Sanity check please - rotors

I'm getting ready to drive 200 miles and take delivery of a new set of wheels.

I need 140 mm centerlock rotors. These are the best, right? If I'm mistaken or confused, I'd love to find out before I order.

I have used these for 3 years on my gravel bike in a 140 and have been more than pleased. I don't think you can go wrong with either both are good and I don't think you would be able to tell the difference. I am a Bike shop mechanic and am familiar with both.

I picked the Sram because they looked stronger and cooler just my opinion.

It isn't obvious to me you can do better, unless you can put 160 mm ones on.

I have one wheelset with the 160 mm centerlocks, and one with the 6-bolts, that don't have the cooling fin. My highly subjective impression is the centerlock ones are lasting longer.

Jenson didn't have 140 mm listed last week and the website says only two in stock right now.

If you want them you had better order them. I didn't even think they made centerlock in 140 mm size until just now. 160's would be better if you can fit them.

You can go lighter or fancier and spend as much as you want but the RT99 Freeza Centerlock is a very high-end piece of equipment and will compliment your new wheels nicely. I would not hesitate to put those on ENVE wheels.

Thanks everybody!

It must be the photo, the color of the outside of the rotor looked lighter than I was used to and I wanted to make sure there wasn't some other version of RT99 that I didn't know of. Like I said, sanity check.

I just ordered two of them. I agree I'd prefer to use 160s, but I'm not sure my frame will allow it, and I know these will work. I plan to look into bigger ones in the spring.

I'm so excited to get the Enve wheels! Last time, I picked them up in January, it was 10 F in the Methow, all the roads were covered with snow. This time, there will be good riding.
