Purpose- There were 3 main points that went into The Union. We wanted a rim that was lighter than The Agent, had lower radial stiffness than anything we'd made before, and gain a dramatic increase in impact resistance. With our new philosophy on layup design and these key points, we were able to achieve something truly impressive. This rim is made for those who want to race Enduro at a high level and ride harder than ever before. If you have ever had doubts about carbon rims, look no further than The Union.
Tires- The tires we recommend are a range from 2.35 - 2.8
Weight- 485g for the 27.5 and 495g for the 29er
Not all Carbon rims are created equally. We Are One are the first manufacturer to bring transparency to the process and products. Their unmatched quality and precision tolerances allow them to make the best carbon rims on the market. Period!
Their unique layup process, developed in-house, allows for precise fiber placement, giving no fiber drift or bridging during layup. This process ensures that all fiber strands are under correct elongation and are carrying the loads they should. All WAO rims are perfect out of the mold. They are not sanded, filled, painted, or doctored in any way.
If you break a rim while riding, we send you a new one. Period. It is that simple. NO rim replacement cost (shipping will be charged, rebuild is at your own expense) There is no reason to be concerned about what happens anymore. Ride the industry's best carbon rims and we have your back if you break one.
Plain and simple - We cover all accidents that occur while riding your bike.
We feel that our warranty is offered for those "oops" riding incidents. If you do, however, manage to make a mistake out there in the big world and it is not while riding, let us know your story, we could be more than fair if the story is good enough to warrant it. If not we will offer a 50% crash replacement and call it fair.
Warranty covers original owners only. We do offer second-hand owners a 50% crash replacement
