Brompton Fibrax brake pads

It seems that some Brompton branded spares can be a little pricey. When I needed some replacement brake pads recently I thought £8 per pair was a bit steep. The original pads are made in the UK by Fibrax and are Shimano standard. Looking on the Fibrax website the Insert Pads for Shimano Road Holders — Black were a lot cheaper so I ordered 2x twin sets for about £12 including delivery, that’s £20 cheaper than the Brompton branded ones!

£12 worth of Fibrax pads — plus free stickers!

They look identical to me, although perhaps the compound is slightly different. I’ll post an update with any feedback after I’ve used them.
