Young entry-level gravity riders have something new for 2013, the Shimano Zee Group Set, which has been introduced as Saint’s little brother. This new groupset is a replacement of the Hone groupset, Shimano’s attempt to create a more affordable version of the Saint.

Named after ‘zero’, the Zee enables gravity riders to hit the extreme trails’ zero gravity without feeling restricted. Similar to the Saint, this groupset is equipped with topnotch disc brakes and the high-tech Shadow RD 10-speed rear derailleur, which offers downhill riders an exceptionally silent drive train.

For a balanced combination of rotating performance, stiffness, and strength, a hollow axle and solid crank arm was used. This Ice Tech compatible groupset’s brakes can be upgraded to the maximum Ice Tech braking power.

Taking over SRAM Rival groupset for entry level is the new SRAM Apex, which is will release to combat against Shimano’s 105 groupset. Although a beginner groupset, the SRAM Apex will use most of the same features other SRAM groupsets offer, which includes Zero Loss shifting, DoubleTap brake and shift levers, and exact actuation.

The SRAM Apex Groupset is labeled under WiFLi, which stands for Wider, Faster and Lighter. Wider comes from the crankset and cogs, giving a larger range of gears, faster due to the double crankset, and since the groupset only weighs 2,435 grams, this is where lighter comes into play, and is 105 grams lighter than the Shimano 105. Shipments will hit manufacturers in April, and retailers in June. Retail price is yet to be determined.
