Description

With the SM-MA90 Disc Brake Adapter, Shimano has taken an artful leap at the lowly disc brake adapter. Not only is it lighter than their older adapters, but it's more refined -- this refinement being the reason for its lightness. Where Shimano's older adapters were blocky, this one has curved edges. Where they were solid, this one has a window machined out of the center of the adapter body.

The Shimano SM-MA90 Disc Brake Adapter is available in five versions to fit 160 and 180mm rotors for front ISO or Post mounts and rear ISO mounts.

Highly Adaptable

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

These can be a little confusing, call a competitive sales rep if you need guidance. The Shimano adaptors are primo, and work nicely with Shimano brakes, or whatever else you happen to be using.

Basic excecution

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

It is amazing that a seemingly basic component can be done in so many different ways at different degrees of successful execution. Shimano does theirs very well. keeps the caliper stable and in the correct position with very little, if any flex. You need this adapter for most builds today.

gotta have it

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

My fat bike came with hydraulic 160mm rotors in front and back. For winter, I wanted mechanical brakes and figured I'd upsize the front. Need an adapter to accommodate the 180mm rotor. I used this even though installing TRP Spykes with an centerline rotor--it's all working well together.

Does the job

Light, and a necessity for running larger rotors out back in 180 size

Unanswered Question

I have a 140 post mount rear and I want to use a 160 disc rotor, which adapter do I choose?

180s 4eva

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I always upsize my rotors to 180, front and rear. These will get the job done.

Upgrade to 180

    I recently installed new rotors on my Santa Cruz Tallboy LTC. After riding a friends bike which had 180mm rotors front and rear, I decided I'd do the same. It's made a noticeable difference for sure. I got the Post for the front and the ISO option for the rear. Just a heads up sometimes ISO is referred to as IS.

    Fits Avid brakes

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    Bought this to install a Avid Elixir 9 Trail front caliper on a post to post mount using a 180 Rotor. Fits perfectly! Avid for some strange reason does not sell a 180mm adapter, but only provides them on complete bikes.

    Will this adapter work with shimano xt...

    Will this adapter work with shimano xt brakes on a Fox float RL fork (with post mount). Trying to put on a 180mm rotor but want to make sure i get the right adapter. Thanks.

    The Post 180 mount will work no problem.
