Hi All,

A little niche I suppose but for a top spec brake disc this makes a fantastic upgrade to any centrelock equipped disc bike.

I've upgraded front and rear and the improved braking and elimination of 'squeal' is great. Retails between £40 to £55 elsewhere so for £32 (or £28.80 if your a British cycling member) its a bargain!

Rare to see such a good discount on XT-R spec parts.

Cheers.

As cycling is as popular as its been for years this isn't a little bit niche but a great find and lots of people are pretty savvy about kit....heat...!

So first daft question...I have Shimano Deore brakes which were an upgrade to my 2007 Kona Caldera. Would these fit as my brakes stop me but squeal like a beach! Also would I need 2 as I assume these are per disc??

​You should be able to replace deore with these. And yes you would need two.

Also these are a doddle to fit.

Serious heat for these. Especially with BC discount. Worth noting that Quidco also often have good offers sometimes.

​Sorry, just double checked deore and they aren't the centre lock fitting so you would need a conversion kit to fit these

Sorry for not commenting sooner, been a manic day!
Thanks to geeadamg, summed it up perfectly. They are centerlock fit which if you have it means it's done in 2 minutes
Really happy with mine, so much so I ended up doing the rear too

Very handsome rotor

Definitely niche, I'd have thought the vast majority of bikes come with 6 bolt fastened rotors/hubs now
Newbies
A, look at your current rotors, how are they fastened can you see 6 bolt screws,
B, how big are the rotors usually 160,180,204mm (adaptors can be bought)

Usually the bigger the rotor the better, ice tech shimano and xtr are the superior ones, if you are running deore or slx brakes just get some Rt66 they are superb rotors and can be had for £8-12 on a good day, these xtr may be a little overkill for all but the most serious downhills and cx riders who want the best and lightest,
Proper downhillers tend to use zee / saint

Voted hot as cheap
