The brompton was used in the 1990s in Germany mainly in the boat sector. Thanks to its compact packing dimensions of 60 x 60 x 30 cm, it fits into any back box when folded and can easily be stowed away on a motor or sailboat. Its light weight (on average about 11.5 kg) makes the Brompton the perfect companion on the boat for shore excursions.

The Brompton can easily take the comparison with other city and even touring bikes. Thanks to the small wheels it drives even faster than conventional city or touring bikes. For shore excursions bags can be easily hung with the support block on the front of the frame and off you go.
