The Brompton S6E CHPT3 features Brompton's S type handlebar, the S Type is Brompton's Sleekest and most aero handlebar. It still comes equipped with Brompton’s super reliable and easily maintained 6 Speed systems. With no mudguards or rack to get in the way the S6E is a stripped down lightweight speed machine. Using Brompton’s patented folding mechanism, no folding bike can fold as fast and as compact as a Brompton can.
2 years ago, Will Butler Adams met ex-pro cyclist David Millar at a dinner. On finding out that David only ever cycled when he was out training or racing and rarely used a bike for simply getting around the city, Will insisted that he borrow a Brompton to try out, and more importantly join in the Brompton World Championship. After initially being a little sceptical about taking part in the race, David was persuaded by the idea that the Brompton design team could knock up a ‘race ready’ spec and even colour it in the 2 colours of the brand David had just started to put together, CHPT3. David was then hooked, not only for using a Brompton to get around town (his being Girona, Spain), but also for taking along to the Tour De France for him and co-commentator Ned Boulting to buzz around on at stage starts and finishes.
