Shimano XTR Disc Brake Rotor (53-09-980-24)
Shimano XTR Disc Brake Rotor is a bike brake part product from Shimano Bike Brake Parts. This Shimano XTR Disc Brake Rotor will be delivered directly to your door with fast shipping time. While these may not jump out at you and scream high tech, the XTR Disc Brake Rotors are actually the result of some forward thinking by the folks at Shimano. The big headline is Ice Tech. Technically these XTR Ice Tech Rotors are a composite. Two layers of stainless steel are bonded to an aluminum core. So you get the benefits of both — the durability and powerful braking properties of stainless and the lightness and heat dissipation of aluminum. If you’ve ever boiled your brake fluid and experienced serious fade, enough to scare you, then you’ll appreciate that heat related fade has been reduced by 35%. And cooler running rotors will help your brake pads last longer as well.Aluminum also gets the nod for the spider. This type of construction typically saves a few grams over one piece stainless rotors, but the biggest advantage is that the aluminum spider, again, dissipates more heat and adds rigidity, so your rotors will warp less and be less susceptible to getting dinged out of shape.The XTR Disc Brake Rotors SM-RT98 are available in three sizes — 160, 180, and 203mm. Even with the Ice Tech sandwich construction, they’re the same thickness as Shimano’s other rotors at 1.9mm, and they’re centerlock compatible only.

About Shimano XTR Trail Brake Systems:
Riding comfortably at speed requires an unconscious, intuitive confidence in your machine. It requires knowing that whatever conditions you come across your brakes will be ready and able to deliver reliable control in any situation. Say hello to XTR Trail brakes, and say goodbye to compromise. The integration of Servo-Wave brake-boosting technology into an XTR-level brake generates gobs of lightweight stopping power (125 percent of the previous XTR benchmark, to be exact) that can be precisely rolled on and off with single-finger effort–leaving a better grip on the bar for charging through the gnar. With industry-first, full ceramic caliper pistons, radiator-fin-backed brake pads to shed performance-sapping heat, and innovative IceTech aluminum-core rotors to even further keep heat buildup at bay, these all-new brakes maintain a cool, quiet performance under fire. As the most powerful and most controllable XTR-level brake of all time, XTR Trail absolutely assassinates wide-open descents with uncanny consistency, delivering more confidence than ever before.
