    Which Ashima 160mm rotors to get - Ai2 or AiRotor?

    The Ai2 are 20 gram lighter than the AiRotor but I'm concerned they're more likely to warp or heat up. Has anyone tried both? I'm a 95KG XC rider and usually don't encounter long descends.

    Thanks in advance!

    Your weight and mine are almost identical, I also ride XC and occasionally do encounter long descents. I've been running the AiRotors on both of my bikes, and had zero issues with them, so that's what I'd advise. My concern with the Ai2 is it just doesn't have enough mass to dissipate heat.

    Thanks for the feedback. I just ordered the AiRotors. They seem like lower risk compared to the Ai2, without any real drawbacks other than negligible difference in weight.
