    Ice Tech Rotor and caliper question.

    Good day guys! I'm wondering if it's okay to use non finned brake pads with an Ice tech Rotor using the SLX brake ice tech. Unfortunately, our LBS does not have finned brake pads available. I'm just concerned if it's compatible and if I won't be having issues in the long run. Thanks!

    Non finned pads will be fine.

    Thanks! Only the non finned resin pads is available at our LBS. I'm just concerned with my XT ice tech rotor.

    There's nothing to be concerned about.

    Thanks cobba!! Just need confirmation because some says that it is not advisable and could damage the rotor.

    i'm using avid organics in their elixir brakes on xt ice techs, work great and don't squeal like the POS avid rotors, i know the lower end rotors mention resin only but i would take a wild guess it's the make up of the metal being softer. more aggressive pads would just waste the rotors faster

    Ice Tech Rotor and caliper question.

    Yup +1 on racebum's. I as well use XT Icetech rotor with an elixir caliper system. No issues whatsoever.
