Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Shimano Ice Tech Rotors
This is the front rotor. I have 300 miles on it.
The rear Rotor is wearing a little smother but the front one is not wearing in very smooth
Is this wear pattern normal for them for a while ?

To me, it looks OK. Keep in mind that those cutouts will wear a bit differently, due to being site-hardened by the process of making the cutout (most likely stamping, but maybe an EDM process), as will the edges. As long as the areas showing less or no wear correspond with the contours of the disc, things are OK. If you start getting radial lines, or 'corrugated' wear, THEN you have a problem.

Thanks for the reassurance that things are ok
I do notice that the other side of the rotor is not so pronounce wear with the cutouts (smoother wear) so the "stamping" method makes sense.

Thanks for looking and your opinion :thumbsup:

They're fine, in fact, they're just getting broken in. It takes a long time to wear rotors down to the point that you need to replace them.

That's not an Ice Tech rotor. And as previously posted it's not only not worn out, it's barely broken in.

No...It's not worn out.....It's brand new with only 300 miles on it.
Funny.....It says Ice Technology on it

It's not an Ice Tech Freeza. The one you have is sort of middle of the road. But yeah, whatever.
