Avid Elixir Brake Review

Rating:
The Good:

Amazing power Excellent modulation and 'feel'

The Bad:

The brakes spit out some brake dust, but nothing bad about performance at all

Overall Review:

I had Stroker Ace brakes on my DH bike last year, and they were pretty good overall. I get onto these brakes and they were amazing. More power, more modulation and they are lighter. When pulling the lever, the brake gets progressively more powerful. I had to adjust to this for a few days, but now I'm spoiled. Really soft feel at the lever, and good finish work. I'm pleasantly surprised, and that doesn't happen too often with me.
