Video: We Are One Unveils the Arrival Enduro Bike

Aug 3, 2021
by WeAreOne Composites  

Press Release: We Are One

Homegrown. Homecoming.

Good things begin in the places we know best. The Arrival is proof of what’s possible when a small, dedicated team pours its passion into a single focus: to create a bike of uncompromising quality born on the trails they call home, while being a force of nature on any trail, anywhere. Introducing the Arrival: 100% designed, manufactured and assembled in Kamloops, BC.

Yes, you read that correctly.

The Arrival is 29” and 150mm of corner-smashing excellence that meets at the intersection of fast but fun. It has enough soul to make any rider want to shred all day and enough substance to meet the diverse challenges of the Enduro World Series. Race tested, this bike has already started stacking top-15 finishes piloted by EWS Junior and Kamloops local, Johnathan Helly.

The Arrival is for the aggressive rider who wants a playful bike that balances the ability to hold a line, rail corners, and handle race speeds with confidence. It does not sacrifice comfort or pedal efficiency when it’s turned uphill for another lap.

The Arrival is here. And we’re just getting started.

Design Brief

The 90% Rule
Everyone on the We Are One team came from different backgrounds and each wanted to design bike strengths for a personal advantage. We quickly learned that focusing attention on one aspect, makes others suffer. This learning process led us to what we call The 90% Rule. No bike is capable of being 100% perfect at everything. Maybe we could get close to the dream? We are happy with the result.

Disciplines of Focus
To start, we agreed there would be three main areas of focus: downhill, cross country, and enduro. We connect with these three disciplines the most. We wanted a bike that could handle eye-blurring speed with confidence, tackle legitimately rough terrain with grace, and could still hang with the big bikes. The Arrival also needed the ability to turn uphill and pedal efficiently. It had to have a comfortable cockpit to increase our time in the saddle. We weren’t going to settle until the Arrival checked all of the boxes without sitting inside one.

Ride Feel
We had specific demands with the carbon layup process. It couldn’t feel harsh, a side effect of many carbon bike’s large cross-sectional tubing. The reduced cross-section of our tubes allowed us to increase the fibre density, which gives us the ability to blend fibres, weaves, and UD. The process sacrifices no weight penalty and increases overall strength. We were able to balance the laminate and refine the structure further for a more positive ride feel. The frame construction ensures The Arrival a long life, leaving our customers with confidence and more days on the trail.

The 500 Mile Diet
We are proud to say that 99% of the raw materials used to build the frame come from within a 500-mile radius, with the 1% being titanium fasteners. We’ve broken down the sources and locations where we procure raw materials from below. It takes an ambitious team of dedicated vendors to shift the needle, and we are proud to call many of the teammates behind these North American manufacturer's friends. We celebrate all the trails they have cleared ahead of us, and we would like to tip our hat to them by also utilizing their products on our frames.

500 Mile Diet

No Plastic Packaging
All of our products are packaged and shipped in recycled cardboard. The design of each shipping box seeks the goal of zero plastic. After of our customers have unpacked their products, the entire box and its sub-components can be recycled again.

Additionally, we are striving to improve our ability to reduce our impact, energy consumption, and continue to do so as we mature, and as newer technologies allow us.

Warranty / Fix and Repair
All of our frames will be backed by a We Are One Frame lifetime warranty against manufacturers' defects. We want all of our customers to experience more ride time, and we do our best to make each bike last a lifetime. If we determine a product to be defective due to our work, we will replace it free of charge.

 @WeAreOne: that's an interesting insight I suspect into how much the present day business models favor completes. Nothing wrong with that, but what I think you're alluding too and what we've all seen with pricing (and even availability at all) on framesets over the past five or so years is trending a bit sad face for those of us who like to build!

