Brompton battery powered rear light

This light fits Bromptons with a rack as well as those without - it simply replaces the rear reflector (and has a reflector built into the light)

New for Brompton in December 2018 - the Brompton Spanninga Solo battery operated rear light

The Brompton battery powered rear light is made for Brompton by Dutch company Spanninga

It is a very slimline single LED rear lamp with integral reflector

The light stays fixed to the bike. The lamp simply replaces the reflector - held in place with 2 bolts (50mm spacing)

Two modes:
Built in reflector

The on / off button is on the bottom of the light

Why is there no flashing mode?
There is no flash mode on this light - we think it's because it is made by Spanninga in Holland - and in Holland (and Germany) flashing lights are not legal on bicycles
Additionally - for a bicycle light to meet British Standards (as this one does) then it must be steady with no flashing function available (look at any CatEye light package - it says if used in UK it must be used in conjunction with a British Standard lamp)

About the mounting brackets / fixings:

If you have a rack fitted then the brackets holding the reflector will hold the light - unless its a really old tubular rack which will require rack mounting brackets and for you to drill a hole in the rack

If you don't have a rack - then you can use the "Y" shaped bracket (mounted on the rear brake caliper) which holds on the rear reflector

Note: The light actually fits 50mm and 80mm mounts
Brompton use 50mm but the ones we have received so far are set as 80mm - so you may need to change them - this is done by

  • unclipping the front - as when changing batteries
  • wiggling the mounting bolts loose
  • sliding the mounting bolts out
  • sliding into the required fitting
  • press firmly until they click into place

The light comes with two washers and two nyloc washers so it will stay secure on the bike


Batteries (2 x AAA) are included
Batteries are changed by unclipping the lens from the main unit - no tools required

Looking for a similar light but rechargeable?

The 2C permanent (slightly more expensive) from Busch and Muller is a reflector / rear light compatible with the Brompton fittings - but rechargeable using a USB cable - see the related items / accessories at the bottom of the page

The Brompton rear light can mount to the R-type (with mudguards and rack), L-type (with mudguards) or E-type (no mudguards or rack) - i.e. it is compatible with all Brompton models - it just replaces the rear reflector and adds a lamp functionality

Brompton Q part code: QVBATRLAM-SOLO
Brompton part number: 9020447

We made this short video about the difference between the old and the new Brompton light and how to install it
