We just posted Absolute Black’s hot new stainless-and-alloy Raven SL Centerlock rotors, claiming to be the lightest in the world using Shimano’s mounting standard, and now we’ve got some video of them in action. It’s from their maker, so objectivity might be thrown out the window, but still very cool. Of note is how quiet they are even when being doused with water and blasting downhill. Yes, we know, a lot of noise can be blamed on frame design and rotor/caliper/mount/frame interaction, but still. Enjoy.


  1. This “test” doesn’t tell anything if we have no comparison to other products.
    These disks look nice tho.
    Oh, one more thing.
    Wouldn’t it be better to cold forge the spider?

What do you think?
