The Avid Elixir 5™ disc brake supplies pure and simple powerful braking performance for XC, trail, all-mountain and freeride use.

  • Taperbore Technology™ supplies excellent control and enhances feedback for great feel; integrated reservoir provides a clean, sleek look
  • Get more forceful braking with less effort with the Power Reserve Geometry design, which places the lever pivot point closer to your fingers' natural motion
  • Stiff 2-piece caliper uses DOT 5.1 brake fluid which increases heat resistance on the large, powerful pistons for consistent power that doesn't fade away as things heat up
  • The Avid Elixir 5 disc brake features an ambidextrous lever that can be easily personalized
  • Tri-Align™ system makes installing and adjusting brake a snap and ensures the caliper is always centered and straight over the rotor
  • Brake pads load from the top so changing them is about as easy as it gets
  • Avid Elixir 5 hydraulic disc brake includes 1 lever, 1 caliper, hydraulic line and a 160mm rotor; choose from front or rear
