Avid has announced a ‘weight weenie’ satisfying new version of its XX World Cup disc brake.

Offering exactly the same modulation and stopping power as the standard model, the newly created brake will run minus the firm’s adjustable pad contact feature, shaving 12 grams per wheel. This results in a total system weight of just 276 grams for a front post mount, 160mm rotor set up. The design still utilises a forged magnesium construction for the lever body and calliper.

It is anticipated that the lighter model will not hit retail until the end of the year, though SRAM sponsored athletes are expected to be using the brakes as soon as September.

Fisher Outdoors carries the range of SRAM brands in the UK, including Avid.
