Owning a titanium Brompton isn't so much about having the lightest folding bike possible for the sake of lightweight itself, it's more about convenience. The ease of lifting a lighter bike into your car, carrying it up stairs, or maneuvering it folded up through a subway or bus greatly outweighs the exclusive lightness that comes from shaving 1.6 lbs off the bike.
The super-light Brompton features a titanium fork and rear triangle, lightweight headset, and titanium fender stays. All these together help reduce the weight while maintaining the strength and durability.

- Easy to carry and lift
- Lighter for air travel as checked luggage

- Exclusive matte grey titanium color for fork and rear triangle
- Titanium fork and rear triangle, lightweight headset, and titanium fender stays.
A Brompton is the perfect bicycle for the city, touring, traveling, and well...just about anything! It folds down to a portable, practical size so can be taken on other forms of public and private transport. It can also be taken inside homes, offices, bars so it is a lot less likely to be stolen.
Its ride position and agility are more than a match for conventional bicycles. Small wheels mean fast acceleration from red lights and increased maneuverability through busy streets.
It is tough and can take everything the city throws at it, every day. A steel frame, efficient and puncture resistant tires, handmade with high build quality and a design that has been refined over 25 years means Brompton bikes provide years of regular city use and beyond. They may not look tough, but never judge a book by its cover, this bike can be pushed to high limits and will last for years to come. Bromptons also have an array of front luggage that can all be applied to the same front carrier block, making the Brompton one of the best folding bikes to load up with cargo. We offer the largest stock in the US of these high quality folding bikes.
This bike has a regular Brompton S handlebar
. It gives that aggressive road bike riding position for more speed and quick handling. This bar is great for the quick city rider looking to push the pace through traffic and get to their destination fast.
The L version
Brompton is the most popular, and offers a front and rear mudguard set that helps keep you and your Brompton fresh and clean. The rear mudguard comes with a roller wheel to help support and roll the bike while its folded, giving it some added functionality while protecting your back from any spray. Smaller wheels tend to spray water higher, so the front mudguard has a large flap to prevent any spray on your legs as well. The two speed
Brompton is the perfect city bike. It keeps the weight of the bike low, while still offering a gear for speed and a gear for hills. The high gear is the same as a single speed, but with the nifty Brompton chain pusher you get to shift to a nice light gear for those hills. The two speed is a perfect blend of simplicity and functionality.
