    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.

      Upgraded my entire braking system from Avid to the XT. All the reviews are correct and could not be happier with making the switch! Easy to install, so responsive, and most of all it doesn't scream like a dying cat as I descend.

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

          I bought this to complete my build on a yeti SB-66. This rotor is huge, and has plenty of stopping power. I have XT brakes, and this worked great with them. I haven't experienced any fade at all, even during heavy, repeated braking. Shimano engineered the ice-tech rotors with an aluminum core which will dissipate heat better.

          Been using the Avid G2 Cleansweep rotors with XT M785 brakes for this past summer and the rear brake was never quiet. Stopping power was there but it was a bit of an on/off with metallic pads. Finally got to replace the rotors with the Ice-Techs and my problems are gone. True out of the box, great stopping power and better modulation.

              Doesn't get much better than Shimano's Ice Tech stuff. Technology meets attractive and lightweight design. Would work great in any brake system where applicable. I bought the 203 version for my Yeti SB66. Powerful stopping and no fade even on long descents.

                    when i purchased the ice tech rotors at first they werent paired with any brake sporting the new cooling fins BUT the super noisy elixers they were paired with changed the brake completely, not enough that i didnt end up replacing them with XTRs but they cut down the noise dramatically, increased stopping power and cooling. great rotors and even better when paired with a great set of brakes.

                      I use these rotors on all my normal builds and pair them with shimano servo wave brake setups.

                      These rotors stand up to big rock gardens well and I have even landed on my front 180mm rotor messing up on a skinny. Rotor vs. 2x4 the rotor won!

                      Easy to true with minimal flex back.
