    Shimano Rotor Question: IceTech worth the extra $$?

    I am going to order a pair of 2012 Shimano XTs, trying to decide on which rotors to go with, regular Shimano XT RT-75s or the Shimano XT IceTech RT-86s?

    Will be going the 6-bolt route and will be going 180mm up front and 160mm in the rear.

    This brake setup is for my 29er SS that I use for mostly XC riding and racing. I am 6'2" 185lbs with camelbak etc.

    Mainly wondering if the performance of the IceTechs is worth the extra $40 the pair will cost over the RT-75s?

    Many thanks in advance.

    Never used the IceTech. I run a 6 bolt 180 RT-75 up front/ 160 Shimano centerlock in the rear from a previous 775 set. I also use the non finned pads . Works great
    I'd be interested to hear from anyone that has used both combos also
