Faction Vesper 29in Boost Wheelset
For an exceptional trail riding experience, the Faction Vesper 29in Boost Wheelset from We Are One is a worthy option. 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 Vesper 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. 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 form 2.1-2.5in in width to find fast-rolling and optimum grip no matter where your trail system may be.
We Are One partner with Onyx Race Products to build rims around the unique Vesper hub system, offering 32-hole spoke lacing. The Vesper uses a sprag clutch mechanism to provide instantaneous engagement to help you pop over boulders and more massive roots on course. And when coasting down the single track, the Vesper remains silent compared to traditional hub ratchet noise. So enjoy the sound of the tires against the dirt and the wind by your ears, and leave the wildlife a little calmer as well. 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.
