 Avid 2011 Elixir 3 (MSRP $0) - POWER, PERFORMANCE AND VALUE: CHOOSE ALL THREE. With features that matter, the Elixir 3 offers ambidextrous levers complete with our standout TaperBore Technology and convenient tooled reach adjust. Being able to choose from two different colors and use the adjustable rear banjo to route your housing like the pros, well, that’s just cool. Not all pockets are deep, which is why we don’t consider things like comfort, control and reliability “features” – to us, these are rights of every Avid owner

 For the price modulation is brilliant and the lever feels spot on, power as expected for this price. Not the lightest or best when conditions get sketchy
