The OPEN U.P. ENVE Edition is Born to the Purple

Written by Contender Bicycles, on March 03, 2021

The phrase "born to the purple" isn't used too often these days. Originally used to refer to children born of prominent, high-ranking, or royal parents, it distinguishes children born specifically during a parent's reign. Therefore, it only makes sense that an OPEN Cycle and ENVE Composites collaboration dons a color as regal as purple. This OPEN U.P. ENVE edition is not only the effort of two companies at the top of their game, but perhaps the most special limited-edition OPEN U.P. yet. OPEN UP ENVE Edition side profile This royal OPEN U.P. ENVE Edition frameset is more than just a frame, fork and headset. Instead, the package includes:
  • OPEN NEW U.P. custom painted frameset
  • ENVE custom compact handlebar, stem, and seatpost
  • BROOKS C13 saddle with custom anodized rivets
  • Custom painted front and rear fender
The OPEN U.P. ENVE Edition Frameset Package is $4,320. Designed by Jonny Hintze of ENVE, this colorway is inspired by the iconic sunsets of Southern Utah over red rock. With just 30 complete kits available, we made sure to order in a full size range. The ENVE M525 Wheelset with custom color-matched stickers that you see in the photos are optional and can be ordered from us in addition to the frameset. If you already own a set of ENVE M525 Wheels, we have the color-matched decals available at the shop. Please contact us if you are interested in the OPEN x ENVE collaboration wheelset or the matching decals. While both OPEN and ENVE make some of the best components and bicycles on the market, this collaboration brings together their best attributes in a unique tribute to the beautiful state of Utah. A royal package indeed. We have a full size run of this very limited frameset in stock at the shop! Give us a call during shop hours, or send us an email at to get one for yourself.
