What are the Brompton lighting options?


Brompton offers two lighting systems which work seamlessly with the folded package, meaning they are protected from damage. Any of Brompton's lighting options can be retrofitted and are compatible with other bikes, though fitting a hub dynamo to a Brompton Superlight bike will mean compromising on the weight advantage.

Brompton's detachable lighting consists of an LED battery operated rear lamp with an integrated reflector, designed especially for the Brompton bikes. This rear lamp is also a strong bright, light and secure mount.


There is also an option to add a USB rechargeable saddle light, which comes with a bracket to fit onto the back of the newer Brompton Saddles (there is an adaptor available to fit this to a Brooks saddle). Click here for more information.



At the front is the neat yet powerful CatEye Volt 400 USB chargeable lamp, easily removed with a quick release, it has been designed specifically for Brompton bikes in collaboration with CatEye.


Our SP (Shutter Products) SV-8 hub dynamo offers a very reliable fixed lighting solution. The SP SV8 is a small, lightweight dynamo hub; built into the Brompton front wheel to provide the power for front and rear lights. A cable runs from the front wheel to the rear light and means you never have to remember to charge or pack any lighting. This option, if not purchased with a Brompton, will require the front wheel to be replaced. 


All of Bromptons' lights are fitted in place of reflectors. To fit reflectors as an addition, it is possible to fit reflectors into the spokes and/or mount the front reflector on the handlebars.

Please note: In France, the bike comes as standard with the front CatEye and rear battery light as well as reflectors on the wheels.
