Shimano SM-RT86 XT Ice-Tec 6-Bolt Disc Brake Rotor 160mm
The clad steel, alloy and steel rotor construction allows heat generated from braking to radiate quickly through the aluminium core achieving surface temperature drops of around 50˚C.
When used with Ice-Tec pads, surface temperatures can drop from around 400 to 300˚C, this provides great improvements in performance all round. Engineered to withstand massive heat build-up and the heavy braking associated with long alpine descents, the Ice-Tec 6-bolt disc rotor is the perfect choice for use as part of the Shimano braking system.
Strength and rigidity have been dramatically improved thanks to the large forged alloy spider. The six-bolt mounting system ensures a solid joint with the hub for a safe, secure and efficient rolling season after season.
- SM-RT86 Ice-Tec rotors give excellent performance made from a stainless steel / alloy 3-layer sandwich construction that manages heat while riding
- Ice-Tec rotors achieve long pad life, less noise and less fade due to improved heat dispersion
- 6-bolt mounting system
- Rotor contact surface has been developed for excellent pad clearing and cooling which increases pad performance and life
- Large forged alloy spider supports rotor surface, increasing rigidity and reducing weigh
