Simply put, this is WAO's best rim to date

With data driven improvements, these rims utilize Convergence Technology that hits 33% stronger and rides 18% more damped than anything WAO has created in the past. This means that when you choose a rim with Convergence technology you are getting a rim that will stay true longer, need less maintenance over time and provide a smooth yet responsive ride feel. The brand focused on strength and ride feel when developing Convergence and they've hit the sweet spot!

Evolution of shape

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 unrivalled durability and prolonged service intervals.


The Convergence lineup comes in three lip-to-lip internal widths

Select the desired width to give the optimal tire profile and feel in order to achieve a confident contact patch and greatly improve the control of the bike. Front rims are designed with a 28-hole drilling pattern while the rear one has a 32-hole pattern.
