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.

Tools required: 2mm Allen Key

Review Title: Pads for your Brompton.

These are probably the best pads for your Brompton, and even so I seem to get through them every 6 months - so thanks to Brilliant Bikes for their excellent service sending out replacements quickly.

          Review Title: fitting tip

          Great replacement part remember you need two packs if you are replacing front and rear brakes . I fixed the small bolt that locks the pad in place with a tiny amount of lock tight as one came out before .

            Review Title: Good pads

            Direct replacement for the originals on my Brompton. They perform well, and produce what seems like a 'typical' amount of black dust/dirt. I might try an alternative one day to see if this aspect can be improved upon.

                Review Title: They stop my bike!

                The fibrax pads are great. Fitting is easy and they stop the bike without chewing up the wheel-rim.
                I recently bought a different make from Cycle Surgery and they weren't a patch.
