HOPE FLOATING DISK ROTOR 203MM 6 BOLT
As with everything that Hope produces, there is a whole bunch of precision engineering and fine attention to detail that goes into the creation of their brake rotors. The braking surface is laser cut from a sheet of steel and riveted to an aluminium central carrier to promote the dissipation of heat and compensate for thermal expansion. Available in a range of anodised colours, these rotors will make any bike look great while also improving its performance under braking.
Who's this for: The floating rotors are designed to dissipate heat well so these are a great choice for gravity fed riding on steep trails. They'll perform well for almost any type of riding though.
What's included? 1x brake rotor, 6 bolts
Mounting standard: 6 bolt
Materials: Steel braking surface riveted to an aluminium carrier.
Brake pad compatibility: Compatible with resin, metallic, and semi-metallic pads.
Stand out features: Floating rotor setup dissipates heat well while minimising deformation.
Dimensions / weight: Approx 146g for a 180mm rotor.Note: The rivets on these rotors protrude approx 1mm from the surface of the disc which may cause clearance issues with some frames and forks.
For optimal clearance, the rotors are best paired with Hope hubs and Hope brake mounts. Even then there is the possibility that the rivets will not adequately clear the brake caliper or mount on some setups.
Unfortunately, there is no magic formula for predicting this so please take care during the initial installation and double-check your clearance before proceeding.
