A cycling legend, the British made Brompton sets the standards for folding bikes. Often imitated, but never bettered in our opinion. The clever bit is the characteristic "flip" of its back wheel under the frame, for both parking and folding. This allows for the inclusion of rear suspension, and thus high-pressure tyres. The net result is a bike that folds better and faster than anything else on the market. Low weight, a short wheelbase, small wheels and light steering also make it a very quick and agile machine. Indeed, it will ride better than most large wheelers. 

Though many of our customers do serious mileage on them, the Brompton is best suited to the city…
where property values put a premium on space its folded footprint is negligible; where traffic congestion reduces average speeds to less than 15mph, its light handling and fast acceleration gives it a decided advantage; where life is fast, its quick fold and versatility allows it to integrate with bus, train and taxi.

It is above all a supremely practical utility bike and has an excellent luggage carrying system.

If your cycling needs are for shorter frequent trips such as commuting and shopping; if you need to fold frequently (some commuters will have to fold it 8 times a day); if you want to wear conventional clothing - the Brompton has a low crossbar and a chain that sits inside the fold... then get a Brompton.

Brompton S2LX 2017

The Brompton S2LX is Brompton's ultimate sporty lightweight and also the lightest folding bike we currently sell. Get this if you want the lightest and prefer to keep things simple. Titanium forks and rear frame will save lots of weight. The two speed derailleur will also save weight over models with more gears, as well as being more mechanically efficient (you will notice less drag when the bike freewheels), and simpler to maintain. The two speeds are well chosen too - providing you with a starting gear that's also good for mild gradients and a comfortable cruising gear. It's debatable whether such a bike needs the extra overdrive gear that a three speed provides (with extra weight) - this writer thinks not. The ' S' bar will obviously give you a more sporty riding position too. The optional front luggage system offers a great choice in Brompton bags and panniers, which should cover any of your day-to-day needs. And for riding after dark, Brompton battery lights and dynamo lights are available. The price shown above is for the bike in any colour except the special premium colours.

Lightweight but heavy duty, the S2LX will be up to the challenge of heavy commutes in most condtions.
