In the hunt for more consistent and powerful braking, SRAM has released the brand new HS2 brake rotor. The new mountain bike-specific rotor promises superior heat management, less noise, and increased pad traction.
To achieve all of these mighty impressive claims, SRAM has designed a new brake track pattern with the aim of offering increased pad traction. That alone should mean more power. In fact, SRAM says that the HS2 rotor offers 7% more power than the Centerline rotor.
That's not all. The HS2 is built with recessed spokes, some being graced with a thermal dissipating paint and against the Centerline rotor, it's said that the HS2 stays 40°C cooler, per Garda test.
SRAM's new HS2 rotor is available in six-bolt or Center Lock mounting options and in sizes from 160mm up to 220mm.
If your braking needs a bit of a bump, the SRAM HS2 rotor will set you back from £50 for the 160mm, six-bolt model, up to £62 for the 220mm, Centre Lock model.
