“The mother of all folding bikes”

– Telegraph - 2017


About Us

We hand build folding bikes and make useful products that are built to last. It all started in 1975 with our inventive founder searching for an easier way to move around the city. Since then, the philosophies of our founder and the inspiring stories of Brompton owners across the globe have guided us into a company that's more than just a bike.

The Brompton story
Andrew Ritchie was a young engineer who believed in a better way to move around the city. In 1975 in the bedroom of his flat overlooking the Brompton Oratory, he invented a bike with an ingenious 3-part fold. A vehicle that transformed into a small package and could go anywhere with him. A 'magic carpet' for the city.

Not like other bikes
Bromptons are made different. We engineer an efficient solution for moving around the city and beyond. Ours is a bike that does more than the obvious. It answers problems owners tell us they didn't know they had.

'You don't get Brompton until you get a Brompton.'

Brompton is an independent company with a team of over 750 people. We create freedom in the city with folding bikes and useful products that are built to last.

A bike born in the city

The unique Brompton folding bike was designed and built in London in 1975 by Andrew Ritchie in his flat in South Kensington opposite the Brompton Oratory. Still made in London today, Brompton is making over 45,000 bikes per year and is the UK’s largest bike manufacturer. Read more about our history

Changing the way people live in cities

The Brompton was conceived as a product that increases people’s sense of independence and increases peoples sense of freedom, and this concept is still at the heart of everything we do. When people think about getting around in the city better, we want them to think of Brompton.

Brompton in the city

Made in London

Each bike is hand brazed by skilled craftsman at our London factory. This makes every bike incredibly tough and unique. Each brazer is trained by Brompton for 18 months and has a ‘signature’ which they stamp on the parts of the bike that they work on. London is a city of icons and a Brompton bike is one of them. Its unique profile sets it apart from other bikes. A Brompton is as London as a double decker bus, the London Underground Big Ben and The LondonEye – all innovative, excellent and enduring.


Research and Development 

80% of the componentry on our bikes is designed and made for Brompton, the work that goes into designing, researching and developing our products is clearly critical. Technical advances are being made all the time in bike manufacture and some are both genuinely innovative and useful. However, we have never used off-the-shelf products just for the sake of simplicity, preferring always to implement the best solution to any design or engineering challenge; more often than not, this has meant going down the more complex road of developing a unique solution in-house. 

Besides conducting R&D in-house, we also undertake almost all the testing ourselves, with only the finished products being tested externally in independent testing. And with so many unique parts and unique engineering solutions, we have had to produce over 500 different purpose-built press tools, moulds, braze jigs and assembly fixtures; all designed and developed in-house as well.
