The produced CF ceramic discs so far have pretty poor braking capability though, Ashima or Alligator are better! Also icetech is not about power but sustaining it under sustained heavy braking by improving the conduction. I suggest you do some more homework!

If you use a more abrasive material it can take the coating off pretty much straight away.
So, if this logic was correct, what happens when you use the correct pad but then ride through a sandy area in the wet?

dont brake let the sand do it for you.

Also the CF/ceramic rotors aremeant for braking performance at high temperatures not seen of bicycles so the whole thing maybe a nice idea that is not actually needed.