 @WeAreOne: The bike looks incredible, however I think the claim of 99% of the materials being produced within 500mi of Kamloops warrants a healthy bit of skepticism. I love the thought, and very much hope I'm wrong, but if you're using Toray fibers, those are being produced in Japan, South Korea, France, South Carolina or Alabama. None of these are within 500mi of Kamloops. I'm not sure what resin system you're using, or where the fibers are being prepregged, but most resin systems available in North America are manufactured in Georgia, Alabama, Louisiana and California. Again, none of these are within 500mi of Kamloops. While there are distributors of these materials within 500mi of Kamloops, it does not mean that the materials are sourced from within 500mi. Global supply chains get complicated quickly, any clarifications you could provide would be appreciated.

 @bigdood why do I feel like you don't know the difference between Taiwan and China?

 Priced similarly to a top spec Santa Cruz, but locally made and with carbon rims. Seems like a better deal than a Santa Cruz when considering the part spec.
  • 14 4
 @fjopsys: My guess is you feel that way due to you being an average person unable to deal with nuance and not knowing me personally nor my history of entrepreneurial endeavors, some of which included sourcing and manufacturing offshore - the last of which was a massively profitable business that I chose to walk away from and just close up shop due to personal beliefs. While WAO may have used Taiwan in the past and not China the fact remains many in the cycling and other industries DO use Chinese labor and manufacturing, giving them a huge pricing advantage in the market. I fully understand why some companies choose to manufacture where they do, and realize it's a long process to get away from that dependency (including changing consumer mindsets), I'd rather see those jobs employ folks I see at home or in my close-in travels vs. continuing the AmazonWalmart induced race to the bottom.

 $8,900 for a North American Made frame with an X01 mechanical kit? That's a very competitive price. A similar build kit on an Asian made from Yeti retails for $9,200. Pivot charges $9,400 for an Asian made frame and similar kit.

We Are One is cheaper than most of its competitors, while building sustainably in NA America, and outfitting its bike with other sustainably high end NA products (e.g. Chris King, i9). If you're in the market, it's a phenomenal deal.

The finish on the frame looks phenomenal. Because it has no paint, it's probably lighter than many of its competitors. If I were in the market, this would be high on my list. Congratulations We Are One.
  • 2 0
 I think the main issue will be that they don't offer a cheaper build, though. Does yeti or pivot? You're probably right that if we're comparing to similar gucci builds then could be competitive (to the doctor crowd, anyways). I just can't wrap my head around not offering something more accessible. I'm guessing it's just because they'll only have 100 frames or something to start, so maybe no point offering something with regular old components.
  • 2 0
 @ldhbaker: no one offers a cheap build right now. Find me an SLX equipped bike in stock anywhere.

 @hamncheez: I recently bought a specialized enduro carbon with gx and sram guides off the floor - not fancy but good frame and half-decent components. $6500 CAD including taxes. If assuming today's exchange rate, the cheapest WAO including taxes is $11,900... Big difference (and much more than my wife's ebike). I'm not knocking WAO - they've clearly made this decision intentionally. Kind of like tesla only producing a roadster at first for the elite - WAO likely can't make that many frames right away and so they are catering to the affluent and those who want locally made goods. Hopefully they come down in price eventually, or else they won't be affordable for 98% of us.
  • 1 0
 @ldhbaker: What year Enduro?

For my company, the responses I'm getting from manufacturers is a 18-16 month lead time on components. WAO is wise to not offer lower spec'ed models, when their delivery times would be 2023.

 WaO is a small company. They may have faced difficulty trying to secure parts below the factory fox/X01 level. Once all the craziness calms down I wouldn't be surprised to see a performance/SLX level build for several grand less.
  • 1 0
 @j-t-g: For sure. They are innovating and I commend them for that, it will definitely take time before that manufacturing technology becomes affordable for the average joe. In truth I thought it was frame only when I made the comment. It's a pretty high end spec for that price I suppose, but still a very expensive bike.
  • 4 5
 @j-t-g: Guerrilla Gravity manages to do it for a lot less...
  • 10 0
 @scvkurt03: GG launched well before the pandemic shortage and shut downs. They had established relationships with suppliers. By the time WaO was likely looking to start ordering parts to make completes, most companies had probably already placed orders for LITERALLY YEARS in the future. WaO might have plans for stuff but... maybe their shimano shipment is set to arrive 2023?

