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."
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.
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.
