Strengths:    Light (130g +5gcenterlock), strong, durable.

Weaknesses:    Not true out of the box.

Bottom Line:   
I got a set of used wheels with these rotors, worked well with Hayes brakes, but a bit grabby. Found a set of m785 brakes for $200 and couldn't pass on the deal, found a pair of these on sale to pair with my new brakes. Just installed last night and neither rotor is true, both rub in one spot. Not horribly, but not what I've come to expect from XTR. Could be why they were on sale above the normal end of year sales.

Even while bedding in the pads the new setup is smooth and powerful.

Also, I think they look better than the newer RT98.
