A worthy companion to Pashley's well-regarded Britannia bicycle, the new Briton is a 5 speed model coming in a choice of classic Oxford Blue or Oxblood, with striking cream tyres. It takes inspiration from Pashley's flagship Roadster bicycle, but with a lighter specification and a slightly more relaxed riding style.
Due to the unprecedented current demand, most Pashley cycles are being built to order. Estimated lead time is 4 to 6 weeks.
The classic chainguard and mudguards keep you clean and looking your best, whilst the reliable hub brakes and gears are effective no matter what the weather conditions. Comfort is enhanced by the inclusion of soft cork grips and a hand-made sprung Brooks aged leather saddle - made only thirty miles from Pashley's factory - which gradually shapes to your form to become a truly customised and supportive seat. A front dynamo headlamp and rear LED light keeps you visible at night, and a sturdy ‘kick-down’ propstand allows you to stand your bicycle upright with ease.
It is a bicycle with real character, perfect as a companion for your commute to work, a weekend jaunt into the countryside, or a quick spin to your local cafe. The term ‘Briton’ has roots in the iron age yet reflects a modern and inclusive culture and joins the range firmly flying the flag for Pashley's traditional craftsmanship and manufacturing here in Stratford-upon-Avon.
