    Marta Mag SL plus Alligator Wind Cutters

    TIA

    Anyone out there run Alligator wind cutters with Magura Marta SLs?

    Any compatibility issues? If not, how was/is the performance?

    I can't comment on the Alligators from personal experience (I've heard they aren't too good) but I ran the Ashima Airotors once upon a time on mine. They are extremely light, inexpensive, compatible, and have plenty of power. If you haven't bought rotors yet, I would suggest either the Airotors or Storm SL's. I currently have the Storm SL's and like them too.

    I have this setup, well older marta sl's, works fine for typical XC......only problem is really steep or long downhill sections...you'll get some fading......they get so hot you get burning smell, cooked rotors and pads.......so you're rotors will get discolored and pads will get glazed and require a sanding...
