Avid Elixir 7 Trail Disc Brake

Don’t be fooled by its svelte 355-gram profile. With a new 4-piston dual-diameter caliper, the Elixir 7 Trail packs a powerful punch.

Whether you’re bombing rowdy descents or flowing through technical rock gardens, this is a brake that helps you do what you do: Ride farther, and ride faster.

Avid Elixir 7 Trail Disc Brake Technologies:

  • 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.
  • MatchMaker and MMX Compatible: Save weight and clutter on the bar with Matchmaker. It holds Avid levers, SRAM® triggers, and various RockShox® controls, all with one tidy, light, clamp--a dream come true for handlebar component footprint conservationists the world over. Available in two versions: Matchmaker™ X integrates the RockShox®XLoc and is compatible with XX and X0 brakes. Standard Matchmaker™is also available and works with any split-clamp design and RockShox® PushLoc.

Rated 4.5 out of 5 by 12 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Тормоза супер) Отлично тормозят. Проблем с ними не испытывал, не смотря на то, что зимой летом их использую, еще ничего не потекло и жидкость еще не подливал. В общем я ими доволен). 17 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Those brakes are great! Once again AVID didn't let me down. I got a pair of those elixirs for over two weeks now, I've been riding some downhill,and I must addmit that they adjust easily, brake hard, and have great modulation. In addition they look great, and siut my 7point perfectly. 13 May 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good update for single piston Elixirs Bought these replacement for Elixir 5's on Specialized Stumpjumper. Has done good job so far and have nothing to complain about. Few tips for notice for: -These installs flat on adapter without CPS washers. With the washers caliber mounts too high. -Brake pads are not regular Elixir compatible. These use trail-pads. 29 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by X7 trail run with this brake system on 203mm quad disk it braking power awesome very very good!! i got before the Elixir "CR" brakes the x7 trail much much better 15 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Ace control, superb value The cables supplied are WAY too long, so you need to cut to length, re-bleed etc. I get the LBC to do this and an excellent neat tidy job was made of it. Great modulation & feel, after a couple of rides adjusted the lever extension, now it is perfectly comfortable. For spares order the Avid XO pads NOT elixir pads. The XO / elixir 7 & 9 are the same family of 4 piston brakes. The marketing is wrong when it says elixir brakes fit ALL elixirs (or rather they fit & work but are wrong! I have found the rear brake pumps up if dragged on long fast downhills. It cools down very quick but will vibrate a little once cooled, then will go back to how it was. I suspect this is more a pad / rotor combination are is certainly nothing to fret over. 25 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Just my 2 pence worth :-) I upgraded from elixir 5's which overhaul I was quite happy with. But just fancied something a bit more special for my Xc riding these trial 7's are perfect I have full control from just a nip on the brakes to full lockout and the ability to hold it at just before locking up I just feel in control. There are a lot of good brakes on the market but test a bike with these on to get the feel. Avid do get a lot of stick about squeal etc I don't have any probs as long as I take my time to set the brakes bang on. I have hsx 180mm rotors front and rear you may think over kill but I live in a hot country and this setup is just perfect for me. I find CRC hard to beat on price on most things and the service is good :-) keep up the discounts lol 17 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by superb power and modulation Tons of useable power with these brakes. No emergency stop on off power. Bought front and rear from crc, front was tool free adjust rear was alen key adjustment. Not a problem but would have preferred the option to buy either type, perhaps I got lucky with the front one as I was expecting both to require tool adjustment. Other than that amazing brakes for the money and light. 25 February 2014
Rated 2 out of 5 by expensive rrp guenuine part Totaly biased hatred of Avid after worst aftersales service. ( from Avid NOT from chainreactions ) I have ever known. Wont buy another Genuine Avid / Rockshox product. Buy Clarks. 10 February 2014

These brakes are supplied and listed separately; for a matching pair you will need to purchase both the 'front' anf 'rear' versions. The brakes are supplied as complete units - caliper, hose and lever pre-bled and ready to install. Brake rotors (and any applicable mount adaptors) will need to be purchased separately.
