The Avid Elixir R gets the same TaperBore inline reservoir design as the top-end Avid disc brakes. Crucially, there’s no rotating bite point adjuster at the far end, which removes most of the bleeding and reliability problems of the family.
The flip-?op design makes it easy to swap over, and it gets the same Matchmaker shifter clamp sharing options as more expensive brakes too. The lever is reach adjustable and has a unique dislocation feature to reduce the chances of crash damage.
The unique lever sweep geometry gives the Elixir R a great feel under your ?ngers on the trail. There’s loads of progressive, predictable modulation and it's ready to work with a 185mm rotor (rotor sold separately), making it enough brake for all but the most aggressive riders.
** These brakes are OEM stock and as such ship without retail packaging. Brakes ship bled and ready to ride. Front hose is 81cm long and rear is 132cm long.**
