2023 P LINE URBAN - MID HANDLEBAR
The 2023 Brompton P Line Urban folding bike is the lightest bike in Brompton’s lineup. Offering a weight savings of just under 2lbs from the C Line Explore, the P Line Urban is particularly appealing if you expect to carry the bike regularly. High-strength titanium alloy is used in place of chromoly steel for the rear triangle and front fork, reducing road chatter and making the bike far more comfortable to ride, and the lighter foam grips, alloy headset (versus steel) and titanium fender-stays shave grams in only the most practical ways. Available in your choice of metallic Midnight Black or Storm Grey.
The P Line Urban model has a 4-speed external derailleur that offers a similar gear ratio to the internal Sturmey Archer 3-speed hub, but weighs only 60 grams. A redesigned suspension block transfers maximum pedalling power to the drivetrain without energy losses. The all-new wheelset is Brompton's lightest and sturdiest yet and the new hex-key axles make removing the wheels for roadside maintenance much easier. The new Superlight saddle features carbon rails to reduce weight while maintaining the Brompton underframe grip to make carrying the folded bike easy and comfortable. This bike comes with Continental Contact Urban tires, designed for speed in cities. An optional Front Carrier Block lets you customize your bike with a wide range of Brompton bags.
This bike uses the Mid Handlebar which is Brompton’s bestseller and the sweet spot for short riders seeking an upright ride or average-height riders wanting a bike that is both efficient and comfortable. Fenders keep you and your bike looking presentable and make entry to shops, museums, and theatres a lot easier as a result. The bike is fitted with a Standard seatpost but can be swapped to Extended or Telescopic seatposts depending on your height.
Lastly, moving the bike when it's folded is much easier! A new dual-locking system keeps the bike folded when the seatpost is up, allowing you to navigate tight spaces. Redesigned rolling wheels are taller than the standard Brompton issue to make travelling over uneven ground easier.

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.
