    Rotor Thickness Request

    Looking for lighter weight rotors to shave some grams off my goat.

    What is the thickness of the Aliigator Windcutter, Ashima Airotor AND Formula R1 rotor??

    I am using Magura Marta SL brakes so I'd like to make sure that the rotor thickness is compatible with these brakes.

    Also looking for any other suggestions to replace the Magura Wavy SL rotors to save weight.

    Thanks,
    'hawg

    At 1.74mm pictured above is very close to Magura's rotor wear limit of 1.70mm. You need rotors at 2.0mm and higher.

    Avid G3 is 2.30mm and the new XX floating is exactly at 2.0mm.

    Have the current XX rotors been replaced with a floating design?
