WE ARE ONE TRIAD RIM

WELCOME TO THE CONVERGENCE
Stronger, Faster, Data Driven and People-Powered
Simply put, this is weareone best rim to date. Following their principle of delivering unrivaled quality that is backed by actual data, there are no false claims or made-up numbers. Their 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 weareone have built right in Kamloops, British Columbia.
Taking time and diving deep into testing, weareone came up with the perfect balance of weight, strength and ride feel. Drawing on all of the data from Union 29 and Union 27.5 rims, weareone built a new test protocol and focused on single-wall impact failures. Introduced a new ZRT material from Boston Materials and placed it in critical areas. They completely redesigned the layup of each rim from the ground up, changing all possible orientations, angles, and processes.
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.
Using the Revolution line of rims as a benchmark, they aimed to improve an already fantastic ride experience. By reducing the depth of the rims to 18.5mm and working on both laminate orientations and materials, isolating the cause of both the radial and lateral levers of the rim design. The Convergence gives the rider a data-backed increase in lateral stiffness and a wheelset that dampens the rough chatter of the trail. The Convergence line of rims offers the best ride experience to date.
