Brompton Explore - Take the Long Route.
Posted on 30 September 2019
Ridden at the South Pole by a research scientist, around the world and into some of it's most remote corners by Heinz Stucke, as well as numerous times between Land’s End and John O’Groats by intrepid riders, Brompton bikes have for a long time taken their owners to new places. And whilst typically a staple in the city, many owners have recognised the robust build and compact fold (when hopping in trains planes or cars) to be huge benefits when planning an excursion to somewhere new.
To celebrate cycling’s inherent spirit of adventure, Brompton has created the Explore. Spec’d and styled ready for you to either find a new route, or plan your next escape. Pedal an off-the-beaten-track through town or pack up the bag and bust out of the city to the great outdoors.The Brompton Explore special edition is tested by explorers; Alastair Humphreys on a Scottish Highland odyssey and, er, Steve in Brompton's design team when he wanted to find a more scenic route to the pub. (That's Steve, below!)
The reduced gearing six speed makes hills a joy and helps with heavier loads. A special touch is the special-designed T-Bag (green with light camo print), that offers high capacity ready for longer trips, a saddle pouch loaded with parts and accessories to keep you on the go (including the amazing Brompton Tool Kit, a $100 value). And, if you think that's cool, the Explore is outfitted with super special edition Schwalbe tires that match the handgrips, and a special edition green Brooks Cambium saddle - a comfortable addition for long rides and waterproof for those rainy Autumn days.
Stylish yet subdued, the Explore is decked out with premium touch points and finished in earthy hues inspired by the landscape. The quickest way to have an adventure? Jump on a bike and find somewhere new. Could be close by, could be a big trip, or just a different route to somewhere you’re already going. This bike is for enjoying the journey. So why not get out there, and Explore?
