Avid Elixir CR Disc Brakes with 160mm w/ G3 Rotors
The Avid Elixir CR hydraulic disc brake is pre-bled and comes with 160mm G3 Clean Sweep rotors and carbon lever blades. The Elixir CR is an excellent choice for the cross country or trail rider looking to upgrade to a lightweight hydraulic disc brake system.
Please Note: Brake lines are shorter than usual. Measure your existing brake lines and compare to lengths listed below.
Overall pretty happy with these brakes. Plenty of stopping power, love the adjustability and clean cockpit when paired w/SRAM's Matchmaker. Pretty straight forward to bleed once I discovered a few little tricks. Have the typical intermittent Avid squeal.
Installed a set of these on my wife's bike. She liked them because the red accent matches the red accents on her bike. These offer easier adjustment than the standard Elixir brakes. You can move the pads closer or farther by turning red part on the lever. And you can adjust the reach to the lever without tools. Which worked well for my wife's smaller hands. Great stopping power and feel. great brake.
