The Shimano XTR RT-MT900-L Disc Brake Rotor is a high-performance disc brake rotor designed for use with Shimano XTR and XT hydraulic disc brake systems. This rotor features a lightweight and durable construction, with an aluminum core and stainless steel braking surface that provides excellent heat dissipation and reliable braking performance.
The XTR RT-MT900-L rotor also features Shimano's proprietary Ice Technologies Freeza technology, which uses a layered construction and heat-dissipating fins to minimize heat buildup and prevent brake fade, even during long descents.
The rotor is available in a range of sizes to fit different bike frames and disc brake systems, making it a versatile choice for many different types of riders.
The available sizes are:
140mm: This size is typically used for road bikes or lightweight mountain bikes.
160mm: This size is a popular choice for cross-country mountain bikes and provides a good balance of weight and stopping power.
180mm: This size provides increased stopping power and is often used for all-mountain or enduro riding.
203mm: This size provides maximum stopping power and is typically used for downhill riding or heavily loaded touring bikes.
It's important to note that the choice of brake rotor can have a significant impact on the performance of your braking system. Before selecting a rotor, it's a good idea to consult the manufacturer's recommendations and consider your individual riding style and preferences. Additionally, proper installation and maintenance of the rotor is crucial for ensuring safe and effective braking performance.
