We are a bike company that makes
bikes, not a bike brand that markets or
assembles products made by others.
WE ARE BROMPTON, WE ARE
DIFFERENT
We think that designs and innovations should
be built to last, just like our bikes. We believe in
making practical, reliable machines, designed and
manufactured with real life, not the showroom,
in mind. We refuse to design obsolescence
into our bikes; innovations are designed to be
retrofitted on the hundreds of thousands of
older Bromptons still in daily use. We believe
in getting things right rather than getting them
easily or first. We don’t build bikes for anyone
else, and no one builds bikes for us... our
reputation depends on it.
BROMPTON history 1975-2012
Andrew Ritchie starts designing
a folding bike in his flat,
overlooking the
Brompton Oratory
in South
Kensington,
London.
4 1975
The first Bromptons are
fairly crude but fold neatly
and conveniently into a
tiny package. It is a
remarkable step
forward in folding
bike design.
1977
Andrew begins canvassing industry
in search of a licensee but no one is
convinced that a market
exists for such an
unusual machine, and
the search ends.
1978
First Brompton bikes produced
to order by Andrew; low volume
production
begins then
ends for lack
of capital.
1981-83
Julian Vereker, founder
of Naim Audio, joins
Brompton having
first discovered
the bikes a few
years before.

OUR FACTORY
THE DESIGN
Our factory is at the heart of what we make, and who
we are. Every Brompton is built here from scratch, in
West London. 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. There are no
short cuts to excellence and everyone who works
here has an overriding commitment to it.
All Bromptons share the same frame geometry,
the result of 35 years of constant innovation and
improvement, going back to the prototypes developed
by Andrew Ritchie in his bedroom in 1975. Now, as
then, the goal is to create the perfect combination of
ride quality and compact portability, with neither treated
as an afterthought.
Every Brompton folds down into a small package 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. Just as remarkable
as the fold is the Brompton’s ride quality. Excellent frame
rigidity and precision engineering ensure that the cyclist’s
efforts are efficiently converted into a responsive, quick
ride, while a full-sized wheelbase delivers stability at
speed. But to be a truly personal transport solution,
it should be built around your needs. B-spoke™ is
our commitment to letting you choose exactly the
Brompton you want; the options are set out towards the
back of this brochure, and we feature six bikes over the
intervening pages that give some sense of how flexible
the Brompton is to your needs and preferences.
OUR BIKES
The Brompton tears up the transport rule book and
puts you back in charge of your journeys; whether
you use public or private transport, or neither, a
Brompton allows you to rethink, vary and adapt your
journeys at will. It sets you free from the constraints
imposed by modern life.
We think of it as personal transport, a mode
of travel you take with you on trains, planes and
automobiles as much as it carries you on cycle
journeys. At your destination, it fits in a cupboard,
under a desk or in a cloakroom, safe from theft and
the elements, ready for your next journey.

For many people, an S2L-X is the perfect
Brompton, the ideal balance between
portability and versatility.
FAST & FUN
Seth wanted a fun, quick runabout. “I’ve done 10-mile journeys on it, no problem, but usually I’m combining short rides with travelling by
train so it had to be light and uncomplicated.” The S2L-X certainly fits that bill, with a two-gear solution that will be fine for most cycling
and the obvious advantages of Superlight componentry. “I don’t tend to carry a lot on my bike as I don’t want anything to slow me down,
but I have a Mini O Bag in case I want to take along my camera.”
MINI O BAG
Small and streamlined, but still waterproof; perfect
for smaller loads. Seth’s choice is green/black.

SMART
COMMUTER
Emma works in town and cycles through fashionable Notting Hill. “I have taken it away on weekends but my bike is mainly for commuting.
I wanted a smart, elegant bicycle to go to work on, one that allowed me to take in the sights and sounds of my city.” Eazy Wheels are fitted
to save on carrying the bike, and the SON hub dynamo lighting provides exceptional visibility when riding on darker winter days. “I needed
a bag as I didn’t want to ride with a rucksack on my back; I ended up choosing a white O Bag as it’s big enough for a laptop and papers,
but also waterproof. And I chose a Brooks saddle to give a final classic touch to my stylish bike.”

perfect for year-round commuting.

The P Type was designed with cycle touring in mind, especially
when paired with 6 gears and a rack; the multiple grip positions,
wide gear range and luggage capacity lend themselves to long trips.
GLOBAL
TRAVELLER
It’s at the top end of the Brompton weight range, but the extra pounds make his bike truly versatile, according to Andreas. “Being tall, I wanted an H or P type as
I prefer to ride upright; the P Type’s different grip positions sealed it for me because I want to use the bike on long cycling/camping holidays.That demands lots of
kit, so the combination of T Bag and rear rack/Rack Sack was an obvious choice.” Marathon tyres add robustness to the bike, while the Shimano Hub Dynamo
system ensures he will not have to stop riding at dusk. Completing the touring package, the new Brompton Toolkit will help keep Andreas in the saddle as he
tackles the rolling hills of the Dordogne, while the cover and its saddle bag are useful when travelling with the bike. “I also use it to cycle to work; things like the
rear rack add weight but it’s still perfectly portable over short distances and, for anything longer, I just roll the bike along on the Eazy Wheels.”

