Embodying the core principle of We Are One, and prioritizing unmatched quality supported by real data, the objective was simple yet ambitious when they set out to create the Convergence - to create a Rim that seamlessly combines aesthetics and functionality, with a minimum 30% increase in impact strength, all while delivering an exceptional riding experience. After an extensive two-year process involving countless hours and iterations, We Are One takes immense pride in presenting their meticulously handcrafted creation.
The Best Of Everything, In One Rim
By devoting significant time and effort to rigorous testing, We Are One has struck the perfect balance between weight, strength, and ride quality. Leveraging insights from Union 29 and Union 27.5 rims, they developed a new testing procedure focusing on single-wall impact failures. This led to a complete reimagining of each rim's layup from scratch and incorporation of the innovative ZRT material from Boston Materials into critical areas.
Traditionally, the rim-nipple interface was less than ideal. The Convergence rim revolutionizes this aspect by shaping the internal profile based on its external form. With 7.5° alternating faces, the drilled rim provides the nipple with an optimal perpendicular angle, eliminating any point loading. This unique feature enhances the longevity of the nipples and spokes, ensuring exceptional durability and extending service intervals.
The Convergence rim represents an evolutionary leap in rim design, fundamentally transforming the interaction between spokes and rims. Building upon the remarkable ride experience offered by the Revolution line of rims, We Are One aimed to elevate it. The Convergence provides data-backed improvements in lateral stiffness and effectively dampens the trail's rough vibrations.
The Triad Platform
The Triad platform strikes the perfect balance between size and performance. Serving as the newest 30mm internal enduro rim, it builds upon its predecessor with data-backed enhancements. The Triad surpasses anything previously created by We Are One, boasting a remarkable 33% increase in strength and an 18% improvement in ride dampening. Positioned as the ideal rim within the Convergence series, the Triad can be flawlessly paired with 2.4" to 2.6" tires, making it compatible with the most popular tire choices available. The Triad is the "Goldilocks" of rims, offering a perfect fit for discerning riders.
Given that every Convergence rim is handcrafted in Kamloops, BC, We Are One confidently stands behind its products with a lifetime warranty for the original owner. Additionally, their crash replacement policy ensures that every rider that joins the family is backed by legendary support and care.
