    989
    I've been using the formula R1 rotors for 2+ years with the XTR M988s on my race bike. Have had great luck with them and they're fairly light at ~90 grams.

    That said, I just picked up a pair of the XT ice tech 6 bolt rotors, primarily out of curiosity, to use with a new set of 988s. If they're too heavy I'll likely end up back on the formula rotors, but figured I'd give them a try.

    Already have XT IceTech rotors (160mm is 116g) but want something lighter

    Will check Formula rotors in local store
