"In a move to match pace with evolving trends in drivetrain components, ROTOR Bike Components has expanded its range of chainrings to be even more compatible with SRAM AXS and Shimano GRX.
New Q RINGS combinations for Shimano GRX, and a new 50/37 for SRAM RED and Force eTap AXS give users 12.5 percent ovality for taking on the tough terrain that’s currently attracting cyclists. ROTOR has also honored individual preferences with an AXS-compatible 50/37 round chainring as well.
"Gravel riding has evolved in a short time with new demands for gearing because riders have become more daring with their route choices", said Julio Madrigal, Product Manager for ROTOR. At the same time road gearing has also been reimagined. We’ve chosen to add to our existing range of chainrings for both SRAM and Shimano to meet these new demands and concepts.
Q RINGS options have never been better because drivetrain innovations have never been more diverse.
When SRAM upended standard chainring sizes with its RED eTap AXS 12-speed groupset, ROTOR pivoted quickly on the concept and created compatible Q RINGS. 50/37 and
48/35 Q RINGS combinations with either BCD 110x4 or BCD 107x4 are new standards for SRAM loyalists who want nonstandard chainrings.
Shimano took an early lead in the gravel category when it introduced its dedicated GRX groupset for gravel.
Not one to follow, ROTOR quickly caught up with compatible 48/31 and 46/30 Q RINGS combinations with BCD 110/80x4 for GRX."
