Shimano XT SM-RT86 Ice-Tech 6 Bolt Disc Brake Rotor
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.
Who's this item for: Any rider chasing a great value for money, reliable solid rotor.
Mounting standard: Standard 6-Bolt
Materials: Stainless steel and aluminum.
Brake pad compatibility: You can use either metal (sintered) or resin (organic) brake pads on these rotors. Works best with Shimano brakes using Ice-Tech pads.

The only rotor I use on Shimano brakes!
Plenty of bite, doesn't make a noise and doesn't glaze up with a quick bed in process.

Good. Had a problem with Australia Post losing the items. Mountain Bikes Direct stepped up replaced the items with a better item. Pretty happy with the service but disappointed with Australia Post.
