Common questions

Are galfer rotors good?

Are galfer rotors good?

Overall the Galfer floating disc rotors are great performers and also look pretty smart with the coloured detailing on them. For Alpine riding or lots of uplift laps they offer some small braking performance advantages over standard discs.

Where are galfer rotors made?

All Galfer stainless steel brake lines are made at our U.S. headquarters in Carson City, while our brake pads and rotors are manufactured in Barcelona.

How long do iron rotors last?

A variety of factors, like your vehicle size, driving style and brake quality, contribute to the lifetime of your brakes. Typically, brake rotors last between 30,000–70,000 miles.

Are bigger rotors better?

Simply put a bigger rotor provided better braking, and a four pot caliper provides better braking – better meaning more, and more control (Everything else being equal). For the same force between the disc and pads, a bigger rotor generates more torque on the wheel – i.e. more stopping force.

How thick are Shimano rotors?

Shimano rotors are made 1.8mm thick and should be replaced when the thickness has been reduced to 1.5mm. Since 2010, the 1.5mm minimum recommended rotor thickness has been printed on Shimano rotors.

What are wave rotors?

The Wave Rotor has a unique laser cut design that allows for lower operating temperatures at extreme conditions, plus they are lighter than stock. Each rotor is constructed from 420 high-carbon stainless Tier-1 steel and is individually heat-treated and double-disc parallel ground to ensure perfect-flatness.

What is a wave brake rotor?

The lightweight brake rotor design with high heat dissipation uses novel surface cooling technology. The periodic wave rotor technology is a suite of rotor designs that provides dramatic weight reduction along with high heat dissipation — two of the primary challenges associated with high-performance braking systems.
