NEW YORK, March 22, 2017 –Today, Brompton Bicycle, the iconic folding bike manufacturer, announced a new collaboration with The Cambridge Satchel Company. As a celebration of their shared heritage, the two brands are excited to deliver three unique bags and one special edition bike with a promotional launch in spring. The British brands share a passion for design, function and fun, and both companies are achieving global success through their handmade products.
Brompton Bicycle’s in-house design team has worked closely with The Cambridge Satchel Company team to develop three stylish leather satchels, in three colors: Lagoon Blue, Turkish Green and a new color, Oxblood. All the satchels integrate with Brompton’s front carrier system, fitting neatly to all their bikes. In addition, Brompton has created a special edition bike in Gloss Oxblood and Ivory which showcases the Oxblood satchel.
“The Brompton team and Cambridge have often crossed paths and it felt right to work with them as our first collaboration with a bike brand,” said Julie Deane OBE, Founder & CEO of The Cambridge Satchel Company. “As well as our shared British heritage, we’re both proud of how well our products have been received from Hollywood royalty to street style gurus. Both Brompton and The Cambridge Satchel Company have become favorites of those in the know in the U.S.”
The Cambridge Satchel Company Brompton bike comes with the Oxblood satchel and is available as an M3L model, with a brown Brooks B17 saddle and the main frame finished in Gloss Oxblood and frame extremities in Gloss Ivory. The special edition bike, including matching Oxblood satchel, is $2115 MSRP. All Cambridge Satchel Company Brompton satchels come with a 15 inch integrated Brompton frame, two storage compartments, buckle fastenings in Boston Nickel and a co-branded logo, and are available individually at $299 MSRP.
“I took over as Brompton CEO the same time Julie started The Cambridge Satchel Company,” said Will Butler-Adams OBE. “We have both been focusing on quality and the craftsmanship behind our products ever since. We set ourselves the challenge of producing a bike and satchel that were perfect for traveling in the modern city, while having a unique stylish look.”
All products are available through selected dealers in the U.S. and Canada including Redbeard Bikes (Brooklyn, NY), Portapedal Bike (Tempe, AZ), Huckleberry Bicycle (San Francisco, CA), Perennial Cycles (Minneapolis, MN), and Curbside Cycle (Toronto, Canada).
Brompton will also be at the Sea Otter Classic showcasing the Cambridge Satchel Company special edition bike at Booth #751.
