Not all Carbon rims are created equally. Here at We Are One we are the first manufacturer to bring transparency to the process and products. Our unmatched quality and precision tolerances allow us to make the best carbon rims on the market. Period!
Our unique layup process, developed here in-house, allows for precise fiber placement, giving no fiber drift or bridging during layup. This process ensures that all our fiber strands are under correct elongation and not 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 and only produce the best rim possible.
Let us help you build the best wheel!
Building with our carbon rims is a pleasure. We do have some requirements that will ensure you achieve the best possible outcome and reduce the risk of unforeseen issues out on the trail.
Some key tips
Spoke Tension Meter
We always require that you build with a high-end tension gauge. Make sure that the tension meter is calibrated and reading correctly.
Our high tension target is 115kg/f. Do your best to keep all tension within 2% from one spoke to the next on each side of the hub. If you can achieve better, the better the wheel will be, and the longer it will go without needing maintenance.
DO NOT build our wheels without a tension meter. It will lead to premature failure and undue stress on the rim.
Sapim Polyax Secure Lock Nipples
All of our rims must be assembled with Sapim spokes and nipples. Sapim makes by far the best nipple in the industry, and we do not rely on anyone else in-house.
The shape of the Polyax nipple is ideal for building without washers and provides the best possible nipple to spoke articulation to date.
If you cannot use or find the Polyax nipples, let us know, and we can sell you some and ship them with your rim order.
Pro Level Truing Stand
Using high-quality tools always gives the best outcome. If you have taken on the job of building up your wheel, please ensure you have the required tools to do so.
A professional Parktool truing stand, lateral dishing tool, and high quality 4 sided spoke keys are an excellent place to start.
Take your time and enjoy the process. Building wheels can be very rewarding and the outcome, if done right, can last a lifetime.
