Avid Elixir 9 Trail Disc Brake

Your bike is a highly evolved trail-slaying machine. Your brakes should be too. The all-new Elixir 9 Trail removes limitations, giving you lightweight XC efficiency combined with monster all-mountain power. With a 4-piston dual-diameter caliper and trail-tuned modulation, this is control and confidence for any off-road situation.

Avid Elixir 9 Trail Disc Brake Specifications:

  • Weight: 350 grams (Carbon blade/Front direct mount/160mm rotor)
  • Lever Material: Carbon Fiber, Aluminum Body
  • Caliper Design: 2 Piece forged aluminum/Top loading pads
  • Finish: Black Ano
  • Pad: Steel-backed Organic
  • Fluid:Dot 5.1
  • MountAmbidextrous
  • Adjustment: Tooled reach adjust/Contact adjust/Banjo adjust
  • Special Features: TaperBore Technology, MatchMaker X Compatible, Split Clamp
  • Intended Use:XC/Trail/AM/FR
  • System:Open system/4 piston, dual diameter
  • Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System:No
  • Tool-Free Pad Replacement:Yes
  • Ambidextrous:Yes
  • Stainless Hardware:Yes

Avid Elixir 9 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.
  • 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.
  • 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 5 out of 5 by Amazing stopping power i tried these brakes on a demo bike and they feel really nice and the stopping power is definatly more than enough for any enduro bike, im going to get some for my freeride bike (scott voltage fr10) 04 June 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Buenos frenos Compré estos frenos para sustituir unos AVID JUICY 5 en mi bici. La potencia de frenado es mucho mayor que mis anteriores frenos, la regulación de las pastillas los hace muy personalizables. En general he obtenido una frenada mas potente y controlada. Los uso con disco de 200mm delante y detrás. El poder ajustar el la posición del latiguillo es una ventaja a la hora de cablear. 14 November 2013

Hi, im getting the boardman 2014 650b HT which has avid elixir 3 brakes fitted but im looking to upgrade them, would these be a straight swap do you know?
they have a 180 front rotor and a 160 rear..
i really wanted formula rx brakes but if these are just a straight swap that may be easier.
thanks.

Answer: 
Yes, all the Avid brake systems run Post-mount calipers, so you can switch one for the other no problem. If keeping the same rotor size, you can re-use your existing mount adaptors, although I would suggest new rotors to match the new calipers.

Answer: 
It is not recommended to mix Elixir brakes with Ice-Tech rotors as spacing on the braking surface differs slightly which can cause performance issues.
