than the wheels, in 10 to 20 seconds.

The componentry has been designed to suit this unique fold, keeping lights, cables, etc. out of harm’s

way and, by folding them in, keeping the chain and gears away from clothing and luggage. With no projections

or loose parts, the folded bike carries like a small suitcase; rollers make it easy to stow the

bike. Rear suspension is standard and also allows the bike to be ‘parked’. Parked, a Brompton stands

on its own, leaving both hands free. Folded, a Brompton automatically stays securely locked together.

Just as remarkable as the fold is the Brompton’s ride quality. The frames are made primarily of hightensile

steel alloys for strength and stiffness, and tight tolerances in design and manufacturing ensure

highly accurate frame-alignment. Excellent frame rigidity ensures that the cyclist’s ef forts are efficiently

converted into a responsive, quick ride, while a full-sized wheelbase delivers stability at speed.

OUR FACTORY

Our reputation is based on excellence in design, engineering and manufacturing, which is why we do

not build bikes for anyone else, and why no one builds bikes for us. We build our bikes to last and to

be used – rigorously – on a daily basis, and that takes care and commitment.

Every Brompton is built from scratch, under stringent quality controls, in our factory in West London;

we don’t just assemble parts manufactured elsewhere. We even make most of the 1,200 parts that

go into each Brompton. And for every bike we ship, we know whose work went into each stage of

its manufacture. In the context of today’s bike industry, our approach is extraordinarily rare, but it is

the only way to ensure the necessary quality on our hand-built bicycles.

There are no short cuts to quality and everyone who works here – brazers, assemblers, office staff

and engineers alike – all have an overriding commitment to it. We are proud of our attention to detail,

of our emphasis on making robust products that simply work. And we all use a Brompton so we

know how the bikes should be, and why quality matters.

CHOOSING A BROMPTON

A Brompton will easily become part of your daily life, but it helps if it is built around your needs. As everyone’s

requirements are different, we have developed many options to make your Brompton just right for you

and the kind of cycling you intend to do. Ride position, gearing, luggage, Superlight componentry, lighting and

other parts can all be selected to suit, and the colour options allow you to personalise it further.

We call it B-spoke; our commitment to letting you choose exactly the Brompton you want.

We know that all this choice can be as overwhelming as it is unusual among bike companies; all told, there

are some 150 million possible configurations, not counting the luggage options. But there’s really nothing to

it, and it will almost certainly enhance your Brompton ownership. Moreover, a B-spoke bike will feature only

those components you want so may well be cheaper than a bike your dealer happens to have in stock. And

there is absolutely no premium for having a bike “B-spoked”.

You’ll find the B-spoke options set out over the following pages. You might value the functionality of hub gears

and mudguards more than you mind the extra weight; you may prefer the individuality of a rarely-seen colour

combination or the practicality of a bike cover or item of luggage; the choices are yours. Designed by you, a

B-spoke bike is more likely to give you exactly what you want.

If you’re not sure where to begin, some staff and friends of Brompton explain their bike choices in the pages

that follow the B-spoke options. And our so-called Key Models towards the back show some of our most

popular configurations, even if they only offer a glimpse of our full range.

There are three members of the Brompton family – the S, M

and P Types; each has distinct handlebars designed for different

styles of riding and use.

The base bike is a Brompton S1E, fitted with a standard seat

pillar and Brompton Kevlar tyres, weighing 10.17kg. The options

that follow either add to that base weight (more gears,

rear rack), or subtract from it (Superlight frame, Kojak tyres),

to give the weight of the B-spoked bike.

There are four options as

far as gears go; and each of

these can be lowered (or

raised) to suit your riding

style and terrain.

1 Speed

Light, simple and without clutter,

using our special free-hub: for

the purist.

B-SPOKE YOUR BROMPTON

S Type

The straight, low bars of the S

Type (grip height 935mm) offer

a sporty ride position and a rigid,

lightweight, positive feel. The

pay-off is less room for front

luggage, but then the S Type was

not conceived as a touring bike.

2 Speed (+188g)

One gear for hills and starting

off, one for cruising. Based on

the unique Brompton derailleur

system, with near perfect chainalignment,

this is the best set-up

for flexibility and portability. All

you need for cycling around

town.

