Juicy Levers with Elixir Calipers?

Just wondering if I can run the combo? I currently am running some 2006 Juicy 7s and was thinking that changing to the Elixir's larger caliper would be a good upgrade.

Thanks in advance.

Its possible. I dont know how much of an improvement it would be over just a juicy caliber. Top race teams mix and match. Ultimate levers with code calibers and such. But when they really need a lot of breaking power they use code levers with code calibers.

I just need to refresh mine with new fluid/oil, shorten the lines and thought, "for around a hundred bucks, I could also upgrade the calipers".
Bit cheaper than buying a complete set.

I run juicy carbon levers with elixir cr calipers. Best brake combo that I have ever used.

I say it would be worth it just for the simpler pad installation.

I know you had issues with the Elixir levers, but how are the Juicy levers for modulation with the Elixir calipers comparatively? (to Elixir levers and with Juicy calipers)

Seems to be what Sam Hill and Peaty are runnin' a lot of the time so there must be something right.
