Replacement brake lever inclusive clamp suited for Avid Code R disc brakes (fits also Elixir 7 / 7 Trail). The hydraulic hose is not included.
The term “TaperBore” refers to a unique patent-pending closure system in Avid‘s Elixir and Code levers. It saves weight, looks super-sleek, improves lever feedback and most importantly–gives you more power and control.
With TaperBore Technology™ Avid has integrated the reservoir and master cylinder on Avid‘s hydraulic disc-brake levers to create a super-sleek (and even lighter) lever design.
Power Reserve Geometry
At the end of the day, a brake lever simply multiples the force your hand generates (just like the nut cracker). Avid’s Power Reserve Geometry™represents a way of thinking about the physics of leverage and your hand’s comfort. This philosophy is fundamentally different than others in the business of brakes. Due to pivot placement, physics dictates that with other brake levers your fingers tend to slip off the ends as you pull. Avid is different. Avid designed the levers with the pivot closer to the handlebar, in fact, closer than anyone else in the industry. The resulting lever movement has less inward travel, an arc that’s closer to your fingers’ natural motion and delivers more force to the brake. The cool part is, every Avid lever has it.
