OneUp Announces Carbon Bars, EDC Ready Stem & Lock-On Grips

Apr 10, 2019
by OneUp Components  

PRESS RELEASE: OneUp Components

Our goal for the new OneUp Bar, Stem and Grips was simple. It's the same for every product we've ever made. Design and engineer the components that we want on our bikes, for the riding we love here in Squamish and sell them for a fair price. We hope you like the new cockpit as much as we do. Read on for all the details.

CARBON BARS
800mm Wide / 35mm Dia. / 20mm Rise (220g) 35mm Rise (225g) / Sweep 8° Back 5° Up / $138 USD
Colour: Black. Decal kits available in Red, Green, Blue, Orange, Purple & White


We wanted to make the best feeling bar possible, something that would let us ride harder for longer. The solution is our patent pending oval bar profile which combines the best ride characteristics of 31.8mm and 35mm diameter handlebar standards. This is the most comfortable bar that we’ve ever ridden, period. It's strong, lightweight, minimizes arm pump and vibration and maximizes steering response. 35mm done right.

bigquotesThe OneUp bar gives me all of the confidence inspiring attributes of a 35mm bar with a bit of forgiveness engineered in for those big descents. I've been so impressed after putting it through the paces for the last year.Thomas Vanderham

Almost every other carbon bar on the market copies the simple tapered profile of an aluminum bar. With carbon you can take advantage of more complex shapes to get a better performing product, so that's what we did. If you actually care about bar compliance, then you don't make a round 35mm diameter bar. Sure you can try to "optimize" the flex slightly with layup, but geometry is king and you're fighting a losing battle.

The red area shows the difference between the OneUp profile and a traditional, stiff 35mm Dia. bar. Red is bad, Black is good!

The OneUp bar profile minimizes the length of the 35 diameter clamping area, as this is the stiffest portion of any 35 diameter bar. The 35mm clamp diameter quickly changes to a flattened, oval shape in the transition zone and then to a standard 22.2mm clamp diameter for the control zone.

We benchmarked the OneUp bar against the most popular carbon bars on the market as well as foam filled aluminum bars. The results were, on average, a 21% increase in vertical compliance (comfort) coupled with a 28% increase in steering stiffness (responsiveness). These are more than just marginal gains.

Until now the 35mm diameter standard has had a bad reputation and rightly so. This is 35 done right.

EDC STEM
Length: 35mm (157g) 50mm (173g) / 35mm Dia. / 0° Rise / Stem $85 USD Preloader Kit: $30 USD
Colour: Black. Top Caps available in Black, Red, Green, Blue, Orange, Purple & Gold

The OneUp EDC Stem allows you to store your EDC Tool in your steerer tube, without threading your fork. You can also adjust your headset preload without loosening your stem. There's a reason why so many EWS Pro Riders use the OneUp EDC Tool. In the event of mechanical, the EDC Tool is right at your fingertips with everything you need. We wanted to make the tool system available to even more riders, including those with previously incompatible forks and steel or carbon steerer tubes.

The EDC Stem can be used with a regular star nut and top cap like every other stem. It’s also compatible with existing threaded EDC top caps, for people who’ve already threaded their steerer tube. Or you can use the new OneUp Preloader, which lets you store the EDC tool in your steerer without threading it.

LOCK-ON GRIPS
Colours: Black, Red, Green, Blue, Orange & Purple $25 USD

A low profile single lock on, designed to reduce arm pump and hand numbness. The diamond knurled texture, with saw tooth finger ramps and a super tacky 20A compound provide ultimate traction. More traction means less death-gripping the bars and less arm pump. Our single lock has the profile of your favourite double lock-on. But to reduce hand numbness we've replaced the hard outer clamp with extra rubber for greater cushioning of your palm heel. Get all the benefits of an ergonomic grip without the city bike cruiser look!



OneUp Bars, Stems, Grips, New Chain Guides and Flat Pedals are all available in Black, Red, Green, Blue, Orange and Purple so that you can customize your ride.

 Yeah but how they have done it, I can't see it working that well to be honest. A new, clean, greased one on a new fork steerer maybe. A dirty old one that's seen a winter of riding... I just can't see it working properly.

I was wondering last week about the EDC though. How would one preload a headset when using an EDC? Semi torque the stem bolts and then hit it a couple of times with a hammer to tighten the bearing, then fully torque the bolts?

Install it with the star nut and then remove the star nut?

 @jaame: the top of the fork steerer needs to be threaded

 @duzzi: or maybe different riders need different things.

