But, for 6 years, they've been developing a fully hydraulic groupset, which is rumoured to be the lightest groupset that includes hydraulic brakes. Rotor worked with German hydraulics experts Magura to develop the braking and hydraulic shifting, and, using their own expertise in machining, have put together a cassette (still in the prototype stages) that is rumoured to weigh in at just 149g.
