Black Edition Bromptons available in April


Brompton, the U.K.’s iconic folding bike company, introduces its limited-production Brompton Black Edition this April. Limited to just 5,000 bikes worldwide, the Black Edition features exclusive black componentry as well as Brompton’s famous design detailing.

“From frame to accessory, the Brompton is probably the most customizable bike on the market,” said Katharine Horsman, Brompton general manager for North America. “Since introducing Brompton to U.S. customers a few years ago, we’ve become famous for our color combinations. This year we wanted to add something extra, so we came up with the Black Edition, a tribute to urban city night rides and all weather commutes.”

Available at a starting MSRP of $1,458, the Brompton Black Edition is available this April from select U.S. dealers and comes in S (flat), M (upright) and H (more upright) style handlebars with either two- or six-speed gear options. Several key components are matt black with main frame choices available in Black, White, Berry Crush, Lime Green and Lagoon Blue.


“I’m lucky that my job enables me to travel to many cities around the world,” said Brompton CEO Will Butler-Adams. “One of my favorite things to do is to cycle through cities at night, when the roads are often quieter and you see a different side to city life, lit up against the backdrop of the dark sky.

“City life at night was the inspiration behind the Black Edition; we were keen to try a sleek matt black Brompton mixed with pops of bright color, as well as the full black effect.”

Like all Brompton bicycles, the limited Black Edition model is hand made in Brompton’s London factory, brazed and made to exacting specifications and standards.

“We’ve already had enquiries from all over the world for the much anticipated Black Edition,” said Horsman. “It will be available only while supplies last.”
