Not your standard wakeup call. Remi Gauvin of the Rocky Mountain Race Face Enduro Team gets a special delivery from RF. Riding out of Squamish, BC, Remi hooks up the wider rim on Next R36 with wider rubber to give him a traction advantage on the ups and the downs.

 2 year guarantee? Vs. lifetime warranty for We Are One's (which are made right here in BC), why would anyone buy these?
  • + 0
 It is definitely worth noting the fine print of any Lifetime Warranty versus a No Fault Guarantee that covers rims, spokes and hubs (down to the bearings), as well as Lifetime Crash Replacement options. You can learn more about our warranties on our site!

 Kind of a terrible release. No info on the wheels and they’re not even up on the website. What’s the deal @raceface?
Great riding though!

 Carbon wheels ride sooo good But ... Hope it doesnt cost anybody races. Carbon just needs one off line big rock and your weekend is gone. Inserts or not - or maybe im just too heavy at 180

 have you shredded a bunch of carbon rims? I weigh 200 lbs, I ride stans carbon rims and they have done quiet well (ie no issues except a few broken spokes). Maybe I ride to0 slow.

 @hogfish: yes.

Its racing (enduro) thats no good. If you get off line at warp theres a good chance you smash something. And if its square rocks your weekend can be done.

Just a bummer after the time you put in, travel, and financial investments. Id rather minimize the mechanical risks.

People run carbon. Its not for the dumbasses like me who get race boners and ride at or just past their limits.

 Dude I ride 38mm rims and a 3" tire on my 27.5+ bike and it feels mint....wouldn't 2.3 - 2.5 inch tires flatten out too much?
  • + 2
 They would definitely feel weird. Its pretty much marketing bullshit. I had 29mm rima and it felt so slow and wonkey. So now I only ride rims inbetween 23-25.

 Wider means traction.... Take home of the day.

 No thanks.. more thanks. More traction, more strength you gotta put into every single pedal stroke
