Brake calipers, pads, levers, parts and cables specifically for your Brompton folding bicycle

Like you, we think that stopping is quite important!

Brompton use different lengths of cables specific to the handle bar types:

  • M-type - the traditional handlebar type
  • H-type - higher riding position
  • S-type - straight / sports style bar
  • P-type - multi-position especially suited to touring (this handlebar type was disconinued in 2019)

Different cable specifications / lengths are used so that the fold works properly.

Which way around are the brakes

In the UK - where we are based, as we drive on the left, the front brake lever is on the right and the rear is on the left (this is sometimes used as moto style - as it is also the way used on motorbikes)

If you require brake cables for a reverse set-up - with the front brake  on the left, please contact us as we keep these in stock but don't currently list them - to avoid confusion

  • Brompton Brake Cables

    To keep the fold of the Brompton optimal, different models of Brompton use different length brake cables - and of course the spec (or length) is different for front or rear brake

    Short Wheelbase vs Long Wheelbase Brompton

    The short wheelbase version of the Brompton was discontinued approx 2004 - and the cables for these are no longer available as separate items. The short wheelbase was approx 3 cm shorter than the long wheelbase - so by using the long wheelbase rear brake cable you will just have a bit of extra slack - but it will work just fine

    Different Models

    Current Brompton model ranges are:

    • A Line / B75
    • C Line / C Line Electric / older model Brompton folding bikes
    • P Line / P Line Electric
    • T Line

    All the model ranges (with the exception of the T Line front) use the same brake cable

    What you will need to know is - handlebar type:

    • Mid rise - previously known as M type
    • Low rise - previously known as S type
    • High rise - previously known as H type
    • P type (now discontinued)

    you will also need to know if you have standard / UK setup or EU setup:

    • UK / Standard / Moto setup - the front brake lever is on the right hand side and the rear brake lever is on the left hand side
    • EU / USA setup - the front brake lever is on the left hand side and the read brake lever is on the right hand side

  • Brompton Brake Pads

    A selection of brake pads suitable for Brompton folding bikes from the following suppliers:

    • Brompton
    • SwissStop
    • Fibrax
    • Magura

    Note: The Brompton pads and the Magura pads both use SwissStop BXP pads

    Do all Brompton models (A Line / C Line / P Line / T Line etc) use the same brake pads

    Pretty much - yes

    The current brake pads (made by SwissStop) were introduced by Brompton along with the Brompton Electric to give even better stopping power - prior to that Brompton used Fibrax Pads

    Putting SwissStop BXP pads (the model used by the Brompton Electric) on any Brompton will improve the stopping (and reduce the rim wear)

  • Brompton Brake Parts

    Brompton Brake Levers / Calipers and small associated parts

    The ‘newer’ - since 2017 brake levers have the ability to mount an integrated shifter and / or bell and / or Brompton Be Seen lights

    The same caliper is used for front and rear brake - if you have an older Brompton and want a newer caliper then you will need to drill a larger hole in the rear of the fork

    if you want to replace older style brakes then you may need shorter handlebar grips (depending upon handlebar type)
