This is a pair of replacement brake pads (inserts only) for the Mk3 (2008 onwards) Brompton brake callipers
These brake pad inserts are not currently at Brompton - this could be due to the change to new 2018 brake blocks - you can get the Fibrax equivalent brake pad inserts here
Some Brompton brake pad / caliper history:
As of 2017 the current Brompton brake calipers - Mk3 - are a bronze(ish) colour - they were introduced in 2008/2009. In addition there are black edition calipers which are also available on the after-market.
Initially, Bromptons made after that time used Fibrax brake shoes (also a bronze(ish) colure which have exchangeable pads (meaning you can change the pad and keep the holder - saving some money).
In approx 2016, the brake shoes/holders were changed for black ones - in our opinion they look better on the Black calipers than they do on the bronze ones.
Previous to the Mk3 bronze coloured (and black edition) brake calipers - they were silver. These didn't have replaceable pads, a new shoe and pad were required when the brakes wore out.
Please note: This is just the rubber pad, not the holder / shoe.
Since 2016 the brake pads are "handed" so marked with L-Left and R-Right
Note: If you have older (silver as opposed to light bronze colour) brake calipers without fibrax pads, you will need the pads AND holders (they are compatible) - found here
If you have the newer Black brake shoes on your brake calipers - these are the also the replacement pads for you.
The worn out Brompton 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 some money compared to having to buy a complete pad and holder set.
Tools required: 2mm Allen Key
Brompton Q part code: QBRPADINSERT
