Upgrading your brakes? Be sure to consider these Shimano XT SM-RT86 Ice-Tech rotors.
Ice-Tech is Shimano's approach to high-performance braking by reducing operating temperatures. Ice-Tech rotors are a two-piece floating design for increased stiffness and they feature a 3-layer construction. There's an aluminium core sandwiched between two stainless steel outer layers. Aluminium dissipates heat quickly which works perfectly for braking. When combined with Shimano brakes and Ice-Tech pads, riders will notice consistent performance, reduced brake fade and less brake noise.
If you are replacing rotors or looking to upgrade, these should be a strong contender.
Two-piece floating rotor.
Fits standard 6-bolt hubs.
Include 6 T25 Torx bolts.
Does not include adaptors.
Works with most brakes. Works BEST with Shimano brakes using Ice-Tech pads.
Please note: If you are increasing rotor size, please check with your frame and fork manufacturer. Certain models have max recommended rotor sizes and going beyond these sizes can cause severe damage. Also, if you increase rotor size you will need to use different adaptors.
