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.

DOT 5.1
Heat is an enemy of any brake system, so advancements in heat management, mean advancements in your ride. You see, Avid found that in their 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.

Integrated Reservoir
With TaperBore Technology™ Avid have integrated the reservoir and master cylinder on their hydraulic disc-brake levers to create a super-sleek (and even lighter) lever design.

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.

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 Geometry™ represents 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; they designed their 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 Avid's Elixir and Code levers. It saves weight, looks super-sleek, improves lever feedback and most importantly–gives you more power and control.

Tool-Free Reach Adjust
All the adjustability of Avid's Reach Adjust without having to dig into your tools. Bring your levers in or dial them out—a few turns are all it takes with Tool-Free Reach Adjust.

Top-loading Pads
When the only thing between you and the trail is bike maintenance, every second matters. With Avid's top-loading pads, new disc-brake pads can be installed without taking off the wheel, working under the calliper or doing any upside-down pad juggling, so you’ll be ready to ride much quicker.

Tri-Align™ Calliper Positioning System™
Another original Avid technology making your life better—there’s never been an easier brake to install and adjust. With Avid’s Tri-Align™Calliper Positioning System™, aligning the calliper to the rotor literally takes seconds. Just loosen the CPS™ bolts a little, and then squeeze the brake lever while re-tightening the bolts. Perfect calliper alignment—just like that.
