Straitline Elixir Brake Levers

If you’ve familiar with Straitline, you should know they make awesome replacement ergonomic brake levers. If you’re after a replacement brake lever for your Avid Elixir brakes, Straitline now makes them. Details inside.

The replacement brake levers fit up to Avid Elixir brakes pretty easily but if you’ve got carbon lever blades, you may need some additional parts.

Currently, Elixir Levers are available in 3 aftermarket models, the Elixir 5, Elixir R & Elixir CR. The Elixir 5 comes only with an aluminum blade, the Elixir R & Elixir CR are both available with the option of an aluminum lever blade or carbon fiber lever blade.

Straitline’s upgrade levers are a direct replacement for the Elixir R & Elixir CR levers with aluminum blades only, however cross compatibility with the other listed models can be achieved by purchasing certain parts from Avid through your local dealer. You can double check this with a compatibility chart that Straitline has made to see if you need any additional parts to run these levers.

Fitting these levers to our Elixir brakes was pretty easy. Avid has some schematics on their site if you’re not the most mechanically inclined to help replace your levers. The levers are perfect for one finger braking.

The levers have a very nice comfortable feel to them. They are ergonomically designed to help reduce forearm fatigue as well as being quite durable in our experience.  CNC machined in house at Straitline’s Canada facility, these levers are works of beauty.

The levers come in a wide variety of color options as well (black, blue, bronze, grey, orange, pink, red, and white).

MSRP is $94 USD

Straitline is distributed in the USA through most all of the major distributors (QBP/ BTI), so you can get them ordered from just about any  good shop.
