Out of all the Brompton's I've been lucky enough to ride, this one is my favourite. It has subtle differences which help to improve its ride but overall it's the weight saving that makes this bike better and more fun to ride.

We feel that the Brompton CHPT3 is by far one of the best Brompton’s you can buy in the brands current line up. It's fast, looks great and handles well. Ideal for those looking to chop some time off their commute or for those that ride a little further between stations or around town, it isn’t eye wateringly expensive either, an ideal Editor’s Choice winner.

British brand Brompton is one of those great engineering companies that seem to do everything right. Seemingly teaming up with David Millar for its latest version of the Brompton X CHPT3 was the right thing to do also.
