    Hope m4s evos Rotor Size

    Well been running the m4 evos all summer and Im quite impressed. I ride in southeastern Wyoming, and m4s have plenty of power for my stumpy. I ran the old X2s however they lacked the power I needed and felt I was always on the brakes. With the m4s I can just use 1 finger for steep decents.

    On the rear however I did start out with a 160 rotor. Did any of you guys find a 160 rotor under powered? Feels like I was always on the brakes and burning through pads, and recently upgraded to a 183. Way better for my style of riding. Im about 200lbs without camelback and gear. One minor gripe is they arent as quite as my old x2s.

    By the way have any of you tried the semi metalic pads for your m4s? Been running the stock organic pads, seem to wear fast.
