Introducing the Brompton P Line: Next level frame. Next level componentry. A next level ride.

Get access to everything we publish when you sign up for Outside+.

Since its introduction in 2005, the Brompton Superlight has  given Brompton users the option for a lighter bike to get from A-B. By using  different materials in its construction, the Superlight emphasised the Brompton’s  ability to be folded down and carried, saving owners time carrying between  destinations. With a lighter bike, the performance increased when unfolded as  well, for a lighter bike was faster.

Now, for 2022, in line with Brompton simplifying its bike categories, the Brompton  Superlight has transformed into the Brompton P Line. Featuring an entirely new  titanium rear frame and lightweight componentry, the meticulously engineered  Brompton P Line weighs just 9.65kg, nearly 2kg less than the Brompton C Line  model, delivering lightweight performance, folded and unfolded.

Next level frame:

The titanium rear frame and forks are 700 grammes lighter than the all-steel equivalent, just as strong, and the naturally, shock-absorbing titanium smooths out city roads. The redesigned suspension block maximises efficiency and responsiveness by shifting pedal power to improve control and handling performance.

Enhanced portability:

Performance doesn’t stop when the bike is folded. The new dual-locking seat post system has two positions, fully down for storing or halfway up for rolling and the larger, lighter rolling wheels glide over uneven ground or through tight busy spaces.

Superlight, compact gear system

Designed by Brompton, the patent-pending gear set is fine-tuned for city riding. The 4-speed system includes a 60-gram derailleur, cleverly engineered to fit inside the compact fold and providing a similar ratio to the 3- speed hub gear and 60% more than the 2-speed.

All-new wheelset

The lightest, sturdiest wheelset yet from Brompton, featuring a new rear hub designed ground-up to accommodate the new 4-speed gear set. Tested in all weathers for hundreds of hours, the wheelset stands up to the harshness of the city. Fitted with hex key axles and a new hanger mount, for quick and easy roadside maintenance.

Will Carleysmith, Chief Design & Engineering Officer said:  

“With it’s titanium rear frame and forks, the Brompton Superlight has always  offered a superior user experience than it’s all-steel equivalent. The new Brompton  P Line is a leap forward from the Superlight, it is faster to ride, lighter to carry and  easier to move around the city in every way. Significant weight savings and  performance improvements have been achieved through the entirely redesigned  rear frame and lightweight components including the compact 4-speed gearset.”

The new Brompton P Line launches on 18th November 2021, and will be available  in Storm Grey and Midnight Black colours (MSRP: $2,750 USD / £ 2,100).

USA / APAC – available from Jan 2022.
