The Team GB special edition comes in a stylish red lacquer (never seen before on a Brompton), with gloss white and blue extremities.
This Olympic year has been like no other. The 2021 games mark a moment of coming together and pushing on.
During this time of postponement, we’ve supported athletes with bicycles so they can go about their business being champions.
You won’t see our bike in the omnium, or the team pursuit, or, for that matter, any elite races. But you might spot them in the Athletes’ village, between venues, or in the corner of the training gyms. And not just ridden by athletes, but also by their support and logistics crews.
A Brompton makes getting around busy urban areas more efficient.
Since 2008 when Chris Hoy saddled up on a Brompton for the closing ceremony in Beijing to handover the Games in London, Brompton has an on-going relationship with Team GB.
Starting in 2012, supplying dozens of bikes for athletes to use at summer and winter games, making zipping between venues, training centres and the Athletes’ Village a breeze.
A royalty will be paid from every bike sale to the British Olympic Association to help support current and future Team GB athletes.
Meet the Athletes
Last year, a host of Team GB stars visited the Brompton factory to see their bikes being made on the production line ready to travel to Tokyo.
“Brompton Bikes are known throughout the world and are a very proud British brand with whom we are delighted to be working with ahead of and during Tokyo 2020. We had various members of the operations team using them in Tokyo to map out routes between key sites, so they have already proved their worth and we look forward to using them further still at Games time.”
- Tim Ellerton, Commercial Director at Team GB
Limited numbers of our Team GB bike are available at Brompton Junction NYC.
