My first experience with electric bikes was in Bern, Switzerland. I'll never forget this amazing ride and how we would never have even thought to try it if it hadn't been for our electric bikes.

The Brompton P-Type handlebar is made for the rider that enjoys touring or riding very long distances. This handlebar offers two gripping positions, one up high and one down low, for a more relaxed or aggressive ride, as you call it. The brake levers are only available up top, so keep this in mind. We don't have many of the P-Type handlebar models, but you can get a bike with this style handlebar by ordering one through our custom Brompton builder.
The Brompton S-Type models are built for speed. They offer a lower, sportier straight handlebar, which makes for a more aggressive riding style with less wind resistance. If you're looking for a road bike type of ride, this is the way to go.
