Brompton Bicycle

The Brompton Bicycle was conceived as a product that increases people’s independence and freedom, and this concept remains the philosophy of the company - making bicycles that are reliable wherever and whenever they are used. Brompton Bicycle believe that this approach should inform the way we act, not just what we make, and that it should extend, through their distributors and dealers, to the end user. Everyone involved should feel comfortable with the purchase they make and satisfied that they had freedom of choice. The Brompton is a personal transport solution, allowing people to rethink and vary and adapt their journeys at will; their Brompton sets them free from the constraints imposed by the combustion engine, city planners, the weather, public transport administrators, bike thieves and countless other layers of complexity. The resources in this collection were produced by Brompton Bicycle to support design and technology teaching in primary and secondary schools, to promote the teaching of product design and set learning in the context of a real-life company.
