All wheelsets come with black Insudtry Nine Hydra hubs. Please contact us if you are looking for colored hubs/spokes/nipples to create your own unique We Are One Convergence wheelset. We Are One's best rim ever. To quote We Are One, "Simply put, this is our best rim to date. Following our principle of delivering unrivaled quality that is backed by actual data, there are no false claims or made-up numbers. Our target was straightforward - design a shape that had beauty and function , with a 30% minimum increase in impact strength, and provide the best ride feel we have ever delivered to the rider. After two years, countless hours and permutations, we could not be more proud of what we have built right here in Kamloops, British Columbia." IMPACT STRENGTH Taking their time and diving deep into testing, We Are One came up with the perfect balance of weight, strength and ride feel. Drawing on all of their data from Union 29 and Union 27.5 rims, WAO built a new test protocol and focused on single-wall impact failures. They introduced a new ZRT material from Boston Materials and placed it in critical areas. We Are One completely redesigned the layup of each rim from the ground up, changing all possible orientations, angles, and processes. The result is a 29 and 27.5 rim with 32% improved impact strength over their Union rims. INTERFACE Traditionally, the interface of where the nipple sits in the rim has never been ideal. The Convergence's external shape drives the internal profile. With 7.5° alternating faces, when drilled, it gives the nipple the perfect perpendicular angle with no point loading. This feature improves fatigue on the nipples and spokes, providing unrivaled durability and prolonged service intervals.
The Revolution Rims are laced to an Industry Nine 1/1 hub front and rear. If you would like a different set of hubs laced to your favorite Revolution rim let us know and we will build you your dream wheelset! LET THE REVOLUTION BEGIN. The Revolution line of rims has been in development since June of 2018. The basis of the whole program was to round out a complete rim offering, while implementing all that we learned about THE MOVEMENT line of rims. They've said it before and they'll will say it again, not all carbon rims are made the same way. We Are One developed an entirely new moulding process that improves our layup process and accuracy. The Revolution mould process allows for even more precise fibre placement and extension than our previous designs. Each rim is handlaid right here in Kamloops, BC! The Revolution rim shape allowed We Are One to reduce radial stiffness and utilize less fibre while increasing impact strength. The shape, combined with the layup, offers a more homogenous system and provides more support to each component of the rim than ever before. We Are One is excited to present you our Revolution line up! Here at We Are One, we are the first manufacturer to bring transparency to the process and products. Our unmatched quality and precise tolerances allow us to make the best carbon rims on the market. Period. Hand-laying each rim in Kamloops, BC allows us to have a unique layup process developed in-house. This makes for precise fibre placement, giving no fibre drift or bridging during layup. This process ensures that all our fibre strands are under correct elongation and are carrying the loads they should. All of our rims are perfect out of the mold. We do not sand, fill, paint, or doctor any of our products. Each rim is assigned a unique serial number that is tracked and assembled by one of our layup staff. Our team takes great care and pride with producing the best rims possible.
Being a company of mountain bikers, when Race Face set out to design a new wheel, their goal was simple, "Make the wheel we want to ride." HUB - Large oversized flange for improved bracing angle - Larger bearings - No bearing adjuster - Wider bearing stance - Balanced spoke counter bore - Tool-free interchangeable end caps (sold separately) RIM - 30mm Internal width tubeless ready rim - 4.5mm Offset – Improves spoke balance and wheel stiffness - New stronger alloy for highest impact resistance of any Race Face or Easton rim - High gloss black water transfer logos
