Avid BB5 Mechanical Disc Brake

Entry-level, schmentry-level. The BB5 offers our Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System, tool-free pad replacement, a melt-forged body and an inboard pad adjustment knob. One try and you’ll wonder if the BB5s are really entry-level brakes.


  • Tri-Align™ Caliper 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™Caliper Positioning System™, aligning the caliper to the rotor literally takes seconds.
