Rated 5 out of 5 by Cheap power boost Since getting some good rubber i have wanting more stopping power. 160's don't match the grip of the tyres. I was after 180's but these were on offer and i thought what the heck. Spent 30 min's bedding in with my old ceramic pads and hey presto loads more stopping power. I cant fault them. 13 February 2010
Rated 4 out of 5 by Not bad rotors. Together with my mechanics BB7 very much please, brake in any weather, hoot only when it is damp. Look very pleasantly. From minuses I will note only weight - 150 gr. with lockring (for 160 mm) - nevertheless it is a lot of. 26 August 2008
Rated 4 out of 5 by Wow! they work a treat. Had my crappy so1es setup with these 160mm rotors and there was an improvement. A bigger one was done after replacing the so1es with XT's. Works very well together, no fade (as if you would from a bike) and good stopping in the wet. Only issues was some brake noise from the front (not squeal). I ride XC and single track 18 July 2008

Rated 5 out of 5 by Great these rotors are great, they look so good, i have the 180mm version. Putting them on takes seconds providing you have the tools and after a quick ride a can already see an improve in power using my lx deore brakes. As far i remember these are pretty light aswell, i only held them while i took of the small safety sticker thing. also the postage was so quick, dispatched last night at 6 and arrived this morning and i live in the highlands and was free, bargain. buy them they look good. 26 September 2007
