    Avid Elixir R v's Formula Oro K18

    Looking to change the brakes on my Giant Reign X. I'm currently running 07 XT/Saints and fancy a change to something lighter and more powerful, and doesn't fade on me.
    Both of these brakes appeal to me as they're light and powerful and within my price range.

    Anyone out there any experience of either of these brakes? Seems as the avids are still relatively new there's not too much user experience/info on them at the minute.

    They'll be used for everything from trail riding to DH.

    Cheers

    Andy

    ive rode the elixers, and the modulation is absolutly incredible! you cant even tell when the pad starts touching,no on/off, just perfect modulation. and theyre lighter than the juicy line,and more powerful. i want a set now too.
