Hi,

Looking for someone who has tried the Absolute Black rotors and wants to share some experiences. Things I'm interested to know more about are:
- Actual weight
- Brake performance (including squealing or a lack thereof)
- Quality of the finish of rotors
- Any sign of wear at the friction ring/spider interface after usage

I hope someone here has tried them and wants to share some info :)

Thanks in advance.

I can confirm that the weights are spot on.

I have not got my 6 bolt rotors yet. I think they are still not made.

Chris.

I have one centerlock, weight is spot on and braking is good.
I would recommend them.

Thanks Mattias. How about squeeling? Are they quiet even in wet conditions? As an engineer, how do you rate the design? Is it solid, or is there a risk that the friction ring will move too much on the spider and eventually wear out the aluminium spider?

Thanks!

Actually, the inventor/proprietor is a Forum Member here.

I have a centrelock set that I am running on a carbon tubular wheelset. The Vendor was very easy to deal with and shipped very quickly. The product itself is very well made. From a weight perspective, they were bang-on. One was lighter than advertised. They came with little stickers with the weight of each part hand-checked before shipping. Nice touch.

I do not use my MTB for much more than an off-season training distraction, so I am probably not the best judge of wear, etc., but they work just fine for me.

Even I´m a experienced cyclist and being a machinist for over 10 years , I´m no engineer.
I cannot see any serious flaws in his discs, well made and the aluminum carrier took a LONG time in the CNC mill, and as all know time = money.
That´s a part of why these discs are expensive, they ARE well made.
