We Are One has announced aftermarket availability of the new Convergence mountain bike rim, a composite rim they say represents a leap forward in technology that surpasses their current top-of-the-line rim in impact strength, interface and ride feel. It is said to be 32% stronger than the Union 29 rims thanks to use of special ZRT composite films, while retaining sufficient compliance for good grip and vibration damping.
The Convergence rims are intended for the trail rider or enduro racer who wants a high quality, performance enhancing wheelset. There are three Convergence rims to choose from; the Sector, Triad and Fuse with 28mm, 30mm, and 33mm internal widths, respectively. For now, here are the need-to-knows; a first ride review is in the works.
