The Brompton S2L 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.
For many, the Brompton S2L 2013 Folding Bike is the prettiest Brompton, and it is the lightest. The grips are lower and further forward than on the M Type, giving a sporty riding position which complements the positive feel of these bikes. Brompton's derailleur system turns a single-speed into a nimble 2-speed bike without the weight of a gear hub; the result is a light bike that can handle most journeys. The key S Type is the S2L (also available as S2L-X).
