Product Description

Entry-Level, Schmentry-Level - Set it and forget it


Smooth, powerful braking performance that’s simple to set up and easy to adjust. Bad weather or rough roads? Not even a factor with BB7’s reliable mechanical performance.


The BB5 offers our Tri-Align Caliper Positioning System, tool-free pad replacement, a melt-forged body and an inboard pad adjustment knob. One try and you’ll wonder if the BB5s are really entry-level brakes.


Tri-Align™ Caliper Positioning System™

Another original Avid technology making your life better - there’s never been an easier brake to install and adjust. With Avid’s Tri-Align™Caliper Positioning System™, aligning the caliper to the rotor literally takes seconds. Just loosen the CPS™ bolts a little, and then squeeze the brake lever while re-tightening the bolts. Perfect caliper alignment - just like that.

Avid bb5 Disc Brakes

Very reliable robust and easy to use. I have used Avid mechanical discs on a previous bike. I am buying these again for a new bike in favour of hydraulic discs as they are more reliable and easier to maintain.

I have recently brought the Avid BB5 disc brake for my mountain bike to replace the original disc brakes that came with the bike. I must say I was extremely surprised with the new brakes performance compered to my old ones.
