THE REASON

WHEN WE DECIDED TO FORM WE ARE ONE AND MANUFACTURE CARBON RIMS HERE IN CANADA, THE PRODUCT WAS THE KEY TO A MUCH LARGER VISION.

WE BELIEVE THAT THE BOND BETWEEN RIDERS IS THE MOST FUNDAMENTAL ASPECT OF RIDING. IT DOESN’T MATTER WHERE YOU’RE FROM, WHERE YOU’RE GOING, OR WHAT YOU RIDE. IF YOU SCRAPE AWAY THE LAYERS, WE ARE ONE AT THE CORE. WE ARE ALL RIDERS.

#CONCEPTTOTRAIL

We understand and share the feeling we get on a bike. It is the reason we stay out late during the weekdays and get up early on the weekends. It's hard to put that feeling into words, but we almost never get enough it.

Our goal is to push the limits with the best possible materials, practices, and engineering. We are not building products that cut corners. All of our products are truly made in Canada and begin as a concept and are for the trail.

CANADIAN MADE FROM START TO FINISH

MACHINING MOLDS

Our process begins with having a fully operational machine shop in-house allows us to make all of the parts that go into our molds. When you start from the ground up, it is imperative to understand your manufacturing needs to produce finished "out of the mold" quality products. Nothing we manufacturer can be hidden, sanded, painted over or filled. With our rims being naked, it allows only the best to make it to market.

PROCESSING OUR FIBRE

Having a precision CNC cutting machine allows us to replicate critical layup schedules. Consistency is one of our many priorities and with sharp cutting instruments we have minimal fiber disturbance which makes for better quality parts. Our manufacturing floor motto is "Quality in, quality out."

OUR LAYUP

Our layup is what separates us from the rest. We have not left anything to chance, and we have not cut a single corner in our process. All of our layup schedules are +/- 10 grams, and we stick to quality over quantity. Our design has tested and proven its strengths. It is the most up to date design, using current materials that are pushing the boundaries of the past.

TESTING

In-house lab testing for impact, stiffness, and finish are just a few steps our products need to pass to make the grade. Our rims and wheels are also physically put to the test under some of the world's best racers. They ensure all of our products have what it takes to reach the pinnacle of performance and are ready for the market.

QUALITY CONTROL

Small batch lean manufacturing lets us process only the absolute best quality product. It allows us the added time to ensure each product has passed our checkpoints and standards. Our staff cares about what they do, and it shows in our finished product.

WHAT WE BELIEVE IN

IN-HOUSE

Being a manufacturer with the ability to create any part, mold, or process all in-house allows us to pay the finest attention to our quality control.  We have all the latest state of the art machinery at our fingertips. "In-house" we can decrease development times, ensure we are on track with testing and bring the best possible product to market. We refuse to let any bit of our carbon production pass outside of our shop.

RESPONSIBLE

Any company today needs to have a plan from start to finish for their products. It starts with being conscious and working with your entire supply chain to reduce waste, source locally and build better practices. Not only do we make great carbon fiber products, but we are also investing in finding solutions for our carbon waste, recycling spent carbon products that have reached their end of life and reducing overall strain on the environment.

INVOLVEMENT

Creating "The Movement" because we wanted to define the reason behind WE ARE ONE. Our company wants to develop grassroots riders, bring mountain biking to a new generation of riders and help communities grow through cycling. We want to plant "The Movement" pillars in local riding communities that support and share our vision and empower them to share it with others.

THE TEAM

When a group of like-minded riders gets together with a goal to produce a ground-up product, it takes some serious skill.
