Born from innovation, what started as a small company out of Squamish B.C has quickly become the go to brands in enduro, especially when it comes to tools.
With 29 years of combined experience in the mountain bike world, the small team at OneUp set about creating some of mountain biking most worthy and desirable products, not only rescuing many rides but improving them aswell with a solid component range. Beginning in 2015 the team have always been committed to providing not only useful ride saving tools but also to getting more people away from work and out on their bikes, something they are continually working on.
When it comes to partnering with companies, we always look for those who share our values. starting out as a small business ourselves we can appreciate all the hard work and care that OneUp have put into developing such revolutionary products.
We also try our best to protect the trails that make our destinations what they are today as well as protecting the environment as much as possible, like us OneUp have committed 1% of their profits to go towards trail up keep and saving the rainforest.
EDC tool in Ben's Transition Patrol
The EDC Tool
OneUps most recognisable product and arguably the tool that landed them on the map was their Everyday Carry Tool (EDC). This unique product is installed into your steerer tube and contains all the trailside assistance you need on a big day out. The system neatly tucks away and is easily accessible on any ride meaning you will never be left short on a ride again.
Their vibrant green colour makes the tools easy to see from afar and provides a really clean finish to their products. More recently they have also adapted the kit further to include a tire plug kit and CO2 canister should you need it.
The OneUp Chainguide
By far one of the most undervalued components on any bike build the chain guide has always been a heavy, ugly but necessary addition to people's bikes. For a trail bike rider who is looking for a bike that can do it all, saving weight without compromising performance are a dream scenario and something which OneUp has addressed to perfection. The OneUp direct mount chain guide does an incredible job of keeping your chain on the chainring whilst adding minimal weight to your bike. The optional lower bash guard allows you to spec your ride for it's intended use without compromise. The wide array of colourway options make the chain guide a wanted addition to give your bike some added swag as well.
The rough trails in Finale Ligure
Out on the trails
Finale Ligure is home to the EWS and with it some of the roughest and most technical trails you can ride. This is home ground for our team, riding these types of trails day in day out takes a toll on yours and our clients bikes. Unlike Morzine where a bike shop is just a short chairlift away, the trails in Finale Ligure, and in any of our shuttled destinations such as Aosta can leave you with a long walk back to the van in the event of the inevitable mechanical.
When guiding clients this can waste valuable minutes or hours and of course means less time riding on the trails. With the OneUp tool installed problems are quicker and easier to solve, it gives us the confidence that if a mechanical happens to a client or team member, we have all the tools we need to fix it easily accessible on our bikes.
The trail tool range also extends to a class leading pump, that can also house the EDC tool, or other spares you may wish to carry, aswell as the nozzle providing a CO2 inflator. It's the little thoughts and innovations throughout the OneUp range that make them so unique and indispensable for any mountain biker.
