Brompton C Line Explore 6 Speed Mid Handlebar Folding Bike


Brompton C Line Explore 6 Speed Mid Handlebar Folding Bike

A compact, robust, and thoughtfully engineered bike that is fun to ride, the C Line Explore is made to stand up to the rigors of everyday life.

A workhorse with 6-speed, the C Line Explore has been used by many to travel around the world, facing all terrains and weather. It folds up quickly when you grab the release lever behind the seat tube and pull upward. The back wheel will slide under the frame and serve as a parking kickstand. From there, you can also unlock the levers on the handlebars and the frame to collapse everything into a little package. 

Weighing around 26 lbs, the C Line Explore features a six-gear drivetrain (3-speed Sturmey Archer BWR hub combined with a 2-speed shifter). All of it is propelled by 16-inch wheels with 35c Schwalbe puncture-proof tires. The front carrier block is adaptable with a wide range of Brompton bags. The bike is fitted with fenders, a standard seatpost that can be swapped to Extended or Telescopic seatposts depending on your height, and a Brompton wide saddle.

Available only with mid-handlebar.
