Product Description


Brompton S6L Nickel Edition '17

This bike's super-hard nickel-plated finish helps create a Brompton that is even better looking and more resistant to dings, scratches and the elements.

Why nickel?
Nickel isn't just about bestowing the Brompton a brilliant silvery finish. The 50 micron nickel plating is proven in deep sea drilling applications as being exceptionally corrosion resistant and hard wearing - perfect attributes for an all-weather bicycle frame.

Brompton S6L

  • 'S' stands 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)
  • S bars therefore contribute to a nippier more aero ride
  • '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
  • Every Brompton now comes with a simple Saddle Height Insert which automatically resets the seatpin at the correct height whenever you unfold the bike to ride it

Continual Evolution
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 as witnessed with this Nickel Edition Brompton.

For 2017, Brompton have enhanced the ergonomics of every bike as follows

  • More intuitive underbar gear shifters
  • Its new lock-on grips are lighter weight and they'll never slip out of position
  • Saddle-mountable light - a special mount at the top of the seatpost makes a perfect perch for a USB-rechargeable Cat Eye LED rear light
  • Mounted on the brake lever, the sweet-toned brass bell is always within easy reach
  • You can mount the bell on the right or LH lever, whichever is more convenient
