How to recognize a Brembo aftermarket product

A counterfeit product is not as safe as an original product: the importance of being able to distinguish them
Brembo is constantly battling counterfeiting of its products, since brake pads and discs are active safety components of the vehicle, therefore the customer must always be certain that the product purchased and installed on his or her vehicle is a Brembo original.
Drawing on the experience of the Brembo Performance Division, Auto and Motorcycle, Brembo Aftermarket products have validation systems capable of protecting customers from the risk of acquiring products that are not authentic, making the purchasing experience entirely safe and satisfying.
