Avid Elixir 1 MTB Disc Brake 2012 black, front

Avid Elixir 1 MTB Disc Brake 2012

black, front - Top-notch braking shouldn't break the bank. The piston design and geometry of the Elixir line brings the power to this impressive entry-level brake. Complete with the uniquely smooth control of TaperBore technology integrated within the sleek ambidextrous lever body, tooled reach-adjust and two-piece top-loading caliper, Elixir 1 is the best performing hydraulic disc brake in its class. Features: Deep Stroke Modulation: There's a fine line between braking hard and braking so hard that you lose traction. Deep Stroke Modulation allows riders to perfectly navigate that line and control even the most powerful brakes with finesse. Integrated Reservoir: With TaperBore Technology we've integrated the reservoir and master cylinder on our hydraulic disc-brake levers to create a super-sleek (and even lighter) lever design. Power Reserve Geometry: At the end of the day, a brake lever simply multiples the force your hand generates (just like the nut cracker). Avid's Power Reserve Geometryrepresents a way of thinking about the physics of leverage and your hand's comfort. This philosophy is fundamentally different than others in the business of brakes. Due to pivot placement, physics dictates that with other brake levers your fingers tend to slip off the ends as you pull. Avid is different. We designed our levers with the pivot closer to the handlebar, in fact, closer than anyone else in the industry. The resulting lever movement has less inward travel, an arc that's closer to your fingers' natural motion and delivers more force to the brake. The cool part is, every Avid lever has it. TaperBore Technology: The term TaperBore refers to a unique patent-pending closure system in our Elixir and Code levers. It saves weight, looks super-sleek, improves lever feedback and most importantlygives you more power and control. Top-loading Pads: When the only thing between you and the trail is bike maintenance, every second matters. With our top-loading pads, new disc-brake pads can be installed without taking off the wheel, working under the caliper or doing any upside-down pad juggling, so you'll be ready to ride much quicker. Specifications: Weight: 415g (160mm rotor, front post mount) Lever Material:Black Aluminum Lever Caliper Design: 2 Piston, Forged 2-Piece Aluminum Rotor: 160mm IS Mount Pad: Organic, Top Loading Fluid: Dot 4 Mount: Ambidextrous Adjustment: Reach Adjust Special Features: TaperBore Technology
