Video: Technologies Explain – Ice Technology
Shimano's proprietary Ice Technology was developed to improve disc brake performance by dramatically reducing the amount of heat build-up that occurs in rotors, calipers, pads and brake levers when riding sections of trails that involve sustained braking or when riding at high speed. Since its launch in 2010, the benefits of Ice Technology have trickled down from their high-end offerings (XTR and Saint) to the high-value Zee and XT products. Here is a short video to help explain how Shimano achieved this accomplishment and essentially redefined our expectations of modern day disc brake systems. TBS Bike Parts carries many of Shimano’s products that are feature Ice Technology to meet your trail riding needs.
