Avid Code R Disc Brake

Code’s little brother just got tougher. With an all new, forged dual-diameter, four-piston caliper, Code R offers increased power without compromising control or feel. With a simplified design to make it a little easier on the wallet, Code R maintains the Code family values of reliability, strength and ridiculously easy serviceability. Now featuring the fade-free braking of TaperBore Technology and the sleek yet oh-so-powerful integrated reservoir on top of Avid’s proven Power Reserve Geometry™, the Code R will make you think before you call this brake anyone’s “little” brother.

Avid Code R Disc Brake Specifications:

  • Weight: 395 grams (160mm rotor; front post mount)
  • Lever Material: Aluminum Lever, 3-cartridge Bearing lever pivot
  • Caliper Design: 4-Piston, Dual-Diameter, Forged 2-piece
  • Finish: Graphite Grey, Lever: Aluminum
  • Rotor: G3 CleanSweep 160mm, 185mm, 203mm
  • Pad: Organic, Top Loading
  • Fluid: DOT 5.1
  • Mount: Ambidextrous
  • Adjustment: Adjustable Banjo, Tri-Align Caliper Positioning
  • Special Features: TaperBore Technology, Reversible break-away lever, Split Clamp, MatchMaker Compatible

Avid Code R Disc Brake 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.
  • 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 5 out of 5 by Very powerful These brakes are high maintenance... need to be bled more often than other brands I've used but wow, they're very powerful. Way more powerful than my Hope tech M4s (as much as I hate to admit it). So much so, I'm seriously considering getting another set of the Code R's for my other bike. 08 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by you may see 'avid' and think never in a million years but trust me! ive experienced elixirs and other avid brakes and i know they are poor. i have these on my trail bike and no lie they are immense, i also own saints and they aren't far off the mark. i would say they are equal power wise with xt too. i dont just ride trail centres, these brakes have been riden in the Lakes on some of the uk's most testing and technical natural riding! Avid have done very well with these brakes, never had any problems with them pumping up or leaking. 06 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by potente e modulabile Monto l'impianto con dei dischi flottanti clarks da 203mm La frenata risulta potente e ben modulabile , la tubazione dell'impianto posteriore è molto lunga , da accorciare per un montaggio ottimale 29 November 2013

Answer: 
These are post mount calipers but you'll need to buy the mounts and rotors separately. If your frame is IS then you can buy a mount that will ensure it fits.

Answer: 
These brakes are supplied as lever, hose and caliper; pre-bled and ready to fit. Rotors and any applicable mount adaptors will need to be purchased separately.
As a general rule, 160mm is enough for most Commuting/XC/general applications, 180mm front 160mm rear for slightly more aggressive riding, 180mm front and rear for Freeride/DH/All Mountain, and 200 or 203mm for Competition level Downhill.

Answer: 
I'm pretty sure these don't come with rotors or mounts, you'll need to but these separately. As for rotor size, that'll depend on a lot of factors... Like riding style, rider weight, the type of trails, and probably the type of bike too.

I run 203mm rotors front and back on my DH bike and 203 (front) and 185 (rear) on my AM bike.

These brakes are very powerful if you're riding XC you could run 160 front and rear or perhaps put a 180 or 185 on the front if you want some extra power.

Hello there,

I have a pair of Avid elixir 5 now and wondering if the Code R would fit on the same adapters and work with the existing rotors??

Answer: 
These brakes use the same CPS mounting technology as the the Elixir 5 brakes and should swap straight over; compatibility with the existing rotors also should be fine.
