Welcome to the Brompton folding bike! Hand-built in England, with over 35 years of constant innovation. The result is a fun and fast ride which folds in mere seconds to the world's most compact and easy-to-transport package. The Explore Mid model has Brompton's comfortable Mid handlebar, the most popular choice for comfort and performance. The Explore comes with a 6-speed drivetrain and fenders, making it ideal for urban commuting or relaxing rides on bike paths.
Black Lacquer is a black-tinted transparent finish painstakingly achieved, showing the quality and craftsmanship of the frame, hand brazed in Brompton's West London factory.
Each bike made with the Black Lacquer finish has a unique appearance due to variations in the surface colourations of the metalwork and should be considered an industrial finish. The look and colouration of the Black Lacquer finish will vary from bike to bike and on each frame part.
The Black Lacquer finish uses the same power coating process as Brompton's other colour options; it gives identical durability and protection. The steel frame parts will age, and a patina will form over time which will be visible through the Black Lacquer finish.
