While cable actuated and electronic drivetrains are quite the norm, Rotor decided to do things a little differently with its Uno Hydraulic Rim Shift/Brake Kit. This fully hydraulic groupset adds impressive smoothness to your shifting, and more powerful braking with better modulation as you train and race, all at the lightest weight possible from any current road groupset. Much like your training regimen, Rotor aims to define its performance through differentiating its self from the others, which is what led to the development of the first hydraulic groupset. Integrating hydraulic technology from disc brakes into the drivetrain, Rotor's engineers were able to craft shifters that give you the power of efficiency and tactile command, with a smoothness that was previously never seen in shifters. Hydraulics don't only lend themselves to smoothness though, they also have the ability to reduce maintenance, with no cable stretch over time or pressure, and only one bleed necessary every year, which can be easily performed with the two included kits. Shifting on the UNO should feel buttery smooth, but may take a moment to get used to as Rotor situates all indexing in the derailleurs, instead of shifters. Shifting is done with a double-tap style actuation, and is capable of shifting a full 4 gears at a time. Since your shift doesn't involve cable pull it won't give the same feedback that a mechanical system gives you, instead feeling buttery smooth, with no drag as it shifts positively through the cassette in a quick and decisive manner. Defined indexing helps with the feel when you need to shift under load, keeping things precise and reducing the possibility of missed, or accidental half-shifts. The rear derailleur also features an easy-access switch that drops you to the lowest sprocket that enables quick and easy wheel swaps. It's no surprise with Rotor that details aren't taken lightly, so they've engineered a comically light cassette to go along with the groupset. W...

The pika is a close relative of the rabbits and hares, with two upper incisors on each side of the jaw, one behind the other. Being rock-gray in color, pikas are seldom seen until their shrill, metallic call reveals their presence.
