Sunseeker Brompton: A glimpse of the Limited Edition Sunseeker foldable bike in build

In January this year, Sunseeker London ventured from sea to land with the announcement of its partnership with Brompton, arguably the World’s best known manufacturer of folding bicycles, with the creation of a Limited Edition Brompton exclusively for Sunseeker clients. Following a trip to the Brompton factory in Brentford, where the team from Sunseeker London met with Brompton’s affable Managing Director, Will Butler-Adams, the Sunseeker Brompton was quickly born.

This Summer has seen a number of Sunseeker Brompton bikes making their way to marinas across Europe, including Malta, Greece and even Turkey. As the ultimate yachting accessory, providing fun and easy transportation around the harbour or town, the Sunseeker Brompton is a must for any discerning Sunseeker ownerThe bike itself is light, compact and easy to store away onboard. Finished in custom white and gloss black paint, the Sunseeker Brompton is an M2L model – M-type high rise handlebars, 2-speed gears and L-type mudguards – and features a quintessentially British Brooks brown leather grips and saddle. For portability, the bike comes with its own embroidered Sunseeker carry bag and an additional shoulder bag that fastens to the bike’s frame – perfect for storing items whilst cycling around.
