Oca Image
Get to know your best effort
OCA stands for Optimum Chainring Angle and is one of the proprietary metrics offered by ROTOR INpower and 2INpower. OCA is closely linked to ROTOR Q-Rings, as it helps to find the proper chainring setup.
OCA determines the angle in degrees, measured from the upper dead spot (with the cranks perpendicular to the floor) in which the effort barycenter (area enclosed by the torque/force curve) is shown in the TORQUE 360 graph.
Only possible with Q-Rings
Optimum Chainring Position (OCP) represents the different setup positions that ROTOR Q-Rings offer to fit a rider’s distinct pedaling style. Q-Rings feature up to 5 OCP´s, with OCP 3 as an intermediate starting point, all to optimize your pedaling style.
You can determine your OCP if you know your Optimum Chainring Angle (OCA), which can be found by conducting a TORQUE 360 pedal analysis via ROTOR´s 2INpower and INpower User Software.
Get “more” out of your Q-Rings
“MAS” stands for Micro Adjust Spider and means “more” in Spanish. That’s what this technology is all about: more adjustability to further optimize your Q-Rings. Additional bolt holes allow for intermediate positions between a Q-Ring’s existing Optimum Chainring Positions (OCP).
A standard crank and Q-Ring combination offers approximately 5 degrees of OCP adjustment. MAS together with Q-Rings offer half positions of approximately 2.5 degrees of OCP adjustment. This means you can micro adjust the orientation of your Q-Rings to fine-tune your pedal performance.

How we make aluminum cranks lighter

ROTOR´s CNC-machined cranks feature our Trinity Drilling System, which is a process that drills three full-depth holes along the axis of the crank.
This allows us to remove excess material from the crank arm resulting in a lighter crank without compromising its exceptional stiffness-to-weight ratio.
TWIN Legs image
Total balance

ROTOR’s Twin Leg Concept boasts the stiffest possible crankset by balancing the cranks’ left-to-right stiffness. There is no point in making an ultra-stiff right crank arm if the left crank arm doesn’t

measure up. By designing the cranks as a real set — not just two individual arms, TLC offers the most-balanced cranks possible.

INPower image
What matters is inside
Multi-discipline power meter integrated inside the crank axle where it is protected from impact and external contaminants. Because power is measured in the left leg through two sets of opposing strain gauges placed in the axle, cyclists who already own a current set of ROTOR cranks can purchase the left crank arm independently.
Proprietary metrics TORQUE 360 and Optimum Chainring Angle combine with ANT+™ protocol metrics including cadence, torque effectiveness and pedal smoothness to provide precise data about your power output. INpower uses a standard AA battery, which can be easily replaced without tools wherever AA batteries are sold.
2INPower image
Double your data, strengthen your knowledge
Dual-sided power meter that measures power independently in each leg and accurately assesses force variations throughout a pedal stroke. Proprietary metrics TORQUE 360 and Optimum Chainring Angle combine with ANT+™ and Bluetooth® Smart protocol metrics including
cadence, balance, torque effectiveness and pedal smoothness to provide precise data about your power output. 2INpower’s rechargeable battery can last up to 250 hours and can be charged 300 times throughout its lifetime.
AERO image
Allied against the wind
ROTOR Aero components, such as Aero chainrings or the flagship aero FLOW crank, help cyclists maximize their wattage output in the war against wind resistance.
Tapered FLOW crank arms optimize aero behavior, while a smooth, solid aero chainring surface reduces aerodynamic drag.
CNC image
Manufactured with the latest technology

Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machining provides a precise and consistent manufacturing process. This is especially important when it comes to crafting bike components in order to ensure

flawless funcionality with respect to all the parts working together. Equipped with the latest CNC resources, ROTOR parts are precisely machined to within a hundredth of a millimeter.

7075 image
Why we choose aluminum

7075 aeronautic-grade aluminum alloy offers superior physical properties with which to craft

components like our signature Q-Rings, REX 3 and 3D24 cranks.

7055 image

To build the best cranks, we start with the best materials

7055 combines the superior physical properties of a 7000 alloy series with incredible fatigue resistance. Every single bar of raw material is checked by ultrasonic inspection to guarantee it free of internal

defects. 7055 is used to craft our 100% CNC machined cranks, like the FLOW, the 3D+, and the REX 1.

6066 image
What you want in your forged cranks
6066 aluminum alloy’s weight-to-resistance ratio makes it the perfect
material for forged components, like the REX 2 and 3D30 cranks.
QARBON image
Weight, stiffness and strength – get all three
3K woven, high-modulus carbon fiber is bonded to the outside of a Q-Ring to reinforce the Q-Ring´s structure. Carbon fiber´s properties allow for weight
reduction in comparison with conventional aluminum chainrings. At the same time, the stiffer carbon fiber sheet offers increased lateral stiffness.
BLUETOOTH image
Compatibility that counts

Bluetooth® Smart (LE) is the power-and-application-friendly version of Bluetooth that was built for the Internet

of Things (IoT).

ANTPLUS image
Easy data transfer via ANT+™
ANT+™ is the wireless technology that allows your ROTOR power meter to communicate with your
cycling head unit, and with the user software on your computer.
