    They ain't cheap

    Overall Review:

    I can't say for sure these are better than a regular non ice tech rotor but I can for sure say that I have never experienced any brake fade using Shimano XT brakes (both M8000 and M785) down full-on DH trails, enduro races, bike park laps, or monster 1500 meter shuttle descents.

    Overall, a quality rotor, that in my experience has led to excellent stopping power on the longest and steepest of trails.I just wish they were cheaper.
