Our Bleed Kit for Avid Brakes includes 100ml of high performance DOT 5.1 brake fluid, enough to bleed your brakes 3-4 times! Our brake fluid bottles are 100% sealed and air tight, so you know what you're getting is fresh!

Does the job fine

Managed to flush dirty fluid and bleed my brakes with relative ease. Similar to the more expensive kit, the process is the same and you follow their Youtube video if you prefer. Have now used twice and everything still works well. Supplied with enough fluid for 3-4 uses.

Bleed kit

The kit was good and had all the bits that was needed. It was easy to follow the instructions and did a good job even with a first timer at the wheel. Excellent, thanks.

Easy

Watched the video several times before I attempted it and read a few other bits. Sram Kit was perfect, done and dusted within 10 mins and that included draining the original oil as it was a bit murky.

Brakes used to boil on my run home, now they don't!

Comes with a nice clear instruction sheet, all the necessaries, and a pair of thin nitrile gloves. The dry, dot5.1 seemed to do the job nicely. Of course, if I used the brakes less, I wouldn't have had to bother, but they're rather useful on nearly 2 km of over 25 % descent. And I'm a bit chicken on the steep stuff, too...

Avid Bleed Kit & DOT 5.1 Fluid

I bought this kit to help unstick my rear brakes on my MBT as the caliper was stuck full on, and I'd recently had it serviced. I decided, based on the cost, I would try flush the system myself to see if that fixed the issue. I've never done this before, so it was a new experience but I figured it was time to learn, and also to save some money! The kit arrived very quickly, and the instructions were excellent and easy to follow. I repeated the flush out 2 times in total and still had fluid left to do the front brakes as well. Currently there's still fluid left for another 3 flushes. As this was so easy, I've now started to do more and more on my bike myself rather than pay for an expensive service as I used to.

QUESTIONS (3)

Will this kit bleed SRAM Guide brakes?

This kit is compatible with all SRAM brakes except for the newest (2017-on) SRAM models with their redesigned S4 brake calliper. For this SRAM require that you use their Bleeding Edge tool. However, you will still need a bleed kit and ours can be used with the SRAM Bleeding Edge tool, click here to find out how.

Does this kit bleed Formula brakes too?

Yes. Our bleed adaptors are manufactured to be compatible with all Formula brakes too.

Is 100ml of brake fluid enough to bleed both front and back brakes?

Yes. 100ml will allow you to bleed both brakes 3-4 times.
