These are good looking rotors! I love how strong they are. I upgraded to a shimano brake system after my Level TLs from the other guys failed me a hot day. These rotors are nice and stiff and Ive never had a problem with them.
You have the low end through the high end. These rotors hit the upper middle good enough for experienced riders without totally breaking the bank. I am an expert rider on a budget and I went with these. 203 front and 180 rear on single piston xts on my AM bike.
Replaced my original rotors on my Specialized Sirrus Carbon Comp. Easy to follow installation though required some adjustment to the brake pads. Seem to grip better and noisefree.
These do not overheat, do not make noise, stay true, and wear well. You can't buy a better rotor (or a better pair of brakes, for that matter). These are worth the extra money.
It's tough to give a qualified and fair review this as I've not ridden other discs but these. They feel solid and brake well in the time I've ridden them. The reason why I purchased them is because of all the other reviews claiming how great a job these discs do.
Use this on my Pivot 429 carbon bike with different tires depending on time of year and terrain I am riding. Wear and tear is great would not use anything else. Have different wheels set up and have them on both bikes.
Switching over to the Ice Tech rotors made such a difference in my braking on the trail. I do a lot of DH shuttle runs and nothing puts brakes to the test like sustained dh tech. My previous Avids wouldn't dissipate heat that well giving me brake fade accompanied by loud squeals. With the ice techs I've yet to get brake fade, giving me strong stopping power thru ought the day with no noise! Fantastic upgrade!!
