We’ve been wowed repeatedly by OPEN’s releases, whether it’s their interpretation of what a gravel bike should be, or their definition of no-detail is too small, or simply how they seem to keep everything as classy as ever.
While everyone is busy launching new gravel rigs these days, OPEN goes a different direction: a road bike. The new Open MIN.D., which stands for Minimal Design, is one sleek machine highlighted by an integrated seattube designed for comfort.
Since it’s an OPEN, you can pretty much assume it will be light. At 870 grams painted in size medium along with a 335 gram uncut (!) disc fork, you bet ya we want one so so bad. Pre-order is open today, with frames shipping before July 20th.
OPEN’s new WI.D.E gravel steed is getting all the buzz at the moment but the company’s forerunning U.P. is still one heck of a bike to reckon with.
The OPEN x ENVE collaboration started about a year ago with its first limited edition that drew its palette from the mountains around Moab in Southern Utah. Now the two firms are back at it again bringing yet another limited edition U.P., nicknamed the “winter edition” to pay homage to the Swiss Alps where the OPEN was born.
Only 60 are available now for $3790 USD/EUR. You’ll get a frame, fork, headset, ENVE G-Series components (bar, stem, seat post), seat tube collar, front & rear Carbon-Ti thru-axle, 2 derailleur hangers, 1 front derailleur mount, 3 MultiStops (2x, 1x, Di2), chainstay cable exit, BB guide, cable liners, noise-reduction foam sleeves, and of course, a manual.
