On long descents dropping thousands of vertical feet your brakes take a beating. In these conditions you quickly learn that not all rotors are created equal. Hope claims the Floating Disc Rotor resists warping even under severe heat from sustained braking. This is achieved the use of a floating design consisting of a CNC-machined aluminum carrier riveted to a laser-cut stainless steel outer rotor. When the outer rotor is subjected to serious heat it expands. By allowing it to go with the flow one at a time from the center carrier the rotor can expand and shrink at will without stressing the carrier, preventing permanent deformation. The rotors come in five anodized color options, making them the very best complement to your Hope brakes. Hope says they may be able to be used with other brake brands, but you will have to check the clearance with your caliper once everything is installed, as the rivets sit about 1mm above the braking surface and you do not want them contacting your brake pads. Depending on your frame and fork mounting style in addition to your desired rotor size, you may also need a Hope disc brake adapter to as it should be space your caliper.
