New Brompton model names for 2022

New Brompton model names for 2022

The Brompton bike is made for those that live, work or play in cities. Folding to a third of its size and weighing on average just 11kg for a standard model, the Brompton bike is easy to carry and easy to store. Take it on all forms of transport – rush-hour trains, in the trunk of a car or the local taxi boat.

For 2022, Brompton has changed the way models are named.  These are the same great bikes, just with new naming system.

C-Line:  The Classic All-Steel Folding Bike

The original design with the 3-par fold, handmade in our London factory since 1975. Compact and robust – it's a seriously engineered bike that’s fun to ride.

In the widest range of colours – whatever your ride style, there’s a C Line for you.

The C-Line is available in 3 models, corresponding to the number of gears:

  • C-Line Explore has 6-speeds
  • C-Line Utility has 3-speeds 
  • C-Line Urban has 2-speeds

All C-Line models are available with three handlebar profiles:

  • Low (formerly S), a straight profile bar for the sportiest position.
  • Mid (formerly M), a riser profile for a neutral/relaxed position.  Brompton's most popular choice.
  • High (formerly H), a riser profile with an extended stem for an upright position for average height riders or a neutral position for tall riders.

All C-Line bikes come with mud guards (fenders) and a front carrier block for Brompton luggage..

Example of the old and new model naming:  A M6L (M handlebar, 6-speeds, fenders) is now called a C-Line Explore Mid.  


A-Line:  The Essential Brompton

New for 2022, Brompton introduces the A-Line.  Made in Brompton's UK factory, this model comes only as a 3-speed with a mid-height handlebar and in one colour scheme.  The most affordable Brompton, perfect for city riding.
