    Tektro Draco 2 Rotors with Shimano XT M785

    Hi,

    I'm hoping someone can advised me if my rotors will work with my new brakes before I buy them.

    I have a Rockhopper Comp 2014 29er, and the brakes on them are totally knackered, the brakes fitted are:

    Front Brake - Tektro Draco 2, hydraulic disc, dual piston, 180mm rotor

    Rear Brake - Tektro Draco 2, hydraulic disc, dual piston, 160mm rotor

    I hoping to buy new Shimano XT M785 kit without the rotors and use the existing rotors from the Tektro brakes.

    I believe I will have to buy a adaptor to fit the caliper with the 180mm rotor.

    These are how my rotors are currently fixed..

    But I wonder if anyone knew whether they would fit size/width wise.

    Thanks for reading.

    if you are getting new brakes get the ice tech rotors as well. The rotors you have will work but not as great. Your adapters should work fine provided you are using the same size rotors the adapters are designed for. Once again if you are spending the coin on the new brakes why cut a corner and just get the shimano adapters that were designed for the brakes. The adapters are not pricey and will alleviate and potential gremlins. So in short you can just replace the brakes and get positive results are you can go full boat and reap the all of the benefits. Also consider SLX brakes if you are not concerned about having all the adjustment of the XT's.
