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.

Answer: 
Hose length varies from one brake to the next, but you should expect around 750-900mm for the front, and 1350-1500mm for the rear. The brakes are supplied pre-bled and ready to fit.
