- Floating rotors
One of mine got so loose that it rattled all the time but this was just one out of six or so that I have had over many years. Sent it back to Hope explaining it was a least 3 years old and obviously out of warranty but could they repair it or should I bin it and they just sent me a new replacement, next day delivery. What I am saying is the rotors are great but also the back up from Hope just brilliant. Agree that you need to watch out for the Alu spider catching the fork stanchions, they seem thicker than a standard rotor. They also come in funky colours ( to match the Hope hubs, brake bits etc – real bling)Posted 4 years agonjee20Subscriber
Not worth it, no.
I broke both of mine in a particularly wet race, pads wore down, used the rivets to slow down, braking surface detached from spider as the rivets wore out. Normal rotor would have been fine, weighed the same, rubbed less and cost half the amount. 😕Posted 4 years agobikewhispererMember

So the tabs or the backing material of the pads cut the rotors to pieces. Is that their problem?
FWIW, I don’t think they’re worth the extra money. I’ve got one as a front rotor though, and it stays true and goes ‘ping’..Posted 4 years ago
