- Awesome stopping power
- Good response
- Look sleek and unneeded material is cut away
- A little thin and bend without too much trouble
A superb rotor that will stop you dead in your tracks. When paired with a proven quite brake the discs are silent. I have had great success in terms of noise and performance with Avid Juicy 7's and Shimano SLX brakes. Friends of mine running Elixirs sound like a herd of turkey's coming down the trail. Just some food for thought.
I do agree that they are a bit on the thin side and tend to bend very easily. I haven't found that affects performance or wear but it is something to consider if you're hard on your gear or if you're riding in rough terrain. Extra care during storage should also be taken.
With the release of the new Avid HS1 rotors the G2s do look a little dated. Granted this means that you should be able to find a pair of G2s for even cheaper; which makes them even a better deal!
