This rotor fits on 6 bolt hubs, not the newer Centerlock hubs!

    Pros
    Cons
  • Shimano XT has a proven track record.
  • Some people report better braking with the  RT86 on long descents due to heat dissipation by the aluminum core - but reviews are mixed.
  • Many report that it is more durable than RT86.  It doesn't get bent as easily and is easier to realign when it does get bent.

This rotor is does not have Shimano's Ice-Tech - meaning the rotor is pure steel rather than steel around an aluminum core. The aluminum core is supposed to transport heat away from the braking surface better, creating better performance on long descents. Some users report improved performance; others aren't so sure.
