Avid Elixir 3 Disc Brakeset + 160mm HS1 Rotors 2014
The Elixir 3 is the perfect blend of power, performance and value. With the same excellent performance as its big brother the Elixir CR, the Elixir 3 is a less expensive version with a little added weight. The Elixir 3 features TaperBore technology found in the more expensive brakes offered by Avid. TaperBore refers to the patent pending closure system that shaves weight, looks sleek, and improves lever feedback, and provides ultimate power and control. Enjoy the top- loading pad feature. Replace pads without even dropping your wheel! New disc- brake pads can be installed without taking the wheel off. The Tri- Align caliper positioning system makes it easy to align your caliper to the rotor. With all these features, and excellent braking power, this is one obvious upgrade to your rig!

Deep Stroke Modulation ™
The boundary between fact sudden braking and brake so suddenly that you skate, is minimal. A Stroke Modulation allows riders to perfectly navigate that line problem and even control the most powerful brakes with finesse.
With TaperBore ™ technology, we integrated the reservoir and master cylinder on our hydraulic brake levers hard in order to create a very elegant (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). Power Reserve Geometry ™ Avid is by itself a way of thinking about the physics of leverage and comfort of your hands. This philosophy is fundamentally different than others on the market 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, closer than anyone has ever dared to market. This reduces the inner lever stroke and an arc that naturally hugs your fingers, allowing you to provide greater stopping power. What's great is that every Avid lever has it.
TaperBore ™ Technology
The term "TaperBore" refers to a unique and revolutionary locking system patent pending for our new Elixir and Code levers. It is lighter, has a very sleek, improves leverage and especially gives you more power and control.
Mounting plates from above
When maintaining your bike is the only thing between you and the road, every second counts. With our mounting pads from the top, the new disc brake pads can be installed without removing the wheel without having to work under the caliper or pad juggling upside down, so you'll be ready to go again faster.
