I just noticed that Wheeltop have updated their website, and they show some more info on their road groupsets.
It seems that they have options for rim and disc brakes in aluminium and carbon variants.
Other info is a little bit scarce, their main feature on the MTB derraileur was that you could adjust the amount of gears from 7 to 13. I hope it remains the same with the road groupset.
Prices seem to be cheaper than ltwoo, but kinda hard to judge, since the prices are without tax.
Everything looks to be wireless too, only difference is, the batteries are not removable.
EDIT: original link is broken, here is the new one:

Very interesting. All wireless is a big plus and if they have to sacrifice easily swappable batteries so sram doesn't take the to town I'm fine with it. They're probably still gonna be replacable if you have a failure, just gonna need some work. Hydraulic and mech shifting is also a big positive, It's not a bad Idea since they don't have to compete against Ltwoo there.

Functionality is a big questionmark here. On paper they have a few less points of failure than Ltwoo but I've not heard good things about the shifting performance from their mtb electronic stuff. Not an impossible area to improve but something to keep an eye on. Early reports on Ltwoo's stuff were less favourable than they are now too.

MTB now states 11/12s. I expect road to be the same.

I've contacted WheelTop to buy a groupset as they're not available online to buy, this was their answer
I hope this email finds you well. We appreciate your interest in our EDS TX .

Our team is currently in the process of upgrading the EDS TX Highway Electric Transformers, and as a result, we are temporarily not selling them to external customers.

We understand that this may cause inconvenience, and we apologize for any disruption this may cause to your plans. We are working diligently to complete the upgrades and ensure that the product meets the highest standards before we make it available for sale again.

Thank you for your continued interest in our products.

Best regards,
wheeltop service
I guess they found a flaw in some components and now they're fixing it so I guess there's still some time to wait to have something usable
