For the first time, the Black Edition bikes will feature a number of key components in black rather than the usual silver, and have been developed after years of interest in the possibility of an all-black Brompton.

Sleek and smart, the Black Edition is designed with the streetwise urban cyclist in mind, and gets top marks for style while retaining all of the original, carefully considered design features that makes Brompton respected across the globe.

Brompton Chief Executive Officer, Will Butler-Adams OBE says of the Black Edition: “I’m lucky that my job enables me to travel to many cities around the world. One of my favourite things to do is to cycle through cities at night, the roads are often quieter and you see a different side to city life, lit up against the backdrop of the dark sky.

City life at night was the inspiration behind the Black Edition, we were keen to try a sleek matt black Brompton mixed with pops of bright color, as well as the full black effect.”

The Black Edition will be available to order in models S, M and H Types, 2 and 6 speed gear options from all Brompton Junction stores and selected dealers Worldwide. The extremities will be black, with mainframe options being Black, White, Berry Crush, Lime Green and Lagoon Blue.

The Black Edition is a special edition bike with a 5,000 limited run!

Brompton, the U.K.’s iconic folding bike company, makes a bold stateside style move this spring with the introduction of the Brompton Black Edition. Limited to just 5,000 bikes worldwide, the Black Edition features exclusive black componentry as well as Brompton’s famous design detailing.

“From frame to accessory, the Brompton is probably the most customizable bike on the market,” says Katharine Horsman, Brompton General Manager, North America. “Since introducing Brompton to U.S. customers a few years ago, we’ve become famous for our color combinations. This year we wanted to add something extra, so we came up with the Black Edition, a tribute to urban city night rides and all weather commutes.”

Available at a starting MSRP of $1,458 the Brompton Black Edition is available this April, 2015 from Urban Bike Fitters and comes in S (flat), M (upright) and H (more upright) style handlebars with either two- or six-speed gear options. Several key components are matt black with main frame choices available in Black, White, Berry Crush, Lime Green and Lagoon Blue.

Like all Brompton bicycles, the limited Black Edition model is painstakingly hand made in Brompton’s London factory, brazed and made to exacting specifications and standards. It is this attention to detail that has made the bike a staple of British style and urban commuter lifestyle as well as a favorite around the world for riders who respect quality, durability and street smarts.

“We’ve already had enquiries from all over the world for the much anticipated Black Edition,” adds Horsman. “It will be available only while supplies last.”
