SRAM/Zipp/Quarq 

The SRAM group always has great stuff to show off. Quarq recently launched its new DZero platform, Zipp has the NSW lineup all wrapped up, and SRAM continues to push its drivetrain componentry.

  • The new Quarq DZero carbon crank is available in lengths down to 162.5mm, in both 110 and 130 BCD.
  • The new Quarq DZero SRAM Red crank is nearly the same as its Quarq-branded alternative.
  • Quarq Prime offers carbon crank arms and a replaceable spider for users to add the powermeter electronics in a later time.
  • The Quarq DZero platform is very exciting and adaptible to a lot of different applications.
  • The Quarq DZero PCB is a beautiful marvel of engineering.
  • Zipp's Vuka Race Carbon extensions, featuring internal cable routing and integrated rubber plugs for slick 1x setups.

K-Edge 

K-Edge makes some finely-machined mounts for Garmin, GoPro, and other accessories. They also have a nice chain guide that can replace the front derailleur for 1x setups. I generally like to keep my front ring bare on 1x setups, and rely on a wide-narrow chainring and clutch RD to keep my chain in place. But for rougher terrain or just extra peace of mind, this would be a great accessory.

Edco 

Edco makes an interesting monoblock cassette, similar to SRAM's RED cassettes, but with fewer features and at a lower price. This one comes in a variety of gear ratios up to 11-32t on the wide end. I like how the cassette is a true monoblock, no loose cogs on top (most monoblock cassettes keep the 11t cog as a separate part).
