    Elixer 9 Trail pads?

    Looking for new pads for my Avid Elixer 9 Trail brakes.

    The pads in there now look EXACTLY like the XO Trail pads. In fact, I stuck some XO Trail pads in there and they fit.

    They don't look like the Elixer pads.

    Can someone confirm for me that I want to buy XO Trail pads for Elixer 9 Trail brakes?

    You will want to buy brake pads that work with the Trail brake lineup. The Elixir brake lineup uses a different pad and will not work with the Trail brakes.

    Pads for the Elixir 9 Trail are the same as what's used in the Elixir 7 Trail and the XO Trail.

    They don't look like the Elixer pads.
    'Trail' models have 4 pistons.
    Standard Elixir brakes only have 2 pistons.
    4 pistons = bigger pads
