Avid Elixir 1 with G2 Clean Sweep 160 Rotor 2014
The Power to Stop Starts Here
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.
These came installed on a bike I purchased, within 6 months of riding, they became stuck and did not retreat back into their housing, so the wheels dragged badly. I cleaned and lubed, they worked for 1 or two rides then did it again. After 1 year I replaced them with Shimano XTs. Have not had any problems with the XTs on their third year.
