Soggy grip on brakes

I ride a Canyon Strive with Avid Elexir 5 brakes.
The lever feels really soggy and I almost "bottom out" at the handlebar beafore I get any reaction from the brakes.
I have tried to change pads - no difference.

Any suggestion what to do next?
Bleed the breaks?

Thank´s and sorry for my poetic way to describe my problem. Hope you got the question right - english is only a school langue to me. Expressed in a different way: brakes works but you have to pull the lever a really long distance beafore it reacts . I like the oppostite: aggresive and fast response (more poetry...sorry..)
