Product Description

Details

Brompton H6L 2017

H6L is the Brompton folding bike with the highest handlebar height and the widest range of gears, plus it comes ready to roll with mudguards fitted.

Brompton classify each model by its handlebar type, its gearing and whether or not it has mudguards and a rear rack, hence H6L.

H6L

  • '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 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.
  • '6' refers to its BWR [Brompton Wide Range] gearing which combines a 3-speed hub gear with a simple derailleur which moves the chain between 2-cogs to give you a decent range of 6 evenly spaced gears.
  • 'L' is Brompton code for coming ready fitted with mudguards.

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
