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 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.

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

      I bought these rotors to go with my Shimano xt brakes I purchashed. Coming from Avid Juicy, the difference in power is night and day. I was previously running Avid Cleansweep G2 rotors and wanted something that would remain cool under long descents. These rotors have really helped. I can't speak on durability because i've had them only about a month, but im sure they'll be fine

            Eliminated 95% of front brake squeal on Avid BB7. Don't waste your time and money trying different brake pads. This rotor solved the constant front brake squeal that has plagued my bike since new, over 3 years now.
