The SRAM CenterLine X Rotor takes all the high-powered braking and effortless cooling capacity of the original CenterLine rotor and ups the ante with a dual-material construction that pairs its steel braking surface with a lightweight and long-lasting aluminum centerpiece. Its 12-spoke design fends off lateral bending and warping under heat stress for confident stability and smooth, predictable braking. As with it single-piece counterpart, this rotor boasts venting lines across the braking track to minimize overheating and provide consistent power on wide-open descents and highly technical runs.

The best brake rotors on the market.
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
I've used Shimano XT Ice rotors for a few years and had thought they were the bees-knees. The AVID/SRAM rotors are a step up in my opinion.
The Avids are equally good at dumping heat, equally light, equally blingy. Where they come out on top is in 2 areas:
1) They seem to be more resistant to all of the annoying sounds calls that brake rotors can be prone to making--the mating sounds of geese and the sound of dying burros. The Avids are quieter, longer--even when used with Shimano pads.
2) These seem to be more corrosion resistant than Shimanos. I use disc brakes in snow, salty roads, rain, mud, crud, and crap. Sometimes literally. The Avids wash up simply and just don't corrode or show deterioration.
Longevity wise, I have no complaints. Get them nice and flat/even at the start, and these will last for years, even under hard use. I tend to replace several sets of pads before replacing rotors.
Do these come with the rotor bolts?
