    New brake rotor company in the US of A

    I was at the Canfield Brothers office the other day and got a call from this guy starting a little brake rotor company in UT. Pretty cool and looks super light ! Thought I would share,

    they've been around for awhile. Crazy expensive, and they don't make anything larger than a 180. Cool stuff though

    that's like a savings of 1/4 of a pound on most rotors....so a half a pound of rolling weight...that is insane weight savings on rolling weight

    But it's rotor weight. Spin a rotor in your hands (if you could) and it won't take much to stop it compared to a wheel. It'd be like shaving five grams from your tire.
    The warranty that says you must use their pads is understandable, the rotors probably wear pretty quick on metallic pads.
    If anyone can rock em though, more power to ya.

    Too expensive. Esp. for a part that you're eventually going to break/bend.

    Well, I'll break it anyway.

    They look spiffy though.