M Type

The distinctive shape of the

M Type’s handlebars has been

used on the Brompton since the

outset: the ride is more upright

(height 1015mm), with excellent

control, but a little heavier than

the S Type (by 58g). The M Type

is the all-rounder in our range,

as much at home in the city

as on a country lane, and with

plenty of room for luggage at

the front.

3 Speed (+738g)

The BSR [Brompton Standard

Range] is an updated version

of the classic Sturmey Archer

hub in an aluminium alloy shell,

three well-spaced gears. These

are fully enclosed for reliability,

and changing gear couldn’t be

simpler; a popular choice for everyday

cycling.

P Type

The P Type was designed with

the touring cyclist in mind – two

positions (height 1033mm and

880mm) offer the rider some

variety; the lower angled grips

present an aerodynamic profile,

the upper grips provide upright

control, ideal in traffic. The consequence

of this flexibility is

weight: the handlebars are 326g

heavier than the S Type’s.

6 Speed (+920g)

The combination of the highlyefficient

BWR [Brompton Wide

Range] hub with our own derailleur

system gives six evenlyspaced

gears. Control with the

two triggers is easy and, with

its low transmission losses and

wide range, this multi-gear system

is the right choice for touring

and for riding in hilly areas.

FRAME MUDGUARDS & RACK

Version E

Going without mudguards lends the bike a

sharper appearance and is also the lightest and

least expensive option, but there are drawbacks:

the folded bike is not as stable, there’s no pump

and of course no protection from any water or

dirt on the road.

Version L (+285g)

Equipped with mudguards, essential

for non-fair-weather cyclists.

ALL-STEEL FRAME

On all Bromptons, steel is used for the main frame and handlebar stem. The steel

gives rigidity to the vital link between handlebar and pedals, which is the key to

good handling. All-steel Bromptons also feature a rear triangle, front fork and seat

pillar made of steel.

Version R (+430g)

Whether or not you have front luggage, a carrier on the bike can be

useful. The die-cast aluminium rack comes with shock cords and can

easily manage loads of up to 10kg.

SUPERLIGHT FRAME

(-790g to -1050g, depending on Version and seat pillar length)

The Superlight option offers significant weight savings and will appeal particularly if

you expect to carry the bike regularly.

SEAT HEIGHT COLOURS

B-SPOKE YOUR BROMPTON

Whether your Brompton will go on big tours or small trips, our colour palette allows you to

stamp your personality on your bike. There is of course no weight penalty associated with

specifying an individual colour scheme, and opting for “non-standard” colours is kept deliberately

affordable.

On a bike with an all-steel frame you can choose either to have it finished in one colour or two,

with the extremities and main frame contrasting; the only exception is the Raw Lacquer option,

which is only available for the whole frame, not in combination.

The titanium parts on Superlight bikes are not painted, so only one colour choice is possible

(for the main frame and handlebar stem).

For an all-steel bike the handlebar

stem is the same colour as

the bike’s extremities; in the

case of a Superlight bike, the

handlebar stem is the same colour

as the bike’s main frame.

N.B. Please consider the colours

employed here as indicative

only; colours on a paper

form can not match exactly

those found on a metal bike.

Brompton offers three seat

pillar lengths to ensure the

right fit. Aluminium seat pillars

are supplied in place of

steel versions with Superlight

bikes.

REAR SUSPENSION TYRES

SADDLE

Brompton Saddle

Sporty, comfortable, practical, this high-quality unisex saddle

has been designed by Brompton specifically for our bikes. A

moulded grip under the nose facilitates carrying, and the ingenious

and incredibly light Brompton Pentaclip allows stepless

adjustment of the saddle angle.

Brompton Kevlar

Our standard tyre is exceptionally free-running,

durable yet light. The Kevlar belt under the tread

almost eliminates punctures. Finished with reflective

sidewalls as standard.

Suspension is important

on a small-wheeled bike.

Ours is provided by a polyurethane

block between

the main and rear frames;

lightweight and effective,

it smoothes out the lumps

and bumps en route, while

the inherent damping

avoids excessive “bounce”.

Two levels of resistance

are available, to suit body

weight and riding style:

Standard Suspension

Fine for many users, particularly

lighter people and those who

ride and pedal smoothly.

