We Are One Arrival Arrives in New Zealand
No matter what your motive for building a dream bike, it’s comforting to be assured that you won’t encounter multiple clones of your carefully curated new whip at every trailhead. So discerning riders in NZ should be pleased to hear that they now have a new, very rare, hard-to-find and genuinely exclusive option to add to their consideration set.
Makers of boutique Canadian composites We Are One recently released the Arrival, a striking, 150mm travel, dual-link carbon frameset that will be available here in 2022 through distributor 360 Sports.
Designed to be paired with a 160mm fork, the stealthy looking frame is handmade in Kamloops BC from where We Are One have made every effort to build both quality and authenticity into the bike. 99% of the raw materials that make the frame are sourced within 500 miles of their factory and each frame comes with a lifetime warranty.
3sixtysports will be offering the Arrival as a frameset including a Fox Float X2 Factory shock for $6,700, which prices the bike comparably with other North American made carbon options, or can help you build out a complete machine with a spec. worthy of the frame from other brands in their portfolio including Industry Nine/We Are One wheels, Bike Yoke posts and saddles and a cockpit from Renthal.
We’re lucky enough to have the only Arrival currently in NZ at Spoke HQ where it’s getting a shake-down. Initial impressions are that this is a very rapid, contemporary enduro bike well worthy of your attention. Full review to follow when we’ve spent more time in the saddle.
