Avid Elixir 5 Disc Brake - Black 2013

WHEN THE FUTURE IS UNKNOWN, GOOD BRAKES ARE PRICELESS.

At Avid, we believe in Trickle-Down Brakenomics. Elixir 5 offers the premium ride quality found in higher-end Elixirs in a simpler and more affordable package. With features like our modulation-enhancing TaperBore Technology, powerful two-piece caliper design and easy access tooled reach adjust, this brake doesn’t skimp out.

Avid Elixir 5 Disc Brake Specifications :

  • Weight- 392 grams (160mm rotor; front post mount)
  • Lever Material - Tungstun Grey Aluminum, Carbon Fiber Lever option, Aluminum Body
  • Caliper Design- 2 Piston, Forged 2-piece Aluminum
  • Rotor - HS1 (140mm rear) 160/180/200mm
  • Pad- Organic, Top Loading
  • Fluid- DOT 5.1
  • Mount- Ambidextrous
  • Adjustment- Reach Adjustment, Tri-Align Caliper Positioning,
  • Special Features- TaperBore Technology, MatchMaker Compatible, Split Clamp

Avid Elixir 5 Disc Brake Features :

  • MatchMaker Compatible - Save weight and clutter on the bar with MatchMaker. This system holds AVID® levers, a number of SRAM triggers and the RockShox PushLoc control—all with one tidy, light clamp.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Reach Adjust - When one finger has the power to control your ride, adjusting the levers to perfectly match your unique hands is seriously important—that’s why we put Reach Adjust on all of our levers.
  • 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent brakes Model 2012 used with Hope Mono Mini-M4 Saw Works perfectly in all weather conditions Spring Summer Autumn Winter -25 to +30 drove about 5,000 kilometers no problems excellent brakes 12 April 2014
Rated 3 out of 5 by Better content and selection options required. After reading other peoples comments and reading the description I decided to go with a front set of these. I wanted front 180 mm. The description say ambidextrous mount so there's me thinking that it will fit no problem, does it? no. After thinking I'm being stupid and spending a good hour trying to install calliper from hard to find instruction (even after following link on feeble instructions within box). I find that I need a mount. Now I can only find a 185 mm front mount from Avid on CRC which may fit if I left out some of the spacers that may come with the kit. I did find however on here that shimano do a 180 mm mount which people have commented fits with Avid brakes. So I cannot comment on how well these brakes work but they look good and the leaver is nice and fits with my existing gear leaver i get the impression that these brakes will not have any issues with any gear leaver set-up. So what need to be added to description is that they are a is mount kit and that if you require ps mount for 180 mm then an additional kit is required. Missed out on a great days riding today and likely now tomorrow as well. 09 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by These Breaks are High quality I can recommend these brakes. i got them on my Nukeproof TR PRO and they work excellent in all terrain. they are easy to refill and i never had any trouble finding instructions on how to do that. 25 March 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by Great at first. Easy to fit look good. I have the rear, hose is very long (2 x Stem wrap) great for tail whips. Worked well at first but after 2 months went mushy and now not much use. Never bled disc brakes before local shop recommend it, would cost as much to fix as a new pair. Waste of money. 16 March 2014

Rated 5 out of 5 by Perfect Match Excellent Product. Never had any Issues with the whole Avid Range. 18 February 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Can't fault it. I brought these in the January sale (front and rear) and they came including new discs which I wasn't expecting! It was an easy fitting, but the hoses are very long can be viewed in a bad way or a good way. I guess I no longer have an excuse not to learn bar spins haha. When I took them for a ride (XC ending with some DH) I can't fault them. Very responsive! These were an upgrade from the standard ones on my rock hopper after those brakes packed in after two years, but these avids were a lot lighter than them. I can't comment on weight compared to others on the market as these were my first set of brakes 17 February 2014

Compatibility with older bikes?

I have a Jamis bike which is about 10 or so years old. I cant afford to change it at the moment so am looking to up spec it a little. It has a mechanical front disc brake and I wanted to change this to a hydraulic version. How can I work out if the Elixir 5 will fit my bike?
Many thanks :-)

Answers

Answer: 
The mount on your fork appears to be the International Standard (IS) mount which is 51mm Eye to Eye. To run an Elixir 5; a caliper mount adaptor would be required for fitting, as Avid use the Post Mount (PM) system; 74mm Eye to Eye.

This mount selection is in relation to the rotor size required; for which it would be best to contact our Technical Department below with your requirements and we can advise further -

Answer: 
The Hydraulic version fits in the same way as the current mechanical disc brake you are using.
You may need an different adapter depending on what size rotor you intend to use. If you intend to stick with the rotor you already have then it is just a straight swap from Mechanical to Hydraulic.

Does this Avid Elixir 5 come as a complete kit with pre-built hoses included?

I'm hoping to replace my current brakes on my downhill bike with these. I currently have the same brakes, Avid Elixir 5, but the sizes are a little different. Front is 203mm and rear 185mm. So is a 200mm a straight replacement for a 203mm and is 180mm a straight replacement for a 185mm

Thanks

Answer: 
From what i know all Brakes from CRC come with hoose and are bleded,if by kit you mean both brakes (front and rear),the answer is no,100$ for a brake (front OR rear)
All current Avid brakes use 180 and 200mm rotors rather than 185 and 203mm. No real performance difference.
