Most of the levers can be used for both the front and rear brakes - handy if you want to use your brake grips the other way around, and a gift from heaven if you break a lever in the middle of the woods. Avid brake levers are easy to install, easy to adjust and a real pleasure to pull.
Bend Zone Avid knows that falls can occur and has therefore developed the Bend Zone. In a violent collision, where a conventional brake lever would fail, the Bend Zone ensures that the brake lever bends and the grip body is spared major damage. So not only can you prevent the worst without having to brake like Fred Feuerstein, you don't even need a new grip body.
Grip width adjustment If you can control your ride with just one finger, it’s extremely important to adjust the brake grips exactly to the unique shape of your hands. This is exactly why all Avid brake levers have a grip width adjustment.
Speed Dial: With the patented Speed Dial leverage adjustment system, you can determine the perfect balance between force and modulation in your linear pull rim or mechanical disc brakes. The pull point can now be changed by means of an easily adjustable knob on the front of the brake lever. With the Speed Dial knob you can adjust your brakes anytime, anywhere and without tools.
Details: - Compatible with mechanical disc brakes and Linear Pull side pull brakes - Speed Dial Performance - Patented leverage - Adjustable without tools while riding
Excellent brakes, I use this in combination with BB7 disc brakes and am very satisfied. It is also useful that you can change the angle of the cable via the red button on the brake lever to whatever you like most.
Uitstekende remgrepen, ik gebruik deze in combinatie met BB7 schijfremmen en ben zeer tevreden. Handig is ook dat je via het rode knopje op de remgreep de hoek van de kabel kan wijzigen naar wat je zelf het prettigst vind.
