 These brakes are soooo temperamental! Please don't waste your money on these bakes or if they come stock with a bike you want to get consider
swaping them out for something that will actually work consistently instead of super touchy one corner then almost no power the next corner. also if your going down a steep and your on the brakes for a while the leavers tend to get farther away from the handle bar and you have to let off them and pump them a couple times to get em back to normal. Mabey i just got a lemon cause everyone else that comented here seems to like them but i just wouldnt recomend them

 Awesome brakes, the allow for alot of control on steeps and when going fast into corners. I have rarely had the front skid when I brake really hard on loose rock or steep corners. This is an ideal feature for people getting into downhill or freeride.

 they are inconsistent. even after bleeding. the pads are too close to the rotor and are not adjustable.
I am saving for the new shimano XT...

 These brakes worked far better than my 4 piston Hayes stroker ace's which is incredible in my opinion. So far i haven't found any problems with them.

Avid 2011 Elixir R (MSRP $0) — PURE. SIMPLE. PERFORMANCE. Pure, simple performance is what you can expect with the Elixir R. It features TaperBore Technology, tool-free reach adjustment, Power Reserve Geometry, Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System, and drip-free bleeding just like every AVID hydraulic disc brake. The only bell or whistle we opted out of is Contact Point Adjustment. A great match for the SRAM X7 family. Available June 2011.
