Pot holes and poor road conditions can take their toll on your poor wheels and rubber (or butyl), don't worry we have a complete range of wheels, spokes, rims, tyres and tubes.
Or maybe you just fancy a shiny new and / or black wheel.
In 2013 Brompton changed from a single wall rim made by Alex wheels to a double walled rim.
The single walled rim used the same rim for both front and rear wheels.
The double wall rim comes in two styles - with straight drilled and angled holes. All front wheels use the straight drilled rims, but the rear wheel rim depends upon the hub.
Please double check the hub / wheel combination by looking at the data sheet downloadable on the product pages.
The Brompton spokes come in different lengths depending upon the wheel and rim combination. There is a data sheet on each spoke page showing a matrix of what goes with what.
Spokes for Brompton bikes come in 3 profiles:
The spoke (not poke as spell check suggested) gauge 13g / 14g refers to the thickness of the spoke - not the weight
We sell spokes as a standard set of 28 (for the Brompton rim/wheel) and also as singles - should you just wish to replace the odd one / carry one as a spare - for example when travelling on holiday.
The Brompton wheel / rim size is - ETRTO (European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation) size of 349 and is compatible with the following Brompton tyres - factory fitted:
These tyres are also compatible with your Brompton, though not supplied by Brompton as a factory fit option:

Here's a list of the wheels (and wheel components - rims / hubs / axle fittings) and wheel upgrade kits for Brompton folding bikes
What is the Brompton wheel size?
Although the Brompton wheel is normally described as 16 inch it should more correctly be called ETRTO 349 (European Tyre and Rim Technical Organisation sizing)
Just for reference: Other wheels of smaller sizes such as those on a Moulton are also referred to as 16 inch but have a smaller diameter - made up for with bigger tyre depth
