Disc Brake Rotor Buying Guide


Hey there, fellow riders! Ready to take your bike to the next level? We've got just the upgrade that'll make your brakes sing and your rides even more epic. Buckle up as we dive into the exciting world of disc brake rotors. We offer a range of options, each with its own unique benefits. So, let's explore and find the perfect match for your biking style!

When Should You Swap Rotors? It's Time for a Change,

Now, we all know that disc brake rotors have impressive durability, but nothing lasts forever. Over time, with regular use, these bad boys will wear down. Different manufacturers have varying minimum wear thicknesses, usually around 1.5mm, so it's essential to check. Once your rotor reaches this point, it's time to bid adieu and welcome the shiny new ones. But wait, there's more! If your rotor has taken a beating from a crash, or if it's as bent as a pretzel, it's definitely time to say goodbye. And hey, if you're itching for an upgrade or a customized look, swapping your rotors is the way to go!


Size Matters: Bigger Rotor, Bigger Fun!

Ready for some hot stuff? Upscaling your disc brake rotor size is like adding spice to your ride. It's not just about looks; it's about performance! Larger rotors mean better heat management, allowing for efficient dissipation. The cooler your brakes stay, the better they perform. Plus, a bigger rotor diameter gives you that extra brake leverage, pumping up your brake power. If you're a larger rider, rocking an E-bike, or shredding intense technical descents, consider going up a size. Trust us, you'll experience a solid 10% boost in brake power. Get ready to own those trails!


Steel vs. Floating: The Battle of the Rotors

It's time for a showdown! In the red corner, we have steel disc brake rotors—cost-effective and reliable, cut from a single piece of steel. They'll do the job just fine. But in the blue corner, we present the floating rotors—fancy, lighter, and cooler (literally). These come with an alloy carrier and joining rivets, making them pricier to produce. But here's the deal: floating rotors shine when it comes to heat dissipation and consistent brake performance. Say goodbye to brake fade during intense braking sessions. Who's the winner? It's up to you to decide!


Disc Brake Pads: The Perfect Pairing

Hold up, there's more to this rotor party! To unleash the full potential of your shiny new rotors, we recommend installing fresh disc brake pads. This ensures even rotor wear and prevents any damage from pesky uneven or worn-out pads. It's like finding the perfect dance partner for your rotors. Together, they'll create symphonies of braking power!


Compatibility: We've Got You Covered!

Worried about compatibility issues? Fear not! Our disc brake rotors are designed to fit most bikes out there. We rock the 6-bolt fitment for securing onto the hub. But wait, there's more! We've got center lock adapters too, so you can rock our rotors on center lock hubs. Whether you're into MTB, E-MTB, road cycling, gravel grinding, or CX adventures, we've got your back.
