Rated 4 out of 5 by Peds223 Good kit if used correctly.
This is a good kit if used correctly,you need to degas the DOT fluid a number of times,same with the caliper and the lever. The more time you spend on it the better the result.Good kit all the same,easy to do once you get the hang of it. Be aware though,it is also easy to get a bad bleed if you don't take time over it or use old dot fluid, for a fiver get a fresh bottle. You also get the relevant bleed blocks to your brake which is a bonus as they are 3-5 quid a pop if bought separate. Only drawback is the plastic syringe which after a few uses becomes difficult to withdraw easily,even with rinsing out after use. Then again,these can be replaced for a couple of quid on the web. Not to bad,good bleed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by dimpi4 Gets the job done
It was my first kit/experience to bleed the AVID Elixir-1. It was easy and quick. And not even that dirty. Kit has everything you need to get you started, and enough DOT fluid for few times.
Only thing is that the instructions that come from avid are not as complete (or informative) as i have hoped for. So i have had done some on-line search to know exactly what is going on.

It will do the job (just), but its clear that not much thought or testing went into making this product, it could easily be made to work better. Its impossible to pressurise the system because the even the slightest amount of pressure on the plunger, leads to oil gushing out from where the red twist fit screws on to the syringe (i had to add a fair amount of PTFE tape). Also, how much would it have hurt to make the hoses about 20mm longer? they're stupidly short, specially when it comes to connecting to the lever. I'll fit a longer hose before i use it next.

Le siringhe quando messe in pressione (usato per freni XO TRAIL) perdono molto dai tubi di raccordo ed aspirano aria. Il tubo di raccordo è troppo corto e non è agevole chiudere la pinzetta rossa. Molto meglio le siringhe del kit professional che non hanno perdite ed un tubo più lungo. Consiglio quindi di spendere qualcosa in più ed acquistare il kit professional.

Rated 1 out of 5 Expensive for what turned out to be a single use product
The hose clamps damage the hose, creating small holes which means when you try to use the kit again you will just suck air in and be unable to bleed the brake. For a single use it is OK but for a kit which almost costs as much as a new low level brake its value is questionable. I wont be buying avid again unfortunately as I did have a great deal of brand loyalty in the past. I recommend looking at this product as a single use item when evaluating its value and comparing it to getting it bled professionally or buying a new brake.

La confezione prevede tutto il necessario per lo spurgo.
Ci sono anche un' ogiva e uno spinotto, per accorciare eventualmente un tubo, (uno solo).

Rated 5 out of 5 by Steve777 Great result and easy to use.
I have never bled hydraulic brakes before, but just built up a new bike and the brake hoses were too long. I bought this kit, and by following the enclosed instructions, managed to successfully shorten the brake hoses and bleed the brakes. All the bits and pieces I needed to complete the entire job were included in the kit, and the instructions were very clear and easy to follow. My brakes feel just as good as they did when they were brand new.