When 31.8 was the only standard, 200+ pound people complained about bars being noodles, so 35 came out. Now 150 pound people complain about 35 being too stiff

Different people need different things. XC is not the same as Enduro and 150lbs is not the same as 250, so different diameters make sense.
  • 10 1
 @Grmasterd: even for those of us north of 200 pounds most 31.8 bars work better. Most 35mm bars are just too stiff and transmit too much shock. Size isn’t everything. I had a set of answer protaper 780mm carbon bars in 31.8 that were so stiff they were unridable. I even gave them to a few people without telling them and had them give them back complaining they killed their arms. The Raceface Sixc 785 carbon in 31.8 has been my goto as a comfortable bar.

 I just got a new bike with 35 RF carbon Next bars, and they are super stiff and harsh. I'm thinking of swapping back to my 31.8 alloy Atlas bars, which flex more and are much more comfortable.

 240lbs here - 35mm was just too stiff. Moved to 31.8 and hands and arms feel much better after longer rides. Also a plethora of cheap stems in 31.8 size. When OneUp makes a tool or stem cap or something that allows preloading headset so that I can run their tool with any stem, I might make the jump. Until then it's hidden in the crank, bars, or bag.
  • 3 1
 @carym: the reasoning that I've heard was that 35mm actually allows building a more compliant carbon bar than what 31.8 offers. There is less clamping force necessary to keep it from rotating in the stem, and carbon does not like high clamping force. So as a result you can keep the bar wall thinner and be more flexible with the layup. Now whether all manufacturers actually put this theory into practice is another thing. It seems that One Up played it really smart. As usual.

 @PHeller: Pretty sure they already offer that.

 @sdurant12: 35 bars were introduced by DEDA in 2012 or earlier.
They were made for road cycling sprinters where stiffness matter more than MTB.

35 is just an excuse to make people buy new stuff... they can make 31.8 as stiff or as flexy as they want.

 @OneUpComponents: I'm not convinced more fore/aft stiffness would really be a good thing especially relative to other 35mm bars. Why can't we all just go back to 31.8mm? I don't think anybody was asking for stiffer bars, and 35mm doesn't seem to provide much if any weight advantage.

  • 22 2
 This process is also called development. If a company was waiting to release a product only when it's perfect, nothing would get released. We've come from noodle bikes to rock hard bikes and realized that rock hard bikes are too uncomfortable and unforgiving. So now it's time to loosen up on the stiffness in the right places and not anywhere else.

haha 160mm-200mm travel forks and we need more compliant handle bars? haha ok.
  • 5 0
 Well you're right that some imporvements are more marketing than engineering, but even the smalles gains are still gains. While boost spacing could have been prevented by taking up DH standards, it doesn't mean it does nothing. Long travel forks help take big hits, compliant bars reduce vibrations. If you still don't believe me, take off your tires and use rubber axle instead. You would still have one flexy rubber component, but wastly different results.
  • 3 0
 @ondrejaugustin: yes Boost does pretty much nothing. They should simply embrace 157. It would improve the chain line on most bikes. And if not Sram and Bontrager could simply pump out asymmetric rims. Or Trek could make offset rear ends. Both solutions offer better triangulation and more even spoke tension than Boost. So I call Boostshit.

@whatyousaid: stiffness at all costs was a BS, things are getting actually good now thanks to fine tuned flex. The problem in handlebar world is, many 31.8 alu bars have really good flex/ strength/ weight.
  • 2 0
 @WAKIdesigns: IMHO Cannondale is on the right track with Ai. The cassette side is the issue for triangulation. It is arbitrary that your rear wheel needs to be symmetric. 148mm was needed but I think all 6mm should have been driveside.

 @OneUpComponents: isn’t even spoke tension and “even” triangulation on both sides more important than having one 3mm more on each side of the uneven turd? Smile like this Super Boost plus insanity where actual wheel company forgot what the hell they are doing while creating most unbalanced wheel in the history of cycling? Smile I am actually getting Hope DH hub for my DJ and I will run 11-28 6speed cluster on it.
  • 1 0
 @WAKIdesigns: yeah I agree about tuned flex...but its just the way the industry presents it as one being better then the other or this flex is the end all be all for everyone...which is BS. Some people may benefit from a stiffer flex some may benefit from a softer flex...its really personal preference and riding style.

Most sports that use carbon fibre for their equipment offer a flex rating. Mountain biking hasn't really tapped into flex ratings yet ...mtb components are geared towards xc/am/dh and the weight/burlieness of the component, you dont ever hear much about different flex options.

Hockey sticks are a prime example of a carbon fibre flex pattern rating system. Softer flex isn't necessarily a bad thing but again it depends on the rider and riding style. Some may benefit from a softer flex some may prefer a stiffer flex.
  • 1 0
 @whatyousaid: off course there will plenty of BS, in fact from the very beginning of carbon in gravity MTB, there's been plenty of BS about "tuned flex", companies saying: thanks to carbon we can design layup so that we get flex where we want and stiffness where we want. Naturally only few actually do it. Talking of bars, RF is a great example of it going wrong, same with carbon rims.

