This Brompton C Line Explore folding bike is the classic All-Steel Folding Brompton people have known and loved for years, but in a limited new seasonal colour. Bumblebee yellow is bright, exciting  and fun and really stands out from the crowd.  The bike also benefits from other premium features including Brooks Cambium saddle, Brooks Cambium ergonomic grips and Schwalbe Marathon tires which have much better puncture protection. This stunning bike will be available in small numbers in July

The Brompton Explore model is geared to go further. It uses the 3-speed Sturmey Archer BWR hub combined with a 2-speed shifter for a combined 6 speeds. The wider gear ratio is designed to get you up the steepest hills and speeding along the flat open roads and a Front Carrier Block lets you customize your bike with a wide range of Brompton bags. 

This bike will be available Low handlebar,  a zippy, fast position, Mid handlebar for everyday riding or a High handlebar for a regal more comfortable position. Fenders keep you and your bike looking presentable and make entry to shops, museums, and theatres a lot easier as a result.

A BIT ABOUT BROMPTON: If you were to walk into the store and look at a Brompton we would say there are three things you should look for in a folding bike. All of them are fairly obvious. One, the bike should ride well - and, on a small wheeled bike that's tricky because there's a fine line between maneuverability (which is a virtue) and twitchiness (which is a vice). Two, the bike should fold well - otherwise you're blood pressure will rise and you'll curse the day you bought it. Third, it should be transportable, or highly storable - because that's the whole point, right?

Brompton is the only company we've seen that answers all three criteria - and believe us, we've tried every brand out there. The reason others can't compete is because Brompton has answered a fundamental engineering problem. If a bike is going to unfold to a large footprint (which takes the twitch out) then it is unfolding to a bigger bike - and by all logic, a bigger bike unfolded would be a bigger bike folded. So, it's pretty much true that for most folding bikes they either have great rideability but poor transportability or vice versa. And nearly all of them are a mess to fold.

Not Brompton. Brompton has designed the Platonic form of all folding bikes. The bike folds to the smallest size on the market, unfolds in a highly precise and easy manner, and has the same axle-to-axle footprint as a hybrid bike. How did they do this? By not only designing a clever frame, but also designing some 1200 proprietary parts that make everything fit - and fit perfectly. Oh, and nearly all of this is made in England. No wonder this bike has a cult following.
