2023 ELECTRIC C LINE EXPLORE - MID HANDLEBAR
The new 2023 Brompton Electric C Line Explore is the smart, fast, and reliable way to get around and explore your city. The ultimate electric folding bike, it's designed for multi-modal travel to make your commute effortless. New for 2023, the chromoly steel frame can be finished in eight colours from classics to vibrant pop tones with all-black componentry - including the all-new Matcha Green. For a premium look, choose the Black Lacquer or Flame Lacquer finish which is made using only the best frames where the hand brazing is visible.
The front hub motor has been designed by Brompton, for Brompton and is powered by a 300Wh battery for 40-80km of range before needing a recharge. 3 unique levels of pedal assistance let you choose how much extra push you need - from a light tailwind all the way to downhill speed on an uphill climb. The bike's folding brilliance means it can be brought indoors at your destination to keep it safe from thieves.
At just 40.3 lbs without accessories, the Brompton Electric C Line Explore is one of the lightest e-bikes on the market. The 2.9 kg / 6.39 lb battery can be disengaged from the bike frame for easier travel, charging and storage. The bike also rides beautifully without e-assistance - just like a normal Brompton - for days when you want to push yourself and ride unassisted, or during international travel without your battery along for the journey.
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. As the most versatile option, the Explore model uses the 3-speed Sturmey Archer BSR 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. Schwalbe Marathon Racer tires provide a zippy ride and a Brompton Electric front-bag mount is compatible with the included 1.5L Essentials Bag or the 20L City Bag Large (sold separately).
Supplied with front and rear fenders to keep you dry in bad weather and built-in e-bike lights to provide excellent visibility on dark roads or nocturnal commutes, this bike is ready for any urban adventure!

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.
