Product Description


Brompton S6L 2018

The Brompton S6L model stands out for its low flat bars which make for a nippier ride and its wide range 6-speed gearing for hilly terrain.

Brompton classify each model by its handlebar type, its gearing and whether or not it has mudguards and a rear rack, hence S6L.

Brompton S6L
The Brompton S6L is the flat bar, six-speed version of Britain's most famous folding bike. It comes especially recommended if you are looking for a faster, nippier folding bike with a wider (33 - 100 inch) spread of gears that can cope with varied terrain.

  • 'S' stand for S-Type Brompton. This means that it comes with flat (as in zero rise) bars. These flat (AKA straight) bars position the handlebar grips 935mm above ground level (cf the M-type Brompton whose U-shaped bars take the grips up to 1,015mm high).
  • '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 two cogs to give you a decent range of 6 evenly-spaced gears..
  • 'L' is Brompton code for coming ready fitted with mudguards.
