Brompton has launched its new Brompton Explore.
The Explore features a 6-speed groupset with reduced gearing, allowing riders to tackle more challenging terrain and deal with the increased kit weight. Including a custom 28L roll-top bag and special edition spares pouch, the Brompton Explore is finished in earthy hues inspired by the landscape, tan wall tyres and Brooks Cambium C17 all-weather saddle to offer both function and form.
Everyone who purchases an Explore bike will also receive a copy of Brompton’s new Explore book. Created with micro-adventurer Alastair Humphreys, this includes Brompton’s City Escape Guides with routes out of major cities.
Joel Natale, Brompton’s head of product, said: “Although the Brompton is most well recognised in the city, our global community has always used the bike to take trips further afield.
“The Brompton Explore provides unparalleled freedom to those with a sense of adventure, as it’s as simple as packing the bag and jumping on the nearest bus, train or plane to escape the city for a long weekend or perhaps just taking a more scenic route home from work.”
The new Brompton Explore edition retails from £1,525. To celebrate the launch, every Brompton Explore purchased from the UK online store will also receive a free ticket to one of Brompton’s exclusive launch events in either London or the Peak District taking place this Autumn. More details will be available on Brompton’s website shortly.
