This simple, less expensive version of AVID high end Elixirs still delivers the famous premium ride quality, with a powerful two-caliper design and a reach adjust that’s easy to access.

  • Lever is tungsten with an aluminum body. Caliper is forged aluminum.
  • Rotor HS1 (140mm rear) 160/180/200mm.
  • Ambidextrous mount.
  • Split clamp.
  • TaperBore closure system reduces weight while increasing lever feedback, power and control.
  • MatchMaker compatible to reduce weight and clutter on your handlebars when paired with other AVID components.
  • Top-loading pads install without removing the wheel, working under the caliper or inverting the bike.
  • Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System™ makes installation, adjustment and alignment fast and easy.
  • Reach adjust feature fits the lever to your hand.
  • DOT 5.1 fluid has a much longer boiling time, for fade-free performance in extreme conditions.
