For 2012, Cervelo has compiled its innovative knowledge in an excellent frame called R5CA. The R5CA is the product of the new production techniques, test methods, and lay-ups developed by Cervelo, which means that this frameset is a technical breakthrough with many things to offer, like its rotor crankset.

Very light weight, the Rotor 3D30 is a thoroughbred performance aluminum crank. For riders who want to tackle bad roads and long rides with much ease, this is the ideal frameset as it offers much comfort from its vibration damping and vertical compliance.

Climbing is made easier by the low weight of the 2012 Cervelo R5CA Road Frameset with a Rotor Crankset. Torsional stiffness allows the riders to descend with confidence and safety while BB stiffness helps them conserve energy. Also, its tube is made light, stiff, strong by its Squoval design.

This stem is somewhat identical to a previous stem they had before, only better.

They made two models on this handlebars, the S2 and the SX. The S2 is almost the same to the old Rotor S1 Stem, only  that the S2 has adopted the T25 Torx-Headed Dual Thread Technology which has clamping bolts in place and a 3mm Allen-head DTT bolts of the S1 thus making this new change way better.

Rotor Bike Components always try to manufacture products that can make your cycling experience better. Newly improved AGILIS 2010 gets a makeover that can make each cyclist want to own one of it. The updated axle has increased stiffness while the modified crank is made up of Hollowminium II. This is one of Rotor Technology that throws out unnecessary materials leaving only the needed components of the compound.

Following suit with their 3D cranks, the AGILIS 2010 has similar axle and crank clamp design. There will be a need for a conventional manner in the installation process. Replacing the use of two conventional bolts for clamping is a solo oversized DTT bolt. It functions to connect the crank and the bolt and allows you to avoid the need for a torque wrench.

The crank may seem flimsy to look at, however don’t be fooled because it is quite stiff. All crank spiders…
