    Advid G2 vs G3 Rotor?

    I have the choice of puuting on some G2 or G3 rotors on my new wheelset. Just wondering if there was any performance differance between the two. Brakes are Advid Juicy Utimates.

    thanks in advance,

    I think you might get quieter braking with the G3's.

    The G2 is good, the G3 is slightly better... but the Avid Cleen Sweep Serpentine Wavy rotor is the absolute BEST Avid rotor ever made. At only 100g(160mm) it stops quietly and with much power. It turned my BB7s into one-finger brakes. Too bad Avid stopped producing them, after Galfer(Magura Marta SL rotor maker) sued Avid and SRAM over patent and design infringement. Occasionally, you can find them on eBay. I liked the design so much I got Magura Marta SL(too much power!) brakes when I finally went with hydros. I was clearly not happy(no power) with my Juicy Ultimates, at all. Here is what the Serpentine rotor looks like. You can easily see the similarities with Magura/Galfer:

    G3s are a bit lighter. They make a bit less noise.