Although many prefer the “clip-on/clip-off ” convenience
of our front luggage, the rear rack offers useful additional
carriage possibilities, though the contents must obviously
be removed before ‘parking’ and folding. With stiffened
sides and built-in Velcro straps to secure it, the Rack

Awarded a Taipei Cycle Design and Innovation Award
in 2012, the ingenious toolkit fits into a case that slots
neatly inside the front frame, held in place with magnets
and a moulded rubber grip. It contains ten tools to help
you adjust and maintain your Brompton: a ring spanner
to remove wheel nuts, innovative interlocking tyre levers
(patent pending) to remove tyres and self-adhesive
patches to repair punctured inner tubes. A reversible
ratchet wrench drives four double ended tool bits, and
the tyre levers include two sizes of spanner.

4 tyred rollers (2 when fitted to a Brompton without
a rear rack) with industrial bearings allow the folded
bike to be pushed around smoothly. A rubber bung

For Angela, it was all about making the bike as light as possible. “I didn’t worry about having loads of gears as most of my riding is pretty flat. I was
more concerned about carrying the bike up the stairs to my apartment or in and out of trams and trains, so I wanted it as light as possible. That
meant going for the Superlight option and saving weight (and money) on the gearing and mudguards.”

URBAN
ClIMBER
The ride position of the H Type felt right to Antonia from the off; like the bikes she had used from childhood in Germany, the upright riding
style was perfect for everyday cycling. But it took some convincing that the small wheels and gearing could cope with the hills near her
home. “That was my biggest concern; I expected it to be a nightmare at the end of a long day, but I was amazed – and still am – how well
my bike copes with the hills.” The mudguards and Shimano hub dynamo lighting ensure that Antonia’s bike in London, like her bike in Berlin,
is ready to ride at any time, in all weathers. “I got the O Bag after it rained solidly for 2 months this summer,” [she’s not joking] “But I had
the Eazy Wheels fitted from the outset; it’s not heavy for a bike, but I prefer rolling over carrying it when folded.”

gears but they had to be enclosed, to avoid the issues you get with knocked and dirty derailleurs; it had to have mudguards so I could use

All-STEEl OPTION
On all Bromptons, steel is used for the main

There are four members of the Brompton family – the S, M, P and H Types – designed for different styles of riding and
MODEL
distinguished by their handlebars.
S TYPE
Straight, low bars (grip height
935mm) offering a sporty
ride position and a lightweight,
positive feel. The pay-off is less
room for front luggage.
M TYPE
The original Brompton ‘look’,
offering a more upright ride
(height 1015mm), at the cost of
a little more weight. The allrounder in the range, with plenty
of room for luggage at the front.
H TYPE
Combining the classic looks of
the M Type with a markedly
more upright riding position
(height 1072mm), albeit at the
cost of additional weight, the H
Type is for those who like to
travel with unhurried style.
There are four gearing options, and each of these can be lowered or raised to suit your riding style and terrain. Full details,

stays; an aluminium alloy headset and
extra-light front wheel also feature. No
pump is fitted with this option. Titanium’s natural properties
also offer increased comfort over longer journeys.
P TYPE
Designed with the touring cyclist in
mind, two positions (height 1033mm
and 880mm) offer the rider a choice
between an aerodynamic profile and
more upright control, ideal in traffic.

EXTENDED SEATPOST Offers an additional 60mm of elevation, but
leaves the saddle correspondingly higher when folded.
TELESCOPIC SEATPOST Offers up to 175mm more elevation than a
standard post but the saddle projects only 20mm above the folded package.
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

Fine for many, particularly
lighter people and those
who ride and pedal
smoothly.
FIRM

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.
Our lighting systems are specifically designed for our bikes and are safe from damage in the folded package. Any of our lighting

Whatever plans you have for your bike, our colour palette allows you to stamp your personality on
it wherever you travel. The no-surcharge colours for 2013 are Black, White, Cobalt Blue and Orange,
and opting for surcharged colours is kept deliberately affordable.
On a bike with an all-steel frame you can opt for one colour or two, with extremities and main
frame contrasting; the one exception is Raw Lacquer, which is only available for the whole frame, not
in combination. On Superlight bikes, the titanium parts are unpainted, so only one colour may be
chosen (for the main frame and handlebar stem).
