Say Hello to the New Kid on the Block.

While component manufacturers across the globe eagerly raced to tackle the number twelve, you might have been duped into thinking that our designers here at ROTOR were taking things a little slow. And while we admit that we may have sat on the backburner through the beginning of the race, we're fans of the Tortoise-and-the-Hare approach to things. We let our patience, deliberate moves, and calculated approach lead us ahead, and our new 1x13 drives the point home.
