Shimano XT SM-RT86 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 RT86 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 for maximum cooling
  • 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 T25 Torx mounting bolts, adaptors not included.
  • Sold Singly
  • Compatible with most disc brakes, but strongly recommended for use with Shimano brakes and brake pads
  • Weight:
  • 160mm: 113g
  • 180mm: 130g
  • 203mm: 166g
  • Mounting Hardware: 15g

I ordered this as part of a 1x11 drive train upgrade I did on my Giant Anthem. I had previously ordered the new XT M8000 brakes for the upgrade, but planned not to replace the rotors as it seemed like a waste considering the rotor were not that old, but after getting the new brakes on the bike I thought maybe I should. After getting them installed, I was glad I did. The new setup with the M8000 brakes and these rotors stops on a dime. Issues I previously had with heat build up on long descents with my old SLX brakes are now no existent. Worth every penny.

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 SM-RT86 6 Bolt Ice-Tech Rotor:

                  I wore out my original Shimano RT86 rotor and this replacement brought the braking back to what it was. My only complaint is that the installation instructions required you to "bend the edges of the tightening plate over the heads of the bolts" after the bolts were torqued down. However, the tightening plates supplied are a different design that neither have a prominent edge to bend nor appear to need bending.

                    • 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!
