Nickel is Back in Stores

The popular Brompton Nickel Edition has returned to all Brompton Junction stores and selected dealers worldwide. The most premium bike, available in steel and Superlight titanium. The bike sports a vivid reflective finish and boasts the same black componentry seen on the Brompton Black Edition.

The special edition, which debuted in 2016 features highly-polished nickel plating, normally reserved for mining equipment. Minor variations to the finish appear on each bike, ensuring that the final look is unique for every customer. The bike will be available in both steel with black extremities or as a Superlight option with a titanium fork and rear frame. Brompton Nickel Edition will be available to order in models S, M and H types with both 2 and 6 speed options available. 

This run is part of three small manufacturing batches planned for Nickel in 2017. Chief Sales & Marketing Officer, Stephen Loftus said “Demand remains high for our most premium Nickel Edition finish, and as a result we are delighted to release our third and final 2017 batch of bikes just before the year ends and our factory closes for Christmas”.

Having searched for various chrome effect powder coats, Nickel was decided on by Brompton for its class-leading anti-corrosion properties and durable wear resistance. The specialist electrolysis plating uses a catalytic reaction rather than an electric current, which creates a perfect even coating. The Nickel Edition also sports a finish which is fifty microns thick, a thickness which ensures durability.

Prices for the Nickel Edition start at £1,425 RRP. The Superlight Nickel Edition will be available from £2,085.
