SRAM Centerline Rotor

Stay cool.

The new Centerline Rotor features an updated profile that does a better job controlling cooling and keeping the braking track straight than previous models. SRAM’s new rotor features a series of elongated vents positioned directly in the braking track and also incorporates a 12-spoke design. By preventing warping and other lateral distortion that can occur when heated, this design not only aids in overall cooling but it also creates a more consistent center of friction, which results in braking that is smoother and more reliable.

It’s good

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

Good price, good rotor, and, best of all, not bent+rubbing like the highly used one it replaced

Thanks for the review Krisitn! Super helpful to get this feedback out to the community.

My only rotor

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Pair this up with some guide brakes and OH BOY you've got a killer braking system. Except it's not killer, because they'll save your life. Either way, they are fantastic rotors. Don't ride anything but centerlines in 180.

You want to stop?

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

cause this is how you stop. The SRAM centerline rotor is awesome for a less-than top of the line option. Run it with the SRAM Guide and you'll have solid braking control.

Works well

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It's a 6 bolt SRAM Rotor. Not much to say other than it does the job. I have had occasional noise issues after changing pads but that could be because I did not change the rotors when changing brake pad compounds, which you should generally do.

Gets it Done!

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Through it was time to swap out rotors and pads, so I thought I would give these a try over the Centerline X because these are a bit more affordable. So far, they feel pretty much the same! You might be gaining a little more weight since this is one solid piece of steel, rather than having the aluminum center, but I think the affordability is worth the weight. Get some!

Unanswered Question

what is the sram part number on the 200mm rotors? according to the sram website, it should be 00.5018.037.004. can anyone confirm?

OK

    Pretty affordable, but honestly not as durable as my old IceTechs.

    Don't notice them

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Rotors shouldn't be seen or heard. Don't want to hear them tinging, squealing, or gobbling. Definitely don't want to see them bent out of shape.

    Haven't had any issues with Centerline (or Centerline X rotors) for the few years I've ran them. Bed them properly and you'll be set!

    Stop

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I've used these rotors with SRAM guide brakes the last two seasons and they work great. Quiet, responsive and durable.

    Centerline punch it

    Don't go around that rock garden that keeps scaring you. just keep speed and roll right down the middle of it. Don't worry. you will able to slow down on the other side

    This rotor...

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Helps me stop. Really fast. Running guide brakes on yeti sb6 front and rear.

    MET MY EXPECTATIONS!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have SRAM Centerline rotors on my Yeti SB5c paired up with SRAM Guide R brakes. The Guide R’s have great modulation (gradual increment in braking force with proportional lever pull) and Centerlines are the matching rotors for them. I use one of these 200 mm up front and a 180 mm rear. Needed the SRAM +40 mm post mount adapter (bracket) for my Fox 34 fork and the +20 mm post mount adapter (spacers) for my rear swing arm mount on my Yeti SB5c. They are simple, reasonably priced and work really well for my needs. I run a Large frame and weigh about 200-205 lbs with full riding gear and like to ride 15+ minutes descents. No howling or squealing so far. Riders with lighter weight and/or cross country riders (shorter or less aggressive downslope riding) may not get much benefit of large (200 mm F/180 mm R) rotors.

    They stop you quickly

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These rotors not only look great but they function well. They ditch heat like a radiator. Durability is on par with any top notch rotor. Really the only drawback to these rotors is they are a little heavy. However, Sram offers the Centerline X Rotors if you want to save the weight.

    Nice, inexpensive rotor.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I got this as a replacement rotor for a shimano ice front rotor. I have to take my front wheel on and off when putting my bike on the rack, so the soft ice rotor regularly needed to be trued. So I got this solid rotor, and I haven't had any problems since. It's a little heavier, but its worth it.

    Confidence Inspiring

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Coming off Formula brakes, these are a big upgrade. They give you full confidence in all conditions and stay very quiet.

    Confident stopping power

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Quiet and vibration-free braking, with good heat dissipation to resist warping and overheating.

    Tried and True

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have used these rotors on three different bikes now, they do the job. I have only had to replace one so far, and it wasn't anything abnormal, it lasted 2 seasons of heavy abuse.

    Yup you will stop!

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    These will allow you to stop!!! Easy installation.

    STOP

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Running a 200mm in the front and 180 in the rear on my Santa Cruz Nomad. Foolproof installation, excellent stopping power, and manages heat really well.

    Which rotor bracket adapter did you use for this 200mm rotor
