The OPEN WIDE ENVE Edition is a Celebration of Adventure

Written by Alvin Holbrook, on March 03, 2021

OPEN is no stranger to collaborations, having even done them in the past with ENVE for, SRAM, or Ultradynamico for collaboration frames. But the OPEN WIDE ENVE Edition took it a step further, featuring the ENVE Adventure fork and unique topo-inspired paint. With the popularity of the first 100 ENVE Edition frames, OPEN and ENVE have teamed up again for a reissue of one of our favorite collaborations yet.

OPEN UP Enve Edition

The OPEN WIDE is unique for its road bike-like weight and geometry. After all, the ability to use a massive 27.5 x 2.4" or 700c x 46mm tire without compromising geometry is no joke. And while their stock colors grey, orange, or turquoise are beautiful in their own right, special edition frames tend to spice things up.

Every so often, however, OPEN's collaboration frames make a detour in paint and scheme, and the WIDE ENVE Edition follows suit with something truly unique. The green to yellow fade invokes the lust for adventure we as cyclists have. Just before the color gradient is unique topographic detail, similar to the Matte Bourbon custom-painted WIDE we had painted here. What that bike didn't have, however, is the individually-numbered frame detail by the bottom bracket letting the owner know exactly what frame they have out of 100 frames available worldwide.

Complementing the limited edition frame is a color-matched fork, utilizing the new ENVE Adventure fork rather than a standard OPEN U-Turn fork. The ENVE Adventure fork features three accessory mounts on each fork leg, axle flip chips to tune your ride, as well as internal dynamo routing for powering lights or electronics. Besides supporting a local company in Utah, the ENVE Adventure fork can fit up to a 29 x 2.3" tire or a larger still 27.5 x 2.6" tire as well. Beautiful and functional.
