despite the funny look...

(they look like truck driver stuff).... this guy claims his rotor is 50gr lighter than Avid and Hayes at 100gr. As far as I know Avid/Hayes rotors are 110gr... and according to my math...that's only 10 grams...

I'm still reticent to use SS bolts on aluminum.... easily seizing (if you forget Loctite or overtorque).

http://weightweenies.starbike.com/listings/components.php?type=discbrakes lists 160mm rotors between about 110 and 150.

I find it very interesting that the description of how and why the wavy rotor works is nearly word-for-word from the post that Galfer USA gave on this board (may have been the old board).

It "quality" of the stainless steel alloy used seems strange to me, too. The reason for using stainless is not (just) for rust resistance. The alloy is chosen for its grip/bite and wear properties. I have never had any of my "inferior" stainless rotors (Avid and Galfer) rust in my wet, muddy Oregon conditions.

Weight? My 160 mm Avid rotor is 110g, no where near the 150g claimed so a savings of a whooping 3-10g!