Plus the 10k WaO bike has thousands of dollars more of stuff attached to it compared to the top of the line GG. It's really not apples to apples.
  • 3 1
 @scvkurt03: It looks like they're using the same prepreg carbon process as Guerilla Gravity too
  • 1 1
 @j-t-g: Your first point is reasonable, but your second is not. Build a bike on GG's website comparable to the 9k USD build and it comes out just above 7k. Perhaps it's pricier due to your first point, but X01/Zeb Ultimate/Kitsuma/I9 305 doesn't make WAO's build "thousands of dollars more of stuff" better. That you can't get a GG with WAO's top kit doesn't mean you can't compare like builds.
  • 11 0
 @scvkurt03: I just went on GGs website and priced out a Gnarvana with similar (but slightly worse component spec) WITHOUT carbon wheels - for 9100 CAD.

WAOs bike is 9999 CAD WITH carbon wheels. Am I missing something?
  • 1 0
 @jayacheess: Wish I could screenshot. I have Kitsuma, Zeb Ultimate, e13 carbon bars, i9 stem, Revive post, X01 drivetrain, 305 alloy wheels (more on this in a sec), for $7140 USD. Maybe an X2>Kitsuma, maybe a 38>Zeb, but the difference isn't very big, certainly not in price. Revive>Tellis.

305 is an alloy wheel set with Hydra hubs which retail for $1600 USD. WAO's 1/1 wheel set is $1400 USD. At this point in the game, I don't see carbon as a clear cut upgrade. There are plenty of places I'd rather run alloy, including at races. Hydra is clearly a higher end hub.

In terms of pure cost, there isn't $1860 between them, that's for sure.
  • 1 0
 @jayacheess: I also had XTR9210 brakes on that build, which are clearly pricier than the MT5 on the 9k WAO build.
  • 2 0
 @scvkurt03: True enough. I didn't realize those custom build wheels were that much, either.

About carbon rims: I think one of the primary benefits to WAO rims is the lifetime replacement.

But yeah, I agree the GG is a good deal. I don't think their pricing necessarily makes WAO a bad deal, though, depending on your priorities.
  • 2 0
 @jayacheess: I think WAO's pricing is what you'd expect from a NA made carbon bike. Definitely not slamming them, just pointing out that GG's model is pretty remarkable.

I have a set of WAO wheels, which I've loved over their lifetime. I broke two Agents, the last of which was replaced with a Strafe, at their discretion. I didn't know whether to be stoked or insulted. haha

  • 1 0
 @flash5000: I dunno. I basically got the equivalent spec frame to the WAO, but with lower quality components: $6,500. Compared to the lowest possible cost here of $11,340 (depending on which of WAO's costs are accurate). This frame looks sweet, but so, so far out most people's price range (unless it's secretly an ebike). Probably what has to happen for a locally produced boutique bike, though.
  • 2 0
 @ldhbaker: It is about normal for a hand laid up bike. Allied hand lays road frames and they are around $6k USD starting price (and since it is a road bike, it lacks all the stuff needed for suspension that adds costs).

It is expensive but could be worth it if you prize that sort of thing. I do. I am trying to buy as little made in China/ Asia stuff as possible lately. Knowing where my money goes is important to me. Probably is for others as well.

I would like to see some more detail about the frame.

 Looks amazing, and would be stoked to support a local Kamloops company, but at a base of $10k most people won't be interested. Given what I assume is lower production numbers, WAO may be okay with this. I'll take my "affordable" $6,500 carbon competitor's bike, with regular old GX and sram guides, then.

 Pop by one day, we'll show you around and you can see how our bikes are made. Can't say that about most options out there. And like vehicles, trim package spec often is the determining factor in end pricing. We've brought a handmade product to market and it's extremely well priced to the equivalent from any brand - part for part. Thanks,
  • 3 0
 @WeAreOne: I believe it, and I’ve heard lots of good things about WAO from locals here in kamloops. I’d love to buy a locally made bike, but that’s just straight up out of my price range. I’ve never been shy about spending money on bikes, but I’m still not sure I can justify it - kind of like I can’t justify a fancy vehicle with the upgraded trim package. I’m still angling to get a WAO wheel set though!

