At first glance, ice tech rotors seem like a good idea. No experience of ice tech but have rt79 on one bike (centrelock version of the rt76) which work very well and seem to resisit warping.also have rt75s which are the same weight and work equally well.
I upgraded my 2020 levo with xt 4 piston brakes with 203mm icetech 6 bolt rotors.
Shimano ice tech rotors review. But for longer, steeper decents, these ice tech rotors have a more consistent feel that doesn't fade. See inside for the results from shimano. Ohm13, vin829, zimmerframe and 1.
It replaced a 180 regular disc. The center lock xt m8000 discs feature the brand's ice tech construction which sees an aluminum core sandwiched between a steel exterior. When they failed again spesh offered me the 8020's and i bit their hand off.
Not sure the ice tech made any difference though. Ice technologies and freeza provide consistent braking performance with longer pad life, less brake fade and noise. Shimano's ice tech rotors are some of the fastest stopping and most reliable discs you can buy.
This in turn reduces fading, which ensures consistent high performance even on long downhill stretches, it also results in a longer pad life and substantially quieter braking. Shimano introduced a revolutionary cooling technology for disc brakes in 2010 named ice technologies. Yes, the rear magnetic assembly works on icetech rotors.
This design cuts a small amount of weight and allows the rotor to manage heat better than a full steel rotor. Since in any brake system there is a direct relation in. So if you don't have that level of caliper, why not just buy the better caliper and stick with 160mm?
For 15mm front axles, a specific shimano lock ring is required, as well as an external bottom bracket wrench. Aluminium conducts heat much more effectively than steel, so sandwiching it into a rotor core seems to make sense. There is a massive range of choice in the brake spares category from chain reaction cycles so it’s.
Shimano ice tech rotors review it replaced a 180 regular disc. So if you don't have that level of caliper, why not just buy the better caliper and stick with 160mm? Take the existing magnet off the rear sram brake rotor and place it on the icetech rotor.
But for longer, steeper decents, these ice tech rotors have a more consistent feel that doesn't fade. However, looking at the rotors more carefully, there doesn't seem to be anywhere for this heat to go. I had a 160 rear ice tech and i’m 6’2″ and not that light on bike and ride in the lakes.
Ice tech rotors, blingy full stop. Look for the most suitable colour/design.make sure the shimano dura ace ice tech freeza centre lock rotor has the relevant approved safety markings on it for your local area, ce marking is a key item for products sold in the uk and europe.not sure the ice tech made any difference. There's an aluminium core sandwiched between two stainless steel outer layers.
