Brompton | Back in Black and Back in Stock

25th November 2019


4 Colours. All of them black.

Everything goes with black.

We don’t do Black Friday, but we do do Black Bikes.

We are extremely excited to be taking delivery of a number of the New Black Edition Bikes from Brompton. Including the 'Superlight' Titainium folding bike. The Brompton Black Edition is soon to be available in stores with limited availability! To arrange a ride, you can call us, email us, or pop into the Bike Shed Exeter Store.

Back in Black

City life. The night. Cycling through town and finding new routes. This is our inspiration for Brompton Black Edition. Styled for urban living; sleek black componentry complementing a selection of four colour ways - either understated, or ready to make a statement with a popping colour.


The Special Edition

Since its inception 4 years ago, Black Edition bikes are made in small batches a couple of times a year and give an opportunity to grab colours not found in the main range.

Head out and find unseen parts of your city with Brompton Black Edition.

Black Edition bikes feature a number of key components in black rather than the usual silver giving a more urban vibe. City life at night was the inspiration behind the Black Edition.

The extremities are black, with mainframe options being Black, Turkish Green, Rocket Red and premium Black Lacquer.

Black Lacquer

The premium Black Lacquer is a new take on the ever popular Raw Lacquer bike. An alluring finish, the braze still visible but through a smokey, blackened lacquer.

Rocket Red

Ground Control to Major Tom - new for 2020, Rocket Red can now be found exclusively on Black Edition. A red has been a staple of the Brompton range since the start, but for this range, we’ve turned it up to 11.

Turkish Green

A mainstay of the Brompton range for over a decade, but now available exclusively in Black Edition. A dreamy transcendence between blue and green, offset perfectly with black componentry.

Black Gloss

No need for coordination. Black goes with everything. Understated yet still exuding plenty of style.



Superlight is now available on Black Edition. The titanium front fork and rear frame will be painted Black to maintain the understated Black Edition look. All Superlight Black Edition bikes will have gloss black extremities, including Black Lacquer. On a Superlight, we replace the standard components for lighter options for the following parts:

  • Titanium Front Fork
  • Titanium Rear Frame
  • Lightweight Wheel Set 
  • Titanium Mudguard Stays
  • Lightweight Headset
