Fibrax Semi-Metallic Plus brake pads review£14.99

Decent performing lightweight pads

BikeRadar score3.5/5

These lightweight pads fall between organic and sintered compounds and only the aluminium-backed versions (from other manufacturers) are lighter. The idea is to have a mixed pad suitable for all disciplines. These also come with a handy rotor wipe.

On the downside, there were no instructions and the red backing paint came off quickly, but didn’t impair performance. Performance wasn’t initially as good as some of the competition and they squealed a bit during bedding-in.
