Product Description

City life. The night. Cycling through town and finding new routes. This has always been the inspiration for Brompton Black Edition.
Styled for urban living; this range features sleek black componentry complementing a selection of different colour ways - either understated, or ready to make a statement with a popping colour.

Handmade in small batches and available just a few times a year. Black Edition is inspired by riding in the city at night and new ways of seeing the familiar. The all-steel frame in Black Lacquer is powder-coated in-house at the Brompton London Factory. This black tinted lacquer lets the natural colour of the hand-brazed steel tubes show through. The result is a dark, lustrous finish that catches and reflects the light.

The bike features Gloss Black forks and rear-frame, and sleek all-black componentry. Hardware details such as screws, nuts and other small fittings are 'invisible' in matching black. With 2 gears, the C Line Urban is lighter to ride and carry than all other C Line models. And with one gear trigger, it's simple to use. Those that are up and down stairs, walking along platforms and in and out of lifts, will appreciate the benefits of this bike's Iower weight.

Due to supply issues, some specifications may alter from the listed items.

Occasionally, without notice, manufacturers change product design and/or specifications.

Brompton Bike Guide


Brompton Guide

Bromptons are the iconic folding bike. The basic design is the same on all bikes but there are many different options to choose from within the Brompton folding bike range. Unlike most other bikes sizing is based on seatpost and handlebar type rather than frame size. This guide will help you to choose the right Brompton bike for you.

New names.
Same great bikes.

Brompton folding bikes have been renamed to make choosing the right one a little easier. Each bike is listed with a name that shows its line, model and specification option.

For example:
Brompton C Line Explore with Rack High Handlebar, previously known as the H6R:
C Line - steel frame, mudguards, and folding pedals.
Explore model - 6-speed gearing and pump.
Options - high handlebar, and luggage rack.

See below for more information on the Bromton lines, models and options.

Brompton Electric

The Brompton Electric is the ultimate electric folding e bike. Smart, fast, and reliable way to get around and explore your city. Designed for comfortable riding and featuring an intelligent pedal assist that gives you that extra push when you need it, it is for all cyclists, whether it's helping you fly up hills or easing those longer journeys to and from work.

Just like the all-pedal-powered version, a Brompton Electric folds up to a third of its size, and when folded, a Brompton stays locked together, making an extremely compact package, a little larger than its wheels.

Accessories and components


Bromptons have a variety of ingenious luggage carrying solutions. As well as a rear luggage rack, the optional front carrier block allows you to carry up to 10Kg of luggage. This mounts onto the headtube rather than the handle bar so the added weight doesn’t affect the stability and handling of the bike. Brompton luggage is practical, stylish and made to last.

Brompton have a variety of luggage options. Either mounted to the headtube or to a rear luggage rack.

Other Brompton Accessories

As well as luggage, Brompton have a range of accessories designed specifically for their folding bikes. These include Cateye light sets with Brompton specific mounts, luggage mounting blocks, racks, mudguards, saddles and seatposts as well as spare parts.

Note: Bromptons from 2021 and earlier have a different naming convention. If you are looking at a 2021 Brompton bike, or if you would like to compare new models with older ones then read on.

2021 and Earlier Model Names

The basic characteristics of each Brompton bike from 2021 or earlier is summed up in the three characters of the model name. The first letter tells you which handlebar is fitted. Next is a number which tells you how many gears the bike has. The third letter tells you if the bike has mudguards and a rack. If there is an X as a fourth character, then the bike is a Superlight model with titanium parts.

e.g. the Brompton M3L has an M Type riser handlebar, three speed drivetrain and is fitted with mudguards

Brompton bikes have a variety of component choices to tailor your bike to your needs
