Avid Brake Series

Avid manufactures top-quality brakes that come with matching adapters, discs and pads for you to use with ease. The Avid brake series includes:


If you’re a hardcore cross racer, then the Avid Shorty cantilever brakes are meant for you. Although they’re not the strongest among the Avid brake collection, they work great at scrubbing off speed.

  • Avid shorty 4- these have a forged aluminum body and stainless steel hardware. They have an added strut to the conventional cantis that runs from the pivot to the cable attachment point. The centralized mount gear and the pads are designed so that you never have to deal with vibrations. The brake pads come with washers—meaning you can rotate the pads into the position you want.
  • Avid Shorty 6 comes with a cartridge brake pad holder and a center mount pad to reduce chatter. You also get an oversized spring to increase reliability. These lightweight brakes are easy to switch between road-type brake shoes and pads made for carbon rims.


If you want to be confident in your deceleration, then Avid Elixir brakes are what you need. Take advantage of the Elixir braking system, which is easy to install and remove.

  • Avid Elixir 1 - Hydraulic Disc Brakes, which offer high-level traction control. It is an affordable option but has a slightly bulkier master cylinder. Avid Elixir 1 is the most reliable among the series.
  • Avid Elixir 3 - Avid Elixir 3 offers the perfect blend between power and performance. It features a twin-bolt clamp, which makes fitting a lot simpler. The HS1 lightweight rotor and DOT 5.1 fluids used with the Elixir 3 brakes make it better at heat resistance, reducing noise and achieving finer control.
  • Avid Elixir 5 - A disc brake set-up that includes everything you need for high efficiency and powerful stopping every time. With an avid brake bleeding kit, you can easily and quickly bleed the brake pads.
  • Elixir 7 and 9 - These are the new all-mountain-oriented brakes from Avid. They both have a 4-piston caliper design and share the second-generation Taperbore master cylinder design. Both brakes also feature aluminum caliper construction but differ in the lever material.


True to their promise, Avid Juicy hydraulic disc brakes deliver in material and performance. These brakes cut down without compromising the braking experience and the excellent feel Avid brakes are known for.

  • Avid Juicy 3 - This classical brake combines the dependability of Avid brakes and power famous in the Avid Juicy brakes. It is simple and leverages power with reverse geometry.
  • Avid Juicy 5 - This basic hydraulic disc brake comes with a split clamp on the lever to make fitting easier than before. Even when it is hot, you never have to deal with scratchy noises or the brake being avaricious. The performance standards remain the same, even in the rain, which boosts the confidence for your ride.
  • Avid Juicy 7 - The Avid Juicy 7 brake pads pack good stopping power, are easy to bleed and have excellent modulation. The Avid Juicy 7 also has practical features that make it an outstanding choice. These brakes also have a power reserve geometry that makes them easy to adjust.