  • 5 0
 Hey @OneUpComponents! I love your products! Hope you don't mind me making a few remarks. The stem resolves one problem (I don't have to tap my steerer), but it also means I can't stack spacers on top. I always keep my steerer length a bit longer in case I want to adjust bar height or switch forks to another frame. Also, the EDC tool can't really be fitted to a DH bike as far as I'm aware because steerer tubes are cut down too much. I use the EDC pump on my trail bike and would love an EDC tool for my DH bike. Anyhow, never mind, I'll probably be buying all of above products at one point!
  • 3 0
 Agreed. The EDC really makes sense for park laps or epic shuttle days on the DH bike. For me, if something was to happen, like a stem bolt loosening up or a flat tire, I hate walking all the way down. It’s often a waste of a good run!

 @vp27 I'd argue that the EDC tool would in fact sit fine in a DH length steerer, so long as you only used the upper portion of the tool, and took off the threaded compartment that's meant for cash, zip ties... Among other things Wink hope that helps

@ tackytraks : You're right, but you then still need to make sure to carry plugs, CO2 canisters etc. I just hate carrying stuff in my pockets, especially on a DH bike. And when you strap stuff, it can rattle, chafe the frame etc. etc. I might as well push these guys a bit right Wink . They always come up with the goods.

 Fits on my V10. I cut the very bottom of the storage tube off to give me a little flat disc, then trimmed the tube to a shorter length and then glued the little disc back on so the overal length fits and I still have storage for my plugs. CO2 canister and regulator go up the seatpost with some foam to stop the rattle. Tube strapped to frame with OneUp strap and I’m sorted for just about anything.

 @kram: Doesn't the EDC tool only fit in tapered steerers though? DH forks have a straight steerer. Would love the carry my EDC on the DH bike but thought it wasn't possible. Do you just not use the bottom plug? I assumed that wouldn't fit in the straight steerer of my Fox 40.

 @freerider11: Just don't use the bottom plug, and shorten or remove the stash tube and it will fit unless you have a very short steerer.
  • 1 0
 @kram: without the bottom plug holding the tool snug in the steerer doesn't it rattle around in there? And does the tool get covered in water/dirt/mud with the bottom completely open like that? If not then I'm going to try this!
  • 1 0
 @freerider11:
I have just remembered that when I switched out my Emerald with a tapered steerer to my Onyx with a straight steerer, I had to remove my stash tube completely, and my plugs went up the seatpost with my CO2. So yeah, you can't really run anything but the tool. I will be able to add the plug inserter thingy that threads into the bottom of the tool kit where the stash tube goes, but don't have one just yet.

As for rattling, I hadn't noticed so far. As for dirt, has not been an issue at all. It's kinda hard to get dirt up that far it seems.

 Oneup is maybe the only company I've bought from that has never failed me in a purchase. Chain guide,cassette expander, chainring, switch chainring setup, and their dropper... it's all been flawless. I already know i want that edc stem!!
  • 4 0
 I’m becoming a total One Up fanboy. Got their pedals and pump. Both just perfectly executed. If my dropper goes out again, I’ll get theirs. The bars look like they might be worth trying, but I think I’d rather stick with the pump to hold their tool instead of the stem.

 the real story here is the preloader built into the stem. No more star fangled nuts to tighten the headset. all the adjustments to setup your fork in your frame are there on the stem. Great job OneUp.

 Does purchasing the stem outright include the preloader kit? Or did I read that pricing as, you need to buy the stem and the preloader kit? The video makes them look completely integrated which then makes the later situation not make sense to me, why not price them together?

 @OneUpComponents will I negate all the sciencey stiffness stuff if I cut these down to 760mm? Also, in terms of strength are these things "DH rated"? I've seen too many snapped carbon bars and now I'm paranoid.

 @OneUpComponents does the new dropper post improve things on the stiction front? I'm finding it extremely difficult to get my seat clamp tight enough to prevent the post slipping without my 170mm dropper binding, despite using friction paste, and even off the bike it's nowhere near as smooth as the 27.2 Thomson I have on another bike. Feels like the upper bushing is mis-sized or something.

Does it still use the same actuation method where the housing moves?
  • 1 0
 @OneUpComponents: Do I understand correctly, with the preloader kit, you won't need to install a star nut OR thread your steerer tube? I.e. the stem clamps secure the fork, and the preloader controls the preload on the headset bearings? That's actually pretty awesome!

 @OneUpComponents: Yeah but carbon handlebars for MTB suck big time. Don't want to buy new bars after crashing and I've already seen to many people injured due to carbon bar failure (because they didn't replaced it after crashing).

