From XC racers to freeriders, Avid's Elixir 3 Hydraulic Disc Brake is a favorite amongst MTBers in the know because its value-to-technology ratio is through the roof. Avid's Taperbore technology and Power Reserve Geometry deliver great modulation and pinpoint stops. Increased power comes courtesy of a super-stiff, 2-piece caliper that contains larger pistons and DOT 5.1 fluid for better heat dissipation and resistance to brake fade. Plus, the Elixir's unique integrated reservoir provides a major weight reduction and a sleek look. It even comes complete with Avid's HS1 rotor.
