There’s power in simplicity. For years now, ball bearing disc brakes have been a favourite among riders who want control, durability, dependability and piece-of-cake adjusting.

BB’s adjustment knobs make quick work out of setting the perfect distance between the pads and rotor, as well as adjusting for pad wear. This is something you just can’t do with hydraulic brakes. And when you run ball bearing disc brakes, you can match them with our Speed Dial levers for sweet, adjustable modulation.

The BB5 offers Avid's Tri-Align Calliper 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.