 Sunn used to make a pre load spacer like the one on the stem. Been looking for one but can't find any. Much better idea than threading the steerer. Make it a spacer though no need to integrate it into stem.

 Didn’t U.S.E or someone make a headset preload collar like that back in the early 2000s? ????
  • 3 0
 Yes, the Ringo Star. And it was dreadful. Very hard to get sufficient preload, and it came loose as soon as you rode it offroad. Admittedly probably in part due to U.S.E.'s obsession with using miniscule allen bolts for everything.
Early on in the history of threadless steers a few headset manufacturers also tried something similar (Modus and VP I think).

I really hope OneUp have succeeded where these guys didn't....

 @ridealongside: Only 6'. Been on a 200 9.8 since they first became available. If you don't ride the uber steeps of Laguna or BC you don't get it. 9.8 is losing my loyalty because they use a proprietary compound X ring seal that shouldn't go for more than a few $ but they will only sell as part of a $53 kit plus $14 shipping. I'd rather pay more for a new post just as a matter of principle.
  • 1 2
 @tcmtnbikr: That's a pretty unfair attitude. 9point8 has pretty much the best product support I've seen in the industry. You're whinging that a rebuild kit costs more than you'd like, but name another company that makes it that easy to buy internal parts, including updates to legacy products, and has comparably good service instructions. 9point8 is small company making things in Canada, and you really get what you pay for. Their product performance is close to the best, and when it starts to show wear, you can actually service it back to like-new condition.

 @skylerd: Warranty and customer support has been great. But sorry, not sorry, my motorcycle dealer doesn't force me to buy a kit of 25 seals and keys and grease when I only need 1 seal. Nor my auto dealer. Nor does DT force me to buy ratchets when I only need bearings. Nor does SRAM force me to buy caliper pistons and seals when I only need brake pads.

I wouldn't have bought it if it had not been serviceable. Small company doesn't give them the right to gouge. I understand upsell but I doubt many folks would be willing to fork over $67 for an X ring that cost pennies.
  • 1 0
 @tcmtnbikr: seals on the same shaft don't just randomly wear out at different rates. Anyway, rather than buy a new, non-rebuildable dropper, you should probably just call 9point8, cause small businesses that manufacture their own products usually respond to friendly inquiries. That said, you're asking a small business to stock 40 more SKUs for products that they'll lose money on if sold individually (processing an order requires time), when they already provide the best product support in the industry...some people will never be pleased.

 @oneupcomponents have you made a top cap with deeper grooves to stop the tool slipping yet?
  • 1 0
 What do you mean?
  • 1 0
 @dutflip: in my experience when tightening the top cap to preload the bearings, it's easy to slip because the grooves are very shallow, particularly with the edc tool itself. It's soft metal too, so will often chew up the grooves. I posted two reviews about it and also have commented several times on here, without any response. I guess they probably think I'm a heavy handed neanderthal and doing it wrong, but I don't think so.
  • 1 0
 @mulv1976: You're just preloading the headset bearings, doesn't require much torque at all so you shouldn't be chewing up the grooves. Just keep your hand directly on top of the tool/wrench, pressing down as you snug it up. I'm possible for the tool to slip out that way.
  • 1 0
 @freerider11: It's not impossible, as I've done it and so have others. And I know how to pre-load bearings, the problem I was having was that my headset would still have play and need a reasonable amount of torque (not much, but enough), and the slightest misalignment of the tool and it would slip. I feel that this problem would be less likely to happen if the grooves were deeper.
  • 1 0
 @mulv1976: Fair enough. I've just never seen this as an issue on any of the bikes I've used the EDC system on, but I see your point. As I said if you just keep your hand directly on top of it and push down on the tool when you're tightening then there is little chance of it slipping and damaging the grooves. If your headset requires excessive torque to stay tight then maybe there's an issue with your headset?
  • 1 0
 @freerider11: admittedly it is better when pushing directly down, but i still feel they should make the grooves deeper :-). I wouldn't say my headset needs excessive force, but enough to need to put some effort in.

 Hm... is headset preload tuning going to be the next big trend? The preload adjust is purely convenience right? I don't adjust my headset that often after the bearings have settled.
  • 2 4
 Downvotes but no-one has anything to say on the matter.
It's nice and everything (though the concept is nothing new), but not owning the (here somewhat expensive) EDC tool, I fail to see the advantage of being able to adjust your headset without touching the stem bolts when you don't own the tool. Fair enough the stem is a stem, but for 85€ (which seems to be the direct currency exchange for USD these days) I could buy 2 stems, or one and 40ish (60 cans back home) beers. What am I missing?
