Since 1991, Avid has been at the forefront of improving brake technology. From their original ultra-light Tri-Align brakes, to their insanely powerful 4-piston Code disc brakes, to their wonderful ball-bearing mechanical-disc brakes, Avid knows what it takes to keep your bike under control.
Avid brakes are renowned for their superlative function. Their Speed Dial made customizing the feel of linear-pull brakes easier than ever before. And, uneven disc-brake levers are a thing of the past with Avid's much-appreciated Pad Contact-Point Adjustment Knob.
This little gem lets you set the levers to apply the brakes evenly and perfectly. And, you can rely on the addictive Avid power always being there thanks to the DOT 5.1 brake fluid they use, which has an extremely high boiling point.
And while Avid's brake function is impressive, they haven't forgotten about comfort and ergonomics. Avid's Power Reserve Geometry works with your hands, allowing the levers to follow the natural path of your fingers. Plus, the levers are ambidextrous, too, for those who like to ride with a moto or English setup.
Equally impressive is how easy Avid brakes are to install and use. Their ingenious Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System eliminates the headache of aligning the disc calipers with the rotors. And, bleeding the hydraulic fluid is a drip-free and precise process with their proven kit featuring syringes. And, kiss handlebar clutter goodbye with their MatchMaker clamp that lets you mount your Avid levers and SRAM shifters on the same handlebar clamp.
With Avid slowing you down, you'll carry more speed into turns, have more control on the steeps and enjoy solid stopping in all conditions! You'll love Avid's power and control. Plus, with their simple setup and superlative ergonomics you'll be riding faster, further and more often!
