Adam T.wrote a review of Avid Elixir 5 Disc Brake on March 24, 2012
Squishy right out the box on my Santa Cruz AM bike and fade like a cheap t-shirt. I could never put any trust in them after numerous bleeds by different shops. The fix: Buy Saints - once you get over the cost you won't look back. Besides, the hospital bills will be far more expensive when the el-cheapo brakes don't hold up.
