Avid Elixir brakes are one of best brakes on the market. One, they are light weight. Two, the brakes pads are super easy to install. The only complaint is that the price should be lower. The price of one pair almost equals that of my vehicles brakepad.
Super easy drop-in replacement for OE pads, which gave reliable performance for several seasons. Super easy assuming you have a piston tool such as the Park Tool PP-1.2 Hydraulic Piston Press, which I do. Pads are quiet and powerful in all conditions.
