Still no Kettle Cycles carbon rotor review?
My rotors are in the mail, but I would have thought others have already received them. Can anyone comment on performance? Quality? Even a photo? C'mon, I can't be the first way up her in Canada.
OK, I suppose this is a cross-topic between WW and Brake Time. Found a couple of threads:
Carbon Brake rotors
SiCCC Carbon Rotors User Review
...I'll crawl back into my cave now.
Here you go Phlegm, pics from Canada. Both of my 160mm SFL were under the claimed weight of 55 grams = 53 grams. Checked them on a piece of glass and they are perfectly true.

I received mine 4th July.
Installed them, nice and light and true.
180mm front, 160mm rear; did fit without any problem.
After burn in and testing them about a month, I took them off again and installed my XT rotors.
The carbon rotors were not performing well enough for the mountains here, they could not stop the bike when going down steep hills/mountains.
Too bad. I wanted to like them otherwise I would have not paid the heavy price.
Guess they will be good for other kind of terrain, light, nice and easily dose-able.
I paid 292.99 US $for them and on their website the price has gone up to 328 $ now.
Anybody give me a good offer and I will send them.
