The AGENT with Hope
Hear the noise from across the pond!
Our goal with the AGENT lineup was to create the new standard for carbon mountain bike rims. The proprietary layup and material for our AGENT rim have been carefully selected and engineered for maximum durability without having a harsh ride feel. With actual in-house testing completed, numerous changes perfected, and multiple races won, the We Are One team has designed a rim from the ground up that is proudly manufactured right here in Kamloops B.C. Canada. All of our wheels are hand built in-house by our trusted and trained builders to ensure the best quality.
Compact and Wrinkle Free
With proprietary bladder technology, we are able to elevate our production pressures to wipe out any wrinkles in the internal structure, leaving an equally compacted part. It is essential because any fiber that is not correctly elongated can lose fiber orientation and have considerable reductions in mechanical properties. More accuracy and precision makes stronger and responsive rims.
With all of our molds made in-house by our machinist, we have the most accurate bead seat dimensions. It ensures proper tire fit for ease of inflation and the ability to showcase the beauty of a correctly made part. All of our rims are entirely cured and cooled in the mold, so no possible warping or ovalization of the rim happens. More exact dimensions make building wheels more precise and hold true longer.
Even Fiber Distribution
Our Layup process allows us to pinpoint all of our layers of fiber in the exact position we want them. The rims are made up of both Woven and UD fibers and have strategic placement of both to increase strength and benefit ride quality. This makes for the ultimate manufacturing consistency and the highest quality rim.
