Brompton extra light front wheel - black

This wheel was launched with the CHPT3 special edition bike

Itl has a hollow axle and is secured using an allen bolt (included). The wheel weighs in (according to our scales) at 535g, giving you a saving of 115g over the standard Brompton wheel - perfect for those wanting to lose a bit of weight from their bike

Rim tape and axle fittings are also included.

Please note: Picture shows the wheel on a bike, with tyre! Only the wheel and fittings are included

Brompton Q part code: QFWSS-SL-BK
Brompton part number: 9006953

Note: The hub has distinct left and right hand sides. This is because the axle protrudes  by a different amount on each side to accommodate the mudguard stay.

It is essential that the wheel is fitted the correct way round.

If not fitted the correct way round, the wheel may not be properly secured and may come loose.

To help you with installation the hub is colour coded with the left side of the hub having a red axle cap. In addition the axle stubs are marked "L" and "R". (That is left and right as you are sitting on the bike facing forwards)

To fit, use the same tab-washers as on the old wheel (note: on some P-type Bromptons, there is a special RH tab washer), but discard (maybe keep for the future?) any plain M8 washers.

Insert the allen bolt through the front axle spacer bush and tab washer, and into the axle from the right hand side. Make sure that the left hand tab washer and wire-form are in place, and screw in the left hand nut and tighten.

These instructions, along with diagram are also supplied with the wheel.

    Is there a superlight version of the rear wheel, or is it just the front wheel that is different? Answer:
    It is just the front wheel that is different
