"The REX is a game changer! I took a pound off the weight of my bike making it physically faster and more nimble, the chain stays on no matter what you hit, I haven’t dropped a chain once since I fitted it. You can control your efforts better and put more power down on steep climbs when you need it. Reduced fatigue over long races and it helped me eliminate cramps at an event that I have always suffered.
They are easy to fit, fantastically well-made, light and look Pimp!"

"Since the start of the 2014 season the Mountain Trax – Vauxhall Motor's Cycling Team have been using ROTOR REX cranks with QX1 narrow/wide chainrings. The aluminium cranks weigh in at the same weight as their carbon rivals but offer extra stiffness with the 30mm axle. The 12.5% ovalised QX1 chainrings create a more efficient pedal stroke by removing the deadspot at the top and bottom of the pedal stroke, we found this result is an increased power output and reduced fatigue. On the mountain bike the smoother chain tension results in better traction through the rear wheel, this is particularly noticeable on steep loose terrain. The team used the Rex QX1 to considerable success including winning Bike Transalp and the Isle of Man End to End, plus finishing top 20 at the World Marathon Series. The team are pleased to be using ROTOR Components again in the new season."
