First look: Rotor's new 13-speed groupset

Rotor has gone nuclear, introducing the Rotor 1x13 groupset for both road and mountain biking

Rotor has trumped SRAM, Shimano and Campagnolo to become the first brand to release a working one-by 13 groupset on the road .

Citing the success, and subsequent adoption, of the one-by standard in mountain biking Rotor has dropped the double ring setup with its new groupset. The brand is coming out swinging, believing that with its gear ratios, the same standards can and will be adopted for the road, gravel and cyclocross disciplines.
