A versatile frameset from OPEN that can be set up to be a very quick road bike, cross, or gravel bike.
The tire clearance allows for up to 40mm wide tires (depending on the tire). This frameset is a great go-anywhere bike that is sure to be suitable for all of your gravel/dirt/trail/ and tarmac riding.
The carbon layup on the U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. is the right blend of the right carbon in the right places. OPEN strategically places the ultra-high modulus (very stiff) carbon where possible and tougher/more compliant grades of carbon where they must making their frames light and durable.
The difference between the U.P. and the U.P.P.E.R. are weight and color:
- The U.P.P.E.R. saves 180g over the U.P. (U.P.: 1040g, U.P.P.E.R.: 880g)
- The U.P.P.E.R. is available in matte black as where the U.P. is available in green and blue. Both bikes are available in RTP (Ready-To-Paint) if you want to go the custom painting route.
There is no difference between the U.P. and U.P.P.E.R. in geometry, durability, stiffness, tire clearance, or capacity.
