Moving around big and busy cities is a challenge that we have to face every day. In Milan, with the new sharing mobility, we are literally full of alternatives, but more and more people opt for the good old bicycle and for its practicality. It allows you to bypass the traffic, avoid parking, and it’s a healthy and ecological way to get around. Brompton, a well-known British brand founded in 1980 and a leader in the folding bicycle market, takes a step forward.

The answer to this demand combines performance, comfort and personality in a single object. The quality of the materials used and the design which is studied in its smallest details allow Brompton to have a performance equal to, if not higher than, a traditional bike and guarantee of a longer duration. If you’re still not convinced, take a ride from the Brompton Junction store in Porta Venezia, and you’ll understand why you should have one (in addition to the following reasons).

OFFICE

Forget about any folding bikes you have ever tried, here we are talking about the maximum comfort in a very small space. Practical and light, Brompton bends and reopens itself in three easy steps and thanks to its practically nil weight, up to ten kilos, you can take it anywhere. The saddle becomes a handle and two accessory wheels allow you an incredible facility of transport. So, by subway or bus, it will be like carrying a small hand baggage that once you get to the office you can place it under your desk, taking up the little space as possible and offering you the maximum comfort.

WEEKEND

It means that you can take it with you for out-of-town trips and enjoy your destination on your bike without worries of mounting bulky bike racks on you car or finding a safe place to tie them up. If you travel by train or plane, there are also handy bags and practical trolleys to store and transport your Brompton without taking the risk of ruining it.
