Shimano Ultegra RT800S 160mm Centerlock IceTech Disc Brake Rotor
The Shimano Ultegra RT800 Centerlock IceTech Disc Brake Rotor is a high-performance bicycle brake rotor designed for use with Shimano Ultegra hydraulic disc brake systems. It features an innovative IceTech construction that combines an aluminum core with a stainless steel braking surface to improve heat dissipation and reduce brake fade. This results in a rotor that is more resistant to brake fade, which can occur when excessive heat builds up and reduces the effectiveness of the brake system.
Another benefit of the Shimano Ultegra RT800 Centerlock IceTech Disc Brake Rotor is its low profile design. This helps to reduce weight and improve aerodynamics, which can be especially important for road cyclists and triathletes who are looking to shave seconds off their times.
The Centerlock mounting system is another notable feature of this rotor. It allows for quick and easy installation using a cassette lockring tool, which is a common tool found in many cyclists' tool kits. This system also ensures that the rotor is securely fastened to the hub, reducing the risk of it coming loose during use.
The rotor has a diameter of 160mm and a thickness of 1.8mm, making it lightweight and durable. The Centerlock mounting system allows for quick and easy installation, and the rotor's low profile design helps to minimize weight and improve aerodynamics.
