In various tests Brompton has received the highest marks for both handling and foldability. This is accomplished through innovative design and continuous testing of every part and detail to make the best folding bike available.
The design of Brompton starts with the proportions and wheelbase of an adult size city bike.
Therefore the bike feels similar to a normal non-folding bike in normal riding speeds.
The basics of the folding mechanism have remained unchanged through the years and it is possible to update any
Brompton manufactured after 2003 (wheelbase lenghtened) to match the 2013-model.
Brompton still offers spare parts for the "short" bikes.

In 2005 the original M-(handlebar)model was joined by the S-model for a sportier riding position and the P-model, which offers various hand positions for touring style riding. In 2012 Brompton introduced the H-model. It has the M-model handlebar but the stem is 60mm higher. All models are available in 1-, 2-, 3- or 6-speeds.Brompton models in one picture.
