Avid Code Disc Brake

When your biggest competition is the terrain ahead, CODE™ gives you the control and confidence to get there faster. TaperBore™ technology, sealed bearings and a powerful four-piston caliper provide the performance you need whether you’re flying downhill or picking your way through razor-edged rock gardens. At a mere 410 grams, CODE is lighter than most cross-country brakes on the market, proving that strength doesn’t have to weigh you down.

Features:

  • Weight:410 grams (160mm rotor; front post mount)
  • Lever Material: Black Aluminum Lever, 3-cartridge Bearing lever pivot
  • Caliper Design: 4-Piston, Dual-Diameter, Forged 2-piece
  • Finish: Ano Grey, Lever: Black
  • Pad: Organic, Top Loading
  • Fluid: DOT 5.1
  • Mount: Ambidextrous
  • Adjustment: Contact Point Adjustment, Tool-Free Reach Adjustment, Adjustable Banjo, Tri-Align Caliper Positioning
  • Special Features: TaperBore Technology, Reversible break-away lever, Split Clamp, MatchMaker Compatible

Technologies:

  • Bend Zone:We know that crashes happen, and that’s why we created Bend Zone. During a powerful hit—one that would break a normal lever—Bend Zone allows the lever to flex, saving the lever body from massive carnage. Not only will you be able to ride out of the woods without resorting to Flintstone-style braking, you won’t even have to get a new lever body.
  • Contact Point Adjustment™:We’re proud to be the company that invented this feature before people even knew how much they needed it. Contact Point Adjustment allows you customize the point in the lever’s throw where the brake actually engages. That helps you do two simple–but important–things: 1. You get to pick the position you’d like your fingers to be in when your brakes grip. That means you can perfectly match your fingers’ comfort with the brake’s power—without having to move the pads. 2. Balancing both brake levers so they make contact at the same point has never been easier. Contact Point Adjustment is not a reach adjuster (although all of our levers have that, too). Whether you prefer the modulation of a longer throw, the instantaneous power of a short throw, or any of the zillion options in-between, this feature will help you dial in the perfect ride.
  • 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, 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.
  • Intergrated Reservoir: With TaperBore Technology™ we’ve integrated the reservoir and master cylinder on our hydraulic disc-brake levers to create a super-sleek (and even lighter) lever design.
  • 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. 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.
  • TaperBore Technology™: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.
  • 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.
  • 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. Just loosen the CPS™ bolts a little, and then squeeze the brake lever while re-tightening the bolts. Perfect caliper alignment—just like that.

Rated 3.3 out of 5 by 3 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by Code Очень мощные 4-х поршневые тормоза, очень радует работа ручек, усилие одним пальцем. Несмотря на всю их мощь присутствует замечательная модуляция. Катаюсь не первый год на них проблем не испытывал, прокачиваются без проблем, да и качать их приходится очень редко, в стоке колодки органика, что также не может не радовать!)) Единственный минус это цена! Пора бы уже их сделать по дешевле, тем более сама модель выпускается с 2011 года. 27 August 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Good product, shoddy after sale service The Codes are ok in themselves, however I've found with both these and the Code R's that Avid's after sale service is very unhelpful and expensive. Break a lever blade(easily done) and that will set you back at least 40 quid as you can only buy the whole kit on the net (my LBS just got quoted 60 quid for just the lever blade!). Effectively, a broken, simple piece of metal is going to cost me half as much as full Zee brake. Don't know what Shimano's after sale service is like, but given the supposed step up in performance I'd definitely have a good look at the Zees before going for these. 16 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not happy the brakes start to freeze at minus 15C and below. I have the Code brakes (2013 edition) - all round good brakes. Weak points - some squealing. Another point - tested during winter time and found they start to freeze approx at minus 15 degrees celsius. This doesn't happen with previous Code editions, nor with Hope and even Hayes brakes. 29 January 2014

What is the exact length of the hydraulic lines for the rear brake version ?

Avid has two usual lengths for the hydraulic lines for the rear barke, either 1600mm or 1800mm, how long is this one (I need max 1600mm, I would like to avoid to shorten the tube and purge the system)
