Impact Strength

Taking our time and diving deep into testing, we came up with the perfect balance of weight, strength and ride feel. Drawing on all of our data from Union 29 and Union 27.5 rims, we built a new test protocol and focused on single-wall impact failures. We introduced a new ZRT material from Boston Materials and placed it in critical areas. We completely redesigned the layup of each rim from the ground up, changing all possible orientations, angles, and processes.

The result is a 29 and 27.5 rim with 32% improved in impact strength over the rims we tested.

Interface

Traditionally, the interface of where the nipple sits in the rim has never been ideal. The Convergence's external shape drives the internal profile. With 7.5° alternating faces, when drilled, it gives the nipple the perfect perpendicular angle with no point loading. This feature improves fatigue on the nipples and spokes, providing unrivaled durability and prolonged service intervals.

The Convergence rim is an evolution of shape that radically changes how the spoke and rim interact.

Ride Feel

Using the Revolution line of rims as a benchmark, we aimed to improve an already fantastic ride experience. By reducing the depth of the rims to 18.5mm and working on both laminate orientations and materials, we isolated the cause of both the radial and lateral levers of the rim design. The Convergence gives the rider a data-backed increase in lateral stiffness and a wheelset that dampens the rough chatter of the trail. The Convergence line of rims offers the best ride experience to date.


The best of everything, in one rim.
