Discover The Disc Brake Difference

Disc brakes aren’t just for mountain bikes any more. One ride with the smooth, powerful BB5 Road and you’ll know the confidence and control that disc brakes bring to your road riding adventures.


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 Mechanical Disk Break Review

The product came with a new rotor which was a surprise because there was no hint in the description that indicated that it would. Having fitted the caliper (very easy) and used it for a few hundred miles I can safely say that my confidence in the bike stopping has been restored. I fitted this to the front because I had previously had the same product fitted to the rear. The previous brakes had seized but these look more robust.. Tip for fitting: When attaching the caliper to the frame tighten the bolts to finger tight only, pull the break lever and then tighten fully. They should now be correctly aligned

An excellent easy to set up disc brake that performs reliably in all weather. Whilst initial alignment can be tricky servicing and replacement of pads is simple. An excellent low cost product.
