Faction Hydra 29in Boost Wheelset
We Are One may be a smaller company at the moment, but this low-key group of passionate trail lovers will be making waves. The Faction Hydra 29in Boost Wheelset comes from a shop in Kamloops BC, Canada courtesy of Dustin Adams and his crew — a friendly group of trail-hunters who love big-log campfires and oddly, an evening of MTB hill-climbing, lit with rows of string lights and headlamps. Back to the wheels, which are hand-laid in house and built with a high degree of precision. Molds are custom made to which the wheel-specific carbon strands are layered. For the Faction trail-oriented wheel — which is part of the Revolution Line of rims — a 21mm depth and 27mm inner width were settled on to provide the swiftness and durability in balance to ensure an appropriately rowdy run on your medium travel bike. The Faction is offered only in 29in at this time, but it can support tires from 2.1-2.5in in width to find fast-rolling and optimum grip no matter where your trail system may be.
We Are One partners with Industry Nine to build rims around the stellar Hydra hub system, offering 32-hole spoke lacing and a precision hub with extremely fast 0.52 degrees of engagement. The boost spacing fits the majority on trail bikes on the market, and with We Are One’s lifetime warranty — while riding — you can move these rims from bike to bike with confidence that you’ll be covered.
