It's a big day for the We Are One crew in Kamloops. After some unexpected delays, they're finally able to lift the lid on the highly anticipated Arrival 170 as well as an updated Arrival 152, which includes - get this - price reductions. The release and important details are below - as well as a video, of course - but we've also got Andrew Major's first look about the new Arrival 152 here, and will follow that up with Cam McRae's first look about the Arrival 170 tomorrow.

Press Release | We Are One Composites

Building on last year's Arrival momentum, We Are One Composites is excited to announce the all-new Arrival 170 and updated Arrival 152 models, with new colorways and build kits.

After two seasons of racing and bagging podiums on the EWS, the long-awaited Arrival 170 is set to take center stage. Proven to be fast, nimble, and able to win. The Arrival 170 benefits from the same chassis as the Arrival 152. The intelligent modular design allows the Arrival 170 to harness its powers with newly tuned upper and lower rocker links that drive the sporty 205 x 65 RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate Coil shock. The Arrival 170 raises the level of performance that you should expect from a proper Enduro Bike and delivers a winning ride. 

For 2023, the coveted Arrival 152 frame remains almost exactly the same, with a few detailed improvements. The upper rocker link has shaved 50g with a bonded carbon fiber bridge between the two in-house CNC'd aluminum halves. The lower link has also been optimized for function and to showcase the machined tool paths we have come to love. The Arrival 152 is the workhorse trail bike that is the worst-kept secret on the market today.

The Arrival 170 and 152 will come in two new colour options: Avocado and Toast. These earthy tones match those of our hometown Kamloops, BC's landscape, where they are entirely manufactured and assembled. Each bike is handmade by our laminate team and will be individually assembled in a made to order fashion with a two-tier spec, SP1 and SP2.

The most notable change for 2023 spec is the switch to RockShox Suspension and complete SRAM XO1 Eagle AXS and GX Eagle AXS drivetrains. The SP1 build will get the all-new 2023 RockShox Lyrik Ultimate, featuring the new Charger 3 damper, Buttercup System, and air bleed ports. Out back, the 2023 RockShox Super Deluxe Ultimate takes over with the newly redesigned RC2T damping and hydraulic bottom-out protection. The show stopper that only comes on the SP1 build is the soon-to-be-released We Are One Convergence wheels. Drop it like it's hot!

The SP2 brings value for days! The 2023 riders get the RockShox Lyrik Select+ up front and RockShox Super Deluxe Select+ out back. The SRAM Eagle AXS drivetrain is a massive upgrade and sets the tone for the future of wireless drivetrain technology. Our trusty Revolution Union wheelset rounds out this unreal value machine!

"What excites me about the 2023 Arrival 170 and 152 is our ability to share the passion and commitment of our team. Our grit and drive comes to life, and our customers get a unique experience on the trails. It's truly an amazing amount of effort, and these bikes are on another level," said Dustin Adams, We Are One's founder and CEO.

"The Arrival is more than just a quick and capable tool, meant to go up and down any hill.

Every aspect of it is meant to communicate with the rider in a visceral way.

The organically shaped surfaces and curves are persistent in showing their character by casting deep shadows and razor-sharp highlights, regardless of its surroundings. Throw a leg over the Arrival, and it wakes up this eagerness to try and push. Be it a tiny bit more in that transition, brake a bit later into the next corner, or maybe try that triple on the side of the trail that you've been secretly eyeing up. The confidence and precision that the Arrival urges the rider to experiment playfully and simply." added Vladimir Yordanov, Arrival's Designer.

The 90% Rule

Everyone on the We Are One team came from different backgrounds, and wanted to design bike strengths for their personal advantage. We quickly learned that focusing attention on one aspect, makes others suffer. This learning process led us to what we call The 90% Rule. No bike is capable of being 100% perfect at everything. But, maybe we could get close to the dream? We are happy with the results.

The 500-Mile Diet

We are proud to say that 99% of the raw materials used to build the Arrival frames come from within a 500-mile radius, with 1% being titanium fasteners. It takes an ambitious team of dedicated vendors to achieve such a goal. We are proud to call many of these like-minded North American Manufacturers friends. We recognize and respect all of their work to help clear the path ahead of us, and we would like to tip our hat to them by utilizing their products in our production.

Warranty / Fix and Repair

Our frames will be backed by a We Are One lifetime warranty against manufacturers' defects. We want all of our customers to experience more ride time, and we do our best to make each bike last a lifetime. If we determine a product to be defective due to our work, we will replace it free of charge. We will also do our best to keep the frame from being recycled. We have the experience to repair almost any damage that is deemed to be safe to do so, keeping the bike out on the trails longer, and its lifecycle at a maximum.

It upsets me that we cannot make a bike for everyone. Trust me when I say this.

There are just so many different sizes and shapes in the world. I am conceding that we only could target the majority. This isn't due to any other reason than a financial one. 

As we gain hold of the beast that is frame manufacturing, we will add and reduce The Arrival's size. All I can ask is for patience in the process.

Many thanks

This seems to me the right place to ask this question: why companies are not making size S anymore (or a modern equivalent to it)?

Also, there's no seat tube lenght in the chart and i'm struggling to understand how these sizes fit to different inseam people.

Yes i checked the press release (not a single word on geo) and the website too.

I'm clearly not getting something.

@danithemechanic - How tall are you? The Arrivals' stand over is so low that we've seen riders in the low 5 foot range riding them with a few changes to seat posts and stems. In the case of Carbon manufacturing vs alloy, the cost to make a mold is vs overall demand can be a factor when deciding what molds you can create at a given time. I hope this helps?

My question wasn't based on how tall am i but rather in understanding the reasons behind the choiche of developing a spectrum of sizes that might not be enough to cover all humans, the shortest but also the tallest.

Since lately geometries have been going to extremes toward the tallest, i was curious to understand why the trend looks like some companies don't bother anymore selling bikes to short people.

Since yours is a beautiful bike that creates a lot of interest (i couldn't find a negative comment on pinkbike about it!) it felt like a good opportunity to ask.

You made clear it's about cost investments in production, but how you determine which size of people could be your main customers? Is it based on a research or you compromise over the geo on the two end of the spectrum sizes hoping it would fit all but some?

A certain manufacturer's rep once told me that 85% of their sales were covered by size medium and large (XS, S and XL represented 15% of their sales).

As a tall rider with a long inseam who needs an XL frame (pref with a 440 - 455 mm chain stay) I think that at least 80% of R&D should go into making my XL bike perfectly balanced but that is not how the design & marketing teams see it.

Hey Dan, short people have been living the good life for way too long, it's time for the tall guys and gals to now have stuff that fits properly :-p You know bikes that you don't look like a circus bear on, toilet bowls that don't hit you mid way up the shin, sinks that aren't below your "bits", doors you don't have  to duck or take a stride under so you don't "ground off" all that shit, ya know :LOL:
