This is the Avid BB7 Road SL Mechanical Disc Brake. This race-ready mechanical disc brake takes the proven power and performance of BB7 and dials it up a few notches with its sleek “Falcon Grey” anodizing and weight-saving hardware. The lightweight HS1 rotors and all-titanium hardware saves 25 grams per wheel. So you’ll be just as confident on the climbs as you are on the descents.
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.
