SOC18: OneUp Components

Canadian based company OneUp Components was established after a group of engineers from RaceFace quit their jobs to venture into a new journey. OneUp began developing parts that gave a 10-speed drivetrain an equal or similar range to the emerging 11-speed drivetrain. SRAM later launched Eagle 12-speed offering a huge range of gears never before seen. OneUp transition the company into making other innovative parts such as bash guards, chain guides, pedals and more. At the 2018 Sea Otter Classic OneUp debut their all-new dropper post along with a few other cool new components.  If you haven’t seen OneUp’s new dropper we highly advise you to click here. If you already have, then stick around for some other cool new stuff.

OneUp launched these cool new front axles not only to enhance the look of your bike but to increase stiffness too. OneUp didn’t design these axles to save weight, however, they are likely lighter than a stock axle, instead, the new axle was designed to maximize the stiffness of your fork. Don’t believe it, just ask Richie Rude. After riding hard enough to snap his front axle, OneUp designed this one to withstand the abuse.
OneUp’s EDC system gives riders the tools they need safely secured in their headtube. The EDC system isn’t exactly new, but this version features a new Dnya Plug style attachment so riders can quickly seal a punctured tubeless tire. A 12-speed chain breaker was also added to help riders solve trailside problems. The multi-tool from the previous version remains in the system. 
Here’s a closer look at OneUp’s new EDC tool.
OneUp also introduced a new line of aluminum pedals which can be purchased in Red, Green, Grey, Black or Blue. Matching EDC top caps can be had with the same five color options. These pedals retail for $125.
