2018 Black Edition
Brompton's 2018 Black Edition keep their popular formula - start with a 6 or 2 speed Brompton, swap out all of the chrome and alloy and swap in black components. Only limited numbers are released each year and we generally sell out of the popular configurations in the first month or so.
This year, the feature colors see the return of Black (of course) and Orange, however, we now have Turkish Green as a third option. All of these have the feature color in the mainframe, whereas the extremities (forks, rear triangle, and handlebar stem) are black.
This year, they've also turned it up a notch. Perhaps inspired by one of our custom creations, they have a premium 'Black Lacquer' model. This has all of a Black Edition's components, however, they're mated to a raw lacquer frame. This, in turn, has a unique tint, 'Black Lacquer' which gives the metal a dark lustre with the hand-brazed joins shining through in stark contrast. It has to be seen to be believed, and will likely be highly sought after both now, and in future years.
