The clad steel / alloy / steel rotor construction allows heat generated from braking to radiate quickly through the aluminum core achieving surface temperature drops of around 50 deg C. When used with Ice-Tec pads surface temperatures can drop from around 400 to 300 deg C, this provides great improvements in performance all round.
Ice-Tec rotors achieve long pad life, less noise and less fade due to improved heat management
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 weight

You know, you probably need pads too. Keep your Shimano rotors performing like new with genuine Shimano Ice Tech disc brake pads here.
Showing Questions 1-3 of 3
Q: Are the rotors sold as a pair or individually?
A: These rotors are sold individually. You can choose what size you would like from the drop down menu.
Q: Will these work with non-Shimano calipers? Is the rotor width the same as Avid rotors?
A: Shimano rotors are narrower than most other brands. This may cause issues when using them with another brands calipers.
Q: Will these rotors work with Shimano Deore disc brakes? Do I need different brake pads than what came with the calipers?
A: Yes, these rotors are compatible with Deore brakes. It’s a good idea to use new pads when you are replacing the rotors.
Phenomenal braking when paired with XT brakes - Aug 01, 2014
5 out of 5 stars
Clifton Park, NY
I have a 180 rotor in the front and and a 160 rotor in the rear. While I have lower end Shimano brakes on my HT and Tektros on my 26", neither compare to the phenomenal braking these rotors give me paired with XT brakes on my new trail bike.
I order a 203 and 180 to go with the Shimano XT M785, good setup I must say. great heat dissipation and they do not squeak. I would of given it 5 stars but the 180 rotor was not true straight out of the box. But overall awesome rotors!
I added these (180/Front, 160/Rear) as a replacement for my Avid Elixir CR brakes. What an improvement !! No squeals or groans !! This was part of an overall upgrade with the 785 XT brakes One thing to note - the installation instructions from Shimano are outdated. These rotors no longer ship with the lock ring as the instructions indicate. Instead, use the tabs and bolts that are included and bend the tabs up when complete. Recommended !!
