Rated 5 out of 5 by Light, strong Light and strong brakes. They have modulation, but it's not much needed in DJ. 08 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfetto Il rapporto qualità-prezzo è ottimo, offre tanta sicurezza nella frenata ed è perfetto in qualsiasi condizione climatica. Le garanzie che offrono questi freni è davvero impeccabile... Consigliatissimo per chi come me ha appena iniziato a praticare questo sport... 30 June 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Неплох, как набор запчастей для elixir 3 Имею 2 тормоза elixir 3, один elixir 1 - первый год работали более-менее. На второй сезон начали течь. Постоянно приходится прокачивать. пару раз перебирал калиперы. Текут только задние. Зимой тупят, рубашки гидролинии лопаются на морозе (от -15C) Помогает обмотать их изолентой. Одна ручка сосет воздух. Лучше брать хотя-бы elixir 7 (они работают без проблем уже 2 года - зима/лето) Elixir 1 заказал просто как набор запчастей - 40$ отличная цена за новый калипер, ручку, колодки и ротор бонусом. 14 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by parfait pour le dirt, slop, parck et street ce frein et très bien pour tous ce qui est "vtt freestyle" car la gaine est trés longue (je peut faire 10 tours de guidon) et donc envoyer plein de barspin et tallwhip. il est style on/off donc stop bien en urgence et n'est pas trop lourd. de plus pour ce prix ce n'est que du bonheur! cependant il faire attention a ce que la gaine ne fasse pas de noeud 03 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Bon mais sans plus Bon produit, freinage progressif et sur. Le ressort qui ramène les plaquettes n'est pas assez puissant donc les plaquettes ont tendance à être très proche du disque et à faire du bruit de temps en temps. Les trous ovales de réglage ne sont pas assez large. J'ai été obligé de les élargir pour pouvoir régler la mâchoire correctement. 15 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by BRAKES Mazin control for 20 quid deffanatly not a long termer but as a replacement or stop gap AWSOME BUY BUY 06 May 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Poor feel. I have removed these from my bike as I could never get a good feel out of them, lever feel was bad, wouldn't apply pressure till right at the end of their stroke. The bite of the brake didn't seem to be there at all and took time to stop. 06 May 2014

Looking to fit one of these to an old set of forks(marzocchi all mountain 2006/7) for the misses, but these are an old set of forks which are the I.S. type mount.
I'm not sure if I need to buy an adapter or is it supplied with these already?
I know a question like this has been asked here before but I found the answer a bit vague.
Thanks.

Answer: 
This brake comes with a Post Mount adaptor for the applicable rotor size selected.

However for fitting to an IS mount fork, simply select the IS 51mm mount option on the suggested mount adaptor below; then select which rotor size will be ran with the Front brake.

Answers

Answer: 
Avid are the only brakes to use the CPS (Caliper Positioning System) with the conical washers system. Not all setups will require the washers though.
These Elixir 1 brakes will require suitable mount adaptors depending on the size of rotor being used.

Answers

Answer: 
Bleeding your brakes is the process of changing or refreshing the fluid in them.
This may be due to air bubbles in the brake pipe or old or contaminated fluid, or during replacement of brake pipe due to damage.

You'll notice that your brakes don't feel as firm or effective as they had done when they were new, when you pull the lever it feels 'squishy'

This is when you brakes need bleeding.
Freshly bled brakes will feel firm and give better feedback through the lever, and give you better braking ability than a set that need doing.

How to buy

I live in Australia and here the breaks are used in reverse order (front break is the right one and the rear is the left one). I crumpled the left break lever and I have to replace so my doubt is between front or rear break which one I have to buy?

Answer: 
These brakes levers are ambidextrous. So you will need to select the rear to get the correct hose length (1600mm) as the handle mount does not matter as they can be used either side.
