Elixir 3
Power, Performance and Value: choose all three.

With features that matter, the Elixir 3 offers ambidextrous levers complete with our standout TaperBore Technology and convenient tooled reach adjust. Use the adjustable rear banjo to route your housing like the pros, well, that's just cool. Not all pockets are deep, which is why we don't consider things like comfort, control and reliability "features" - to us, these are rights of every Avid owner.

. TaperBore TechnologyT: 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 importantly-gives you more power and control.
. Deep Stroke ModulationT: 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.
. 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 GeometryTrepresents 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.
. Tri-AlignT Caliper Positioning SystemT: Another original Avid technology making your life better-there's never been an easier brake to install and adjust. With Avid's Tri-AlignTCaliper Positioning SystemT, aligning the caliper to the rotor literally takes seconds. Just loosen the CPST bolts a little, and then squeeze the brake lever while re-tightening the bolts. Perfect caliper alignment-just like that.
. Intergrated Reservoir: With TaperBore TechnologyT we've integrated the reservoir and master cylinder on our hydraulic disc-brake levers to create a super-sleek (and even lighter) lever design.,
. DOT 5.1: Heat is an enemy of any brake system, so advancements in heat management, mean advancements in your ride. You see, we found that in our systems DOT 5.1 takes almost 3 times longer to boil than DOT 4, thus allowing flawless fade-free performance in even more extreme conditions.
. Reach Adjust: When one finger has the power to control your ride, adjusting the levers to perfectly match your unique hands is seriously important-that's why we put Reach Adjust on all of our levers.
. 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.
. MatchMaker Compatible: Save weight and clutter on the bar with MatchMaker. This system holds AVID levers, a number of SRAM triggers and the RockShox PushLoc control-all with one tidy, light clamp.

You're reviewing: Avid Elixir 3 Grey 2012 - Disc Brakes

When Avid set out to design the best disc brakes in the world, they knew that simple stopping power wasn’t going to be enough. The best brake would also have to work in perfect harmony with the rider’s hand, giving precise control, and be easier to install than other products on the market. Mission accomplished.

It is little wonder that Avid continues to be the weapon of choice for World Champions such as Steve Peat. Cartridge bearings, carbon fibre and patented adjustment systems ensure your safety and comfort are paramount, along with a level of finesse and finishing that simply makes the mouth drool! Now with the expansion of the Elixir brake series, everyone can get the chance to use the best hydraulic braking system around…
