Looking for some new rotors or Discs as i like to call them as being non american.

Looked at all sorts, i like the XT ice tech ones and obligatory floating coloured ones.
So i've looked at the superstar ones

and the Uberbike ones

Look a bit similar ;)

but am i missing a obvious choice?
203mm front 180mm rear.

After using my spare wheels this morning i notice the difference in braking power of the X0 discs i have on my good wheels as being a bit naff, to the cheaper Superstar pressed steel versions being far better, and using the same pads.

I noticed how poor my breaking was in wales, and i think it could of contributed to my crash last month?

Toodles

I would thoroughly recommend the Shimano ICE tech rotors had 2 sets and both have been brilliant.

They have been the ones that stay the most true for me even in the 203 size.

Incidentally i am going to up my rotors from 180 to 203 as i feel i could do with a bit more

I ordered some new XT ones in the end. CRC didnt have a pair and were slightly more expensive.

RedTwo, XT brakes are awesome, best brakes for the money.
