About Disc Brake Rotors
Brake disc rotors are available in many sizes and fitments. Wiggle stock a range from 140mm up to the largest which are 203mm. Fitment varies from IS (International Standard) 6 bolt to Shimano's new Centre Lock splined type. Wiggle also hold some of the older rotors made by Hope and used by Cannondale, such as the 4 bolt Coda and 5 bolt systems. It's common for rotors to be different sizes from front to rear, with the front usually having a rotor one size up from the rear for brake bias balance, 185/165mm for example. This is because when braking, your weight shifts to the front of the bike and as much as 75% of the braking is on the front, with the rear used for control.

Magazine reviews for Ashima 6 Bolt 140mm/160mm Air Rotors
Review from Singletrack
I've been running these rotors for quite some time now and I haven't noticed them. They've quietly done their job with no fuss whatsoever. This is exactly what you want from a brake rotor.
So is that it? No, these rotors are special. Look at them, they're full of holes. Some might wonder if this has caused reduced stopping power, or premature pad wear perhaps? No, none of these negatives are present.
They are made from 410 stainless steel, heat treated to 42HRC, and then double ground (for any metallurgists out there).
The large holes make them exceptionally light. I've been running a 203mm/180mm setup which weigh 136 grams and 112 grams respectively (A Hope 180mm rotor is approx. 160 grams). They rarely squeak, and mud is quick to clear. Apparently, due to the increased airflow they don't heat up as much either, which makes sense. That's difficult to tell but it could make that miniscule difference if you suffer from brake fade. I did once burn my leg on one of them, it still felt hot.
Lighter than the rest, they just do what they're supposed to do whilst looking cool.

The only drama you might have is in re shimming the XT caliper to get a correct offset.
