Product Description


Brompton H3R 2017

The H3R is the Brompton folding bike that offers the highest handlebar height, and it comes with 3-speed hub gears, full mudguards and a rear rack.

Brompton classify each model by its handlebar type, its gearing and whether or not it has mudguards and a rear rack, hence H3R.


  • 'H' stand for an H-Type Brompton. By locating the handlebar hinge 3cm higher, an H-Type Brompton's handlebar grips are positioned 5.5cm (2 inches) higher than they would be if you rode a Brompton with their standard M-Type bars. The grips of an H-Type bar are 107cm (42 inches) high, compared with the grips of an M-type bar (which are 101.5cm/40 inches above ground level). This 2 inches can make all the difference if you are above average height and/or you suffer back or neck pain on account of riding a bike with bars that are too low for comfort.
  • '3' refers to its simple, low maintenance 3-speed hub gear.
  • 'R' is Brompton code for coming ready fitted with mudguards and rack.

New for 2017
Brompton's continued growth and success is based on starting with a great idea - what is generally considered the best folding bike design - and then continually developing it. For 2017, Brompton have upgraded the ergonomics of every bike as follows:

  • Lock-on handlebar grips stay put, they will never slip out of position and they're lighter weight
  • Brass Bell - this sweet-toned bell is mounted on the brake lever so it's always within easy reach
  • You can mount the bell on the right or LH brake lever - whichever is more convenient
  • Underbar gear shifters are more intuitive to operate
  • Saddle Light Mount - a special mount at the top of the seatpost provides a perfect perch for a rear light
