    So, rotors, what can you say about rotors. Well the Icetechs look cool. Before having ridden a set I would have thought all you could comment on are looks but after just one day of Downhill riding in Whistler, before my new Shimano Zee pads had even had a chance to fully break in, I could already tell this combo stays cooler and creates less brake fade. Bottom line, if you like to go fast and you are spending the money on high performance brakes then buck up and grab a set of these rotors as well. I'm glad I did.

    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 Icetech Rotor:

        I changed the Avid brakes on my MTB to XTs but had to wait to change the rotors. I didn't think it would be that much of a difference, boy was I wrong. These rotors really improve stopping power and feel. The only downside is, in the 180mm and larger range some can arrive not perferctly straight (reason for 4 stars), maybe due to the use of aluminum?? I had to slightly straighten mine but it works great now. (careful when bending, a little goes a long way with these rotors!)

          I picked these up with the Saint M820 brakes. They go together beautifully. I haven't run into any of howling and they are quieter than my previous Avid brakes.

                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.

                    do you ever bleed your brakes and hop on your steed to find they are still not quite like new? could be your busted up rotor discs. you can align them but its not likely to bring them back to that crisp stopping power
