Rotor uses a 30mm axle, two axle versions available (different chainline)
Red GXP uses a 24mm axle, or something like that.
What BB standard is your frame, what groupset do you have?
Is your frame the new through axle for disc brakes type?

I have a BB86 or something like that I think, will check soon, rim brake type, currently have a shimano ultegra crankset and the rest of the groupset is sram red etap. I had bought a sram red bb30 crankset in the past, but the axle was way too sort to fit.

With BB86, I would stick to 24mm crank options.

If you have Etap there is no reason not to go for Red crankset. I wouldn't use Rotor in this setup and certainly not oval chainrings!
Etap FD has been reported not to work well with oval chainrings.
