Shimano XT RT81 Icetech Centerlock Rotor

Shimano XT RT81 Ice-Tech Centerlock Rotor

Shimano’s RT81 rotors embody Shimano's signature Ice-Tech Technology. Ice-Tech produces 25% more braking power through achieving a high system stiffness and incredible cooling power. The 3 layer rotor features an aluminum core between stainless steel outer plates. This configuation quickly and efficiently dissipates heat from the exterior, drawing it away to cool into the atmosphere using the aluminum carriers and cutout winged design. With better heat dissipation, there is more consistent braking power.

  • Centerlock Rotors mount on Centerlock hubs only (SM-RT96 lockring for QR and 12mm hubs included, HB20 lockring is required for 15mm and 20mm thru-axle hubs, sold separately). Will not fit on standard 6-bolt hubs.
  • Floating arrangement delivers excellent stiffness properties, low weight, great brake feel and incredible heat dissipation
  • Ice-Tech heat-shedding technology ensures consistent, predictable braking.
  •  Mud- Shedding Design is ready for the roughest conditions

Great Expensive Rotors
Been using the Shimano RT64 SLX rotors with SLX brakes for this past summer and braking was fine. The Ice-Techs are true out of the box, great stopping power and better modulation. Highly recommend them if money is not an issue. They work with allmodern Shimano brakes, M615 Deore, M675 SLX, M785 XT, XTR, ZEE.People also installed them with Avid and Hayes brakes.

Stopping Power
Good rotors, good price. 180mm rotors just fit on my Turner bike and provide excellent stopping power for this Clydesdale rider! :)

Shimano brakes = pure bliss
Theres not much to say about shimano brakes except they rule. To get the benefits of this rotor you need shimano brakes with ice tech pads. When paired these discs are powerful,fade free, and quiet as a mouse in all conditions in any scenario. Gave 4 star cuz i havent tried the RT99 rotors.

Great discs!
Easy install, stops on a dime. Shimano got it right using the same tool to mount a cassette for mounting the disc.

Best value without compromising performance.
I liked these rotors so much I'm putting them on my second bike. Combined wit XT brakes these rotors have tons of power without sacrificing control. And they are also super quiet. Great buy from Jenson as well at just 24.95 each. Awesome deal!

Will these rotors work with a 15mm frnt. axle and 12x142 rear axle?
Sean on Apr 16, 2016
Do these come with the Lock Ring for a 15mm hub?
t on Aug 10, 2016
BEST ANSWER: A lockring is included, but it will not fit a 15mm hub. You will need to purchase the HB20 lockring.

BEST ANSWER: Yes this rotor fits Shimano centerlock hubs. The lockring that comes with this rotor will fit the rear hub. The 15mm front hub will need the locking that uses the external bottom bracket tool to install; the Shimano HB-20 one. The type of lockring that uses the cassette tool to install will not fit over the axle.
does this rotor come with the lockring?
A shopper on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, it includes an SM-RT96 Lockring. This is the smaller lockring that installs on QR or 12mm axle rear hubs with the cassette lockring tool (like the Park FR-5).

If you are using thru-axle hubs 15mm and up, you will require the SM-HB20 lockring (attached) that has clearance for 15 or 20mm thru-axles, that installs using the external BB tool (like the Park BBT-9).

Do the rotors come with a lock ring?
Dan on Jun 20, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yeah, they should work with that set up. They are individually sold.
is this individual or for as a set?
MarkO on Apr 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Just one rotor.
