If your preferences are low weight over complexity, as well as maximal adjustments in your braking system, the Avid X0 Disc Brake is aimed at you. This version of the X0 builds on the existing two-piston, two-piece caliper from previous iterations -- with an updated lever assembly. The X0 brake continues to utilize Avid's Taperbore technology to offer progressive modulation. But, in the spirit of weight reduction, it forgoes the pad contact adjustment. You can still adjust reach to place the carbon lever in the most ergonomic position. Unlike the Trail lever, though, this model rotates around a hollow pivot and bushing instead of a bearing and solid pivot assembly. These two features alone drop the system's weight to just over 300 grams, without sacrificing performance. At the caliper end of things, Avid continues to employ its proven two-piston units. They're constructed from forged aluminum for stiffness and cooling efficiency, and it uses a banjo fitting for the braided polyester hose. This allows clean routing on the majority of frame designs with standard post mounts. The X0 brakes are fully compatible with Matchmaker -- for space-saving mounting with compatible remotes and shifters. The Avid X0 Disc Brake - No Rotor comes with either a Black/black or Black/red finish. Front and rear brakes are sold separately. Please note, as defined in the title, the rotor is not included and will need to be purchased separately.
