This is a pair of replacement brake pads for the MK3 (2008 onwards) Brompton brake callipers.
The current Brompton brake calipers - Mk 3 - are a bronze(ish) colour and were introduced in 2008/2009. All Bromptons made after that use Fibrax brake shoes which have exchangeable pads (meaning you can change the pad and keep the holder - saving some money).
Please note: This is just the rubber pad, not the holder / shoe.
Since 2016 these are "handed" so marked with L-Left and R-Right
Note: If you have older (silver colour) brake calipers without fibrax pads, you will need the pads AND holders (they are compatible)
The worn out Brompton / Fibrax brake pad-insert is removed by using a 2mm allen key to loosen an allen bolt, then sliding out the brake pad Insert.
The new brake pad insert is then slid into place and the allen bolt re-tightened.
Replacing just the pad (rather than the pad and holder) saves som money compared to having to buy a complete pad and holder set.
Full details of how to fit these to your Brompton are included on the back of the nice red pack.
