Brompton, the UK’s largest bike manufacturer, has launched the lightest Brompton Electric bike ever. The refined geometry of the Electric P Line increases durability, which means the bike is available from 12.7kg, or 15.6kg with a detachable battery pack. 

With its Titanium Advanced Rear Frame and enhanced portability features, this e-bike can be folded and unfolded.

It’s the first Brompton Electric to feature the company’s superlight 4-speed gearing system which has been seen on its T Line and P Line models. 

The Brompton Electric P Line moves at speeds of up to 25 km per hour with three levels of power assist. Riders can travel as far as 70 km in a single charge.

All Brompton Electric folding bikes are hand-built and quality-assured by its teams in London and Sheffield.

Will Butler-Adams, CEO at Brompton Bicycle says: “We are thrilled to be launching the Brompton Electric P Line today. This is the most compact folding electric bike on the market – and the culmination of years of research and development. Utilising elements of our in-house designed componentry featured on the P Line and T Line models, this bike is truly lightweight and portable.” 

He adds: “E-bikes are essential for expanding access to cycling, as they enable more people to ride further and take journeys by bike that they otherwise may not have. Developing a lightweight one that is also incredibly compact is something we’re proud of – and we can’t wait to see people riding them.’’ 

Brompton bikes are sold in 47 countries around the world and over 75% of production is exported.

The company produces over 115,000 bikes a year and over 850,000 have hit the roads since the first bike was made in 1975 by the inventor Andrew Ritchie.
