What can you customise on your Brompton?

Handlebars

M type
Brompton’s most neutral position not too upright not too sporty but it keeps the bike agile without compromising on comfort. A great all round riding position to cover any Brompton adventure. 

H type
Originally designed to be the handlebar of choice for the taller rider. This is why Evans Cycles equips all our H type bikes with a telescopic seat post. The H type’s taller stem and higher rise bar can also provide a more upright ride and comfort for those who require it.

S type
The sportiest handlebar on offer from Brompton. Featuring a flat bar and lower stem height this helps you put the hammer down and makes the bike super manoeuvrable to cut through the traffic.

P type
With its butterfly shape offers the most flexibility for your Brompton. Whether you want to sit upright and cruise, race across town to the next meeting or you have a longer distance to ride, the P Type has it covered.

Gears

Standard 6 Speed
Six speed standard ratio gearing.

6 speed +8%
Raised gears are suitable for flatter areas and higher speed riding.

6 speed -12%
Lower gears are useful for hilly areas and lower speed riding

Mudguards

No Mudguards
No mudguards, rack or pump. Going without mudguards looks good and is also the lightest and least expensive option; but the bike is less stable when folded, there’s no protection from water and dirt on the road.

Version L - inc. mudguards but no rack
Equipped with mudguards and pump (only for steel frames), essential for non-fair weather cyclists.

Version R – inc. mudguards and rack
Fitted with mudguards, rack and pump (pump only for steel frames). 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 10kg.

Frame Material

Steel
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 and front fork made of steel.

Super Light
Offering weight savings of up to 1kg, this option will appeal particularly if you expect to carry the bike regularly. High-strength titanium alloy is used in place of steel for the rear triangle and front fork, as well as on the mudguard stays; an aluminium alloy headset also features, and no pump is fitted.

Saddles

Brompton
Comfortable, practical and light: this high-quality unisex saddle has been designed by Brompton for our bikes. A moulded grip under the nose facilitates carrying, and the ingenious Brompton Pentaclip allows stepless adjustment of the saddle angle.

Brooks B17 Special Mens'
This traditional saddle will give years of comfortable cycling, the leather moulding with time to the rider. Finished with hand-hammered copper rivets, copper-plated metalwork, and fitted with the Brompton Pentaclip for stepless adjustment.

Brooks B17 Special Ladies'
This traditional saddle will give years of comfortable cycling, the leather moulding with time to the rider. Finished with hand-hammered copper rivets, copper-plated metalwork, and fitted with the Brompton Pentaclip for stepless adjustment.

Brompton Wide
Comfortable, practical and light: this high-quality unisex saddle has been designed by Brompton for our bikes. A moulded grip under the nose facilitates carrying, and the ingenious Brompton Pentaclip allows stepless adjustment of the saddle angle.

Saddle Height

Standard
For an inside leg of 33''/84cm and under. Our lightest and shortest seatpost but if your inside leg is more than 33”/84cm, you will almost certainly need a longer pillar.

Extended
For an inside leg of 33 - 35''/84 - 89cm. Offers an additional 60mm of elevation, but leaves the saddle correspondingly higher when folded.

Telescopic
For an inside leg of over 35''/90cm. Offers up to 175mm more elevation than a standard post but the saddle projects only 20mm above the folded package.

Suspension

Standard
Fine for many, particularly lighter people and those who ride and pedal smoothly. (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”.)

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. (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”.)

Lighting

Reflectors only
 

Battery lighting
At the front is a powerful Cateye Volt 300 USB rechargeable light, mounted on a custom bracket that does not interfere with the fold. The light is easily removable and comes with a USB charging cable. The rear lamp with integral reflector is a Brompton design, giving a bright light powered by two AAA batteries.
Please note: Consumers in Germany will receive a GVolt50 due to country regulations.

Shimano Hub Dynamo
Hub dynamos offer a very reliable lighting solution and this one, especially adapted for the Brompton by Shimano, offers very good performance at a keen price. Features include a Busch & Müller “Lyt B” LED front lamp and a stand-light function at the rear.

SON Hub Dynamo
The SON hub is beautifully engineered, highly efficient, and will give years of reliable service. A powerful Busch & Müller LED front lamp, featuring an automatic light-sensing function, and a stand-light function at the front as well as the rear, complete the premium package.

Tyres

Brompton Kevlar
Our standard tyre; durable yet light and with low rolling resistance. The Kevlar belt under the tread almost eliminates punctures. Finished with reflective siDewalls.

Schwalbe Kojak
The fastest tyre ever fitted on the Brompton; light and punctureresistant (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.

Schwalbe Marathon
Heavier than the Brompton tyre and noticeably slower, but is solidly-built, with Schwalbe's special Greenguard and a thicker sidewall for increased puncture resistance. Finished with reflective sidewalls.
