Last summer we saw We Are One rework their made-in-Canada carbon Arrival all-mountain bike with an updated 152mm & an all-new enduro 170mm travel version. Now, they are back with another shorter-travel 130mm trail iteration, too. And they all go ultra-limited edition, with just 60 handmade Arrivals available for the rest of this year in one of three carefully spec’d builds with some of the best components available on the market today.
Get one while they last…
We Are One Arrival carbon All-Mountain/Enduro adds Trail bike
Carbon frames & wheels laid up by hand in Kamloops, BC, We Are One Composites handcrafts some killer mountain bikes in Canada. But all that hand work means they aren’t churning out thousands of bikes at a time off some automated assembly line. So for the rest of 2023, they’re paring back to their core – what they are calling a ‘Limited Edition Masterpiece’. That masterpiece is their flagship Arrival mountain bike, built up with a premium SP1 component spec.
The Arrival started as a single 152mm 29er trail/enduro platform (named down to 150) just two years ago – then 152 & 170mm. And, now that carbon short-link 4-bar bike has evolved to include 130mm trail, 152mm all-mountain & 170mm enduro iterations. Each shares the same handmade carbon front & rear triangles, with unique lower and rocker links for each travel variant to run different shock lengths & strokes.
This new ‘2024’ Arrival platform gets a new carbon rear triangle that now adds a set of flip-chips to the rear rocker link mount, so riders can switch to a mullet wheel setup if they want – while preserving geometry & suspension kinematics.
It also shifts to the UDH standard for direct compatibility with SRAM’s latest T-type Transmission groupsets – although that also means the Arrival needed a new chain guide since the first generation doesn’t work with T-type chainlines.
The new rear end is backwards compatible with last year’s Arrivals, so existing bike owners can upgrade their ride for $1200, plus a UDH if they aren’t updating drivetrain too. We Are One will also take your old rear triangle back and recycle it if you won’t use it after the upgrade.
New 130mm Trail bike option
The We Are One Arrival 130 is the newest iteration, pairing 140mm fork travel to 130mm out back thanks to shorter links and a 185x50mm rear shock. The Arrival was already envisioned as an aggressive super-trail bike from its inception, so now the shorter travel 130 variant delivers that poppy ride so you can “destroy climbs and fly down fast, flowy single track”.
Other than that, it’s an Arrival. Just like the bigger bikes built to shred everything with progressive modern geometry.
2024 We Are One Arrival Limited Edition – Pricing & Availability
If you haven’t already ordered a We Are One Arrival yet, this is likely the only way you are going to get one in 2023. Only 60 total Arrival bikes are being offered for the rest of the year, in what every split of 130/152/170 bikes riders want.
Each bike Arrival Limited Edition SP1 build carries the same $8300 pricetag. With that you get the latest flip-chip & UDH-equipped carbon frameset made-in-Canada, built up with a SRAM XO Eagle AXS Transmission, We Are One Canadian-carbon Convergence wheels on Industry9 Hydra hubs (rim spec to match bike type), We Are One’s own Da Package bar & stem, and top-tier RockShox Ultimate suspension.
