Was just reading up on these on the main Rotor site (not the USA site), and they're listed at 454g for the arms. Any good? Any flexing?

They also updated the graphics which look much much better. Anyone using these yet? Anyone in the US selling them? Can't seem to find a single retailer who has them in stock. Europe definitely has them.

I like those graphics much more than their current one, don't remember seeing any sites showing those in stock...I'm guessing they're still really new and might take time to get them in?

Those + some Praxis rings would be a tasty combo.

Those graphics are a hell of a lot better. Not sure why these component companies always have to use red bits in their parts though.

Real life 3D and Q Rings. Not as light as the plus version but plenty stiff.

Wonder if power2max gets delivered with the new design?

Shot them an email and got this reply:

Hi, we are just discussing this with Rotor, since we buy them direct
from Rotor and they have not offered them to us yet ;-)

If we do get them, what I thing will happen, it could take a long time
until they deliver them, my experience with the Spanish is, that they
are not always the fastest. ;-)


Quick reply and quite direct in their response. Haven't dealt with them before but it's refreshing to get a direct answer like this.

That was a quick reply from the germans. Thanks a lot.
Guess the old design will have to do.

Those new decals are still pretty awful IMO. A shame as the crankset is very good.

Rotor is opening up a new distributor in the US who is due to have stock very soon. They will also be increasing advertising and marketing for rotor stateside. I would bet that they will be stocking the new graphics.
