OPEN Bike's motto is, working hard to stay small, and they’re doing a bang-up job with a tight niche lineup of superbly performing versatile gravel bikes. Since 2012 this boutique Swiss bike brand has been creating bikes based on what the two owners would ride, luckily these industry veterans know a thing or two about how to design lightweight, versatile, and high-performance gravel bikes. Each of their models offers the ability to run multiple wheel sizes while providing drop-bar speed, efficiency, and handling.
OPEN Gravel Bikes
OPEN gravel bikes are incredibly versatile and pack in big tire fun with road bike handling. The U.P. and WI.DE are designed for gravel adventures with wider tire clearance and sharp handling, while the WI.DE packs in more tire clearance for aggressive rough-terrain riding. Get ready for some of the most versatile and downright fun gravel bikes.
The OPEN U.P. blends the worlds of road and mixed-terrain riding in an ultra-versatile gravel bike that leaves the possibilities of where you can go wide open. A light and stiff carbon frame paired with skinny tires and a road geometry keep handling fast and efficient. While a dropped drive chainstay and a fork that accepts a wide range of tires, up to nobby 2.1”, allow for unstoppable exploring even when the terrain gets rough.
The OPEN WI.DE takes rough-road riding to the next level with ample tire clearance while still having the mannerisms and feel of a road bike. WI.DE impressively tackles technical singletrack by accepting a tire clearance up to 2.4”. With aggressive geometry and a stiff, lightweight carbon frame, you can climb and maneuver with the efficiency of a road bike. This impressive drop bar ride is the perfect blend of a road racer and mountain bike for the ultimate ultralight rough terrain bike.
The OPEN MIN.D is focused on a perfect balance of stiffness and comfort for long days in the saddle on smooth or rough roads. While it steers clear of the race crowd, it shines on endurance road rides with a lightweight, stiff carbon frame that superbly climbs and descends high-elevation passes with ease. The MIN.D’s geometry, clearance for road tires up to 32mm, and continuous seat tube design give it sensationally sharp handling and an incredibly comfortable feel on rougher roads.
