Hi!

What is the special of Avid Ti series v-brakes and levers? What is the material of brake and lever body? Searcing on google but not found original catalog.

Thanks: Pali

A couple of the bolts are ti.
Big deal! :roll:
Good brakes though, but no reason to shell out substantially more for them.

Oh, but they have Ti written on them! 8)

Very nice levers, I replaced my SD5's with them. There is no difference other than the colour. :D

The Mag ones definitely are - they use a magnesium alloy for the V-arms. My fear is how long they last in British winter salt... :shock:
