The Brompton P6R Folding Bike. The Brompton range has been updated for 2013, they now come with a range of new components that have been manufactured in-house at Brompton, these updates include; New Brake Levers: these now have adjustable reach with improved grip, power and response, they look beautiful too! Wheels: The new rim is double-walled rather than single-walled, improving durability and performance. Handlebar Grips: Now black, with a smoother finish for a more comfortable ride. Brompton Tyres: Kevlar-lined for great durability as before, now all-black and with the Brompton logo to offer a sleeker look. Chain set; is now stiffer and stronger than ever before.
The multiple positions afforded by the P Type's handlebars are designed with the touring cyclist in mind. Although they are a little heavier than the M Type's handlebars, the lower grips, angled for comfort on longer stretches of road, allow the rider to get down out of the wind and deliver real power to the pedals; the upper grips provide a welcome contrast after a long stretch of riding and also give great control for manoeuvring in traffic. The key P Type is the P6R (also available as P6R-X EV181402) - a rear rack gives additional luggage-carrying capacity and the six well-spaced gears will handle almost all gradients encountered on a long ride.
