Rotors: The company updated its rotors for the first significant time in 7 years. The steel HS1 will be used on XO through Elixir 3 models, while the two piece HSX has been developed for XX level brakes. A center lock version, the HSXCL, is also available. Instead of the venting slots found on old G2 rotors, the new models use drilled holes, which are lighter and less prone to squealing.
To help improve consistency of new brakes, Avid also rebuilt its entire line of factory bleed machines. This, Morland says, guarantees great performance with every new Elixir brake.
The X7 shares many of the same features, minus the contact adjust. It weighs 3 grams less per wheel, and costs $179 per wheel. The new Elixir 1, which uses Taperbore, but goes with out some other features (like updated rotors or the company popular tri align bolt system) should cost about $89 per wheel.
details make a big difference, said Avid Brand Manager Tyler Morland. weren the first player in hydraulic brakes, but we feel like we the best now.
Snow fell on our second day of testing Avid completely overhauled Elixir brakes. Then came a little hail. This was in Santa Cruz, in February, following a week of torrential rain. The trails were soggy, and rivulets of cold water flowed down the hillsides and water sprayed from our rear tires.
Avid engineers moved the bleed port from the contact adjust dial closer to the lever. The port now sits behind one large seal and a small external seal, rather than in between three small seals. air is in the system now, it will stay behind the seal and be easier to extract during the bleed process, Morland said.
for operating hydraulic disc brakes. Until then, nearly every other design relied on pushing a piston over a port in the master cylinder. Avid system, on the other hand, pushed a large piston into a tapered bore, moving more fluid into the system. That offered better power, improved fluid management and more consistency theory at least.

Also, Avid rotors will now come in 20mm increments: 140, 160, 180, and 200. Along with the sizing changes, the larger rotors have new, lighter adapters (the 200mm adapter weights 20 grams less than previous versions). Avid Air Max Thea Cool Grey will still offer the old 185mm and 203mm sized for at least two years to support current product.
brakes. The major work was focused around the master cylinder, where significant changes not only result in more consistency, but deliver more power and make the brake easier to bleed. Other refinements abound, too, including new rotor sizes, a tools free reach adjust and a detented contact adjust, among others.
This was exactly the sort of conditions that can have havoc on brakes. Just a few years ago, in similar conditions while testing brakes, the only sound other than rain pounding on the forest canopy was the warble of wet brakes squealing in protest. But not this time.

In reality, the system had some flaws. Most damaging, air could easily enter the system, ruining power and consistency. This was especially true during the bleeding process. The new internals, Morland claimed, remedy those issues.
The key changes to the 2012 Elixir 9 and Elixir 7 models are below:
brakes delivered gobs of stopping power without a pip of protest.
Model Details: So far, Avid is only showing redesigned versions of the Elixir 9, 7 and 1 models, but presumably, the overhauls will also appear on all 2012 brake models, including XX and XO. The Elixir 9 we saw, which replaces the current CR, features the revised Taperbore, a tools free reach adjust, a new machined caliper, and an updated contact adjust with detents. Weight for front brake with a 160mm rotor and hardware is 358 grams; the rear weighs 371. Price for each is $215.
