Feel the power. Love the feel. This full-featured brake can stop on a dime or be feathered with precision you have to feel to believe. The Sram X0 disc brake packs all the power and control you have come to expect from the Avid Elixir line of brakes and comes in a slim, trim package tough enough for any trail surprises. All-new forged aluminum calipers and lever bodies deliver robust power at a fraction of the weight, while tool-free contact point adjustment puts you just a few clicks away from your perfect ride. Includes organic pads with aluminum backing plate.
Hint for breaking-in: New disc brake pads require a certain break-in period in order to provide the full brake power. The following procedure has proved oneself: drag braking on a downhill until the brake power noticeably increases. Then let the brake rotor cool out. Afterwards do 20 full stops braking from a medium speed. Attention: the rotors get very hot, do not touch them!
