The new series is widely held as the best XC brakes by a big margin. I tend to agree, and from a professional POV I really dislike the entire Elixir series.

This will provide a pressure-release avenue for the fluid as you push the pistons back. Once the pads are fitted and the wheel is back in, clamp the hose on the syringe & pump the brake lever a few times to reset the pad clearance. You may need to top the fluid back up slightly.

I've still got the juicy 7's. I changed because sbad had 7's on one bike then elixir cr's on another and felt the elixirs were better and 12
months ago , at a scott demo day in forrest , the spark 20 I rode had cr's on it and they were a lot better than the juicy 7's.
Anyway it looks like a trip to trailmix and I may as well do a ride
