Even with your top-of-the-line, super-expensive disc brakes, overheating causes fade and reduces braking power. The Avid HX1 Heat Shedding Rotor is here to put an end to the madness. Not only does Avid's new cross-drilled braking surface dissipate heat quickly, it also eliminates the loud squeaking that has made some brakes famous (or notorious). Because alloy conducts heat more efficiently, the alloy carrier on this two-piece rotor allows heat to dissipate more quickly and resists fade better than similar one-piece designs.
The Avid HSX Heat Shedding Rotor is the next step in disc brake technology. The two-piece stainless steel and alloy design utilizes cross-drilled technology for significant weight savings without compromising durability. The new design promotes heat regulation, and weighs around ten grams less than previous models. The cross-drilling also sheds water quickly, resulting in increased stopping power in wet weather.
The Avid HSX Heat Shedding Rotor is available in 160mm, 180mm and 200mm size. It uses the IS 6-bolt mounting pattern.
