About the dynamo hub

The hub dynamo, with the dynamo mechanism built into the hub of the font wheel, is quite unlike the old fashioned tyre / bottle dynamos of the past in that they offer pretty much no extra resistance when pedalling

Weight wise hub dynamos are not much heavier than a normal hub / wheel combination

Including some Brompton dynamo hub history ....

  • 2005

Brompton introduced the option for a SON hub dynamo - beautifully engineered, with a Bush and Muller switched front light and a Spanninga rear stand light (meaning it will stay on when you stop powering it - so that you can be seen by traffic) - the stand light also has a built in reflector for added visibility / to meet regulations

  • 2010

Brompton introduce hub dynamos, replacing the tyre / bottle dynamo system previously used

The Brompton dynamo hubs come in different varieties:

  • SON hub dynamo - very lightweight and low rolling resistance - at a price - this was supplied with a Bush and Muller LED front light and Spanninga rear light with stand function
  • Shimano hub dynamo - from a well known brand with a slight weight and rolling resistance penalty - but at a cheaper price. Supplied with a Bush and Muller halogen front lamp with a Spanninga rear light with stand function
  • 2013

The Shimano front light was changed from a halogen to a Bush and Miller Lyt B model LED light. It has an on/off switch but no stand light function - so when you stop, the light goes off

  • 2017

The Shimano hub dynamo is also made available in black - it is used on some of the Black Edition and the Nine Streets special edition bikes

  • 2018

These two options (SON and Shimano) have been discontinued by Brompton

  • 2019

In 2018 Brompton will - as part of the 2019 model range - (soon) start using a new SP (Shutter Products) dynamo - offering good weight, price and rolling resistance 

About the dynamo lighting

The hub dynamo system can power front, rear or both lights - by means of a cable running from the hub
