Product Description

OPEN's newest frame comes from the idea of winding detours, hence the name WI.DE. The OPEN WI.DE goes a little bit further than the OPEN U.P., as it's set up more for extreme terrain. Conquer almost any terrain, without slowing down on the easier roads and trails.

This one-off build comes with Sram Force cranks, a GX AXS derailleur, Fulcrum wheels, Easton EC70 bars/ stem, and is set up as a mullet. 

Here are the details: Take an U.P. frame, and massage it to fit a 27.5 x 2.4" or 700 x 46c tire without taking away too much from the bike's geometry. Add in a fourth cage mount under the bottom bracket, a 1.5 cm taller headtube, a slightly lower bottom bracket height, a new XS size, and boom, new bike that handles similarly to the U.P. but has different capabilities.

The WI.DE uses dropped chainstays on both sides to create the massive 2.4" tire clearance. OPEN says this actually increases bottom bracket stiffness, but we dig that this adds more tire clearance while maintaining the road bike-like 420 mm chainstays and maintaining similar geometry in sizes. Despite all of these changes, the new WI.DE weighs exactly the same as the U.P., at 1040 grams for a frame and 390 g for a fork.
