The latest front bags from Brompton display their penchant for cleverly engineered design solutions that recall the ingenuity of their bike’s famous fast fold.
With a Brompton Front Carrier Block fitted to the head tube of the bike, as shown here, your Brompton is ready to carry any of the bags featured below.
The Front Carrier Block is a mounting bracket that offers instant, secure bag fitting, and equally fast bag release. The genius of this system is that the bike’s head tube takes the weight of the bag laden with whatever you carry in it. This unique mounting system means that you and your bike are barely aware of the weight you’re transporting. Compare with carrying a 20-litre bag full of; say for illustrative purposes, bottles of wine on your back and you get the idea.
Front luggage that doesn’t compromise steering. Imagine that.
Unlike a conventional bike bag or basket mounted to the handlebars, or panniers clipped to a fork-mounted rack, Brompton front bags don’t make the steering heavier. In this respect, this is probably the best front bike bag system ever devised, and yet another reason to consider a Brompton.
Loads of options
Brompton front bags are available in a range of shapes and sizes that would go with even the most stylish Nickel Edition Brompton (pictured here, ready fitted with the Front Carrier Block).
Talking of looking stylish, every bag featured below comes with a shoulder strap, making it eminently wearable off the bike too.
Available in Khaki Waxed Cotton (shown) or Grey/Black/Lime Green
Available in Yellow or Black (as shown)
Available in Black/Lagoon Blue (shown), Black/Lime Green or Black
Available in Black/Berry Crush (shown), Lagoon Blue or Black