Brooks B17 Special (+217g) & Brooks B17S Special (+169g)

This beautiful traditional saddle will give years of comfortable cycling, the leather moulding with

time to the rider. Finished with hand-hammered copper rivets, copper rails, and fitted with the

Brompton Pentaclip for stepless adjustment, this old favourite is available in men’s and women’s

versions.

Schwalbe Marathon

(+144g) Heavier than the Brompton tyre and noticeably

slower, but it offers even better grip and is

solidly-built, with a Kevlar belt and a thicker sidewall.

Finished with reflective sidewalls.

Firm Suspension

Possibly more suitable for

those weighing over 80kg,

those who cycle more aggressively

and those prepared

to sacrifice some comfort in

return for a more responsive

ride.

Schwalbe Kojak

(-232g) The Kojak is the fastest tyre we’ve ever fitted

on the Brompton; light and puncture-resistant

(thanks to a RaceGuard strip), a Kevlar bead also

allows it to be folded, making it easy to pack as a

spare. Finished with reflective sidewalls.

Our lighting systems are

designed for use with our

bikes and are safe from

damage in the folded package.

Any of our lighting options

can be fitted to any

bike, though fitting a hub

dynamo to a Superlight bike

will mean the loss of the

“extra-light” front wheel.

B-SPOKE YOUR BROMPTON

Battery Lighting

(+158g) The LED rear lamp with integral reflectors is designed especially for Brompton and gives a good bright light: this stays

fixed to the bike. At the front is the neat yet powerful S-Sun 3-LED lamp, easily removed for folding with a quick-release. Batteries

are included.

Shimano Hub

Dynamo Lighting

(+446g) Hub dynamos offer a

very reliable lighting solution,

and this hub dynamo, specifically

adapted for the Brompton

by Shimano, offers very

good performance at a keen

price. Features include a Busch

& Müller halogen front lamp

and a stand light function at

the rear.

SON Hub

Dynamo Lighting

(+236g) The Son hub is beautifully

engineered, highly efficient,

and will give years of

reliable service. This option

features a powerful Busch &

light-sensing function

and a stand light function at

the front as well as the rear.

WEIGHING IT ALL UP

For all the options and B-spoke possibilities, the question we are asked most often at bike shows is, “How

much do they weigh?”

Weight matters; people don’t buy bikes to save on a barbell. But it isn’t everything. Ride quality, alignment,

efficiency and reliability are all likely to prove more important in use, yet are often overlooked by a fixation

on weight. And the compactness and balance of the folded package is as important as weight in determining

how easy a folded bike is to carry.

We are constantly striving for new ways to reduce the weight of our bikes – our products are, after all, famous

for their portability. But removing weight is not the only concern, and certainly not something we do at all

costs. We could incorporate many lightweight materials into our bikes, but those that don’t already feature

have been rejected for shortcomings in longevity, reliability or robustness. We want our bikes to stand the

test of time, and robustness sometimes simply weighs more.

Finally, not all bikes are weighed equally, so treat brochure data with caution... Brompton uses true weights,

meaning we weigh our bikes with pedals and wheels/tyres attached; if mudguards are fitted, we weigh those

too... We believe that you want to know how much your bike really weighs, not how much it weighs if we

remove some parts.

P.S. The answer to the question is: “Actual weight depends on model and configuration, but ranges between

9kg to 12.5kg, or 20 to 28lbs.”

KEY MODELS

of our front luggage; the rear

rack offers useful additional

carriage possibilities, though

the contents must obviously

be removed before ‘parking’

and folding.

Rack Sack

With stiffened sides and builtin

Velcro straps to secure it,

the Rack Sack is purpose-designed

for the Brompton rear

rack, offering a very secure,

shower-proof solution.

Capacity 16 litres; comes supplied

with a shoulder strap.


Folded size:

585mm wide x 565mm high x 270mm deep

Warranty

If your bicycle has a manufacturing defect, we will replace the defective part free

of charge if we are notified within five years (in the case of the frame) or two

years (in the case of other parts) of the date of first purchase of the bicycle.

The Brompton is for use on roads and well-made paths. It is not designed for

cross-country riding: this can overstress the frame, and the tyres and wheels are

unsuitable. For full warranty terms and conditions please refer to the website or

your owner’s manual. To activate your warranty please register your bike in the

My Brompton section of the Brompton website.