 @ddspaz: 100% agree. Especially on bikes with such downhill capability.

They even did an article talking about this: www.pinkbike.com/news/importance-of-handlebar-height-mountain-bike.html

From that article:
"For example, the new YT Capra 29 has a five-size range going from small to XXL. YT recommends the small to riders around 160cm, and the XXL to riders of 197cm - that's a difference of 23% in rider height. Across that range the reach goes from 427mm to 507mm - a difference of 19% - but the stack goes from 625mm to 652mm - a difference of just 4%. Another way of looking at it is the ratio of stack to reach goes from 1.46 in the small to 1.29 in the XXL. Surely both can't be right. And I'm not picking on YT here; my point is this is entirely typical."

 For all the complainers about the price... If companies like WAO are not innovating, and producing items that carry the cost of innovation, we would not have brands producing really good products at lower price points.
  • 3 1
 Could be. Likely WAO pricepoint is more related to the high cost of small-run, local production, though. I don't see a whole lot on the frame that is innovative, to be honest. Some people will pay this much for the bike, and good on them, but they are paying for the local feel and 500 mile diet, not innovation.
  • 2 0
 @ldhbaker: I think there is a lot of innovation in the layup that is hidden from the casual eye. Not all carbon is created equally and we have literally chosen and and where to lay each fibre into this bike. The difference in the ride quality, directly as a result of innovation, is undeniable. We have also innovated ways to manufacture here locally, how to source, how to run a different business model. If thats not innovation I'm note sure what is
  • 1 0
 @BicycleHub: I guess that's generally my point though - it's very admirable what WAO is doing with the local feel and a different business model. I'm happy that a local loops company seems to be doing so well, and I'd like to support the company. I suppose I'm just disappointed because I literally can't afford to. I was really hoping the WAO bike would be in some kind of price range that someone like me could justify, but unless you're a doctor, get a deal, or don't have other financial commitments, it's out of reach. For most people the choice will ultimately be one of affordability, and more power to those who can pay more to support WAO's business model innovation.

 Interesting to hear it’s a special coating, came here to say the ‘paint’ finish looks very cool. Love the fade into natural carbon.

 Yes it's a work of art.
My main concern is the warranty. In a world of "no questions asked" warranties, this bike is a "manufacturers defect warranty".
Break it at your next BME and you BUY a new one.
That's a tough sell with something this pricy.

 I could be wrong here, but I'm almost positive that virtually none of the "no questions asked" warranty policies from any companies apply to frames...

 I have two sets of WA1 wheels and I have had to use the "no questions asked warranty" this year. Easily the most painless and efficient one I've ever done. Despite having a 6-8 week lead time on orders like everyone else in the world they prioritize warranty jobs the whole process took less than a week. I've had to warranty a couple of other things over the years and got a middle finger from one and an invoice from another. Congrats WA1! When you do a frame only option I'm ordering one right away.

 I can vouch for their warranty - had a wicked case at a jump skills clinic a few weeks ago on some Agent rims that have had a pretty hard life. Heard a loud crack, looked all over the bike frame and wheels and couldn't see it. Continued to send another few hundred jumps the rest of the day. Next morning, I saw the crack in the rim with sealant dripping out (and still holding air). Filled out the form with a photo and description of 'I cased bad', and $50 USD shipping later they sent me a new rim (this time a Union as that's the newer better Agent).

Learned two things - I don't fear a carbon rim stranding me any more than an aluminum rim, and their warranty is solid. I have a few sets of their rims in the house for the family, and wouldn't hesitate to buy a frame from them.

 With the moderate stacks, it's about the same as a lot of bikes out right now. So for the same bar height you're set. You may just need some spacers.

 Not a bad looking bike. That top tube to seat stay is not attractive, but the rest of it looks quite nice.
$10K entry into the market though..... save them pennies..
