More info

The SON dynamo system, made for Brompton may seem expensive - but beautifully engineered, extremely light and almost friction free.

A new lower price was introduced in winter 2016!

The Son hub dynamo is highly efficient, and you can expect years of reliable use.

On / off control is via a switch on the front lamp. Other than that, the lamps are the same as with the tyre dynamo system.

This is much more expensive than the new Brompton / Shimano hub dynamo but offers less rolling resistance.

Brompton Q part code: QVHDYNSET-SON
Brompton part number: 9014019

Note: Full installation instructions are provided - and can be provided to you in advance if you want to check out what is involved.

Just sits there doing its job

I've had one of these for six years; I bought the hub and built the wheel myself. It uses the standard Brompton spoke lengths. You don't notice any real drag, lights on or off, and it removes the "range anxiety" of batteries. Wiring up a rear light is a faff and batteries in a rear light can last all winter (not so for a front light!), so I just use the Brompton battery LED at the rear and let the front light have all the dynamo power. A B&M Cyo on the shorter of the two B&M front brake brackets doesn't interfere with folding.

My only criticism is that the shell is highly polished aluminium and road salt may eventually get to it. Even if it's lacquered it won't stay protected for ever.
