Avid Elixir 9 Carbon Disc Brake

An updated TaperBore design incorporates a new air-trap feature, resulting in ridiculously smooth control you can count on. Combining a two-piece caliper and HS1 cross-drilled rotors make Elixir 9 simultaneously smooth and powerful. The introduction of tool-free reach and contact adjust turns our brakes into your brakes, letting you dial in the perfect feel in under a minute.

Specifications:

  • Weight: 385 grams
  • Lever Material: Carbon fibre lever, Aluminium Body
  • Caliper Design: 2 Piston, Forged 2-piece Aluminium, Adjustable Banjo
  • Rotor: 160/180/200mm HS1 Rotors
  • Pad: Sintered, Top Loading
  • Fluid: DOT 5.1
  • Mount: Ambidextrous
  • Adjustment: Contact Point Adjustment, Tool-Free Reach Adjustment, Adjustable
  • Special Features: TaperBore Technology, Matchmaker Compatible, Split Clamp

Technologies:

  • Contact Point Adjustment™: We’re proud to be the company that invented this feature before people even knew how much they needed it. Contact Point Adjustment allows you customize the point in the lever’s throw where the brake actually engages. That helps you do two simple–but important–things: 1. You get to pick the position you’d like your fingers to be in when your brakes grip. That means you can perfectly match your fingers’ comfort with the brake’s power—without having to move the pads. 2. Balancing both brake levers so they make contact at the same point has never been easier. Contact Point Adjustment is not a reach adjuster (although all of our levers have that, too). Whether you prefer the modulation of a longer throw, the instantaneous power of a short throw, or any of the zillion options in-between, this feature will help you dial in the perfect ride.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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
  • Tool-Free Reach Adjust : All the adjustability of our Reach Adjust without having to dig into your tools. Bring your levers in or dial them out—a few turns are all it takes with Tool-Free Reach Adjust.
  • 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 4.4 out of 5 by 16 reviewers.
Rated 4 out of 5 by è un ottimo prodotto e di buona qualità! E un buon freno con una buona capacità frenante in qualsiasi condizione! 07 September 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good upgrade Upgraded from Avid Juicy to these. Great feel through lever and stop pretty good. 03 August 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Freios muito bons, bem modulados e com ajustes rápidos nos manetes. Freios de qualidade superior, com boa modulação e ajustes simples. 24 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by I go over my handlebars! There's so many adjustments that you can make that make this brake able to adapt to your bike and your riding. Little things like changing the hose angle. The only thing though, to get the brakes working the best they could, you need to bleed them after you get them. Don't get me wrong they will still brake pretty fast. 24 April 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Super stoppers I have used elixer 7's for the last number of years and fitted these to a new frame that I was building up. I am really happy with them. They are light in weight and it's easy to modulate the required braking effort to match the "here and now". When you need to pull an emergency stop, they are more than well capable of obliging, you don't have to go to the handlebar to achieve this either 12 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent Great brakes, work really well. Easy change over. Would recommend. 21 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best stoppers I have used. Very good set of brakes, I've found they have plenty of stopping power with 160 rotors f & r. Reach adjustment is good, could live without the contact adjustment though. It's easy to align caliper with rotor, easy to change pads, & simple to bleed (don't know what some people are on about). At the sale price these are a steal. 16 January 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by The best mountain bike brakes This is the best brakes that i have ever used. I had a little trouble adjusting it the first time. 29 December 2013

Answer: 
Lo bueno de estos frenos es que podes eligir de que lado del manugrio lo quedes. Lo único que cambia entre el freno de atrás y adelante, seria que largo es la manguera que contiene el liquido. Si tenes un marco XL va ser dificil, la manguera podría ser muy corta. Entonces vas a tener que comprarte una manguera mas larga e sangrar todo el sistema de vuelta.

Answer: 
Yes it comes with everything. Lever, calliper, cable, rotor. It already comes complete, no need to pre bleed it. Once installed you can take it for a ride. Only thing it doesn't come is the bleed kit set, but no other brand includes it ( wouldn't need it until you feel like it anyway)

Answer: 
These brakes are setup for the UK standard which is Left Lever - Rear and Right Lever - Front.

The hoses can be swapped over when you receive them using the Avid bleed kit (which includes Olives and Barbed Inserts); or your Local Bike Shop will be able to do this for a small fee.

Answers

Answer: 
They should be able to fit. FROM 160MM ROTORS OR LOWER, it should fit perfectly. When i got mine, I had spare parts that were designed for different forks, so you wouldn't need to get other parts.
If you want to get rotors bigger than 160mm, you should check with the fork. Search the fork that's installed on the bike in the internet, and under specifications, it will tell you the "maximum rotor size" possible for that fork.
Hope it helps.
