My question stems from some great advancements in road cycling that have come out of Germany. SRM power meter. Lightweight wheels. Just two companies that come to the top of my mind in terms of completely leading and changing the industry. Not to mention other industry leaders like ax-lightness and others. I can only think of a high quality German engineering producing a road group set. Maybe one day?
Some of the best composite tech comes from German companies so it could be interesting if mated to Di2 type reliability.
Stiff, Light, Aero - Pick Three!!
Also I think it will be a high entry barrier for this segments.

I was about to mention this too! ACROS' hydraulic system is my holy grail, what an awesome system.

I am also curious on how Rotor can stand up to the big brands. Tiso had 12 speed electronic wireless but could not release it due to patents (my guess Sram is holding this).
Sad since the prototype was ready 2012.
