OneUp Components is a passionate team of riders dedicated to bringing genuine value to mountain bikers around the world. We design, engineer, ride and ship the products we want on our bikes from Squamish, BC, Canada.

OneUp started in 2013, when three friends and mountain bike engineers launched a unique product to solve a problem they had on their bikes. At the time, they wanted a wider gear ratio without having to replace their whole drivetrain. This led to OneUp’s first product: the 42T Expander Sprocket. They quickly found out that riders everywhere wanted to improve their rides, for less, too. OneUp has been expanding its product line ever since.
