Hi Folks,

Anyone heard of those rotors ?!

XLC claims to deliver improved braking by treating the rotor with a ceramic coating.


Any thoughts ?! Would love to hear from someone that is actually using those!

Seen a few of these over the years, never heard good reports.

That is sad, this is one hell of a good looking disc!

Would love to try them, but there are no pads available for my calipers.

Oh well

Hi guys,

I bought the BR-X76 rotor wich are the same expect the carrier is aluminium.
I have paired it with some organic brake pads (specific brake pads aren't available for my caliper) on a gravel bike to try it out but I'm not satisfied by the braking power for the moment (rotor looked glazed). I guess rotors and pads are still bedding in but i don't expect to have as much power as from steel ones.
If it stay as weak in power, I will try to sand lightly the braking surface or lastly change to light steel rotor.

Let's see in few rides...
