Shimano XT RT-86 6 Bolt Ice-Tech Rotor

With riding styles growing more aggressive and varied, a better brake rotor was needed. Shimano responded to the needs of riders to deliver best-in-class braking power, better system cooling and the best brake feel. Enter the Ice-Tech Rotor. The XT rotor is infused with proven Ice-Tech braking technology, trickled down from the top-end XTR group. Ice-Tech is a technology that blends the durabiity of a stopping power of a steel rotor with the heat dissipation properties of aluminum. By sandwiching an Aluminum cooling core between two steel braking surfaces, the rotor dissipates heat faster, while the steel outer portion provides solid stopping power and a durable braking surface. The two-piece "floating" rotor arrangement also saves weight and increases system stiffness, giving you the intense braking power you need, with the reliability and survivability that Shimano is best known for. Hit every line with confidence and speed with XT Rotors!

  • For standard 6-Bolt Disc Brake Hubs.
  • Ice-Tech Technology
  • Two-piece floating rotor
  • Available in 160mm, 180mm and 203mm diameters. Choose the size that matches your existing rotors, or size up for more stopping power (appropriate brake adaptor will be required).
  • Includes Torx mounting bolts, adaptors not included.
  • Sold Singly
  • Compatible with most disc brakes, but strongly recommended for use with Shimano brakes and brake pads

Installed these XT rotors and a new set of XT level brakes on my Nomad in place of Avid elixirs and clean sweep G3 rotors. Power is exceptional with the Shimano's and these rotors help keep it quiet consistent and smooth. The hardest i've pushed them was a 7 mile DH run with no fade or squeal, pushing deep into the corners with out a second thought that performance would be above par. I'm not anti Avid, (even if mine did howl like a dog under a full moon) I just find the Shimano's to be so far ahead of the curve it makes others in this price point seem irrelevant.

Ive got the non ice XT, but has the same center hole, where the axle goes thru. If you use 20mm front axle. Be careful when washing your bike, cuz water can get trapped between the center hole and axle seal.Since the rotor center hole is smaller then the spacing for the 20mm axle. I have 2012 crossmax st wheels with horrible axle seal design. The disc side bearing seized cuz of no water run off and poorly designed seals. Not a good combo wheel and rotor if you wash your bike often.Im going back to solid rotors with the new SLX, it has cut outs between the mounting bolt holes for water run off. But i do love the design of the xt 2 piece rotors.Looks sic and worked flawlessly. Oh and with the crossmax wheels? A whole other story. Actually in the mavic crossmax review in this website.

          I'm leaning toward the belief that these are the best brake rotors you can get, period! worked perfectly in the first two seconds with no breaking in needed at all. And NO noise!!

            Does not work with centerlock adapter

            About Me Avid Cyclist

            Comments about Shimano XT RT-86 6 Bolt Ice-Tech Rotor:

            Just wanted everyone to know that the aluminum mounting spider is too thick in an irregular pattern that does not allow you to mount them to a centerlock adapter (if for some reason you would not remember to order centerlock for the back hub that you have that had an adapter that I never noticed). Strangely the centerlock adapter says it is not compatible with these, but these do not say they are incompatible with it.

              I paired these rotors with a set of M9000 XTR trail brakes. These rotors run true, silent and without pulsing. The aluminum center spokes add a tough look to my bike.

                      • Q:

                        I have Avid BB7's on my Specialized Secteur road bike; ordered these rotors but they seem to be way too thick, even with both pads backed all the way off. Also the little tab on the inside (right) pad rubs the bolts on the inside of the black centre piece of the rotor where it connects to the outer silver piece. Not a little, but a lot.

                      • Q:

                        Some people call this(?) rotor a Shimano "Deore" XT 6-Bolt Ice-Tech Rotor, a Shimano "Saint" XT Ice-Tech rotor, and Jenson USA doesn't specify either "Deore" or "Saint".

                        Are all these rotors the same? People just referring to them by different names, ie "Deore", "Saint", or no name?

                        Does the rotor sold on Jenson USA have a manufacturer part number?

                        Thanks!
